Life After Metro

Managing your career is a life-long process. The Career Center will work with alumni throughout this process and welcomes you to participate in our events. At some point, you’ll have to change your Handshake log-in from your StarID to a personal email account. As an alum, Handshake will remain an important center for your job search, where employers look to meet Metropolitan State University students and alums. In Handshake, you’ll also always be able to register for our career infosessions where employers come on campus to meet you.

Where do our alumni go?

Each year, Metropolitan State conducts a survey to compile employment statistics of past graduates. The data is broken down by major and program so you can get a better idea of what percentage of graduates go on to employment in their fields of study. See graduate statistics for more information.

Grad follow up survey

Alumni, one of your first duties as you prepare for graduation, or shortly thereafter, will be to take the Graduate Follow Up survey. The results help our prospective and currents students get a better idea of the job market according to majors and programs. It's super easy and takes just a few minutes, so please participate.
