Plan ToSucceed


The mission of the McKendree University Career Services Office is to:

• Give our students the opportunity to become actively involved in developing their career by providing a variety of training activities, programs, and services that support the goals of our students and McKendree University.

• Encourage students to take initiative and be active in developing their career, using Career Services to help guide them towards success in a career and our society as a whole.

• Help students understand that developing a career path is truly a life-long process.


Graduates from McKendree University work in a variety of settings after graduation, including large corporations, small businesses, schools, hospitals, government agencies, and non-profit organizations, among others. The Career Outcomes Rate for the Class of 2019 is 98% for undergraduates and 100% for graduates, as determined through a survey that is distributed to all students before and after graduation. The survey results also found that 30% of undergraduate and 4.5% of graduate students immediately continued their education by going on to graduate and professional schools in law, business, medicine, psychology, sociology, and communication, among others. All results are based on those who replied to the survey. Our knowledge rate for 2019 undergraduates is 76% and for graduates is 82%.
