How it Works


You select from pre-vetted, talented students while they’re entering or already in school.


You commit upfront to repay their loans after graduation, in exchange for a future employment period.


Students sign employment agreements while still in school, and officially join your company after graduation.


Once hired, we handle all reporting and repayment, and you only pay down loans while employees are retained—so there’s nothing to claw back.

The results speak for themselves:
