Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The problem we address is the failed college-to-career outcomes experienced by too many of US college grads - particularly minorities and the disadvantaged. We’re forward-thinking people (data-analysts, biz-dev types, innovators, and yes, visionaries) who realized that non- or misinformed college and career decisions were responsible for this situation.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our solution is to develop and provide college-to-career outcomes data showing the costs, and likely jobs and salaries derived from a student’s various college/major options. And to get this information into the hands of students and families (particularly minorities and those of lower socio-economic status). And finally, to provide them with programs geared towards guiding the process in an informed and fiscally prudent manner. All this to empower better lives for our young people, and the betterment of our economy and society as a whole.

If a student (and their family) realizes during the initial college planning stage – that a particular option would likely result in no job (and lots of time/money lost + debt), then they would shift their efforts to finding a better option that would likely work out for them.

Educate To Career (ETC) was established to provide all this for free online. Last year our programs served over 1.4 million users.

Our strategy continues to one of reaching out to as many students, parents, EDU professionals and counselors - to grow our user-base -- in an ongoing effort to better the lives of young people - particularly minorities and the disadvantaged.

The programs provide personalized guidance based on:
o The student’s interests and abilities.
o College costs (including not only tuition, but also ancillary costs).
o College-to-career outcomes (jobs and salaries).
Our suite of programs includes:
o Ultimate College List Builder – builds a realistic list of colleges personalized to the student.
o CollegeBuddy – Quickly shows college majors and the jobs and salaries that they track to.
o CareerBuddy – Allows students to explore colleges and majors based on their particular competencies and interests.
o College Admissions Probability program – Shows the likelihood of the student being accepted at colleges that they are interested in.
o College Graduation Probability program – Enables students to look ahead to see their likelihood of graduation from colleges that they select.
o ETC College Rankings Index – Rates schools based on the economic value added to the student (ROI).

We started in 2013 with the idea that students/families, and educators would find that information and data relating to education-to-career outcomes would enable prudent and fiscally responsible college and career planning at the outset of the process. And, that using this information would enable young people to succeed in tracking from schooling to good jobs with decent salaries.

In 2013, we started from zero - no website, no users. Now we get approximately 1.5 users/year. Over 2000 campus career centers use our programs. Professional college consultants use our programs. The data and programs have increased greatly, and we continue to develop new data and innovative programs to help young people - especially minorities and those from lower socio-economic backgrounds.
