The Career SAVAGE Story
Your favorite coffee shop barista knows how to craft the perfect americano and also knows the ocean is divided into five layers, more scientifically known as zones.
Your local retail sales associate can help you pick out a gift for your loved ones and can effortlessly educate you on African American history.
The delivery person from your favorite Thai restaurant always seems to put a smile on your face after routinely leaving a complimentary Thai tea with your order, and it just so happens that they graduated at the top of their class with a degree in neuroscience.
The reality of these three instances is what Career Savage aims to prevent.
Career Savage was founded in 2017 with a mission to help college students and entry-level working professionals feel more prepared for the real world.
College advisors are often overburdened and don't have the capacity to career plan with each of their students. As a result of experiencing the same career confusion so many students feel, Kyyah brought Career Savage to life.
Career Savage prides itself on offering everyday people relevant and current career advice. Career Savage empowers clients to take control of their career goals and create opportunities in order to achieve them.
"If I don't go to medical school what other jobs can I get with my biology degree?"
Kyyah asked her college advisor this question in 2013 and never received an answer.
She began pursuing her B.S. in 2012 and completed her studies in 2016. Throughout her undergrad education, her advisor only ever advised on what courses were required to graduate.
Beyond frustrated, she took her career into her own hands sophomore year only working jobs relevant to her major. From a Pharmacy Technician at CVS (2013) to an acting Associate Director in Regulatory Affairs (2022), Kyyah has worked her way up quickly and efficiently using what she calls a "Career Savage Mentality".
Kyyah created Career Savage in order to bridge the gap between advisors and students. "Everyone needs career guidance! That's why people seek mentorship even when they are well into their careers", Kyyah states.
High school & college students, Graduates, and working professionals all require stable, relevant, and current guidance throughout their careers. Instead of waiting for school systems and corporations to get with the times, Kyyah thought to create a solution: Career Savage.
Success is what you deem it to be. Always abide by your own definition, not societies.
