Explore careers. Find happiness.

Career Readiness

For those who know and those who don’t

From students who aren’t “ready” to alumni looking for a career change, PeopleGrove is for every journey. After self-identifying they’re open to career possibilities, learners get interactive, multimedia ways to explore those paths, on demand, with no pressure to commit.

Building Career Confidence

What's lacking elsewhere? People.

It’s one thing to read about a job on paper. It’s another to actually discuss what doing that job everyday is like. That’s the next level of career education. And unlike Handshake, only PeopleGrove makes access to people who hold those jobs – from within a university’s welcoming community – a part of the career exploration experience.

Learners can self-explore real resumes, alumni profile videos, and career trajectories.

No question should feel too taboo to ask. Learners get honest answers about money and life in a safe space.
