Paragon One, a leading career coaching company, recently announced CareerMapper, a technology platform that helps students worldwide map and launch their careers with an exploration phase that eventually helps them land their first job or internship.
Drawing from a network of more than 500 expert advisors, Paragon One's CareerMapper matches students with their own career coach plus industry insiders ranging from entrepreneurs to successful leaders from Fortune 500 companies and high institutions such as McKinsey, Google, Citigroup, Deloitte, the World Bank, and more.
"Colleges have de-emphasized the importance of career counseling and recent grads are paying the price," said Matt Wilkerson, Co-founder & CEO of Paragon One. With job prospects on the decline and student debt rising, this is a major cause for concern. Our mission has been to simplify the path from college to career. Our 95% job offer success rate with students speaks for itself. We developed software and a strong network of coaches and professionals around a process we developed called Career Mapping, allowing us to more effectively and intelligently drive results in the student job search."
With Paragon One's CareerMapper, students can manage their entire career mapping lifecycle with the help of a career coach. Benefits and features include:
"Figuring out what you want to do after college, let alone securing an actual job, can be a long, arduous journey," said Maeve Wang, Vice President, Ventures at Delos and a former Bain Consultant who was Leo's advisor. "Without the proper guidance and support systems in place, graduates are finding themselves with little direction, serious debt and unclear job prospects. When I first learned about Paragon One, I knew the company's values aligned with mine. Helping young minds like Leo kick-start their careers has been inspiring and being part of the Paragon One community has been an incredibly fulfilling experience."
