This report provides data and analyses to explore the relation between our student support initiatives and student employment enhancement. Using a sample of Income Share Agreement (ISA) funded students as well as students that engage with our Talent Accelerator Platform (TAP) at no cost without taking ISAs from MentorWorks, we provide the first of its kind analysis on how a well-developed program focused on career outcomes as well as education-to-employment pathways can enhance individual employment prospects.
Here are some key takeaways from the report:
- Participants that complete more steps on TAP have a 63% higher employment likelihood, on average.
- Support provided by MentorWorks in the form of resume review, interview preparation, and job-offer negotiation is associated with 25% higher likelihood of finding employment, on average.
- On average, ISA funded students at MentorWorks have 43% higher employment likelihood. This shows the additive value of education obtained at MentorWorks ISA partner schools.
