I found the job I’ve always wanted... I found “my people"... I heard from a leader during my Fellowship who I now work for... I found my job through my EP connections... I met the people who would invest in my business...
At Education Pioneers, we hear a lot of stories from our pioneers about the power of our network. (There are a lot of them to hear from: over 2,500.)
Next to our programs, this vast EP network is the primary resource our leaders rely upon as they find and further their careers in education leadership and management. More than 70% of our working Alumni are employed in education, at all levels and across the sector and country. That creates many opportunities for our network to connect and collaborate.
The Fast Track to Senior-Level Roles
From being hired full-time at their placement organization, being referred to positions at other leading education organizations by EP peers, or learning first about new job opportunities, EP leaders say our network is a powerful, unparalleled resource for career advancement.
- EP leaders in education serve as senior managers at twice the rate as their private sector peers.
- Black and Latino EP leaders in education serve as senior managers at five times the rate as their private sector peers.
- 65% of our Alumni in education have significant management responsibilities for people, functions, or entire organizations.
