Where Deacs Go After Graduation

Good news…

Wake students are hired and get into school

Senior Year thoughts often include, “What if I don’t get a job? Where will I live? Will I even get into grad school?” We get it – the what if’s come creeping in, and life after Wake can seem pretty scary. Whether you’re looking into teaching, finance, the arts, or heading back to school – have hope!  97% of the Class of 2017 are employed or attending graduate school within 6 months of graduation. Employers and grad schools alike see the potential and talent within the core of every Wake Forest graduate, and that includes you!
