Share Article

Go Getter provides online career preparation and acceleration courses for college students.

Getting a great first job that pays more and landing that job sooner can amount to millions more in lifetime earnings. It may seem bold for us to guarantee jobs to students in this economy, but that’s how confident we are in our services.

In an economy where underemployment among college grads is a growing problem, Go Getter, an online career preparation startup launching this fall at U.S. universities, is guaranteeing students a great job after graduation. Students who take the Go! Get The Best Job™ course will land a job in their field within 90 days of completing the course, or Go Getter will provide a full refund. Go Getter is the only career service in the country that guarantees it can help students get full-time jobs and internships. The company is co-founded by San Francisco residents Valerie Wong Meyer (Cal ’06) and Dan Meyer (UCLA Anderson ’06).

Go Getter puts college students and recent grads through an intensive course done in 1-on-1, personalized online sessions. The course provides students with coaching on mock interviews, resume and cover letter writing, networking, personal branding and LinkedIn, and includes access to industry-specific business executives who assist in career exploration and mentoring.

“Up to 70% of graduates’ lifetime earnings growth is determined in the first ten years of their career,” says Dan Meyer. “With the New York Federal Reserve reporting that over 50% of college graduates are underemployed and studies showing over 30% of college graduates are unemployed, it’s crucial for students to start their career with the right job. Getting a great first job that provides excellent advance opportunities and pays more, and landing that job sooner can amount to millions more in lifetime earnings. It may seem bold for us to guarantee jobs to students in this economy, but that’s how confident we are in our services.”
