DegreeStory

April 24, 2014 -- Submitted by Phil, a reader from Scottsdale, AZ, who is affiliated with the site.

DegreeStory is a free website for people to share college and career experiences. We collect real-world stories from people in all different fields and make them freely available on our site for anyone to read. This helps students choosing their first career field, or adults making a mid-career change, to get a more detailed, accurate picture of the different career options.

The idea behind DegreeStory is that many people choose their career field without a lot of information about what it’s really like. Once they finish school and start working, they often realize that there is a big difference between how they thought their career field would be and how it actually is. This is particularly serious in the current job market, where different fields have such different opportunity and potential.

DegreeStory provides that “missing piece” of the career decision puzzle – real experiences from real people. Reading their stories on our site can give someone a better picture of what the different career options are like and hopefully make a more well-informed career decision. Anyone who is already in school or working (or retired) can also share their own experiences on our site to help out others.

DegreeStory was launched towards the end of 2013. We currently have about 2,400 stories on our site, including about 1,000 general stories from all different fields and about 1,400 stories from teachers. We are working hard to increase our story base and hopefully get it over 100,000 by the end of 2014.
