What are the 12twenty Research Tools, and how do I use them?

With the Research Tools in 12twenty, you can explore valuable, Rice-specific insights into market trends, salary data, and employment and graduate school opportunities in real time (and in a completely anonymous way). The information you'll find in Research Tools has been collected by the CCD through our First Destination and Internship surveys. You will be able to learn about the potential career paths that are available to you based on your program, career preferences, and experience. These can also help you navigate the next steps in your career and negotiate your compensation for both internships and post-graduate jobs.

Steps for navigating the Research Tools:

  • Select "Research Tools" from the the left-side menu on your dashboard.
  • Navigate to the each sub tool within the "Research Tools" module.
  • From here, select the “attribute” filter you want to investigate by clicking on the “change” button next to the standard filter on the page.
  • This will enable you to see “Recommended Attributes” or to click the “See Complete List” button to enable a pop-up of all the filter options.
    • Filter options include College/School, Employer, Industry, Major, Graduation Year, Metro Area, and more.

Take time to explore each of the Research Tools available in 12twenty.

  • The Outcomes Index provides a high level overview of the employment data collected by Compensation and Total Number of Offers for any given attribute selected (College/School, Employer, Industry, Metro Area, etc.).
    • Example: Select the "Industry" attribute and sort by Average Base Salary to view which Industry has the highest Average Base Salary.
  • The Salary Database is a powerful research tool that leverages historical salary data collected to provide current students with information about realistic salary statistics and trends. Students that have access to and analyze salary information during their career search can compare job offers based on salary, benefits, and other compensation to confidently negotiate an employment offer.
    • Example: A student receives a job offer in the “Technology Industry” and uses the Salary Database to understand how the salary offered to them, compares to other salaries offered in their selected industry.
  • The Offer Timeline is a tool that depicts a bar graph by month of when diverse employers, industries, practice areas, functions, etc (based on the attribute you select) extend job offers.

    • Example: A student that wants to pursue a career in the Technology industry wants to understand the time of year that hiring for this industry is concentrated in so that they can focus their job search efforts. The data displayed will be the total number of job offers extended each month.

  • Offer Job Source is a tool that allows you to identify which job search efforts lead to the best ROI for the type of internship or job a student is seeking so that you can focus your time on the right job search initiatives.

    • Example: A student wants to know the best way to find employment in the Medical Device industry. The data will display in a pie chart with the correlating key to the right of the chart.

  • The Offer Trends tool allows you to visualize how job offers from various employers, industries, practice areas, functions, etc (based on the attribute you select) have trended over time.

    • Example: A student wants to see how job offers in the Technology Industry have trended over the last few years.

  • The Graduate School tool allows students to search the database to better understand where their classmates have gone on to graduate school. Please note that this tool is in the development stage. If you have questions about graduate school outcomes beyond what can be displayed in the tool, please reach out to the CCD at
