What is First Destination?
The First Destination Survey and Report provides data on where Gonzaga graduates go after college- their "first destination". Using standards outlined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), Career & Professional Development gathers this information annually, providing the aggregate results in the spring in a report that shows:
- Success Rate
- Employment Rate
- Continuing Education Rate
- Volunteer Service Rate
- Military Service Rate
- Still-Seeking Employment or Continuing Education Rate
It also provides information on average salary ranges, the top employers/organizations, graduate programs, and geographic locations for recent graduates. Definitions of all above terms and an executive summary is located at the beginning of each First Destination Survey Report. More recent reports also include top internship organizations and longitudinal overviews.
