Let's face it: just because you enrolled in college, that doesn't mean you know exactly what career path you want to pursue.
For example, you might enroll in your school's film program, but four years later you graduate with a business degree. However, after graduation, you find yourself applying for law school. And when that doesn't work out, you develop a passion in writing and pen a book.
This is the reality for many students; they go on this twisting, winding, crazy path until finally finding a career they love. But if this path doesn't sound appealing to you, maybe you should download MyPath101.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports Rachel Gogos founded the app in 2012 in hopes of helping college students figure out a career path. It isn't an assessment tool, but it uses "identity and personal branding, social media management and career marketing" to help students pick a major, make their social media accounts attractive to employers and help college seniors prepare for the post-graduation job hunt.
"I started this to help students find their path at that critical point when they’re 18, 19, 20 years old in a more efficient way, to help them find their purpose,” said Gogos.
According to its website, MyPath101 doesn't come cheap. The annual membership is $247 a year, but the rewards could outweigh the cost, especially for those who don't want to waste time and thousands of dollars trying to figure out what they want to study in college and explore as a career.
