Employer Connection

Where Students and Careers Connect

Energizing Classroom to Workplace

Connecting with employers can be difficult for students, especially in a competitive job market. That’s why Cengage established Employer Connection: a partnership with major industry employers that gives students direct access to job opportunities. It’s our way of powering student success beyond the classroom straight into their careers.

Qualified students are interviewed—and potentially hired!

Protecting Student Privacy

When students opt-in to the Cengage Employer Connection Program, they still control how their data is shared with prospective employers. Students choose whether to share their course grades and outcomes, but do not have to do so. Further, student data is securely stored separately from the MindTap and ed2go platforms, and participants can opt-out at any time.
