TAMIU Named to Top Ten of Best Colleges for Getting Jobs in Texas

Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) has been singled out as one of Texas’ best colleges for getting jobs. 

The new Zippia 2018 ranking looks at those colleges and universities most successful at helping graduates land a job.  It ranked TAMIU as eighth in the State,  citing a 91.58% student employment.  TAMIU was also the only A&M System campus to be included in the Top Ten ranking of public and private institutions.

Other ranked A&M campus among the 81 institutions reviewed were Texas A&M University, 13;  Prairie View A&M University, 17; Texas A&M University - Commerce, 43; West Texas A&M University, 44 and Tarleton State University, 46. A&M-Kingsville and A&M Corpus Christi were ranked 54 and 56 respectively.

TAMIU president Dr. Pablo Arenaz said the Top Ten ranking is a clear indicator that the University’s graduates can bank on brighter futures with a TAMIU degree.

“There is simply no better predictor of career and personal success than securing a college degree.  It opens doors to brighter futures and, as we remind our students and graduates, ensures that they will ‘Go Beyond.’  This ranking also quickly follows on an  American Council for Education report that scored TAMIU as the top Texas college highlighted in its report, ‘Minority Serving Institutions as Engines of Upward Mobility,’” Dr. Arenaz noted.

He said the University’s Office of Career Services is an aggressive advocate for students as they begin their journey to employment and affords a broad range of support services.

“From career fairs and interview workshops to wardrobe tips, and our Career Café, TAMIU students and graduates are able to target and meet their career goal,” Arenaz concluded.

Zippia editors said they used information drawn from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) and College Scorecard data to make the ranking determination.  Their research identified those institutions with the highest listed job placement ratings, looking specifically at employment levels at year 10 after students have graduated.
