Millikin University has been named the top college in Illinois for helping students land a job after graduation according to Zippia, a career advice website dedicated to helping recent college graduates with their career choices.
Zippia identified the best colleges for employment in each state by using the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS).
Pam Folger is the director for Professional Performance at Millikin, as she explains the career planning process begins right as students arrive at the university.
Folger gave some of the key tools students use to land jobs after graduation and how her department feels seeing the success of their alumni.
Last year, 99.2 percent of Millikin graduates gained employment or continued their education within six months of graduation.
