Student Professional Launch Package™
(See below for a full description of package tools)
The Inspire Careers Student Professional Launch Package™ is designed to help students and new graduates develop the confidence, skills, and tools for a successful launch into the professional world.
An investment in a student or new graduate’s future is the gift that will lay the foundation for ongoing career accomplishment and satisfaction. According to a recent article from Forbes by Preston Cooper, 43% of recent college graduates are underemployed right out of college, and the majority remain so for many years after graduation. Poor career planning results in a lifetime of lower earning potential, greater job disengagement, and diminished job satisfaction. Set your student up for success with the Inspire Careers’ Student Professional Launch Package™.
While most students and new grads come to Inspire Careers via recommendations from their parents, we feel strongly that the ongoing work is exclusively between the student/new grad and the coach. Working one-on-one with a professional career coach instills responsibility and accountability and sets student/new grad expectations for meaningful professional relationships in the workplace.
