Industry

FAMU alumni can most commonly be found in the health care industry, the health care services industry, and the architectural services industry, though they are employed throughout a wide range of sectors. The most popular career sector among alumni is the education industry. On the other end of the spectrum is the construction industry, which attracts less than five percent of FAMU alumni. FAMU graduates see an average starting salary of approximately $65K.

Locations

FAMU alumni seem to appreciate living in Tallahassee, and close to a seventh of grads actually choose to stay and find employment here after completing their coursework. FAMU grads also flock to New York, N.Y., which is home to salaries significantly above average (median pay is $104K).

Former Rattlers with Data Analysis experience garner salaries that are 26 percent more than other grads' salaries.

In an effort to save up for the years ahead, a large number of respondents contribute to a 401(k). For this school, a large number of graduates are the recipients of health benefits, and a strong majority of survey participants pick up dental plans, too.
