Industry

The health care industry is the sector most highly represented among alumni. Those with a degree from the UMaine make an average of $57K.

Gender

After college, a notable gender gap appears: the average female graduate makes $46K where the average male graduate hauls home around $61K.

Locations

A large number of students head to Boston, Mass. after college. It is no surprise that Bangor, Maine, which hands out the biggest paychecks (the average salary is about $94K), is another of the most popular spots for former UMaine students. On the flipside, the lowest-paying city popular among UMaine grads is Portland, Maine (median compensation is $61K).

Degree Major

Former Black Bears who fare the best in terms of salary hold a Bachelor's Degree and earn a median salary of approximately $61K per year. An Associate's Degree is less advantageous in terms of earnings; alums with this degree are the lowest earners with a median annual pay of $45K.

Skills

Many UMaine grads have knowledge of Customer Service, with just under one in four alumni using this program on the clock. Competency in Customer Relationship Management (CRM) translates into above-average pay for former Black Bears — they earn 18 percent more than their fellow graduates. Project Management, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft Excel are among other dominant skills.

Benefits and Perks

Just one in four survey participants enjoy paid vacation and merely one in three grads get paid sick time. Most alumni save for retirement through a 401(k) plan. Dental insurance applies to a fair number of survey participants, and most grads report health coverage. University of Maine grads also enjoy benefits like a company-subsidized cell phone, a casual working environment, life insurance, and company car / automobile.

Related Schools

Median pay for University of Vermont grads is $55K, making their salaries most similar to those of UMaine grads. The University of New Hampshire-Main Campus, the University of Rhode Island, and SUNY at Binghamton are also similar to UMaine.
