The University of New England was recently named the top college or university in Maine for graduates to get jobs.
Zippia, a website dedicated to helping recent grads with their career choices, released a study about the best colleges or universities in each state for job placement. To compile the ranking, they used the Integrated Postsecondary Education System (IPEDS) to search for the college in each state with the highest listed job placement ratings, looking specifically at employment levels at year 10 after students have graduated. UNE’s placement rate was found to be 92.83 percent.
“As the unemployment rate continues to shrink to figures not seen for nearly half a century, it’s becoming more and more important for college graduates to prepare for a competitive workforce,” stated the article. “This means picking the right major, having great internship and work experiences, but most of all, choosing the right college to attend in the first place.”
