This study sought to identify longer-term consequences for employment of students completing advanced degrees at the University of Oregon, Oregon State University, and Portland State University. Telephone interviews were conducted in November 1996 with 1,236 advanced-degree recipients who had completed degrees between 1986 and 1991. The study found that 93 percent of respondents were employed, and that 94 percent reported that they were satisfied with the education they had received. It also found that 61 percent of respondents took jobs in Oregon, and that most graduates had jobs in Portland rather than in other Oregon regions. The survey results indicated that 65 percent of the respondents completed an internship, and that the median personal income in 1995 for graduate-degree recipients was between $40,000 and $49,999. The study also found that 20 percent of the respondents were employed in jobs in the United States that require the use of a second language. Seventeen data tables present additional results. (MDM)
