(June 26, 2018)— For the second consecutive year, Tallahassee Community College has been recognized as Florida’s top two-year college based on employment rates for students 10 years after graduation. The rankings were published by Zippia.com, a website that provides career resources for students and job seekers.

In his article titled, “These Are the Best Junior Colleges for Employment in Each State,” author McLeod Brown said the rankings were based on data from College Scorecard and the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System of the National Center for Education Statistics, part of the U.S. Department of Education.

Zippia also identified 50 top-performing community colleges around the nation for employment rates. Overall, TCC ranked 31st nationwide for the percentage of graduates employed 10 years after graduation, up from 40th last year.

“We already knew that a TCC education has a significant positive impact on graduates’ lifetime earnings,” said TCC President Jim Murdaugh. “These impressive employment statistics and our maintenance of the top ranking in Florida are further evidence that the work we do to help students identify and reach their career goals truly pays off.”
