At Brainstorm, we envision a time when all students will confidently pursue their best-fit educational opportunities, access the career exploration and development support they need, and easily transition into the right opportunity to launch their careers.
Our mission, therefore, is to eliminate friction, inefficiencies, and misinformation from the student recruitment, career development, and hiring processes.
We do this by providing strategic consulting, actionable research and information, and effective training to the employers that hire students and the institutions that educate them and support their development.
