Study Names Georgetown College Best College in Kentucky at Job Placement
Submitted on June 20, 2019
Each year, the United States Department of Education updates their College Scorecard Data. As always, one of the most interesting findings in the study is which colleges’ students fare the best in the job market.
Studying students’ job placements ten years after graduation, the study this year found Georgetown College to be the best for job placement in the state of Kentucky for the second year in a row.
Along with the education students receive at Georgetown College, both inside and outside the classroom, the Graves Center for Calling and Career is a big reason for this success. The Graves Center assists students and alumni in planning for and preparing for their careers.
Speaking on the success of Georgetown students after graduation, Director of the Graves Center for Calling and Career, Holly James, said, “This is a campus-wide effort. We’re just the hub.”
She emphasized the foundational education that students receive at Georgetown College. “Students here develop a solid foundation. They develop those soft skills and professional competencies that employers look for, along with a well-rounded education. We also challenge students to focus on their individual skill-set, to really hone in on what they have to offer a potential employer.”
James also noted the strong alumni base at Georgetown College. She said, “Alumni just feel such a strong connection to this place, and that just helps future generations of students as they graduate and move into their careers.”
