Wisewords has announced the launch of their online platform for career advice.
The Canadian company's platform allows students and recent grads to find and schedule one-on-one calls with industry experts for personalized career advice.
By 2020, millennials will be 50% of the employees worldwide, according to the Toronto-based startup. 76% of US students end up changing their major at least once, averaging three times. Good grades "are no longer enough to get a great job," Wisewords says. The company aims to help millennials navigate the increasingly competitive workforce through insider info and tailored career advice.
"It’s ridiculous how under-prepared students are for the workforce after spending $130,000 on an education," says the startup. "Universities aren’t doing a good enough job of bridging the gap from school to work—so we are."
