Kathleen Gannon is spokesperson for the Iowa Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, which represents 29 schools in Iowa.Gannon says the trend just a few years ago showed education as the top career choice, and that’s now slipped to third. Gannon says there are a lot of things that steer students to particular career choices.She says salary, availability, trends and class interest drive the decisions. She says 70-percent of the students stayed in Iowa after graduating.She says that number has held pretty steady around 69 to 70 percent.
