Destination Occupation takes a complex problem (making a career choice) and solves it in a concrete way.
We create relevant and relatable videos using “authentic story telling” to educate about and attract people into career paths that are a good fit for them. Video is the perfect way to communicate complex content in a clear and concise way.
Employers featured on our site tell their employees’ stories and educate people about who they are, what they do and why a career path to their company is desirable. Everyone is busy and, for that reason, career exploration videos are an efficient use of time. In a few hours, students and job seekers can visit dynamic (and often hidden) Maine employers to learn about hundreds of different careers.
