The financial services industry, the school district industry, and the health care industry are just a few of the areas in which NJCU grads find work. The education industry registers as the most common industry among alumni. Starting salaries of around $53K are the median among NJCU grads.


There's a noticeable difference between the genders; where the average man hauls in $63K after graduating from NJCU, the average woman earns only $51K.


For reasons other than money, NJCU grads are most commonly found still living in Jersey City, N.J., where median pay sits at the bottom of the pay scale ($42K). NJCU alumni in search of the largest paycheck, on the other hand, will find it in Lakewood, N.J. where about $73K is the average pay. Neighboring Newark, N.J. is another common pick among NJCU grads, along with Paramus, N.J.

Degree Major

Among the highest-paid NJCU alumni are those with a Bachelor of Science in Finance — they earn close to $92K on average per year. A B.A. in Art History is less advantageous in terms of earnings; alums with this degree are the lowest earners with a median annual pay of approximately $38K.


Competency in People Management translates into above-average pay for former Knights — they earn 52 percent more than their fellow graduates. Many former NJCU students are familiar with Microsoft Office, and roughly an eighth of grads move on to positions where this experience is utilized. Also considered top-notch skills are Project Management, Customer Service, and People Management.

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 four survey participants, respectively). A fair number of graduates set aside retirement funds in an employer-sponsored 401(k). Health benefits extend to a fair number of alums, and more than half of alumni also receive dental coverage. Other benefits that New Jersey City University alumni receive are life insurance, a casual working environment, supplemental maternity leave, and private medical insurance (pmi).
