A school’s success is primarily gauged by the accomplishments of its graduates, particularly by the roles they take in nation-building (Bringas, 1979 in Gado, 1993). As promulgated by Outcomes- Based Education, the primary need now is to identify the desired end product – what the graduates become - so that the strategies and processes can be developed by the school (Butler, 2014). Programs set by the school play a critical role in making the students understand their options and the opportunities available in every career path they wish to take. Most schools have introduced clear and specific programs to assist their students along these lines. Likewise, the use of alumni tracer studies to aid such school programs has often been used for curricular improvements and for guidance services improvements, specifically in career counseling service.
