Graduates of SFA head into a range of vocations when it comes to work; the health care industry, the oil and gas field services industry, and the oil and gas exploration industry are just a few professional areas popular among alumni. The most highly represented industry among alumni is public K-12 education. Following graduation, SFA students earn an average of $52K.
After college, a notable gender gap appears: the average female graduate makes $50K where the average male graduate hauls home about $64K.
Among SFA graduates, the biggest earners are Corporate Controllers, who haul in $91K on average. Next on the list are Accounting Managers and Operations Managers, bringing in $70K each. Relative to other positions, compensation dwindles for Retail Store Managers; alumni in this role face average salaries of around $39K.
Houston is filled with SFA grads. With a median salary of approximately $71K, San Antonio represents the highest-paid city popular among SFA grads. Many former Lumberjacks can't resist staying in Nacogdoches after graduating despite the median salaries there ranking lowest among popular cities ($44K). Other popular cities for SFA alumni include nearby Dallas and Lufkin.
With annual earnings of $107K per year, former Lumberjacks who have a Bachelor of Science in Forestry are the best paid among the alumni population. Graduates holding a B.A. in Bachelor of Arts (BA) fare the worst in terms of compensation with yearly salaries of around $33K.
Knowledge of Project Management seems to be related to bigger paychecks; in fact, skilled alumni bring in salaries that are 41 percent more than their former classmates' salaries (about $74K). Roughly an eighth of grads report using Microsoft Excel as part of their job, making it the most popular skill. Competency in Microsoft Office, Customer Service, and Project Management also warrants excellent retribution.
Just two-fifths of alumni enjoy paid vacation and merely one-third of alumni get paid sick time. Most grads report contributing to a 401(k). Benefits are rather generous for graduates of this school; most former students are rewarded with health insurance and a majority of the survey participants report dental coverage, too. Alumni of Stephen F Austin State University also take in life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, a casual working environment, and tuition reimbursement.
Alumni of Tarleton State University pick up average paychecks of $52K, which is closest to the amount made by SFA grads among similar schools. Other schools similar to SFA include Northwestern State University of Louisiana, The University of Texas at Tyler, and the University of Louisiana-Monroe.
