MU Grads Have Support and Success

A recent Show Me Mizzou story features three Mizzou graduates pursuing their career goals. Kendall Feist, Savannah Gonzales and Luke Pfitzinger are part of the graduating Class of 2023 who have found success: the recent career outcomes survey shows that more than 95% of recent MU graduates found employment, continued their education, joined the military or started volunteer service within six months of spring graduation.

The latest career outcomes survey, conducted in partnership with the National Association of Colleges and Employers, shows that 2,504 employers have hired class of 2023 graduates, ranging from Fortune 100 firms to small business enterprises. Additionally, class of 2023 graduates were accepted into 283 institutions worldwide and reside in 47 states, the District of Columbia and 21 countries worldwide. 

“At MU, we aim to support students as they make the transition from college to the workforce, post-grad studies or other pursuits so they can apply what they have learned as they continue to explore their interests,” said Jim Spain, vice provost for undergraduate studies at MU. “Our alumni are changing the world every day, and out of all the benefits of attending college at MU, the one pride point we hear from our students more than any other at graduation is that they feel prepared and equipped for life after college.”

While many graduates find opportunities before or soon after graduation, we know that others still need assistance. Career services provides career resources and advising to recent graduates up to one year out from graduation. So if you are a May graduate and feeling a bit overwhelmed or stuck, please reach out!
