Where are Utah college graduates employed?

The relationship between a college degree or certificate and a career is very complex.  The idea that a specific area of study will qualify a person for employment in only one industry is simply untrue. The interactive chart below illustrates the industries in which USHE graduates are employed.  This data is compiled through USHE’s partnership with the Utah Data Alliance.


Note: Industry definitions are from the US Bureau of Labor and Statistics and do not necessarily include all sectors of employment in Utah. The data is based on employment one-year post graduation. Counts of less than 10 individuals within a specific industry are not displayed. There are a significant number of graduates of Utah public institutions for whom their employment status is unknown – they are unemployed, employed out of state, or a connection to the industry in which they are employed is unknown.
