From 2012 to 2016, about one-third of Brown graduating seniors who sought employment chose first jobs in non-profit and government work and in the summer of 2017 hundreds of Brown students did internships with non-profits and government agencies.
You can download an Excel report of first non-profit and government destinations for the Classes of 2012-2016. You can sort this file by employer, job title, location, sector, and, where the data is available, concentration. You can use this data to help generate ideas for employers and jobs you might want to pursue, with the knowledge that Brown students have followed similar paths in the past.
You can also view our Non-profit and government report for the Classes of 2012 - 2016. Key takeways from the report include:
• Since most non-profit and government employers don't have the resources to recruit on college campus, most Brown students find first jobs in government and non-profit work at organizations that don't recruit at Brown.
• Most students who find first jobs in non-profit or government are getting hired in the spring of their senior year.
The CareerLAB posts its an annual report of first destinations for Brown graduating senors here and you can view first destinations by concentration for the classes of 2012-15 here.
Each summer, the CareerLAB asks students to share details about their internships. You can download this Excel file, to view the results from the summer 2017. The file inlcudes all the internships that students indicated were non-profit or government as well as internships where students were unsure of their organization's status. You can sort this file by employer, job title, location, sector, and, where the data is available, concentration. You can use this data to help generate ideas for employers and internships you might want to pursue, with the knowledge that Brown students have interned at these organizations in the past.
