Industry

Former FAMU students are professionally suited for a wide range of fields including the health care industry, the architectural services industry, and higher education. A large chunk of former FAMU students are employed in the education industry; in fact, this is the most popular job sector for this population. Former FAMU graduates tend to bring in $59K.

Jobs

FAMU grads who become Pharmacists are compensated well above average — these folks are top-earners among their graduating class, usually making approximately $96K yearly. Also notably well-paid are Associate Professors and Project Architects; their salaries approach around $80K and $70K, respectively. Account Managers get the short end of the stick when it comes to salary, where grads report making an average of about $41K in this job.

Locations

When it comes to compensation, Tallahassee brings up the rear (median pay is $39K); however, approximately one-seventh of FAMU alumni still choose not to leave this city. FAMU grads with a different agenda may consider the above-average salaries in Dallas — pay averages to $81K. Graduates of FAMU also relocate to Orlando, which is not far away, and Miami.

Degree Major

With annual earnings of $115K per year, former Rattlers who have a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy are the best paid among the alumni population. Graduates holding a bachelor's degree in social work fare the worst in terms of compensation with yearly salaries of $37K.

Skills

Former Rattlers with Leadership experience garner salaries that are 60 percent more than other grads' salaries. FAMU alumni are often well versed in Project Management, with around a seventh of grads ending up in jobs that require this skillset. Competency in Microsoft Excel, Customer Service, and Microsoft Office also warrants excellent retribution.

Benefits and Perks

When it comes to benefits, there is room for improvement — only half of the alumni are paid for vacation and just one in three grads for sick time. A solid majority of alums plan for retirement by taking advantage of a company-sponsored 401(k) program. It is no small feat that a solid majority of former students are given health coverage, and most alumni accept dental insurance. Other benefits that Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University alumni receive are life insurance, tuition reimbursement, a casual working environment, and flexible hours.

Related Schools
