😭 The bad news about starting your career

Young woman crying in a cafe

College isn’t enough to get you hired.

Nobody tells you this, but $30,000 a year in tuition and a 3.0 GPA doesn’t guarantee you a job.

For many great careers, it’s not even required. For the rest, it’s the bare minimum.

Judgemental looking business woman

Because employers want real skills.

Unfortunately, a college degree doesn't mean you have them.

Which is why 98% of job applicants get rejected.

Most college grads thought companies would be banging down their doors like a Georgia SWAT team serving a drug warrant.

Instead they just hear crickets.

✋ Don’t let that be you

You don't have to settle for waiting tables, working retail or moving back in with your parents.

👋 What every college student / graduate should know about starting a career in 2021.

Why do 98% of job applicants get rejected—or worse, hear nothing at all?

According to 75% of the people who do the hiring, the #1 reason candidates get rejected is because they don't have the right skills for the job.

Today, a college degree only prevents your resume from being rejected by screening software. We now live in a skills-based economy and skills—not degrees—are what get you the job.

It's why only 6 out of the 250+ people who apply for a job even get an interview.

And it's why we created StepLadder—to help job seekers find and break into a great career. To teach you the new rules of the game and give you a plan to build the skills you need to land the job you want.

Whether you're still trying to figure out what to be or you just graduated, we can help you avoid the soul-sucking process of sending out hundreds of job applications and getting nothing in return.

Go ahead, give it a try. It's 100% free for job seekers like you to use.
