Ensuring Career Success
What do your envision for your future? If you're not sure yet, don't worry. Most students find it difficult to imagine the day when they will graduate and step out into the "real world." That’s why Seton Hall encourages students to start thinking about career choices and planning for their future from day one.
The quality education you'll receive will make you a success. Did you know that:
- the starting salary for nursing graduates is up to $65,000 a year, or
- 71 percent of business graduates had jobs by the time they graduated, or
- about 20,000 jobs are posted for Seton Hall grads.
