What is OurGen?
OurGen is largest curated directory of student careers information. It also serves a global community for today's younger generation to become successful professionals.
We believe your career is your life as an adult and without a good start, it closes opportunities for a successful life. No student should face barriers to achieve their dream career, yet information and networks are impossible to navigate and find. OurGen helps students find specific content and events to educate them on how achieve a career they love.
Where does OurGen source its content?
It started out as a crowdsourced spreadsheet: That spreadsheet had about 20 contacts who worked at different companies. That was great to start with, but crowdsourced information has, by nature challenges with reliability and consistency.
For example, some people had contacts already in the company meaning they skipped some stages of an application, or they applied for a job 5 years ago with different hiring processes.
To mitigate this, we switched to a publishing model, where we have a team of content creators who are introduced to a contact at a company who is recently employed by them. Our team members individually interview each insight using the same method and questioning. We then get the raw information and put it through screening, comparing it to similar insights, using our knowledge of company's processes and cross checking with our other experts.
