Propath – A Concept For The Future Of Work
A data-rich visual career mapping tool that helps the user to plot the course of their career with a game-like interface and features.
In order to bring to life PSFK’s Future of Work report, PSFK Labs challenged creative agencies from around the world to generate product and service concepts that leverage the trends identified within the report.
Employees and entrepreneurs can use ProPath as a tool for navigating complex career choices via a website or mobile app. It allows users to set career goals and track their progress, navigating their career from intern to executive, including changes along the way.
Players can plot a course on a visually-oriented map to see what their current status is against future goals or to experiment with alternate paths, manipulating them for desired outcomes. They are also encouraged to collect career-enhancing badges and to “level up” as a means of gaining valuable professional experience. ProPath uniquely draws from current trends, such as job and compensation growth, industry forecasts and geo-data, to help make informed decisions every step of the way. Data feeds come from hiring sources like Monster. com, Behance, general news sites and local/federal government agencies. It also pulls in Twitter feeds of industry-relevant companies and people.
