Preparation for Employment METHODOLOGY SURVEY OF JUNE 1999 BACCALAUREATE DEGREE RECIPIENTS: EDUCATIONAL & OCCUPATIONAL OUTCOMES By Gillian Butler Production & Design, Brenda Graf Student Research Assistants, Jula Pereira & My Huang One year after graduating with a baccalaureate degree from UC Davis, 38% of the June 1999 graduating class were studying for or had just completed a postgraduate degree or credential and 64% were employed full-time. Compared to the June 1996 graduating class, 1999 s graduates are somewhat more likely to be in the workplace than continuing their education. This is consistent with historical trends: participation in postgraduate education is countercyclical. When the economy is good, graduates enter the workforce: in leaner times, they continue their education. 70% 70% 60% 60% 50% 50% 40% 40% 30% 30% 20% 20% 10% 10% 0% 0% Relationship Relationship Between Between Full Full Time Time Employment Employment and and Post Post Graduate Graduate Study Study % Po st Grad % Em ployed (full-time) % Post Grad % Employed (full-time)

2 POSTGRADUATE STUDIES Thirty-eight percent of respondents from the June 1999 graduating class are studying for or have recently completed a postgraduate degree or credential; an additional 46% are planning to pursue graduate study within five years. DEGREE PROGRAMS As shown on Table 1, respondents are equally likely to enroll in doctoral or master s degree programs. Thirty-nine percent of those continuing their education are at the doctoral level, 39% are at the master s level, 20% are attaining a teaching credential, and another 7% are acquiring some other type of credential or certification. Doctoral students are primarily studying human and animal health (21%), academic subjects (9%) and law (9%). Master s students are primarily in academic degree programs.

The M.A. or M.S. degrees most frequently sought by June 1999 graduates are in education (19%), engineering (18%), social sciences (11%), biological sciences (10%), human welfare and development (10%), and mathematics and computer sciences (10%). [2]

3 POSTGRADUATE STUDIES BY GENDER Upon graduation, women are more likely to continue their education than are men (41% vs. 33%). As found in previous studies, choice of degree programs differsby gender. At the doctoral level, proportionately fewer female graduates pursue MDs (5% vs. 14%), health doctorates (8% vs. 12%), or doctorates in academic subjects (8% vs. 11%); at the master s level, fewer women pursue degrees in academic subjects (24% vs. 37%). Conversely, proportionately more women seek master s degrees in education (8% vs. 3%) and credentials in teaching (26% vs. 5%). In addition, more women pursue doctorates in veterinary medicine (4% vs. 2%).

Where They Go for Postgraduate Instruction Out-of-state 20% CA CC 2% CA Private 21% Other 1% Joint UC/CSU 1% UC 31% CSU 24% More than half of the MD students (53%) attend schools in California; most select a UC program (44%). Ph.D. students are also more likely to stay in the state: 46% attend UC schools and 15% choose private California schools. Most veterinary students attend UC Davis (93%). While about half (48%) of those pursuing a master's in education are attending a CSU school, those pursuing academic masters in other fields are equally likely to be attending a UC (28%) or a CSU (30%) campus. Students earning a teaching credential most often select a CSU campus (55%). [3]

4 CHOICE OF POSTGRADUATE INSTITUTION BY DEGREE PROGRAM Overall, 89% of graduates enroll in their first or second choice postgraduate institution. All fifteen students currently studying veterinary medicine are attending their first or second choice school. A very high proportion of students obtaining teaching credentials (98%) or master s degrees (92%) report the same. Conversely, fewer MD students enroll in their first or second choice postgraduate institution (63%).

MD JD PREPARATION FOR POSTGRADUATE EDUCATION BY DEGREE PROGRAM As with past classes, June 1999 graduates rate the preparation they received at UC Davis for postgraduate study very highly. Using a scale ranging from 5 (very well prepared) to 1 (poorly prepared), four fifths (81%) of graduates report being more than adequately or very well prepared for their studies; the mean rating is Among all respondents continuing their education, those pursuing medicine and other health fields, credentials in education or other fields, and academic master s degrees report the most positive ratings.

5 POSTGRADUATE EDUCATION BY UNDERGRADUATE DIVISION/COLLEGE Graduates who major in mathematical and physical sciences are most likely to continue their education directly after graduation (70%). More than half of graduates (52%) who majored in biological sciences enroll in a postgraduate institution. Graduates who majored in environmental sciences, engineering, and human sciences are least likely to have enrolled in postgraduate studies within a year of receiving their baccalaureate degree.

