TCC again takes top spot in Florida for employment results

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.”

    TCC President Jim Murdaugh was likely deep in scholarly thoughts at the time. So we understand his failure to give 99% of the credit to Ms. Kim Moore. It’s just something that needed to be said.

      ‘further evidence that the work we do”
      Sounds like he is not taking all the credit.
