Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,

I’m writing to let you know that the Illini Success team has just released this year’s edition of the Illini Success report, an annual review of the first career destinations of our recent graduates. You can view the full report online here

Here are a few of the highlights from the new report:

  • 93% of our 2018-2019 graduates secured a job, graduate program or volunteer opportunity within six months of graduation.
  • 75% of in-state graduates who began a job or graduate program said they remained in the state for those opportunities.
  • $63,515 is the average salary for full-time employed graduates.
  • Top employers include AbbVie, Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), Caterpillar, John Deere, Amazon, Apple Inc., Google, Microsoft Corp., Deloitte, EY, JPMorgan Chase & Co. and many others.

This is fantastic news that illustrates the impact of an Illinois degree. I am incredibly proud of our recent graduates, and I am incredibly thankful for our faculty and staff members who ensure our students succeed.

I hope you will all join me in celebrating the success of our recent graduates.


Robert J. Jones
