Talking with my colleague Zak Slayback, we were trying to visualize the typical process young people follow to get from high school to a career. Many are unhappy with it, many come out no closer to a career or fulfilling life – often farther away, and burdened by debt. They just don’t know what else to do. They see only one option.
I call it The Valley of the Shadow of Debt. You see people clamber down because everyone else is and they can’t figure any other way to get to the opportunity on the other side.
But after 4, 5, 6 or more years down there (some never return) you see some come out with a huge burden of debt and a cliff to scale on the other side. They have no climbing experience or training. They struggle climbing over each other, tossing resumes up towards opportunities, hoping for a lifeline.
This shouldn’t be the only way.
That’s why we built Praxis. To bridge the gap from where you are to a world of opportunities in dynamic businesses and startups. To set you on the path of choosing what you want to do and be, rather than following the crowd down into the valley.
Praxis provides another way. A direct line to real experience with real work and self-reflection and self-directed learning and coaching and so much more. Why wait?
The best part? After your bootcamp and paid apprenticeship, you get a full-time job at an awesome company, guaranteed.
