Industry

Graduates of SJU go into the health care industry, clinical care, and the education industry, not to mention a variety of other lines of work. The most popular career sector among alumni is the financial services industry. Those with a degree from SJU make an average of approximately $68K.

Gender

After graduation, women go on to earn an average of $64K per year compared to men, who earn about $77K.

Jobs

Former SJU students with an interest in making money consider becoming Pharmacists, the highest-paying gig (average earnings amount to $111K) among this alumni group. Other well-paid jobs include Physician Assistants ($100K) and Human Resources Managers ($76K). Collecting the smallest paychecks are Administrative Assistants — they bring in around $35K.

Locations

A large number of students head to Los Angeles, Calif. after college. It is no surprise that New York, N.Y., which hands out the biggest paychecks (the average salary is $73K), is another of the most popular spots for former SJU students. Though Houston, Texas takes the cake for lowest pay among SJU grads (the median salary is $51K there), it remains a common destination for former students. Graduates also relocate to Philadelphia, Pa. and Washington, DC.

Degree Major

Financial compensation is highest for SJU grads with a Juris Doctor (JD), Master of Jurisprudence, or Master of Law (LLM) (average earnings climb to approximately $120K per year). A Bachelor of Science in Legal Studies is less advantageous in terms of earnings; alums with this degree are the lowest earners with a median annual pay of $48K.

Skills

For former Red Storms, proficiency in Project Management warrants a paycheck that is 15 percent more than other alumni salaries. Microsoft Excel is a common skill among SJU alumni — nearly one in seven grads mention using it at work. Proficiency in Microsoft Office, Project Management, and Customer Service command top-of-the-line rewards as well.

Benefits and Perks

When it comes to benefits, there is room for improvement — only one-third of alumni are paid for vacation and just one-fifth of alumni for sick time. A fair number of respondents allocate some part of their earnings to a company-sponsored 401(k) savings plan. Benefits are rather generous for graduates of this school; a strong majority of alums are rewarded with health insurance and a strong majority of survey participants report dental coverage, too. Additional benefits handed to St John's University alumni include a casual working environment, life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, and tuition reimbursement.

Related Schools

Hofstra University grads bring in salaries of around around $66K, making them the most similar to SJU alumni in terms of earnings. Other schools similar to SJU include Adelphi University, New School, and Pace University-New York.
