Quinncia is a career readiness platform that uses AI to help the 5.5 million college students that graduate every year to land a great entry-level job and to decrease the number of unemployed or underemployed students on graduation day. 
72% of students entering the workforce are either unemployed or underemployed when they walk across the stage and 80% of employers believe that graduates applying for entry-level jobs are not career ready.  Universally, employers claim that graduates lack the soft skills necessary to thrive out of the gate in the workplace.
All too often solving this predicament falls on the shoulders of the career advisor. With the average student to advisor ratio nationwide being 3000:1 this can be a daunting task. At that rate, it would take an advisor over 7 years to help 1 crop of students to become career ready. Quinncia helps universities scale career services by using AI to make this possible and creates partnerships with professors to integrate various aspects of Quinncia into the classroom.

What's Innovative About Their Solution?

Quinncia is the only platform in the career readiness space that uses AI to give personalized advice to students. Their solution accomplishes three things with the first being that it analyzes resumes and provides personalized feedback for maximum performance and ATS compliance. Second, it conducts, analyzes, and provides feedback on personalized mock interviews.  This assists students in highlighting the skills they can bring to the table for employers and provides advice on where they can gain additional skills that employers seek.  Third, it provides nudge-based career guidance to students prompting them to complete necessary milestones throughout their student lifecycle.
