  • Career Services Benchmark Survey 2020-2021

  • Summary

    The 2020-21 Career Services Benchmark Survey Report for Colleges and Universities is a comprehensive report that provides quantitative data and analysis on the range of college and university career center operations, including office structures, services, first-destinations surveys, staffing, finance, career integration, and technology.

    It is important to consider the timing of the survey. Data were collected from September 28, 2020, to December 11, 2020. The responses were submitted in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic and reflect many of the changes career services offices made to their operations. Colleges and universities have experienced shifts to virtual instruction and support, travel bans, social distancing, economic fallout, and other factors that affected operations. NACE is reporting the data during the pandemic to assess how the pandemic impacted the field.
