Each year, the Career Centre conducts a survey of the graduating class to determine what our graduates do after leaving Laurier and to offer continued assistance to those who may still be seeking employment. We find that some of the most valuable information we can pass on to current students to assist them in their career planning comes from the results of this survey.
The survey takes two to three minutes of time to complete and is voluntary. Survey data will remain strictly confidential unless you choose to release it (see ‘Disclosure’ section on the survey). The data collected from the survey will be kept in the Career Centre’s secure database and data with identifying information such as student number will only be accessed by the staff members who are carrying out the data analysis. All information collected will remain strictly confidential within the University.
At the end of the survey, you will have the option to choose the level of disclosure of your responses within the Laurier community. The Laurier community includes academic departments and faculties as well as administrative departments such as Recruitment & Admissions. Below are examples of how the data is used:
A summary report by degree on graduate outcomes (employed, pursuing further education, looking for employment or other) and average salaries available on the Career Centre website. This information is accessed by current and prospective students as well as employers. Click here for an example.
Reports for academic programs and faculties on the outcomes of their graduates including job titles, organizations and further education programs.
Examples of jobs or further education programs to include in Laurier recruitment materials.
Information the Career Centre utilizes in working with current students and alumni in their career decision making.
Specific examples are only included in the above reports if you indicate ‘with my name’ or ‘without my name’ for the disclosure question. If you choose ‘not at all’, your survey responses will only be used for aggregate data. If you choose ‘with my name’, data associated with your name could be provided to a Laurier academic or administrative department. No information is released outside of Laurier unless you are contacted directly for consent.
