We feel our job placement rate for graduates is well above the university average. Our students are well-educated, very specialized, and in high demand. They have been highly successful in gaining employment in their fields and have been able to choose whether to remain in the area or move. Graduates work in the Tri-State area for employers such as: McMillion Research, Terradon Communications Group, Marshall University, Alcon Laboratories, Rahall Transportation Institute, US Department of Treasury-Federal Bureau of Public Debt, Ashland Inc. Employees Credit Union, West Virginia State Police Forensic Laboratory, Marshall University CODIS Laboratory, and Vandalia Research Inc.
Our graduates also live and work in Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, Florida, Massachusetts, Washington D.C., Texas, California, Colorado and even Australia. Employers tell us that our students have the skills to make an immediate impact in the workplace and are often rapidly promoted for that reason.
Our students have been in great demand by employers. As proof, we were able to track twelve of our twelve graduates in CIT from our May 2008 class. Ten of the thirteen graduates were employed in field within 6 weeks of graduation with two others pursuing advanced degrees, one in medicine. Reported starting salaries averaged $44,100.
