Since the 1990s, the Wasserman Center for Career Development has conducted the annual Life Beyond the Square survey to detail the post-baccalaureate plans of NYU undergraduate and graduate students. The data collected are used to understand where NYU students engage in career exploration and where they go immediately post-graduation, including both employment and graduate or professional school enrollment. The Wasserman Center's career outcomes surveys have been an invaluable tool in determining the career development and employment needs of NYU students and alumni.
