Are CAE/OAA and L3/CTC telling the truth? (Any from there who didn 't get jobs )

L3 claim on their website

Integrated ATPL
"Characterized by the unrivaled employment opportunities offered to graduates, this course is designed to prepare you for the role of Co-Pilot with one of the global airlines we work with. Throughout your training the entire focus will be on preparing you for your future airline pilot career and our results speak for themselves; 95% of our 2019 graduates are now flying for 21 airlines including easyJet, British Airways, TAP Air Portugal and Ryanair."
(It was 356 graduates I think in the year)

CAE oxford told me that 95%+ of their whitetail have secured jobs within 1 year of graduating.

Anyone think they are not telling the truth?

Also are their any CAE/OAA L3/CTC grads out there who haven't / didn't get jobs yet or even given up looking?
(If so please also go to the Unemployed fATPL holders thread to share your story as we dont want to clog up the forum with multiple things about the same thread but it is really important to hear from you ) - you can do it anonymously, nobody will know it is you.

Why am I getting a sense of déjà vu?
The competent trainees get jobs. Those who do not fall into this category are in serious jeopardy of having wasted their money.

You have been flogging a similar on THREAD on INTERVIEWS, JOBS & INTERVIEWS
People tend to read these other sections as well?

Why this crusade ? Journalist? Lawyer?
If a prospective trainee ~ CAVEAT EMPTOR ~ due DILIGENCE

Why not ask the ATOs to produce the evidence?

Another for the MODERATORS to consider the merit of continuing perhaps....?

I finished training in 2017, there are a small handful that still haven't got jobs. In the current environment if you work hard, pass well and don't have major character flaws you'll get a job. BUT who know what the future holds. Some have had to sort themselves out, CTC "partner airlines" is bullshit when I finished ONLY eJ was taking from the pool.

How many ways and threads to ask the same question?
If you're that tentative about doing the course with one of these companies then maybe don't do it? Asking everyone if youre going to get a job at the end of the course, or what the chances all the time is madness - the answer is so full of variables that nobody knows. This site is FULL TO BRIM with information both positive and negative about these schools. Go and see them for yourself!
And with that, I realize I've turned in to one of those grumpy old fellas on PPRuNe.
