It is a very common occurrence for Millennials to make a huge capital and time investment to complete their university degree just to find out that they no longer wish to pursue a career within their chosen degree.
Afterall, our minds are constantly changing over time along with our passions and interests. Those who are lucky manage to realize what their true passion is over the course of their lifetime and manage to fulfill their potential while others end up working in jobs that they never really excel in due to a lack of strong passion or interest.
This is the problem that the startup QUBED, with the help of technology, is attempting to solve. They are on a mission to inspire Millennials to pursue a career in line with their talents and passions and to do so with well know universities, brands and industry experts that they know that they can trust. Whether the passion in question is fashion, sports, beauty, music or media. QUBED has something to offer for everyone.
Working in partnership with the world’s leading schools and brands, QUBED creates accessible learning experiences for students to discover career paths in growing global industries.
