Uhh.. you're not "forced" to work with them. It's an offered service. Frankly, I'd be worried for you if you didn't have the ability on your own to score another job and had to resort to their services.
If you sign up for SoFi's "Unemployment Protection," which I'm not sure why you wouldn't if you get shitcanned, their website says the following:
"If you lose your job through no fault of your own, you may apply for Unemployment Protection. SoFi will suspend your monthly SoFi loan payments and provide job placement assistance during your forbearance period. Interest will continue to accrue and will be added to your principal balance at the end of each forbearance period. Benefits are offered in three month increments, and capped at 12 months, in aggregate, over the life of the loan. To be eligible for this assistance you must provide proof that you have applied for and are eligible for unemployment compensation, and you must actively work with our career services department to look for new employment."
Plenty of wiggle words there. What's "no fault of your own?"
Regardless, I read "you must actively work with our career services department" as its plain language meaning. If I get shitcanned, I'll be busy enough pounding the pavement on my own. I won't really be interested in forced meetings with a 22-year old intern who asks me if I have a LinkedIn page or not.
