How I Got Started:
After graduating from college, I was working full-time, and was planning on applying to graduate school. After applying, I realized that I had applied for all the wrong reasons. Instead, I wanted to pursue a career that I was more passionate about.
So, I started brainstorming about what I wanted do for the rest of my life. I recalled utilizing a number of different online job platforms at once to help me during this process, yet I was constantly frustrated by the lack of personal and professional career support that was available in one space.
I quickly learned that my friends and peers shared in my frustration. So, with much delight, I was constantly thinking of ways of improving the [job search] platform, and providing career support. That was the beginning of my path to creating myfuturejob.net, an online career resource for aspiring men and women of Generation Y.
We understand that the formative years of your career path can sometimes be hard to interpret. Our mission is to provide an all-encompassing site that offers insight on the “how to” and “why” moments every young professional experiences during this time. My hope is that myfuturejob.net inspires people to dream big, reach their full potential and achieve their professional dreams.
