Why I'm building Huttle.co, a new community for career help

Tuesday, October 18, 2016 Posted by Chris Tung 2 comments
Determining a career path and getting that first job after college can be a pretty lonely experience. Life after college is a seismic-shift, and everyone’s path is at least a little windy. Just knowing where and how to get started with your career is a challenge in itself.
Some new grads will move to new cities to pursue jobs in competitive fields. Some will take unfulfilling jobs in the short-term to pay the bills. Some will grapple with what to do with an art history or psychology major. Some will move back in with mom and dad for a bit or take gap-year and explore the world while trying to figure out what to do next. Whatever someone decides to do after college, it’s a special mix of exhilaration, newness, fear, fun, uncertainty and sometimes loneliness.
But starting out professionally doesn’t have to be lonely. The antidote to career loneliness is other professionals who have been in your shoes. Think about it: there’s another professional out there somewhere who has done the thing that you want to do in your career. There is someone who has been faced with the same challenge and understands what you’re going through. They can help you with your situation, and in doing so, make your career journey a little less lonely. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could meet and talk to that person?
That’s why we’re building Huttle.
Huttle is a career mentorship community where people can support each other along their career journeys. On Huttle, professionals just starting out can seek guidance from more established professionals on all kinds of career topics like choosing a career path, landing a first job, negotiating salary, making a tough career decision, and everything in between.
Professionals use Huttle to help people who are just starting out. Right now, there are awesome professionals on Huttle with backgrounds at companies like Facebook, Uber, Electronic Arts, Eventbrite and more.
You can join Huttle here, and if you have any questions, advice, or feedback, feel free to email us at hello@huttle.co!
