A gainful employment proposal is a document which outlines the skills and capabilities of a candidate seeking a gainful employment. By gainful employment, we mean a job that is secured by a candidate right after the college or through some kind of vocational training course. The college itself often provides these jobs or courses in order to be eligible for educational grants by the government.
