LAUNCH provides students with to-do’s, timelines, tips, and tools to help them launch their career.  

 

Why LAUNCH?

It can be challenging to help students find a career path they’re passionate about and will succeed at, especially given the demands and complexities of the next-generation of students. Our LAUNCH Program, developed in conjunction with Dartmouth College’s Center for Professional Development, personalizes the career discovery experience and virtually guides students through the job search process.

  • LEARN about yourself
  • ASSESS the job market
  • UNDERSTAND career skills
  • NARROW your search
  • CHOOSE your career
  • get HIRED

As a result of our extensive research over the past year, it’s also been proven to increase student engagement with your career center by 40% – not just increasing student logins and profiles created, but also workshop, coaching and event attendance as well as resumes created, jobs viewed and applications. In the end, 75% of participating students reported that they felt better about applying for jobs after completing the program.

"Reducing student uncertainty about postgraduate endeavors is critical among career educators. To fully achieve uncertainty reduction, the impetus is on early and continued student engagement with our offices. The LAUNCH Program is designed to take students through an organized yet flexible process to discover their career objectives and prepares students for meaningful interactions with employers. LAUNCH is successful at assisting students with understanding of self in relation to majors, abilities and careers. The program built student confidence, especially with interviewing. Not only did the program drive engagement with our career center office, but it sustained engagement throughout the course of the school year."

How to Get Started? It's as Easy as 1-2-3! 

The LAUNCH program is easy to use! We’ve created a basic LAUNCH Program template that you can utilize within the GradLeaders Career Center CareerTracker module that includes all of the success steps and resources you need to virtually guide students to right-fit careers. Plus, everything is editable so you can add your own steps or remove any step of the program. 

Step 1:

If you already have CareerTracker turned on in your platform, getting started is easy! To access the template, go to Other Activities > CareerTracker Templates from your main GradLeaders Career Center admin dashboard. You’ll see a template named LAUNCH Program Success Steps.
