The Career Services Unit tracks career outcomes to tell the story of what happens with our students after they complete their program. This information can be used in myriad ways. In our first phase of data collection to be concluded by December 2021, HACC is focusing on gathering information about graduates’ successful transition to a first destination, a build-out of top employers and job titles secured by our graduates, the skills that employers are seeking to fulfill from HACC candidates, and what discrepancies may exist for minority and underrepresented students.
That’s not the only story we’re here to tell! Career preparedness is an integral part of the mission statement of the Career Services Unit. Tracking career outcomes helps tell the story of how our team prepares our students for their future careers.
In the Spring '21 semester, we launched a new first-destination data collection system to help track what happens with HACC graduates after completing.
88% of Spring '21 graduates completed the Exit Form.
(65% is the national average.)
At the time of graduation, 79% of Spring '21 graduates were considered 'placed' in their field (ongoing ed and/or employed)
