Overall, the majority of the graduates had full-time jobs. In addition, while a significant proportion of the freelance consultants and government employees earned at least $75,000, only roughly half of the private sector employees did.
Just over half of the graduates went on to work full-time, compared with only 15 percent working part-time and 12 percent unemployed.

Moving on to the salaries, 80 percent of the freelance consultants earned at least $75,000, half of whom were in the highest salary range of more than $100,000.
