Golden Path Solutions helps employers develop the workforce of the future, increase productivity, and reduce employee turnover.
At Golden Path Solutions, we recognize that the employment landscape is constantly changing, and finding the best talent to move your company forward can be a challenge. A shortage of the workers you need and rapidly evolving technology continue to make it tough for employers to find qualified employees with the right skills, the right experiences, and the right education for success. Golden Path Solutions uses a forward-thinking model to help companies overcome these challenges in the hiring process, and provides a cost-effective and efficient way to develop your future workforce.
Working with GPS
Initially, we work one-on-one with employers to identify the talents, skills, and educational path an employee needs to succeed with their company. We do this by talking to your best employees and doing a lot of market research. What makes your best employees great? What educational programs align specifically with your company? We use this information to make your job descriptions and hiring practices better than ever, helping you market your companies and attracting the right candidates.
The Golden Path
Hiring talent remains the most important concern of executives. The unavailability of talent and skills is a threat. We have created the “golden path” of finding talent at the intersection of students and the gaps in the workforce.

HOW IT WORKS
Once we begin working together, you decide the level of engagement. It all starts with building out a profile for your current roles, which can be done in several ways, either group interviews with your best employees or one-on-one interviews, as well as interviews with coworkers and managers. The end result of this is a report that gives you better insight into your jobs and what’s needed for success, as well as a student-facing profile describing your company and your job.
After that, you can choose to share information about your company in Compass, our student-facing tool that is being implemented in schools. Students complete profiles in Compass based on their interests and experiences and are then matched with suggested careers, including your jobs, providing a great way to drive awareness of what you do and potential careers at your company.
Finally, if you choose to offer sponsorships, Golden Path Solutions can connect students who are interested in a sponsorship and fit your profile with your team. If both parties decide it’s a good match, we facilitate creating an agreement in which your organization can choose to sponsor and guide the student’s post-secondary education, including on-site training through internships or co-ops. Upon graduation, the student is guaranteed a job and potential tuition reimbursement.
When an employer chooses to sponsor a student’s education and training, Golden Path Solutions maintains an active role. Our team tracks the student’s progress, ensuring they stay engaged and continue to meet the expectations outlined in the agreement.
Partnering with Golden Path Solutions helps build a mutually beneficial relationship between your company and students. Students graduate with fewer education costs and find a job that suits their particular skills, personality, and talent. At the same time, you are guaranteed an employee that is eager to be aligned with your company.
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.
What does it mean to sponsor a student?
Sponsorships can be different for each company, but usually it means covering some percentage of tuition and expenses in exchange for a work commitment from the student and being able to influence the student’s educational path. Tuition reimbursement might be in the form of scholarships or loan repayment. It’s up to you!
Do I need to sponsor students to work with Golden Path?
No. Golden Path can help you understand your jobs to help you write better job descriptions or drive awareness of your company and careers to students through the Compass application without having to offer sponsorships.
How much time does it take from us to do the profile work?
It can take as little as 1 hour for us to do a group interview to several hours to deeply understand a role.
Does Golden Path just work for entry level jobs?
Golden Path can work for any job. In fact, Golden Path might be useful to help students understand that your company offers a variety of complex and advanced careers that they might not have ever thought you offered.
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!
