If you’re a Parent...

We don’t have to explain to you—or your bank account—the advantage of having a child who knows what he or she wants to study early enough to graduate on time, in four years, as opposed to six...or more. 

As parents ourselves, we understand that you want to give your children every advantage as they forge their own paths. 

Think of us as your backups; a support team committed to giving your child a leg up on the competition. We help students...

  • Discover, appreciate and reach their true potential
  • Choose the major and classes that are right for them

  • Maintain an appropriate, impressive profile on social media

  • Hunt down a job and ace the interview
  • And more!

You’ve given your child a moral compass. Now let us utilize our years of experience in education, personal development, and career marketing to help him or her carve out a path to a happier, more productive college experience.

We know the same truth you do: a happy, productive student makes for an even happier parent.

 

If you’re a College or University...

Wish you could hire enough advisors to give every interested student the one-on-one attention they deserve? And wouldn’t it be nice if Student Affairs or the Office of Career Services could easily remind students they’re there to help?

MyPath101 makes both those things possible.

A complement to your existing resources, MyPath101 makes on-campus advisory sessions more productive, empowering students to...

  • Uncover their strengths and weaknesses
  • Determine their career paths, from finding their passions to choosing their majors 
  • Develop their résumés and market themselves to employers online 
  • And More!

In every module that tackles a topic for which there’s a school resource in place, we remind and encourage students to take advantage of that opportunity—and give them the tools and materials to make on-campus advising even more effective, whether that’s an Identity Profile dossier to bring to their academic advisor, or a draft of a résumé to take to a career advising session. We’re your satellite office...located in cyberspace. And we can’t wait to start working together. 

 

If you’re a High School Administrator...
