Centre College’s Center for Career & Professional Development (CCPD) will launch a new survey conducted through the Career Leadership Collective, a higher education solutions group. The National Alumni Career Mobility (NACM) Survey is an annual national benchmark report on alumni career pathways and mobility at the five and 10-year mark.
The survey will be open from July 23 to November, seeking career satisfaction and insights from alumni who completed bachelor’s degrees in 2009 and 2014.
“The purpose of the NACM survey is to gather comprehensive information on what alumni are doing five and ten years after graduation and what paths they took to get there,” said Joy Asher, director of the CCPD. “It also provides information on which aspects of their Centre experience were most helpful in setting them up for success.”
Asher said the survey will provide the College with a wealth of information, including data on the career paths of alumni immediately after graduation and anecdotal information on what alumni are doing several years after graduation.
“This is exciting data for Centre to have,” she added. “We do a great job of using one-year data on alumni career paths to help tell our story, but it’s always been just the beginning of the story. This will really allow us to track the long-term success of Centre graduates.
“If you are a member of the Classes of 2009 and 2014, please fill out this survey when it lands in your email on July 23,” Asher concluded. “It will provide Centre with a wealth of data and information that we can use to continue to tell our story in new and powerful ways.”
