The Career Leadership Collective, a solutions group helping colleges and universities build capacity around career development and home of the National Alumni Career Mobility Survey, has partnered with Career Launchto help colleges and universities more effectively and equitably scale students’ ability to launch job or internship searches in the hidden job market, especially for students with few to no employment connections. The hidden job market is known to represent up to 80% of available jobs that never get posted on job boards, but rather come through networking and relationships.
"This assessment is a landmark career education tool for our field when it comes to teaching students how to build social capital and navigate the hidden job market. It will dramatically help career centers and campuses to scale equitable job search success." — Jeremy Podany, Founder and CEO, The Career Leadership Collective
