This brief is one in a series of three that describe early lessons from in-depth interviews with Pathways for Advancing Careers and Education (PACE) study participants. For this brief, respondents discussed in detail what they viewed as the difficulties they currently experience in the program, as well as challenges they foresaw in the future as they moved along a career pathway. The interviews are part of a qualitative sub-study designed to improve understanding of participants’ experiences.
