How is the Find Your Grind learning journey personalized to each student?

Personalization on Find Your Grind happens in two ways: Through data-driven insights and learning content that is conducive to self-reflection, creating a personalized experience for each unique learner. Find Your Grind is all about them. Every activity is an opportunity for the student to feel personally connected to the content and create a connection to their own life. 

It all begins when students take the Find Your Grind Lifestyle Assessment. This assessment helps students better understand themselves now and prepare for the future as well. Students who take the Lifestyle Assessment determine their unique Lifestyle based on their interests and personal strength, develop greater self-awareness of their own identity through a process of self-discovery and reflection, and begin the journey to a greater understanding of who they are now and who they want to become. From there, their journey officially begins! Every activity a student completes helps further personalize their journey according to their individual responses. In particular, our interactive chat-based templates are designed to capture each individual response in order to share those insights with learners directly. Each behavior, like, and click is a data point used to shape the learner’s profile. But above that, learners have the agency to refine that profile and “choose again” because, after all, self-awareness is a journey. Additionally, at specific moments throughout the experience, students are asked to “heart” the content or attributes they resonate with most in order to refine their personal results. This is all balanced with constant exposure to “unlikely” aligned content in order to continue to provide options students might otherwise be limited from. Educators have full visibility into students’ personalized experiences through their Educator Dashboard and can help guide their discovery journey along the way.

How do Find Your Grind’s mentors work?

Find Your Grind’s diverse mentors provide candid advice on how they got started and the steps to get there. Students can dive deeper into their stories by watching 130+ hours of on-demand video content and reading in-depth, exclusive interviews to get a behind-the-scenes look at their journeys. Students can access this personalized content through their student dashboards or access the entire mentor library through the Explore tab.

Where does Find Your Grind source their career information from?

Our library of fastest-growing careers is constantly growing and delivers up-to-date information on salary, work expectations, and more.
