Wisr is a network that helps students and young alumni connect with advisors affiliated with their school (usually alumni, staff/faculty, parents of students, and supporters of the school). It's mainly geared toward helping students learn about careers and industries they find interesting. Students can search for advisors by location, industry, company, and job title, making it easy to find mentors who have relevant experience. Wisr uses a simple process to facilitate meaningful connections between students and advisors:
- A school's students and alumni join using their LinkedIns or emails, creating a directory of students and advisors
- Our matching algorithm helps connect users based on affinity, affiliations, career track, and interests
- Users coordinate advisory sessions with mobile scheduling and an automatic phone bridge
- Automated personalized recommendations ensure that users never run out of awesome people to connect with
