First Destination Survey

In an effort to help the university understand the job market and to be able to continue to help alumni and current students who are seeking employment opportunities, please take our brief First Destination Survey.

Maintaining accurate information about the careers and advanced studies programs that our graduates pursue is a critical activity for all of us at Illinois Tech. Alumni career data helps Illinois Tech raise its profile in rankings—and allows us to better serve newly graduated students with additional resources to launch their careers. When you update your contact information, we are able to invite our alumni to attend networking and professional events, and to connect with current students and fellow alumni. 

If you are a recent graduate and have not yet done so, please complete the First Destination Survey in Handshake!
