Maryland graduates can be found in almost every type of job and industry.  There are over 200,000 profiles of Maryland graduates on LinkedIn that demonstrate an impressive diversity of professional career paths.  While a significant number remain in the Maryland/DC/Virginia region, Maryland grads reside in every major metropolitan city in the U.S. and around the globe.

The University Career Center tracks the initial destinations of UMD grads through the Graduation Survey which is administered to bachelor’s degree recipients for each graduation cohort.  The survey captures career-related outcomes, as well as data on participation in co-curricular activities during graduates’ tenure at the University of Maryland.  The 2017 Graduation Survey Report covers August 2016, December 2016 and May 2017 graduates.

Post-graduate outcomes were identified for 83% of the students most recently surveyed.  Information was collected through the survey instrument and from other sources, including social media profiles, employers, individual faculty members, academic departments, and the National Student Clearinghouse.
