IntegriShield Improves Graduate Placement Programs
Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) July 08, 2014
IntegriShield, a Kansas City-based compliance company, is altering the landscape of higher education’s graduate placement reporting. Recent regulation has made career schools more accountable for providing programs that place a graduate into his or her field of study within a required time-frame. Collecting this graduate data has been a challenge for some schools—until now. Using proprietary reporting technology, IntegriShield has achieved a contact success rate at upwards of 80% for its clients.
“New regulation is forecasted for the education industry and it is imperative that institutions are prepared. As an unbiased third-party we take pride in helping to protect a client’s program integrity,” said President Jennifer Flood. IntegriShield advises departments of Career Services to incorporate exit surveys and secure permission to contact employers to its list of responsibilities, which commonly include resume building, mock interviews and externships. “We track down graduates and keep in constant contact with employers. This enables us to gather more accurate career placement statistics for annual reporting,” said Flood.
Institutions are required to annually report to several organizations, including the Department of Education, various accrediting bodies, and state boards which monitor violations of federal regulation—such as Gainful Employment. Inaccuracies and faulty reporting have been known to impose costly fines and in some instances cost an institution its accreditation status.
“It is not surprising to see many institutions do not have the adequate time or resources to successfully execute graduate placement reporting,” said Flood. “Our process is to assist Career Services with Employment Verification for any graduate class—delivering timely and accurate results. IntegriShield empowers institutions to face compliance regulation with confidence.”
