It can be challenging to help students find a career path they’re passionate about and will succeed at, especially given the demands and complexities of the next-generation of students. Our LAUNCH Program, developed in conjunction with Dartmouth College’s Center for Professional Development, personalizes the career discovery experience and virtually guides students through the job search process.
As a result of our extensive research over the past year, it’s also been proven to increase student engagement with your career center by 40% – not just increasing student logins and profiles created, but also workshop, coaching and event attendance as well as resumes created, jobs viewed and applications. In the end, 75% of participating students reported that they felt better about applying for jobs after completing the program.
