According to recent data from the Strada-Gallup Education Consumer Survey, individuals who view their educational experience as relevant to the world of work are far more likely to complete their education and report that their learning was worth the cost. Employers also indicate that they prefer to hire people who gain practical work experience as they study.


We created the ADVANCE Career Accelerator Toolkit to feature career exploration, highlighting in-demand jobs using key Labor Market Information and career-specific skills, to guide students toward in-demand careers while presenting the academic pathways that will help students enter or promote within a career. Students are encouraged to persist through a personalized Skills Roadmap, Skills Planner, and Skills Transcript.


After launching the initial pilot early in 2021, the application has received rave reviews from students and academic coaches. Students spend on average over five minutes per session with the Skills Roadmap and Skills Transcript leading as the most popular features.
