The First Destination Survey (FDS) is an online survey administered at UCLA every year. This survey provides comprehensive and reliable data which can be used to accurately inform and shape career expectations of current undergraduates, new alumni, and prospective students. For example, this survey requests information about employment, continuing education, opinions about job placement and preparedness for life after graduation. Data for this dashboard was gathered from the FDS administered to undergraduate students graduating between Summer 2016-Spring 2019. UCLA obtained a total of 8413 responses from undergraduate graduating students. The survey response rate is about 33 percent of the total graduating class.
