Using the College Scorecard Data, we searched for the college in each state with the highest listed job placement ratings, looking specifically at employment levels at year 10 after students have graduated.

We limited the analysis to the 13 public and non-profit, four year institutions colleges in Vermont that offer at least a bachelors degree.
