Job Satisfaction by major

This list shows the percentages of people who are satisfied with their job, after graduating in each major. It also shows the % who feel that things are generally going well.

A variety of factors -- such as number of years past graduation, whether or not they stayed in field/major, and the number of people surveyed affects this number. We did not survey for personal factors such as marital, health, etc.
