Results: Data & Success
Each year, Rider Career Development and Success conducts a post-graduation first destination survey to learn more about the career choices and outcomes of Rider University graduates. Find out what they're doing now.
CAREER OUTCOMES – Class of 2017
It's true: Within six months of graduation, 98% of Rider 2017 graduates are either employed full or part-time, pursuing graduate study, serving in the military or involved in a volunteer position. And that's just the beginning.
We put our graduates' insights to work to constantly improve and evolve our career development process to meet the demands of an ever-changing marketplace. We contacted 956 undergraduates and 369 graduate students to learn about their destinations 6 months after graduating from Rider. Nearly 79% of all undergraduates and 72% of all graduate students from the Class of 2017 responded.
