WANT TO TEACH YOUR CHILD THE SECRET TO WORKFORCE AND CAREER SUCCESS? 

It's not enough to measure what your child knows; it's up to you to help them measure who they know.

The real education begins today.  We can help.

Hi, I’m Edward DeJesus the Social Capital Success Coach. For the past 35 years, I have worked with thousands of young people helping them achieve workforce and career success.  
It’s sad how many schools overlook the importance of social capital literacy.  This is especially troubling when the majority of jobs (70-80%) are in the hidden labor market. They go to those with the right strong-tie connections. The truth is your child can't apply for jobs that they don't know exist. They can't dream of careers that they can't even see.

Did you know that 50% of 2020 college graduates are unemployed or underemployed? 

Do you want to know why?  They were never taught that they are already connected to the people who will help them get their careers started.  No one taught them about the importance of social capital, how to assess this most overlooked asset and how to use this investment to build the career or business of their dreams.  76 percent of young adults have familial and developmental social capital connections in their lives but never reach out to them. They spend more time networking than social capital building. 

Do you want to teach them the difference between social capital building and networking?

As one of the nation’s leading workforce development experts, I am surprised about how many schools and career development programs don’t teach youth about the importance of social capital – the importance of connections with people, institutions, and organizations who can support students’ career development plans for the future.

That’s why I created the Social Capital Coaching Academy to teach parents/caregivers and their children ages 14-26  the secret to career success that's not taught in high school or college - the importance of social capital   And, I'm going to give them a tool to help them build it.

-Do you know that 70% of Americans get their jobs through strong-tie connections yet there is not one social capital literacy program in a high school or college anywhere in the U.S., except ours. 

-Did you know that 70-80% of job positions are not posted or posted improperly. Yet schools continue to only measure what students know and not who they know.
