Who Cares Where You Go?

Who cares where you go after graduate school, or after your postdoc?  You may think no one cares, but in fact a lot of people do (see, for example, responses to the PhD Placement Project).

There is a huge movement right now in the US to track graduates. There is the thought that tracking placement rates will help shed light on questions such as how many people are staying in academic careers, and how many are not.  What other careers are graduates going into? Who is “dropping out” of the workforce and why?
