Industry

The most popular professional field seems to be the retail industry. Curiously, the high SAT results reported by Southeast Missouri alumni do not result in top-paid positions in the workforce — in fact, this group brings home rather low salaries. The average salary for a grad from Southeast Missouri is $38K.

Gender

A gender wage gap becomes apparent after college, with female graduates earning only about $30K on average compared to $93K for male graduates.

Locations

It is no surprise that St. Louis, Mo., which hands out the biggest paychecks (the average salary is approximately $104K), is another of the most popular spots for former Southeast Missouri students. Among popular cities, the lowest average pay is found in Cape Girardeau at around $80K. Regardless of salary, a large portion of Southeast Missouri State University grads opt to live in the area following graduation.

Degree Major

A Bachelor of Science in Bachelor of Science (BS / BSc) will compensate Southeast Missouri grads at a much higher rate than other degrees — these alums rake in $121K on average per year. Ranking last in the compensation department are those holding a Bachelor's Degree — their annual income amounts to $64K on average.

Skills

Proficiency in Customer Service is common among Southeast Missouri alumni, and when it comes to using it on the job, one in five former students report doing so. For former Redhawks, proficiency in Accounting warrants a paycheck that is double other alumni salaries. In addition, those who are savvy in Microsoft Excel, Data Entry, and Accounting are also considered highly skilled.

Benefits and Perks

Some take advantage of an attractive benefits package; a strong majority of alums are paid for both vacation and sick time. A large number of former students set up a 401(k) to save for retirement. For this school, a large number of alums are the recipients of health benefits, and a majority of graduates pick up dental plans, too. Other benefits that Southeast Missouri State University alumni receive are a casual working environment, a company-subsidized cell phone, life insurance, and flexible hours.

Related Schools

Compensation averages approximately $46K for Austin Peay State University alumni, making their earnings most comparable to Southeast Missouri grads. Other schools similar to Southeast Missouri include Murray State University, the University of Southern Indiana, and Western Kentucky University.
