Industry

Graduates of FAMU head into a range of vocations when it comes to work; the health care industry, the health care services industry, and the architectural services industry are just a few professional areas popular among alumni. Among FAMU grads, the education industry is a commonly chosen career field. FAMU graduates in the aerospace and defense industry are hard pressed to find, with less than five percent of former students taking up work in this field. Following graduation, FAMU students earn an average of $64K.

Gender

A gender wage gap becomes apparent after college, with female graduates earning only around $58K on average compared to $76K for male graduates.

Jobs

FAMU grads who become Software Engineers are compensated well above average — these folks are top-earners among their graduating class, making an average approximately $95K yearly. Also notably well-paid are Associate Professors and Process Engineers; their salaries approach $81K and about $72K, respectively. Web Designers face rather mediocre compensation — average salaries are actually the lowest at $46K.

FAMU alumni like Tallahassee so much that they tend to stick around after graduation, with roughly a seventh of grads staying on to find permanent employment. Washington, DC is also a common destination for FAMU grads and offers the best pay with a median salary of about $82K.

With a median annual earnings of around $93K per year, former Rattlers who have a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (CS) are the best paid among the alumni population.

Former Rattlers with Data Analysis abilities can expect to make 27 percent more than their former classmates ($82K). Project Management is a common skill among FAMU alumni — close to one-sixth of grads mention using it at work. Experience with Microsoft Excel, Customer Service, and Microsoft Office is highly valued as well.

Benefits and Perks

Though vacation and sick days are paid for some, these benefits are reported by the minority of graduates (two-fifths of alumni and one in three grads, respectively). For this school, most grads are the recipients of health benefits, and a strong majority of former students pick up dental plans, too. A large number of graduates take advantage of a 401(k) plan.
