Class of 2015

Introduction

May 2016

Each year, the Career & Life Outcomes Center contacts recent graduates in an effort to track their progress during their first year after Hamilton. Based on information from 94% of the Class of 2015, we know that 79% are employed in a job or internship, 9% are enrolled in graduate or professional school program, and 3% are participating in a post-graduate fellowship.

The four top career areas of employment are education, business management, finance and science & technology. Also attractive to our recent grads were opportunities in consulting, the nonprofit sector and marketing & sales. Most of the Class is living in New York City, Boston or Washington and the vast majority is in the North East and Mid-Atlantic regions of the country.

This report is compiled each year by the Career Center staff under the direction of David Bell, and would not be possible without the willingness of our alumni to report back to us. Thank you to the members of the Class of 2015 who participated. If you have questions about this report, feel free to contact us.

Finally, the report provides outcome information by academic concentration. Please enjoy reading about the many accomplishments of the Class of 2015.
