Job opportunities MSc-alumni Wageningen last recession!
The most recent MSc-program evaluation gives information about the alumni from September 2011 till September 2012.
As can be seen, it is clear that 'our' just-graduates are doing well. Beside the recession in which the unemployment rates in the last couple of months in the Netherlands considerably rose, the percentage MSc-alumni looking for a job and finding that job on or before the moment of graduation, is higher than the two years before. This percentage is 55% in 2011-2012 and the two years before respectively 46 and 44%.
From all responents who were specifically looking for an opportunity to become a PhD candidate, 59% did find a job (in 2010-2011: 56%, in 2009-2010: 57%) . In the two years before the percentage was 3 and 2% lower.
