Career Destinations Survey

Every year the Career Center surveys graduating seniors about their general post-graduation plans, and attains more specific information if they have secured a job (including job title and salary) or been accepted into a graduate/professional degree program. Each survey year includes the August, December, and May graduating cohorts for that survey year.

This data is designed to provide students, alumni, and employers with critical data about where Cal students go after graduation.  As expected, college major does not restrict the employment or graduate school options that Cal students pursue.  The profiles provide an impressive overview of the diverse interests and achievements of recent graduates from UC Berkeley.
