POTSDAM Clarkson University alumni will be part of a pilot program launched by PayScale, which specializes in employee compensation data, to help universities gain insight into the work experiences of their graduates.
As part of the project, PayScale will conduct a survey of alumni on behalf of several inaugural customers for its Alumni Analytics program, including Clarkson. Each school will receive a report on the careers of its alumni.
The survey will be sent to more than 188,000 college graduates who hail from the inaugural schools in the pilot project.
The reports will include information on factors such as alumni compensation, job satisfaction and job stress, and will include gender, degree level, major, job title and various other data.
Alumni will receive a free personalized salary report that shows how they are paid competitive to the market. Personally identifiable information will be kept separate from the results shared with the schools. PayScale can provide comparable data for similar schools.
