95% participate in the internship.
On average 85% gain employment.
Only 60% stay in the first job for more than a year, however alum have shown their persistence and continue to remain employed beyond the 3 years we have tracked students.
40% continue their education, most often with SFCC programs.
(Failures are often due to “bad matching” or “forced matches” between employers and students. )
