Industry

The public relations, marketing, and special events industry, the arts, entertainment, and recreation industry, and the consulting industry are just a few of the areas in which Conn grads find work. The marketing, advertising, and media management industry registers as the most common industry among alumni. Median pay for those who graduated from Conn amounts to about $57K.

Gender

After graduation, disparities in salary rise to the surface — males earn an average $71K per year compared to females' $48K.

Jobs

Human Resources Directors win the contest for best-paid Conn alumni, making $83K on average every year, though Credit Analysts ($60K), and Executive Assistants (around $52K) are not far behind. Case Managers get the short end of the stick when it comes to salary; grads report making an average of approximately $35K in this job.

Locations

A large number of students head to New York, N.Y. after college. Another city that attracts a wealth of Conn grads is Olympia, Wash.; given its high compensation ($120K is the average salary), the city's popularity should come as no surprise. Washington, DC is a popular spot for former Conn students at the opposite end of the pay scale; in fact, average salaries there are the lowest at around $43K. Other common destinations include Boston, Mass. and Los Angeles, Calif.

Degree Major

A graduate with a B.A. in Government from Conn can rake in a whopping average $93K per year, more than any other degree from this school. Graduates holding a B.A. in Environmental Studies fare the worst in terms of compensation with an average yearly salary of $32K.

Skills

Connecticut College grads with Microsoft Excel abilities can expect to make 59 percent more than their former classmates (approximately $90K). Just over a fifth of grads report using Project Management as part of their job, making it the most popular skill. In addition, those who are savvy in Data Analysis, Financial Analysis, and Strategic Marketing are also considered highly skilled.

Benefits and Perks

When it comes to benefits, there is room for improvement — only two-fifths of alumni are paid for vacation and just one in five survey participants for sick time. Health coverage is awarded to the vast majority of survey participants, and dental insurance is issued to a fair number of respondents as well. The vast majority of graduates opt for a 401(k) to save for retirement. Alumni of Connecticut College also take in a casual working environment, life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, and 403(b).

Related Schools

Among alumni of similar schools, Sarah Lawrence College grads (who make an average of about $56K) earn salaries most similar to Conn alumni. Wesleyan University, Trinity College, and Wheaton College are also similar to Conn.
