About Career Energy
What is Career Energy?
Career Energy is a a resource providing career guidance for college students. Preparing for a career goes way beyond the classroom. Our aim is to prepare college students for the real world through practical career advice and guidance.
Like a lot of successful ventures in life, Career Energy was born out of frustration. Frustration in seeing so many individuals unhappy in their chosen careers. So many people are simply enduring their work lives versus thriving in them. After seemingly countless interactions with people in this scenario, we began to ask why. Why is it that we feel like we have to go into a career and endure it? Why can’t more people be excited and energized with what they do for a living? These simple questions are what led to Career Energy’s creation.
During one of his college recruiting trips, our founder Anthony had his ah-ha moment. After a day full of interviews with college students he realized that the large majority of these students didn’t really have a strategy behind what they were pursuing while in college. It seemed as if every student was just simply drifting along and hoping for the best. There was no energy behind what they were pursuing!
What if these students could get the right kind of career advice early enough? How could that change the current workplace landscape of drones just existing? College students could avoid the trap of enduring a career versus thriving in one. It was clearly apparent that these college students were not getting the proper career advice they needed. That needed to change.
Our founder, Anthony, has a background that is deep rooted in high level talent acquisition techniques and methods used to attract, hire and develop world class talent. He has worked with start-ups, family owned companies and fortune 500 corporations in his 20-year career. It was the frustration with seeing so many individuals dissatisfied and unhappy in their career choice, that Career Energy was born.
