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 2023 is 95% for undergraduates and 98% for graduates, as determined through a survey that is distributed to all students before and after graduation. The survey results also found that 37% of undergraduate and 4% 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.  Our knowledge rate (Career Outcomes information known) for 2023 undergraduates is 84% and for graduates is 89%.
