Upon graduation, most of our graduates discover that finding a job becomes a full time job. In addition to STRIVE DC’s direct placement efforts, we offer a range of services to help graduates actively and aggressively engage the job search process. Some of these services include training graduates how to build and sustain employment networks; teaching them important follow-up skills; showing them how to dress for success; and education them in how to strategically use local employment resources. STRIVE DC attempts to monitor and measure graduates workforce engagement efforts to increase the likelihood of job placement success. In addition, we facilitate networking opportunities for all graduates enrolled in WEX.
