The future looks bright for Walton graduates. Not only are there “a huge amount of new jobs in this area per capita,” students say they “have a leg-up” with local employers through the school’s corporate partnerships. Walton offers a host of “great resources, like the career center, the writing center, and professional development classes,” which all contribute to the school’s excellent placement rate. One student raves, “The career services office has to be one of the best in the nation.” Not only do they provide career advice but they “will happily make calls on your behalf and are constantly engaging you in the process of finding a job.” For full-timers, “The Walton school does a great job of setting students up with internships,” and better yet, it’s “extremely easy to get a job after graduation at a great company.” In recent years, over 130 companies recruited on the Walton campus, with students tak¬ing jobs at companies including Axion Corporation, Deloitte & Touche, General Mills, IBM, KPMG, J.B. Hunt Transport Services, NBC Universal, Newell Rubbermaid, Tyson Foods, Shell Oil, Spectrum Brands, USA Truck, and, of course, Walmart. The 2012 grad¬uating class had an average starting salary of $60,555, with a range between $35,000 and $82,000.
