About Patrick

I'm looking for someone who wants to change the world by inspiring, empowering and equipping a young generation to pursue the passionate and purposeful vocations of their choice.

VOCATIO is a vocationally themed media network and platform designed to:

** engage (millennial) students in meaningful career readiness through via career and employer aligned content, social media and events;
** promote employers and their job ads to targeted profiled students; and
** match students with employer opportunities via a proprietary career readiness and engagement algorithm.

VOCATIO integrates career Curriculum, Content and Community programming through a beautifully designed mobile and web platform to lifecycle students through career exploration, readiness, placement and advancement.

By facilitating meaningful and measurable career engagement by students the data captured is leveraged through a proprietary career alignment algorithm to personalize and match student career profiles to employer profiles and corresponding opportunities of all types – internships, contractor/project-based work, and part-time and full-time jobs. Think eHarmony as an approach as it relates to Employer – Student Candidate matching (passion + compatibility + readiness).
