Career Fairs Open Opportunities for Students

October 3, 2019

Career FairCedarville University is committed to equipping your student with challenging academics integrated with a biblical worldview. But we don’t stop there. Our Career Services department works hard to create opportunities for students to move into career positions immediately after graduation.

Last month, Career Services held its first career fair of the year, with more than 125 companies attending, including well-known organizations like Honda, Boeing, Procter & Gamble, and General Electric. Students gained valuable experience communicating with potential employers while expanding their network of contacts.

Each year, students land internships and permanent career positions as a result of these career fairs. Career Services has several more career fairs planned for this year, giving students additional opportunities to search for jobs and hone their interviewing skills.

These career fairs are just one of the reasons that 98.3% of Cedarville graduates are employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation.

Parents Measure ROI for Their Students' Cedarville Education

March 22, 2019

Diploma on pile of moneyAs high school seniors and their parents sit down to finalize a college decision before the May 1 deadline, one topic is nearly always part of the discussion: cost.

While many universities — including Cedarville — are taking intentional steps to make a college education more affordable, parents are increasingly looking at job placement rates in order to weigh an institution’s benefits against its costs in an effort to decide whether or not a considerable investment is worthwhile.

Cedarville's placement rates continue to be impressive. In a six-month postgraduation final destination survey, 98.4% of Cedarville's class of 2018 reported being employed or in graduate school during that time period. This is not a one-year anomaly: Cedarville's five-year average is 97.3%.

These placement results are well above the national averages reported by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, which has reported an average of 88% over the last five years. But don't just take our word for it. Read the Q-and-A in today's post, originally published in an issue of Cedarville Magazine, and see what parents are saying about their children's experience at Cedarville.

P.S. If your student has been accepted to Cedarville for fall 2019, be sure to pay your reservation deposit soon to ensure his or her place in the incoming class!

Career Services recently hosted a spring career fair on campus with more than 100 businesses and organizations attending to recruit students. Companies return each year and actively seek out our graduates because of their career preparation, high-level integrity, and incredible work ethic.
