Career Outcomes Matter to Everyone

The number one reason someone pursues higher education is to get a good job. Studies show that finding a good job at graduation has a direct impact on earnings for alumni 10 years after graduation, and has direct impact on their affinity for their alma mater.

So your Enrollment colleagues care about career outcomes and your Alumni/Advancement colleagues care about career outcomes. Sounds like perfect partners!
