Many people are the first in their family to finish high school and/or attend college or obtain a credential. Because ‘we do not know what we do not know’ we often do not acquire the social and ‘how to’ make a job into a career. As a young, 1st Generation student, we do not necessarily know how do we learn from a job to see which career pathway to choose?
As the founder of Talent Hatched, I know personally how scary not knowing ‘how to navigate’ the systems can be. I am the first in my family to both finish high school and attend college. Had I been able to get a job early in high school aligned with my interest, I would not have changed my major 5-7 times and accumulated so much college debt. This is why I built Talent Hatched: so you can avoid my mistakes, create a career out of a job and earn more money to help yourself and your families.
