In early 2020, LYC Founder Sean O'Keefe partnered with Barry Posner, fellow professor, researcher and best-selling author of The Leadership Challenge and the Student Leadership Challenge, for a nationwide research study. Rose Nakamoto, Director of Career Services at Santa Clara University, was also a contributor to the study, helping with the development of the survey questions. 

Our first annual research study examined the impact of college students' use of informational interviews and cold networking on career readiness and the ability to earn internships and jobs.
