Here’s what it means to us—and why it matters
Each student deserves success
MajorClarity is built to provide academic advising for all learners. Students achieve better outcomes with postsecondary education—but that education can take many forms. A technical certification, two- and four-year degrees, an apprenticeship as a Hollywood stunt double: all can mean success for the right student. That’s why we start by asking “What are you passionate about changing in the world?” We help students explore a variety of relevant opportunities, and ultimately select a path that addresses their specific goals.
Less than 60% of students who enroll in a 4-year college earn a degree within six years. That means more than 40% never graduate.
Our unique formula
Students learn best from real-world examples. Our proprietary interactive career simulations have 2.3 times more student engagement than any other career readiness tool. Our videos made by real industry professionals have an 80% student completion rate. And after exploring the hundreds of pathways on our platform, students are 5 times as likely to complete the one they’ve chosen than on other platforms.
43% of college graduates are underemployed in their first job. Underemployed: the skills they studied aren’t used for their job
Career readiness should never be an afterthought
At MajorClarity, we know that the best results for students (and for our world) come from a seamless integration of career readiness into every student’s education. Call it CTE, call it career readiness, call it simply helping students get the career they want—it must be completely integrated into academic planning. Old ways of thinking often separate career readiness from the traditional curriculum. But career readiness can’t just mean checking a box.
Let’s do better: when students explore career goals that matters to them, then connect that to their current academic choices, they’re more likely to complete their chosen studies—and to fully employ their skills in a meaningful job.
Essential elements of career readiness
Make the Case
No educator is an island.
MajorClarity can help teams, schools and entire districts work together towards common goals. We understand the reality: to integrate career readiness into your school, you often have to get buy-in from administrators, counselors, or teachers—even when they’re not immediately on board.
To help, we’ve created a suite of communications, content, and strategies designed to help you make the case for career readiness to your school.
