WHY GOLDEN PATH SOLUTIONS?

Students have better insight into their talents and career options, with the potential of having a degree and job waiting for them with no debt and no anxiety.

Employers have a workforce with the raw talent and educational background they need with a workforce that is highly engaged and productive on day one.

THE GOLDEN PATH

Golden Path Solutions started from an idea. How can we help students in high school or just starting higher-ed navigate the path to their career? How do we connect students with employers who are trying to find them? And finally, how do we help employers build the workforce of the future with the right talents, the right skills, and the right education? 

We achieve this by offering solutions to students and employers. We work with students, using experiences during their school years to identify the student’s skills, talents, and what careers might be a great fit, helping them make better decisions about schooling and what careers to pursue. At the same time, we work with employers to identify the raw talents, skills, and education needed to succeed in specific roles, providing information that can be used for job descriptions, hiring, or talent management. But then we do something special. We allow students to make themselves searchable to employers who are looking for them, and we compare their skills and talents with the job profile.  If there’s a match, we create an agreement where the employer can influence the student’s education path in exchange for internships and coops while the student is in school, and tuition reimbursement and a job when the student graduates. Everyone wins!

We believe we can fundamentally change the way students navigate their future and how employers develop their future workforce. We believe bringing students, employers, and higher education together as partners is the best path. The Golden Path!

EMPLOYER FAQ

What types of jobs fit into the Golden Path model?

Golden Path’s methodology works for any kind of job, from entry level jobs to complex jobs, from careers that need no degree to careers that need advanced degrees.  Because our methodology breaks a career down into skills needed as well as defining the educational path needed, any job can be considered.

How do you drive awareness of our company and positions with students?

When your profile is completed, it is published in Compass.  Compass allows students to create their own profile based on their experiences which will match them to your positions, so not only do all students see information about your company, but also the ones that might be a great fit for your positions!

EDUCATOR FAQ

What model do you use for career awareness and skills assessment?

We use Holland Codes (RASIEC), which are a standard most career assessment tools use.

Learn more about Holland Codes here.

How do you help us create more opportunities with local employers?

When we first onboard your school, we’ll also ask for introductions to business development in the area (i.e. Chamber of Commerce, EDC, etc).  We find employers that we think fit this model, and then we facilitate a conversation with school personnel, employers, and economic development to ensure everyone is working together!

STUDENT FAQ

What does it mean to be sponsored by an employer?

Sponsorships vary by employer, but it typically means that an employer would pay for some or all of your tuition and expenses in exchange for being able to work with you on your educational path and a work agreement when you graduate.

I don’t know if I want a sponsorship with an employer. Is that okay?

Of course!  We want you to benefit from learning about your skills and the opportunities that are out there, but you can choose to not be interested in sponsorships.  If you do want to be considered for sponsorships and one is offered to you, you can always say no if you don’t think it’s the right fit

“Sanford Health is always looking for innovative opportunities to connect with candidates. Golden Path’s concept and the assessment tools they are developing have the potential to achieve a stronger alignment between a future candidate’s strengths and interests and the organization’s needs earlier in the individual’s career,”

– Jocelyn Wessels, Sanford’s Executive Director of Human Resources
