Just released: the 2017 Dauphine Master's graduate Employment Survey (class of 2015)
A vast majority of our graduates are satisfied with their first job: search time, interest, salary level…
For the past 9 years, Université Paris-Dauphine has carried out an annual employment survey of Master's graduates, one year after graduation. This year's survey of the Master's graduating class of 2015 has just been released.
- 94% of those surveyed were satisfied with their jobs and with their work environment
- 87% of respondents were satisfied with their level of responsibility
- 77% of respondents were satisfied with their in-house career perspectives and with their work-life balance
Job consistent with level of diploma
of those surveyed consider that their job is consistent with their level of diploma, 81% considered that their job corresponds to their academic field and 89% that it is consistent with a Bac+5 level of education. The results are up over the previous survey.
The gender gap persists…
Although women's employment rate (86.3%) is just 1% lower than their male colleagues' (87.2%), the gap in terms of level of positions and salary is considerable higher. 94% of the men surveyed had managerial positions (cadre) compared to only 88% of the women. As for salary levels, female graduates still earn 13% less than male graduates.
One year into the job, the average annual gross income of respondents with permanent employment contracts (CDI) was €42,111 (median income: €40,000). Job search duration has stabilized at an average of 2.5 months (median: 1 month).
