Four Founding Principles
The Signaling Gap: Resumes and text job descriptions hinder the hiring process. Both are low fidelity representations of complex people and complex groups of complex people (companies).
The Skills Gap: The success of careers and companies in the future will depend our individual and collective ability to respond and adapt to increasing skills instability in the future (the 4th industrial revolution is coming).
Lifelong learning: We will all need to be both workers and learners, simultaneously. As one-time education gives way to on-time education, our careers must be managed with employment and education a single, interdependent, and ongoing continuum.
Aligned Interests: People want good careers suited to their skills. Employers want suitably skilled people. Education providers want good career outcomes to signal their quality, relevance, and value. Wayfindr unifies all three parties – and their mutual interests – in a single, accessible, information-rich marketplace.
