Student perspective: Branden LaCour on the Career Impact Bond
On Aug. 20, Blue Meridian Partners, General Assembly, and Social Finance hosted a webinar on the Career Impact Bond (CIB), an impact-first income-share agreement (ISA) that helps people who are underemployed or unemployed access career training and get good jobs.
During the conversation, Branden shared his experience with the CIB, and highlighted the career supports that helped him land a software engineering job soon after graduation.
"This whole thing kind of changed my life — I effectively doubled my income with 4-5 months of work." — Branden LaCour, General Assembly Career Impact Bond graduate
