...which addresses career orientation and also confidence building. The content is engaging and different from some of the traditional resources, making it accessible to students from all degree subjects.
The benefit of working with Udamon is that it's a true collaboration, allowing organisations to shape the provision to their specific needs.
Universities are able to support students at the beginning of their career journey, helping them to build their confidence in the early stages, allowing them to be more focused and likely to engage with further careers provision.”
Cherise Basslian, Director of Careers and Student Enterprise, University of East London
When it comes to careers, a person’s family and social network remain significant constraints on their career planning and choices. And with a ratio of approximately 1 careers adviser to 1000 students the norm at UK universities and schools: the level of support available to those who wish to forge a new direction is limited.
Meanwhile, 87.7% of UK undergrads say they ‘struggle with feelings of anxiety’. A rapidly growing issue linked to concerns about future career prospects. Widening the lens, 61% of 25-33 year olds suffering a 'quarter life crisis' say finding a job or career they are passionate about is the main cause.
So, if you are uncertain about where your strengths and preferences map onto the world of work and lack the relevant connections to guide you: your career options, readiness, and optimism will be severely limited, regardless of your potential. With those from disadvantaged backgrounds worst affected.
Consequently, Udamon's mission is to inspire and develop people to achieve their career goals, regardless of their starting point. We illuminate the best ways for individuals to flourish in a fast-changing world of work through bite-sized, interactive learning experiences.
We currently achieve this through our flagship What Path? Programme: an engaging and confidence-inspiring online career guidance programme.
“Udamon provides a platform for students to take a human centred approach to career planning. The content is rich and engaging, providing opportunities to explore and interrogate a variety of critical issues related to career and life planning in a safe and encouraging environment.”

"Udamon complements the experiences that we offer students... A 4-week summer programme goes by quickly but can have a transformative effect, the What Path? Programme allows students to articulate this transformative effect and turn it into long-lasting, practical outcomes."
Richard Lloyd - Co-Founder - GOTOCO
"This helps young people engage their full potential... We are thrilled by the work Udamon has engaged in and hope that it will further our D&I efforts. Our interns are currently taking advantage of the What Path? Programme, which is allowing them both to understand their strengths and become more confident at articulating these in interviews, as well as amongst their own colleagues. "
