PathMotion sets job hunters on the right track

Making career choices is never easy, so has recently launched to offer personalised job recommendations and a tailored list of current vacancies. PathMotion, which is free to use, is a next-generation career planning website, which identifies individual users experience, strengths and aspirations, to create a tailored list of career recommendations by analysing the career paths of similar candidates.

PathMotion was founded by David Rivel, who worked in cooperation with leading industry experts to create the website. PathMotion has an innovative approach that uses fact-based algorithms to come up with a list of career choices for each individual user. This is done by comparing users experience and career goals with that of similar candidates. David Rivel explains his vision: We want to be the first point of reference for job hunters, because we can find relevant jobs for them based on their experience, skills and career goals."

The website works in three ways highlighting career options, providing insight into inspiring career paths, and filtering job vacancies.

Aaron Porter, NUS President, says: "Career advice can sometimes be very thin on the ground for students and graduates, and it can be confusing trying to see how a first job fits into an overall career plan. Initiatives that provide students with advice that will help them negotiate a path through the difficult jobs market are very welcome."

PathMotion highlights career options based on users experience and personal preferences, along with those of like-minded individuals. This helps them to discover the most common career choices, along with the less common ones, and also allows them to discover possibilities they may not have even been aware of.

The site provides users with interesting insight into the career paths of inspiring individuals in relevant fields. This lets candidates see how others reached their career goals, and to understand which opportunities can open doors. Finally, PathMotion produces a filtered list of job vacancies which are tailored to each individual user.

PathMotion recently unveiled Industry Icons, an initiative aimed at giving its members the opportunity to meet successful industry figures in the UK. By simply registering on the site, and choosing which individual they wish to meet, before 15 December, participants will have the chance to attend a one-on-one lunch with an accomplished professional who will answer questions on his/her industry.

The panel of individuals includes high-ranking representatives from a wide range of sectors such as, politics, consultancy, technology, finance and media. All of these people were drawn to the initiative by PathMotions inspiring philosophy, and are happy to share their industry insights, and the secrets to their success.

David Rivel explains: Beyond our online platform, we wanted to give PathMotion members the opportunity to meet highly successful professionals who once stood in their shoes, and use these meetings to map out their future careers. In the process, they may be surprised to find doors opening in unexpected places.
