TheCareerProject.org began with the simple premise that if a job seeker or student had access to speak to someone in any given career they would be able to better understand if that career is really for them. When I worked at a community college I realized there was a huge barrier in students getting practical real-world advice regarding what degree they should pursue and when finished with their degree, what jobs would be open to them.  Many students pursue a degree in public administration or a fine arts degree in English, with unrealistic expectations of what type of jobs they can find upon graduating.
