    LaunchPath badges highlight skills and competencies you learn in school and through your experiences.


The people you meet in a job or internship can serve as valuable mentors to guide you to the next stages of your career, or connect you to future opportunities.


Quality work-based learning experiences are a way to build professional skills you won't learn in school, such as interviewing techniques, professional communication, teamwork, and project management. 


Show future employers that you have already built your knowledge base and have the skills that are important in your industry.

  • "Understanding the work environment was a neat experience for me, and getting to know some of the workers in Linked Learning. LaunchPath is a really great tool, not only for students to find an internship. Connecting students with employers can be a difficult task, but with LaunchPath I believe that problem won't be so difficult to do."
