More about the COE's Recent Graduates Tool

Washington's 34 community and technical colleges produce thousands of graduates per year. This tool allows those in aerospace and advanced manufacturing to search for graduates within a category (skills or job type), school or location. This shows employers how many skilled labor positions they can hire within certain skill sets. When reviewing a college entry for a program, you may view:
  • Anticipated Graduates - how many students are expected to graduate in that program
  • Graduation dates
  • Skill types
  • Contact information for college program administrators or educators.
Employers can view this information and then schedule interviews or hire directly from our community college programs. This is a great tool for getting skilled labor into the workforce faster while filling an immediate need for manufacturers. Thanks for using our Recent Program Graduates tool.
