Software designed to help students explore careers

Students are increasingly expecting personalized career advising, but that can be challenging for your team to scale. That means pairing every student with experts in industries they’re exploring – and making it effortless for those students to reach out. Field-specific career advising is a key predictor of job outcomes, but hand matching students with advisors is prohibitively labor-intensive at a large scale. WisrConnect engages your institution’s network of alumni as volunteer career advisors and automatically matches them with students. Every match is calculated by an algorithm that considers hundreds of data points, so WisrConnect’s recommendations are even more precise than those made by hand. Students can also find advisors by browsing academic communities, exploring industries of interest, or narrowing the pool down with flexible search filters. Key features include:

Job and internship explorer with flexible search filters

Ability to filter advisors by ways they can help (e.g. reviewing resumes)

Scalable networking platform for students and young alumni

AI-driven career advisor recommendations

Automated externship matching

Students at Oberlin College & Conservatory enjoy a world-class liberal arts education. Like many liberal arts schools, Oberlin strives to ensure that graduates can apply that education to real-world careers. Two years ago Lori Young, Director of Career Services, analyzed students' levels of career preparedness across their undergraduate years. She isolated three key areas for improvement:

Students needed to start exploring careers earlier.

Students needed access to more opportunities for work experience.

Students needed stronger connections to alumni.

“What I think is just brilliant is how easy Wisr makes it. In the past, students might have taken steps to find alumni but then been hung up on what to ask and how to reach out to them. With Wisr, once the students decide to reach out to alumni, it pre-populates messages that can be used as-is or customized, so it makes the initial contact much smoother.”
