Survey of Graduates' Employability in Practice (2021)

We are interested in how our alumni fare after they leave our department with their diploma in hand. We also want to know how we have prepared them for the current demands of the labour market. That is why every three years we carry out a survey on the employability of graduates of the Department of Translation Studies.

The results of the current one can be found here (Slovak language only).

We are very pleased that up to 97.7% of our graduates are currently employed. Most of them (53.5%) found a job immediately after graduation. Another almost a third (27.9%) even while they were still studying.

Our graduates are mainly employed in professions and activities that are directly related to their translation and interpreting education (e.g. translation and subtitling of films, creation of dubbing, interpreting of negotiations, translation of specialised texts, literary translation, editorial work), or they make extensive use of linguistic, intercultural, and translational skills, or of market, technological, personal and interpersonal competences they have acquired during their studies (software localisation, project management, communication with international clients, work in the media, education and culture, etc.).
