The Firsthand Career Engagement Platform provides every career seeker with personalized career guidance. Powered by firsthand experiences, Firsthand offers career seekers unique resources, impactful relationships, and powerful insights so that they can discover their best next step.

At Firsthand, we aim to give all career seekers, regardless of their background, access to the best possible career insights, expert advice, and connections. We empower career seekers to navigate their careers from a position of strength, knowledge, and assurance by providing them with access to employers, mentors, career guides, virtual career fairs, and other unique resources they will actually use because they’re built with verified firsthand know-how. Firsthand also helps colleges and universities develop more meaningful interactions with students, alumni, and employers.

The Firsthand Career Engagement Platform was inspired by our employees’ own career journeys, our missteps, our learned ability to adapt, and all of the people who helped us along the way. When it comes to a career, it’s not always what you know, but who you know as well. Let Firsthand connect your students to both the know-how and the know-who so they can find their “know-you.”

Mentors

We help students connect with experienced mentors who offer résumé critiques, mock interviews, firsthand knowledge of roles and industries, and more. Our 10,000+ mentors have been there and done that—and they were once in your students’ shoes.

Company Rankings and Profiles

Every year, we survey nearly 100,000 young professionals to identify which employers are most desirable. Our expert editors compile in-depth company profiles and rank companies based on prestige, diversity, quality of life, and overall experience in order to give students an unbiased look at the best places to work. We provide detailed information on 1,000+ professions and more than 4,500 companies in more than 140 industries, covering education requirements, skill requirements, salaries, advancement prospects, and more. Our influential rankings, ratings, and reviews of thousands of top employers and hundreds of internship programs are regularly featured and cited by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg Businessweek, Forbes, Fortune, Money, and countless other news outlets.
