GV graduates in the workplace

Grand View graduates have a history of remaining in Iowa and contributing to both economic and community vitality.  Typically, more than 80 % of each graduating class stays in central Iowa.

Grand View surveys all graduates from each class approximately six months after graduation.  According to our most recent survey,  2011-2012 graduates stayed in Iowa in large numbers,  particularly within the Des Moines metropolitan area. Only six percent of the graduates moved to other states or out of the country. Among those graduates moving out of Iowa, nineteen were pursuing further education, and ten left for employment.

Central Iowa employers hire Grand View graduates again and again, a testimony to the preparation they receive and their performance on the job once hired.
