The college experience means many things to many people — it can be a place to make lifelong friends, expand the mind or learn some of the skills associated with participating in a democracy. Still, over the past few decades, policymakers, employers, parents and students have all coalesced around one goal they believe college should achieve: Preparing students for a decent career. Right now, organizations like TalentPath are working with college graduates to help them fill gaps in their training and land jobs. Recent graduates participate in an immersive training program for 12 weeks and then TalentPath hires them out to companies for roughly 18 months, paying their salary while billing the client for their services. After the 18-month commitment, the company has the option to hire the TalentPath worker as a full-time employee.
