We’re excited to announce that, after five years under the Evisors brand, we’re changing our name to Firsthand and launching a new website. It’s a change that celebrates both where we’ve been and where we’re going. Alongside this name change, we’re also announcing the launch of a revolutionary new product for career offices – The Career Advisor Platform (see below).

Although our name is new, our mission and our commitment to our clients remains unchanged. Our mission is to Democratize Great Careers by connecting as many job-seekers and alumni as possible to enable career opportunities. Under the Firsthand brand, we’ll be unifying our efforts and recognizing that our mainstay is no longer simply selling consultations with advisors, but also developing platforms that elevate careers and engage alumni. Moving forward, “Powered by Firsthand” will be the new moniker that ties together Firsthand’s Platforms, including Evisors.com, which will stay as is.

Why Firsthand?

Connecting job seekers with firsthand insights and help from people with firsthand industry experience is the essence of what we do. We provide a service no one else is doing, namely connecting the job-seekers raising their hands, asking for help, with the alumni extending their hands to provide it. The ascending F in our new logo symbolizes the trajectory of the careers we hope to elevate. The diagonal line throughout our branding symbolizes the upward journey our advisees will travel towards a great career, as well as the ascending path from advisor, to mentor, to job sponsor that our alumni will follow.

Career Advisor Platform (CAP)

Affectionately nicknamed the “CAP,” this new platform is built for career offices and provides access to unlimited consultations with our pool of 4,000+ vetted global career advisors. The CAP is unlike anything we’ve ever offered or that exists in the marketplace today. It gives career offices the chance to offer unlimited on demand career help without having to involve their alumni organizations and without needing a big budget. The CAP is available for purchase now and ready to launch to students this August. Contact sales@firsthand.co for more info.

What about evisors.com and existing AMPs?

Evisors.com and our Alumni Mentor Platforms (AMPs) will remain and operate as before, backed by the same great team and customer service. The only visible change will be the addition of the “Powered by Firsthand” moniker. Firsthand.co will become our new corporate website, but the URLs for Evisors.com and all our AMPs will stay the same.

We could not be more excited to share this news with you and for the great things in store for our advisees, advisors, and clients. Email us at hello@firsthand.co or post a comment below if you have any questions.
