The research behind Interlink
In a longitudinal study, we compared knowledge acquisition and retention, career progress, and website use for (1) trainees who attended live training workshops and had access to the training website developed by Interlink, and (2) those who had access only to the training website.
In both groups, knowledge and skills improved between the pre-test and 9-month follow-up. Likewise, professional activities and confidence levels in career-related areas increased in both groups. Additionally, both groups found website features such as presentations, interviews, and peer collaboration tools to be valuable and rated Interlink services highly on a number of measures.
