Career Preparation

UH-1 Helicopter Landing on Norwich Campus interacting with Students

Norwich’s Career and Internship Center (CIC) is a key student-service office supporting the university’s mission of developing future leaders and citizen-soldiers. The CIC’s goal is to ensure all students graduate with high levels of professionalism, self-awareness, and career management competencies for career and life success. The CIC brings over 50 years of experience and passion for empowering students through professional and personal milestones.

First Destination Outcomes Survey

The First Destination Survey is completed each year by the CIC in compliance with the National Association of Colleges and Employers. The purpose of the first destination graduate survey is to give a snapshot of where our students are six months post-graduation. This survey does not provide the full picture of the career mobility of our alumni as they progress throughout their careers.

*Note: This survey includes only responses from our traditional residential student population and not our online degree-completion students enrolled through the College of Graduate and Continuing Studies (CGCS).

Of the 531 new graduates from the class of 2022, 424 (79.8%) responded to the survey
