First Destination Survey

What is it?

First Destination Survey is a nation-wide survey compiled by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) that captures information about how new graduates fare in their careers six months after graduation.

How can you use it?

This survey provides information about all students at St. Kate’s and can provide you with information specifically about how students in your department fare post graduation.

How can you help?

You will receive an email from Career Development about the survey later in the semester.
  • Talk about this survey with your students so they know what it is when Career Development reaches out
  • Encourage seniors to complete the survey and to share their contact information with Career Development before they graduate
