TOGETHER, we’ll work to find your next career step.

Generation USA prepares, supports, and places people for life-changing careers.

Generation USA provides no-cost access to several services, platforms, and partners to help learners explore careers, enhance resume content, get help with interview preparation, provide guidance about the job or college search process, and lastly, provide training tools for continued success on the job long-term.

TOGETHER, we'll help you determine your path.

The success of your career search or college application process will depend on both the Generation team and you!

After program completion, you'll work with your assigned Alumni Affairs Team Member to keep going! There are several outcomes possible after a learner graduates from a Generation program:

Icon-Apprenticeship-Red Apprenticeship

Apprenticeships are an industry-driven, high-quality career pathway. As an apprentice, your employer offers learners a temporary job while developing their talents. Sometimes these are paid. Generation will help connect learners with employers and apprenticeship opportunities. Some who successfully complete an apprenticeship period are offered full-time employment.

Icon-Internship-Red Internship

Internships allow students to gain experience prior to searching for full-time employment. Having experience puts learners at a greater advantage when job searching. Generation helps prepare and place students into internships through employer partners.

Icon-Continuing-Education-Red Continuing Education

Many times, completing your Generation program is just the start of a learner’s education. Through partnerships with community colleges, we are able to offer students a continuing education track so they can continue taking classes towards a degree. Students who choose to continue their education in certificate or degree programs may also pursue internships, apprenticeships, and/or full-time employment.

Icon-Employment-Red Full-time Employment

Students in the full-time employment track will work towards searching for and gaining meaningful full-time employment. In this track, Generation prepares learners to search and interview for positions.

TOGETHER, our team will guide you.

The Generation USA team will support you in a variety of ways to figure out your next steps after graduation.
