Pathways After Service: Education and Career Outcomes of Service Year Alumni

Posted on February 5, 2019

Burning Glass Technologies and Service Year Alliance partnered to address pathways after service by analyzing the resumes of tens of thousands of service year alumni. Burning Glass developed a database of more than 80 million resumes and 800 million job postings, and from this, identified over 70,000 resumes of service year alumni and a comparison group of 100,000 otherwise similar peer resumes. Burning Glass looked at how often service year alumni return to school to complete a bachelor’s degree, what career areas they enter into after service, where they are working well after service, and what skills they cultivate throughout that journey.
