Get a grip on your career
The world of work and education is changing fast. And the support tools at school are running behind big time. We want to help people choose a path that builds best on their unique talents. We put our experience to work. This is experience in professional education and career counseling, and human resources management in the USA, Europe and Asia with companies like Nike, Apple, and Amazon.
What you’ll find
1. A powerful career database to explore career options in an engaging and inspiring way, with a bias to careers of the future. We select job and career info from the best career apps and sites out there: handpicked, since we didn’t like the stuff that was web crawled for us. It will save you tons of time browsing for info.
2. Online classes, supporting you to get ready for you next stage in life. We offer classes for students as well as for parents of young adults.
3. A platform for alumni-based and community orgs to connect their student- members with their alumni or more experienced members.
What Makes FindMino Different
Careers of the future
FindMino’s career database is biased towards careers of the future, i.e. nascent or trending careers that will be ‘safe bets’ rather than ones that have existed for ages. This is significantly different from existing career support systems available, that are mostly listing standard careers only. We like to explore the future in four worlds of work. Worlds you may consider when planning your career.
A great selection of online career info
We select career info from the best career apps and sites out there, like The Muse, CollegeBoard, CareerExplorer, CareerContessa, CareerCruising, Niche, Zippia, StudyPortals, JobShadow, MyMajors, Learn.org, and Study.com.
FindMino’s career database is unique as it contains curated content to help users “sneak a peek” into various careers and related interests. We do this through ‘day in the life’ youtubes, average pay and job prospects, typical education paths and recommended schools and school finders. In addition we selected useful career specific blogs and podcasts, career paths to college and alternative paths, and relevant forums and professional organizations.
Check our ‘quality of content‘ to see how we feed the database.
