To ensure all students benefit from the life-changing social capital mentorship provides, universities need to offer more than one way to mentor. Designed to spur career connections between many mentors and many mentees, PeopleGrove’s Career Access Platform™ offers students and alumni the flexibility to connect in multiple ways: informal or “flash” conversations, Super Mentor relationships, and traditional mentorship programs (which PeopleGrove can optionally manage for you). For small campus offices, providing more ways for students to engage means more learners are being served – all without the need for added resources.
Career guidance on the most helpful network ever created
Students shouldn’t have to know how to network like a professional when they’re not a professional yet. PeopleGrove uses smart technology to teach learners how to reach out for career help, advice, and support. Through embedded prompts, nudges, guidance and templates, conversing with a mentor becomes a lot less intimidating and engagement thrives.
The first fully encompassing solution we've found to build university community online.

Why Career Access Matters
Student & alumni career assistance that’s lifelong
Let Learners Try New Things
Explore > prototype > get hired
Career journeys aren’t linear, which impacts first-year students and experienced alumni alike. Both feel supported when they can discover career options, test their interests, and obtain new opportunities. PeopleGrove is the only platform that lets a university provide all this in one place.
Who wants to scroll through feeds of advertisements when looking for help? PeopleGrove is the easiest way for students and alumni to get jobs, connecting learners to not just openings, but also to insider alumni who are waiting to help learners get offers.
To grow your community into a thriving success, we apply the successes we’ve seen with our 450+ partners. The best part? We handle all the work within the platform, so all you have to do is evangelize on your campus and pocket the accolades.
