The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and other UW System schools will join in a national survey of alumni to measure graduates’ satisfaction with their career paths.
The National Alumni Career Mobility Survey, which will be administered from Nov. 14-Dec. 31, will ask select groups of alumni about pathway factors. The survey will go to alumni who graduated in 2010 and 2015, gathering information from people five and 10 years after their graduation.
“I believe the NACM data will illustrate the value of a Blugold degree and allow us to share the career success stories of countless UW-Eau Claire graduates,” says Staci Heidtke, associate director of career services in UW-Eau Claire's Advising, Retention and Career Center.
The survey will collect college student pathway data to gauge successes and challenges alumni have faced. The survey asks graduates to share information about specific experiences that shaped their careers, successes and community involvement, as well as their level of satisfaction with their career path.
The survey will be sent to more than 46,000 undergraduate alumni from all 13 UW System institutions. UW-Eau Claire officials say a total of 3,093 Blugolds who graduated in 2010 and 2015 will be contacted.
This is the first time this national survey has been conducted. Survey results are expected to be available in mid-2021.
UW-Eau Claire is encouraging alumni from 2010 and 2015 to respond to the survey when contacted by email.
