New platform of tools to provide students with resources they need for the career they want
NEW YORK, January 27, 2015– PwC US today announced the launch of CareerAdvisor, a free, interactive and customizable tool that will help students discover their unique interests and professional goals as they prepare to enter the job market. Designed to support students of all majors, CareerAdvisor aims to equip the next generation of leaders with what they need to effectively develop their resumes, prepare for interviews, build an online presence and successfully launch their careers. CareerAdvisor is accessible online and via all mobile devices.
“Good grades, extracurricular activities, and a strong resume alone won’t guarantee that you will find yourself in the career of your dreams,” said Michael Fenlon, PwC’s US and Global Talent Leader. “CareerAdvisor helps job seekers discover who they are, what they want to do and how to get there. Whether it’s accounting, engineering, teaching, science or health professions, or management consulting, CareerAdvisor acts as a motivational tool for students to reflect on their passions and take control of their future.”
CareerAdvisor is comprised of four areas, each which includes activities, articles, videos, tips and tools to give users an advantage in the job market. Students can customize these resources to create their own personal experience to meet their career planning goals and stand out from the competition.
The four areas of CareerAdvisor include:
1. Assess – Identify your unique strengths and interests to select a career path that is right for you
2. Maximize – Tap into the resources you’ve got in order to make informed choices that can open doors to new opportunities.
3. Prepare – Develop a job search toolkit that will showcase your unique talents and the value you can bring a potential employer
4. Present – Understand how to strengthen your personal brand, communicate with confidence and build relationships so you can stand out from others and make your mark
“The foundation of leadership lies within self-discovery,” commented Rod Adams, PwC’s US Recruiting Leader. “PwC is dedicated to helping build leaders at all levels by helping them realize the career and life success they aspire to achieve, and CareerAdvisor is another way in which we are fulfilling this mission.”
CareerAdvisor can be accessed online and via any mobile device so users can update their profiles wherever they may be. The tool allows users to link their social media accounts to their profile.
