Mhci+D Students And Career Outcomes 2017

these are the first support cohorts at where they originated from when they came to the program you can see we’ve got a lot of people but also from several other places across the u.s. we’ve got a strong contingent of students coming from Asia especially in China Taiwan and India and then we have smatterings of students who have come from a number of other locations into the each now a couple from Africa Middle East Europe Canada Mexico. students have come from all over that diversity can also kind of be a metaphor as for the backgrounds that you’re all bringing in and that’s one of the strengths of this kind of a program is you’ve probably heard people talking about things here just that this road you said oh I want to talk to that person and learn this about this they won’t bring. many different skills together that as you work together you’re going to learn a lot not just from the classes but also from your girl board and in the same way because everybody comes from different work experience different undergrad experience you all come together in this you pick up this formal I was still training but everybody has their own individual career faculty or going out. that’s my big caveat before say now let’s generalize about your career paths we’ve had three corns graduate and gone into the world we’ll talk we’ll break down in just a few simple slides where we where we’re seeing our love go to it what patterns were learning about obviously where you can go big tech companies our big hire earnest press and we’ll look at that a little more there’s also design studios startups for some people as well consultancies and various different assets. there’s a variety of different companies in in terms of what you can do when you start looking at titles and job titles for people who come out of this program I’d say that you don’t necessarily want to focus too much on the job itself these are all pretty familiar days of you may be thinking about where you’re gonna go you know duex designer user researcher if you’re an Amazon your design technologist basically there’s some broad titles that mean different things at different companies and even within companies the same title might be in a different things. the job titles would be cluster around those listed here but you really could be doing different things depending on size of company and what your specific world is in their first question that often comes up is how how rapidly do people get employee out of this program you go through this program it’s very intense. what what kind of employment success do is see in terms a first job out of the out of the gate looking at the admission we’ve got here the first three months after graduation we see half of them have programs have received their jobs in those first three months after becquer’s that’s not that it’s not to say that everybody’s finishing the program with the job in hand every year there’s a group of our graduating students who are able to secure a job do their interviewing get the offer and accept or they walk across the stage at graduation that’s not typically the bulk of the class this is an intense program you’re really here focus on the program and the learning that you’re going to get in this and I’d say a normal pattern for a student in this program is to start really thinking more and more completely about their career Spring Quarter especially in summer and then really ready to hit the ground running as you finish off your capstone graduate a lot of students will take a little time right after they finish the program to put their portfolio in the final polishing and then really get into the interview I don’t work with you earlier on different career development but the norm is to really high here summer and as you graduate given that reality that half of the class is getting employed by December is pretty impressive anything a sign of the demand for people with this degree if you add into that the next three months if you look at six months after graduation we’ve got money a little over 80 percent of the alums find themselves employed within six months of graduation that’s a pretty strong rate and again a good sign of what what you can bring to the market and what you could offer there this is a breakdown I doubt this will be very surprising this is where our alum live. if you look at our alumni out there right now we’ve got 61% who are here in Seattle another 25% 24% in the Bay Area if you were throwing Portland Los Angeles I think that Pasadena as well the West Coast makes up more than 90% of our alumni right now that that really is the core of where our students have ended up it’s where our relationships are in a lot of cases and get not surprising there it’s I don’t really are the hubs of this kind of work can you beloved places absolutely we have students now we abused a few students out in New York working in places like New York Times and SoundCloud there’s a student along in London one in Netherlands somebody will be in Hawaii Shanghai in Tokyo. students have problems have gone other places but if you’re looking at our core strengths west coast is really where we are that’s that’s the market we know best as well as far as companies three cohorts have gone through and gone up in the world you think in terms of about 30 per per cohort we got about 100 alumni out there of their spread amongst just about 60 different companies. we have a pretty wide spread for fewer than 100 Aloha there of there are a couple of big big names that are Ennis would expect Microsoft is our biggest employer. far we 13 of the alum of working there right now amazon has finally run Google for and then a few other companies have a couple people at them we’re really spread out though amongst a bunch of companies I like to think of those alums kind of our tentacles our Beach that are going to be advocating I’m here we have and really opening more doors most of all the companies the big name companies and a lot of the smaller companies in this area and the bear but there’s there’s a lot of them for building depth in more of these places and that really are spread out amongst several different companies and not just feeding into the two big Microsoft Amazon someone’s here we look at industry again the biggest pie slice out of this chart is no doubt not surprising of a half bar a lot more working and what we feed or if you might call the technology field that’s pretty broad and that’s not surprising in addition to the technology field though we’re seeing more and more the exciting starting to find times also in other industries as other industries become more tech savvy and understand the value of pulling in a degree like this. 7 percent of our students are lumber in the media right now that’s places like NBC Universal New York Times and like 7 percent are in healthcare which this seems to be a growing area as well one of our alums of the alum panel taro is working in prepared across she design firms education legal CPG does consumer packaged goods those areas are all growing as well and have small number of love in them I think you’ll see more and more feeding of HC ID graduates going in these other areas beyond just the technologies lastly to talk about a one-day start to put back of your mind and think through as you plan what kind of a career what direction you might want to go in an important element of that discussion is what your finish like they do someone for big companies small companies don’t know why try them both the wealth of our students or the plurality where students are in large companies 10,000 plus employees but if you look as we go along there’s almost as many students working at companies that have 200 or fewer employees. we really do span from startups on up into the large companies and probably you’ll get experience in both the small employee small number employees and large companies in the course of your career your career is likely to walk through several different employers as you move along my advice these are kind of big picture grass by the death accomplished was the one who mentioned that you’ve been looking at alumni and sort of cyberstalking alumni through LinkedIn in the light take some time to poke through from our web pages you can go to the Alumni section and most of those alumni names will link you to a LinkedIn profile I’ll walk through some of those career paths take a look at see where did someone start what do they come into this program with after they came out of here where did they move next did they jump in immediately to Microsoft did they do some contract work first you can get a few more concrete examples if you can spend a few time a little time looking at our homes but these are some of the big breakdancers
