Industry

Truman alumni can most commonly be found in the education industry, the consulting industry, and the health care services industry, though they are employed throughout a wide range of sectors. The health care industry is the sector most highly represented among alumni. Given the high SAT scores reported by Truman grads, their lower-than-average salaries are somewhat surprising. Starting salaries of $49K are the median among Truman grads.

Male graduates of Truman out-earn their female counterparts significantly, earning an average of about $61K versus $42K for women.

Jobs

Among Truman alumni, those working as Staff Accountants report the highest median pay of $44K, followed by Marketing Specialists ($40K). Marketing Coordinators face rather mediocre compensation — average salaries are actually the lowest at around $38K.

Locations

Many Truman grads end up living in St. Louis, Mo., deeming it the most popular city for former students of this school. It is also not uncommon to find former Truman students living and working in Kansas City, Mo. — this top-paying city is a popular destination with a median salary of approximately $71K. On the other hand, Truman alumni who end up in Overland Park, Kan. receive the lowest median salary of about $42K. Nearby Jefferson City, Mo. is also a top pick for Truman grads, as is Rockford, Ill.

Degree Major

A Master of Business Administration (MBA) leads to the highest pay for Truman grads ($102K on average per year). A B.A. in Communication commands less pay, and these degree-holders face median pay of $34K.

Skills

Former Bulldogs with Internal Audit abilities can expect to make 23 percent more than their former classmates ($60K). Close to one-seventh of grads report using Microsoft Office as part of their job, making it the most popular skill. Demonstrated ability in Project Management, Microsoft Excel, and Data Analysis rank among leading skills as well.

Benefits and Perks

Only two-fifths of alumni earn paid vacation and just one in three grads get paid sick time. A strong majority of alums have medical plans, and a fair number of former students have dental insurance. A strong majority of respondents participate in a 401(k) retirement savings plan. Additional benefits handed to Truman State University alumni include a casual working environment, life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, and tuition reimbursement.
