Career Mentoring through Social networking Portal

Project Name: Career Mentoring through Social networking Portal

Client

Business objective of this client is not about connecting 500 closest friends and colleagues, but enabling people concerned about building their career to engage the ten or twenty key people who will add true value to their career. The site offers something other sites do not - personalized and actionable advice from real people who are committed to help people build their career. One quality relationship can do more to launch their career than hundreds of average ones

This site makes it easy for “advice seekers” to ask the right questions to people who want to help them succeed. There are no awkward phone calls and emails where one is not sure what to ask or how to ask.

Why STPL?

STPL provides software services to augment the development resources of any business entity, weather the same is involved in a software product development or is automating their own business processes.

STPL’s approach in providing such services on “work on hire” basis and strong internal processes to protect the client's intellectual property ensures that the clients can focus on their main business and leave the constructions of software solutions to STPL.
