xSeed: Discovering and mapping life's aspirations

During my masters, Microsoft used to organize a competition for students from certain schools for designing innovative products to solve certain problems. I don't know if they still do this. I don't know specifically what their brief that year was, but it had to do with helping students figure out their careers.

We formed an ad-hoc team of people interested from different colleges in the university. We proposed an online tool that helped students map out different possible career options and pathways, and find career support and individuals who would guide them through their journey, as they evaluated these different options. A big goal was to not let young people get disillusioned and believe that they hadn't made any progress while they were figuring it out.
