99 Career Options – smarter career choices based on your strengths, interests and the job market situation.
The platform contains:
- an entertaining podcast – where we interview experienced people from all over the world;
- a community – where you get to meet talented like-minded people, how to guides, and access to a global network
- mentoring – you can call it webinars, Q&A sessions or e-coffee; the idea is that you get to meet someone that has been there and done that, so you can ask whatever questions you might have and you are provided with steps to take to reach your goal.
99 Career Options enables you to learn from other people’s career choices and life decisions so that you confidently can find a career path that you will enjoy.
Using 99 Career Options reduces your stress associated with choosing a career path or picking a degree. You no longer have to worry about figuring out what to do. All you need is your phone where you can find information about different professions and listen to our podcast. You can use the podcast app (iPhone) or Stitcher app (android) and search for ’99 Career Options’.
It is our mission to bring equal opportunities through information to everyone and empower people from all over the world so they can help create a better future.
Hi, I’m Calin Fabri, Founder & CEO of 99CO. I am passionate about using technology to solve global problems. In this venture, I tackle the archaic career counseling system that hasn’t change since the industrial revolution. Should I study law or do an MBA? Would that help me in finding a job that I would like? Is it ok to change directions in the middle of a degree? Why should I study at all? How do I evaluate a decision that will change my life without having any idea of how it will affect me? How do you deal with the doubts?
I decided to use my background in entrepreneurship and my eagerness to find a solution to this problem. I wanted to help people be excited for the road ahead and have a better understanding of the education they are about to pursue and the job market. I created the platform that I’ve always dreamed of when I was a youngster.
I also believe that the youth is our future and they have the right to equal opportunities. That’s why we donate a large portion of our revenue and dedicate a significant portion of our time to help and bring information and opportunities to the developing countries.
I am not a proponent of “following one’s passions”. I am instead proposing that you “know your strengths and interests, learn about your options, make a choice, build some valuable skills and then you will find the work you love”.
