"Today's students are very tech savvy, but also they want everything quickly, so having this important information in an accessible media format they prefer is a great help."
Marsha, Community College Administrator
"I loved how uwannadu takes my students all the way through the timeline, from matching careers to their interests, illuminating the career, showing what degrees to get, what schools offer those degrees and then what companies hire that job and even current job opportunities. It's a GREAT resource. And it's free! Love it."
