The technology skills gap between colleges and employers is real – and it impacts entry level talent most of all. Just because today’s students are digital natives – because they’re facile with their iPhone or Spotify – does not mean they know how to code or operate a sophisticated business software platform. Talent Path helps close that gap by connecting your graduates with the technologies they need to successfully launch their careers.

You’ve equipped your students with the critical thinking skills and fundamental knowledge they need to be successful long term. But the relatively unclear paths into today’s and tomorrow’s high-growth technology jobs leave a gap between the graduate and these roles. Talent Path provides the “last mile” solution, building atop the core skills you’ve inculcated and putting graduates on a clear path to sought-after technology careers.

Partner with us to bring a new dimension of value and opportunity to your students and graduates.

“A recent report issued by Burning Glass and the Strada Institute finds that 43% of recent college graduates are underemployed in their first job out of college. Of those, two-thirds are still underemployed after five years, and just over half remain so after ten years. By contrast, just one in ten graduates who land a first job appropriate to their skill level slip into underemployment after five years.”

– Preston Cooper, Forbes, ‘Underemployment Persists Throughout College Graduates’ Careers’
