What is this?
The Sign.al is a website that empowers Penn students to explore unique, non-traditional, and often riskier career paths.
Since its launch in February 2017, the site has accumulated 27,000 page views and 4,000 readers.
What do I do?
I am on the founding team of three who locked ourselves in a study room for 24 hours to build this website from scratch. We have since grown our team to 16.
I am also the PM for special projects and have contributed 14 articles as a writer.
Projects I've completed include:
1. A data article on freshmen summer trends, the most visited page on the site.
3. A case competition for students to pitch why Amazon should base their new HQ in Philadelphia.
What did I use?
What am I most proud of?
The inspiration behind this project came from frustration I and my founding members had towards the pre-professional “drink the koolaid” culture at Penn. We realized the number one reason students fail to explore creative careers is a lack of knowledge and resources.
Therefore, The Sign.al’s collection of interviews, data articles, and tools aims to address this issue for all generations to come.
