"As a sophomore following Jay’s strategic approach on optimizing college learning for my career, I learned more about defining my career objectives and executing them than i learned all through my college years. I still wonder why they don’t teach Jay’s stuff in colleges and universities."
We have the exact same objective : Helping each student get the right job ASAP !
One of the biggest challenges we see with college graduates is how long it takes them to find an adequate job.
Research shows that more than 50% of graduates take 7 months or more to find a job that is in line with their expectations. Employers are more and more reluctant to hire non-experience candidates and it thereby becomes even more complicated for fresh graduates to nail a highly qualified job in line with their career aspirations.
At Careerology101, we know it all starts with the students' preparation for their career while in college or university. They both do a great job at providing students with high quality knowledge but students have a hard time transforming this theoretical knowledge into a valuable proposition for potential employers.
After showing them how they can determine their ideal Career Path, we teach students how to become valuable candidates by firstly getting them to specialize as much as possible in one or two market needs while they are in college. We then teach them how to demonstrate value to the firms addressing these needs. With our approach, students start becoming valuable candidates even without a working experience in that respective market sector.
By understanding and applying the principles of Careerology101, students, on average, reduce the time it takes them to find a good job by more than half (usually 3 to 4 months instead of 7 months or more). We are referring here to the time it takes for a students to find a job that is in line with his or her expectations.
At Careerology101, we see a lot of students getting good job offers even before they have graduated.
Giving students guidelines about how they should best prepare to launch their career is NOT sufficient. A lot of them do not stick to the guidelines, while others do NOT even try because they believe that nothing will help them out.
At Careerology101, we analyzed in great length the reasons behind the most successful young professionals. To sum it up, it all has to do with the MINDSET. Why do some students feel like they can achieve anything? and why do other student shy off as soon as they feel challenged?
We teach students about their subconscious minds and how it influences each an every decision they make. Then, we show them how they can identify Limiting Beliefs and how they can reverse these beliefs or replace them with empowering ones.
We see first place the impact that the subconscious mind has on students' mindset, and thereby on their future. This point is often underestimated. With some pretty simple but very efficient techniques, we teach students how to test themselves, identify subconscious limitation and ultimately make their subconscious mind work for them, rather than against them.
