Zippia, a career resource website based in San Mateo, Calif., reached this determination through the use of the U.S. Department of Education College Scorecard to search for “the college in each state with the highest listed job placement numbers 10 years after graduation.”

“This external validation of our career preparation is particularly gratifying,” said Dr. James MacLaren, LVC president. “Our unique approach to career readiness starts with students thinking about their futures as soon as they arrive on campus. We make an intentional web of connections between a student’s program of study, faculty, on-campus activities, networking with alumni, internships, and career planning. I believe this integrated approach is the reason for this impressive and consistent success.”
