"Outcomes data that demonstrates value"
We’re a small campus and pride ourselves on our internship and career placement rates, but we’ve struggled with knowing how to tell that story. Having the labor market data for our alumni has given us the information we need to share real outcomes and demonstrate the value of our degrees. We’ve also been able to share the results with academic departments so they can see how students talk about their skills and experiences. This has helped us get faculty more engaged with career services and connecting with students about career readiness. After our contract was signed, it took longer than expected for us to get our alumni data to them for analysis. When it came time to renew the contract, they took that into account and worked with us on the extension dates. Not every vendor would give us that kind of flexibility and I highly recommend them for that reason.
