Employability content package: Yield
Purdue graduates are among the most employable people joining the workforce today. Students get to explore unique hands-on learning experiences, study abroad and gain professional growth opportunities that make employers take notice. The stories these students have to tell illustrate how powerful the Purdue name is when they start applying for internships and full-time work.
This employment content package can be used by recruiters and communicators across campus to drive yield efforts for their respective colleges and schools, especially reinforcing why Purdue offers some of the most employable graduates and why that’s important. This can be used through May 1, when the Accept Your Offer deadline hits at 11:59 p.m.
