PREPARING OUR STUDENTS FOR THE FUTURE

CAREER READINESS PROGRAM

Minds Matter of Los Angeles focuses on career readiness in our 3-year program and while students are in college. Students practice: putting together strong resumes and cover letters, successfully applying and interviewing for internships, communicating with professional polish and building professional networks.

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

ENDORSEMENT

Without an endorsement, a cold resume has a 1-in-152 shot of leading to a job. Students from underrepresented backgrounds often don’t have the broad professional networks that can lead to these types of referrals.

EMPLOYMENT

Only one in four of the 1.2 million low-income or first-generation college enrollees each year will graduate and land a strong first job or enter grad school.

INTERNSHIP

Students who partake in internships have greater clarity as to what they want out of their coursework as well as their post-academic pursuits.

EXPERIENCE

Students who have career experience have demonstrated higher incomes and lower rates of unemployment 5 years out of school compared to their counterparts with less career experience.
