How it works

Through our partnership with the National Student Clearinghouse®, we make it easy to match your student records with Lightcast's database of over 120 million individual profiles aggregated from professional portfolio and networking sites. The result gives colleges and universities the ability to analyze alumni career outcomes and pathways for any academic sub-unit (college, department, major, etc.) and cohort.