6 PREPARATION FOR POSTGRADUATE STUDY BY UNDERGRADUATE DIVISION/COLLEGE Mean ratings for graduate school preparation by undergraduate division are uniformly high. On a scale ranging from 5 (very well prepared) to 1 (poorly prepared), mean ratings are particularly high for graduates in Human Sciences (4.50), Social Sciences (4.30), and Biological Sciences (4.29) DIVISION TABLE 3: Preparation for Postgraduate Study by Undergraduate Division Very Well/ More than Less than / Poorly Mean Rating TOTAL 80% 17% 3% 4.29 Human Sciences 86% 14% 0% 4.50 Biological Sciences 84% 14% 4% 4.29 Humanities, Arts, & Cultural Studies 82% 15% 3% 4.28 Social Sciences 79% 20% 2% 4.30 Engineering 79% 21% 0% 4.26 Environmental Sciences 79% 21% 0% 4.21 Agricultural Sciences 74% 17% 9% 4.09 Mathematical & Physical Science 71% 24% 5% 4.05 [6]

7 OCCUPATIONAL OUTCOMES EMPLOYMENT STATUS One year after graduation, 64% of alumni are employed full-time, 12% work parttime by choice and 3% work part-time but would prefer full-time employment. Seventeen percent are unemployed and not seeking work; only 4% are unemployed and seeking work.

8 CAREERS Graduates were asked to select a career category that best described their current job. (They chose from 19 categories developed, in part, by UC career center directors.) As Table 5 indicates, more than a quarter (29%) of graduates began working in finance, banking, marketing, and other business fields, even though UC Davis does not offer a traditional business major. Two of the largest career categories for Davis graduates are biological science (19%) and engineering (10%). CAREERS BY GENDER TABLE 4: Full-time Occupation of Graduates One Year after Graduation OCCUPATION Total (n=711) Men (n=287) Women (n=424) Biological Sciences/Health Scientist 19% 17% 21% Educator Engineer Sales/Marketing Professional General Business Administrator Computer/Math/Physical Scientist Finance/Accountant/Banker Social Scientist/Service Professional Secretary/Clerical Worker Artist/Designer/Writer Legal Services/Law Enforcement/Military Farm/Forest/Other Agriculture Manager Other Men predominate in the engineering fields; 20% of male graduates begin their careers as engineers, as compared with only 4% women graduates. In addition, 17% of male graduates work in the computer, math or physical science fields, as opposed to 6% of women. A larger proportion of female graduates work in education (12% vs. 4%); 7% categorize their employment as clerical. SALARIES Annual salaries of June 1999 graduates employed full-time average $38,700 an increase of 27% from the average salary reported by graduates three years ago. Adjusted for inflation, the mean salary of June 1999 graduates a year later is 19% greater than the mean salary of the 1996 graduating cohort. The median salary for full-time employed 1999 graduates one year later is $34,500, the corresponding figure for 1996 graduates was $27,000. SALARIES BY GENDER AND OCCUPATION As found in previous studies, women s salaries are about 80% of those reported by men ($35,100 vs. $44,100). Part of this difference stems from the low proportions of women in engineering, mathematics and computer sciences (the highest paying fields for recent graduates) and their high proportions in education and clerical positions (relatively lower paying fields). However, in most of the occupational fields men report higher salaries than women do: the exceptions are clerical positions; artistic, design or writing fields; and social science or service fields.

9 EMPLOYMENT IN CHOSEN FIELD Other factors besides job type and salary define employment satisfaction for recent graduates. One consideration is whether graduates are able to secure employment in their chosen field. Seventy-nine percent of Davis graduates employed full-time are successful in this regard. (This figure excludes 13% of respondents who have not chosen a career field.) Although the proportion varies, this finding is true of a large majority of graduates from all undergraduate divisions (see Table 6). TABLE 6: Graduates Employed Full-time in Field of Choice DIVISION Percent Employed in Field of Choice TOTAL (n=605) 79% Engineering (n=94) 93 Mathematical & Physical Sciences (n=11) 92 Agricultural Sciences (n=36) 84 Human Health & Development (n=88) 83 Environment (n=35) 76 Biological Sciences (n=71) 72 Humanities, Arts, & Cultural Studies (n=28) 70 Social Sciences (n=110) 70 A related dimension of employment opportunities for graduates is the correspondence between occupation and undergraduate field of study. Not all graduates seek jobs in occupations closely related to their undergraduate majors. The majority of working graduates (61%) describe their jobs and majors as highly or moderately related. Graduates from engineering, agricultural sciences, and human health and development are most likely to be working in positions related to their undergraduate major. Employment Highly/Moderately Related to Major by Undergraduate Division % of full-time employed graduates 82% 73% 70% 66% 62% 59% 44% ENGIN HUMANSCI AGSCI ENV SCI BIOSCI MPS SOCSCI Nearly three-quarters of responding graduates (73%) say they are very satisfied or satisfied with their jobs. Job Satisfaction (Full-time Employed) Neutral 18% % of full-time employed graduates Dissatisfied 7% Very Dissatisfied 1% Very Satisfied 34% Satisfied 39% [9]

