Really excited to share this new career app we've been working on at Tiny Hearts in collaboration with The Learning Partnership (a non-profit).

Most sources of career info are riddled with myths and outdated advice. We're looking to change that with the Real Talk app by crowdsourcing BS free advice for students.

The Real Talk app brings together the best actionable advice, tips and resources from young people who have been there and done that.

We've profiled hundreds of young professionals – everyone from professional YouTubers, Drake’s full-time Barber, engineers at Facebook, designers to acrobats and accountants. For example if you're thinking about getting into Community Management who better to learn from then someone like PH's @bentossell :)

You can find more details via our blog > http://blog.tinyhearts.com/th-bl...

I love it - finally, some digging into the mechanics of how people get into their roles...what would be cool is if interviewees could also do a simple scoring of how much of the outcome was attributable to luck, smarts, hard work, or other basics like that...sometimes people are simply well connected, or lucky, and beat out the smart or hard working, or the...

Fantastic Robleh! I am curious about the reasoning behind going with a native app vs. a web app

What a wonderful idea. I've had the opportunity to mentor a few folks and was alarmed at the gap between what they read/learn online and in their schools vs the ground reality of the career they are interested in and this would definitely be a refreshing way to get real perspectives for them.
