K-State grads get a head start on career success

K-State grads aren’t just accomplished and hard-working. They really know how to work it, according to the K-State Career Center.

Here’s the scoop:

• At graduation, 96% of K-Staters are either employed or furthering their education.
• Median starting salaries for new bachelor’s degree grads jumped more than 6% from the previous year.
• Top employers of new grads include Burns & McDonnell, Garmin, Koch Industries, Manhattan-Ogden USD 383, Shamrock Trading Corporation, Textron and the U.S. Army.

The internship advantage

On top of connecting employers with outstanding Wildcats, the Career Center helps students find and land internships.

There’s no better way to establish a track record that makes future employers take notice, but it’s also very personal. Being able to apply their classroom learning to real-world work helps students know if they’re on the right path. And it’s a huge confidence booster when students realize, “Hey, I’m actually good at this, and this is something I can see myself doing as a career”.

Dress for success

To help students make a great first impression at their job interviews, the Career Closet provides professional attire free of charge. Students even get tips on how to dress to impress — wear neutral colors, match belt and shoes and avoid distractive jewelry or perfume.

How can you help K-Staters make that wow impression? There are many ways to help stock the Career Closet.
