I asked career service for some information regarding government hiring statistics and they were kind enough to send along the following. Hope it helps.
In 2009, 68% of our students were employed at graduation.
The answer to your question regarding which government agencies our students work for after they graduate is a little complicated because it depends on which graduation year.
The breakdown for 2009 is as follows:
Homeland Security = 1 graduate
Health & Human Services = 3 graduates
Internal Revenue Services = 1 graduate
U.S. Postal Service = 1 graduate
The breakdown for 2008 is as follows:
U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission = 1 graduate
U.S. Department of Justice = 2 graduates
Securities and Exchange Commission = 1 graduate
U.S. Federal Trade Commission = 1 graduate
U.S. Department of Transportation = 1 graduate
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development = 1 graduate
One of our 2010 graduates was offered a position at the DOJ's Antitrust Division but turned it down because he took a position with a federal judge. I know of one other graduate from a few years ago going to work there as well.
Other federal departments where Loyola alumni work include: US Attorney's Office, the Department of Justice, Veteran's Affairs, Social Security, EPA, EEOC. At least six other alumni work at the SEC.
Each year we have approximately 6 graduates go to work for federal judges as judicial law clerks.
I hope this answers your question.
Doesn't really reveal a lot about pay or type of work but good to see a decent representation of agencies.