10 RATING OF PREPARATION FOR EMPLOYMENT Over two-thirds of working alumni (67%) report that their undergraduate studies prepared them very well or more than adequately for their current employment (Table 7). On a scale of 5 (very well prepared) to 1 (poorly prepared), graduates give their career preparation a mean rating of Alumni who graduated in the Agricultural Sciences and the Biological Sciences, give their preparation for the workplace especially high ratings.

As shown on Table 8, a majority of June 1999 graduates report that interpersonal skills, and skills in problem-solving, computing, speaking and writing are very important to their current activities. Graduates working full-time, however, are more likely than those who are enrolled in postgraduate work to report that computer skills are very important to their current activities (62% vs. 48%). Graduates who continue their schooling are more likely to report that research skills are very important (56% vs. 41%); the same holds true for writing skills (68% vs. 51%) and speaking skills (79% vs. 64%). Respondents give the highest ratings for their undergraduate preparation in problem-solving, writing and research. UC Davis receives by far the lowest ratings from all graduates in the areas of speaking and computer skills. About half of all graduates rate their undergraduate preparation in these areas as fair or poor. [10]

11 Watch for upcoming reports from the Survey of June 1999 Baccaluareate Degree Recipents with results on students use of technology, involvement in research activities and leadership activities, and satisfaction with aspects of their undergraduate experience. [11]

12 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Background Information Every three years Student Affairs Research & Information (SARI) conducts a survey of the previous year s June baccalaureate recipients one year after graduation. The purpose of these surveys is: To examine the extent to which new alumni pursue postgraduate education; To examine alumni occupational outcomes, including career choice and salary; To assess undergraduate preparation for graduate study and the work force; and To assess alumni satisfaction with key aspects of their undergraduate experience. The results of this regularly occurring survey are routinely used in departmental evaluations and serve to guide changes in undergraduate academic and student affairs programming. Findings of the Survey of June 1999 Baccalaureate Degree Recipients As has been the case in the past, June 1999 graduates rate the preparation they received at UC Davis very highly. Over two-third of those employed full-time report that their undergraduate studies prepared them very well or more than adequately for their current employment. Mean ratings for graduate school preparation are even higher: four-fifths of those engaged in postgraduate education report that their undergraduate education prepared them very well or more than adequately for continuing their education. With the economy booming, June 1999 baccalaureate recipients have entered the work force in record numbers. Nearly two-thirds of the graduating class is working full-time. A somewhat lower proportion than in previous years (38%) continued their education directly upon graduation. Whether continuing their education or entering the workplace, about a fifth of the June 1999 graduating class are engaged in the fields of biological and health sciences. Despite the fact that UC Davis does not offer a traditional business major, more than a quarter this graduating class began working in finance, banking, marketing, and other business fields. Annual salaries of June 1999 graduates employed full-time average $38,700, an increase of 27% from the average salary reported by June 1996 graduates. Adjusted for inflation, the mean salary of June 1999 graduates a year later is 19% greater than the mean salary of the 1996 graduating cohort. As found in previous studies, women s salaries are about 80% of those reported by men. Part of this difference is attributable to a larger proportion of women working in traditionally undervalued fields (education, clerical). However, even within occupational fields, men report higher salaries than women do. Back to Table of Contents [12]

13 METHODOLOGY A mail survey of all June 1999 baccalaureate recipients was undertaken in Summer A preliminary letter from the Chancellor notified these recent alumni that a questionnaire would be forthcoming, and sought current addresses for members of this very mobile population. A six-page questionnaire was mailed to the entire population on August 29, A follow-up postcard was mailed on September 8. Two additional mailings of the survey instrument were sent; the first on September 20 and the second on October 24. Responses were accepted through December 2000, at which time 1106 graduates (46%) out of 2388 graduates had responded (an additional 4% of graduates could not be contacted because of incorrect or unknown addresses.) The findings presented herein provide valuable insight into the outcomes and opinions of these alumni. The consistency of results with those of previous surveys of corresponding populations serves to support the veracity of the current effort. Nonetheless, caution should be used in extrapolating these results to the entire graduating class. As experienced with previous alumni studies, women and students with slightly higher undergraduate grade-point averages are overrepresented among survey respondents (see the accompanying table for details). Respondents are otherwise similar to all June 1999 graduates in ethnicity, college or division, and high school/advanced standing admit status.
