Placement rates for Dickinson State University students from 2005 until 2009 have remained steady, coming in at just under 100 percent, according to the DSU 2009 Annual Report.
DSU’s 99 percent placement rate includes graduates who are employed or who have chosen to continue their education, said Constance Walter, DSU University Relations director.
“DSU has a reputation for turning out well-prepared graduates who, in addition to having an excellent education, have a strong work ethic that makes them desirable to employers across the region and around the country,” Dr. Rich Brauhn, vice president for Academic Affairs, said in an e-mail.
Brauhn added the university offers career counseling for students and assistance finding “appropriate” internships, allowing them to gain knowledge in their fields of study.
DSU senior Christal Lara, a Spanish and exercise science double major, said she plans to visit the Office of Career Services at the university, as she will soon be graduating.
“I’ve heard a lot of students say it’s helpful (the career service center),” Lara said.
Lara said she has some concerns finding a job, and is seeking a job in interpreting.
About 55 percent of DSU graduates in the 2008-2009 academic year graduating with a two-year degree planned to continue at DSU for a four-year degree, according to the report.
