Job Placement Rate - 2009 through 2013
The JRCERT identifies the following parameters in calculating job placement: Job placement rate is defined as the number of graduates employed within 12 months of graduation in the radiologic sciences compared to the number of graduates actively seeking employment in the radiologic sciences. The JRCERT has defined not actively seeking employment as:
1) graduate fails to communicate with program officials regarding employment status after multiple attempts
2) graduate is unwilling to seek employment that requires relocation
3) graduate is unwilling to accept employment due to salary or hours
4) graduate is on active military duty
5) graduate is continuing education.
