MyColLife is the world’s first educational platform, combining College and Career Planning, Social Network and Social Relationship Management (SRM) exclusively for students. The solution is positioned to offer the 3.3 million students entering higher education and the 32 million existing Higher Ed students the tools, resources and services using a comprehensive student centered platform, enabling the students to make informed decisions and map out their degree and career goals. These services include, personality assessment (Holland Code), degree and college selection, student networking, and group learning. Features also include access to college resources (student portal, academic support, instructional technology), and collaboration with companies and recruiters.
MyColLife is a highly practical, user-friendly tool that helps guide students towards careers that they will find fulfilling. MyColLife provides the resources that allows students to conduct self-analysis and career exploration with assistance from professionals and parents or independently. I was pleasantly surprised by MyColLife’s allowance for the user to build a personal portfolio of credentials and experiences. In my 20 plus years of youth development I have never seen a comparable service for students. My sincere congratulations to Sam Kann and the entire MyColLife team on developing such an innovative strategy to assist students at such a transformational time in their lives!
