who visit the Career Center that Attended Job Fair
While there are sources of finding out when Job Fairs are on campus, nothing can top a visit to the Career Center and take
a look at a calendar or upcoming events. Most information is sent via e-mail but if students do not check their e-mail or
just delete messages they are not interested in they miss out on these valuable opportunities.
Students who attended a Job Fair (By Academic Year)
Much like our analysis for the graph about students who have attended a job fair, we feel that regardless of academic year
that all students should be attending job fairs. This graph just further details who indeed is attending these job fairs.
Students who plan to attend graduate school (by major)
The graph shows that just slightly over half of the students who took the survey are planning on attending graduate school.
While there were more marketing majors than any other major in our study, the amount of students who are planning on attending
graduate school is fairly equal across majors. It goes to show that regardless of major, students are willing to further their
education in order to obtain a better job.
Average GPA by Employment Status
One of the more interesting things that we found out is that as you can see on the graph, students that held either a part-time
or full-time job had higher GPA’s than those students who were unemployed. This is important to note because maintaining
a job while in school forces students to budget their time appropriately in order to get their work done. We feel that having
too much free time leads to becoming complacent, lazy, and missing deadlines for work to be done. Having a job while in college
prepares students for the real world pressures and deadlines that a career will place on them.
Students who have resume (By Academic Year)
This graph makes a breakdown of students who have resumes by academic year. There is an obvious strength in the amount of
resumes by seniors but where our concern lies is with the freshman and sophomores. It is never to early to have a resume and
challenge yourself to make your resume more appealing by taking advantage of everything Rutgers Camden or any college for
that matter has to offer.
Career Center Attendance (with adequate interviewing skills)
We previously stated that we felt students opinions on their interviewing skills were just that, opinions. For the sixty-seven
percent of students who have visited the Career Center and feel they have adequate interviewing skills are given more credibility
to their response because they have been given the information and perhaps taken advantage of the classes and seminars that
prepare students to be successful with the interviewing process.
