For the second consecutive year, Quinnipiac has been named the top college in the United States for successful career placement following graduation by Zippia.com.

"At Quinnipiac, we provide the knowledge and tools you need to make an impact in any field you choose. We create a solid foundation for your future success. In a landscape dominated by small, liberal arts colleges and large, research institutions, Quinnipiac is unique. We focus on career readiness and deliver extraordinarily well-prepared professionals," said Annalisa Zinn, vice president for academic innovation and effectiveness.

The site, which is designed to offer the tools to find users the right career, examined data from the U.S. Department of Education College Scorecard to determine the college with the highest listed job placement numbers 10 years after graduation in each state.

The site’s experts then sorted every college in the country from the highest employment levels to the lowest. Colleges that did not have that information was excluded from consideration.

“We opted to focus on the best colleges to graduate with your bachelor’s degree. To do this we only looked at colleges that predominantly offer four-year degrees, excluding some excellent two-year colleges,” the site stated. “We then selected the college with the highest rate of employment in each state, rounding to the second decimal point for readability.”

Quinnipiac’s 96.10% placement rate topped every other college in the country.

“For the second year in a row, Quinnipiac University has topped our list as the best college for getting a job,” Zippia stated. “The private university has the highest job placement rate at 96.1%. With those kinds of odds, you’re liable to join the Bobcats on your road to employment. The school’s motto? Bobcat Strong. And with that kind of rate, we couldn’t agree more.”
