Graduates of Toledo head into a range of vocations when it comes to work; the automotive manufacturing industry, clinical care, and the education industry are just a few professional areas popular among alumni. The most popular field is the health care industry. Typical pay for those who graduated from Toledo amounts to $57K.


There is a sizable difference between men's post-college salaries and women's: the median for the former is $67K, but the median for the latter is only approximately $55K.


Toledo grads who become Information Technology Managers and Project Engineers garner financial rewards beyond any other job type for this group — these alumni rake in around $80K annually. However, Construction Project Managers don't do badly either at $77K. Mechanical Engineers pick up about $56K in financial rewards, representing the lowest-paid position among alumni.


It is typical for many Toledo grads (close to one-third of former students) to remain settled in Toledo, which may come as a shock given the city's depressed salaries (median pay is $52K). Toledo alumni in search of the largest paycheck, on the other hand, will find it in Detroit where about $86K is the average pay. Nearby Columbus and Perrysburg also rank high on the list of cities for Toledo grads.


The highest paychecks can be found at Magna Automotive, where some Toledo grads go to work for pay averaging $98K. Salaries are anything but high at Oxford University Press, though, where average pay is around $52K.

Degree Major

Financial compensation is highest for Toledo grads with a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) (earnings climb to $120K per year). Those with a bachelor's degree in social work face salaries on the lower end, coming in close to $33K per year.


Knowledge of Leadership seems to be related to bigger paychecks; in fact, skilled alumni bring in salaries that are 44 percent more than their former classmates' salaries ($82K). Proficiency in Project Management is common among Toledo alumni, and when it comes to using it on the job, around one in six former students report doing so. Other top skills include Microsoft Office, Microsoft Excel, and Engineering Design.

Benefits and Perks

A lucky minority (about two-fifths of alumni) are fortunate enough to be compensated for vacation while just one in four survey participants get sick time. For this school, a solid majority of alums are the recipients of health benefits, and most former students pick up dental plans, too. The greater part of survey participants save up for retirement through a 401(k) plan. Additional benefits handed to University of Toledo alumni include life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, a casual working environment, and tuition reimbursement.

Related Schools

Median pay for Ohio University grads is approximately $58K, making their salaries most similar to those of Toledo grads. Western Michigan University, Kent State University at Kent, and Northern Illinois University are also similar to Toledo.
