Using our system it is possible to answer questions like “typically, how do people go from being a developer to a CTO” and also to explain what experience, skills and qualifications are gained during are required for this progression. By setting career destinations, our users can use Asgard to find the shortest path to success and build fast-track career and training plans.

For students and those early in their career, the power of Propel lies in our ability to aggregate and describe the qualities of those people who progressed before them. Students are empowered to focus their efforts on meeting real-world requirements, plus get insight into where they can go with their careers from an early stage.

For hiring managers and recruiters, Propel offers a powerful and unique matching engine. Requirements and candidate profiles are matched not only direct skills matches, but related concepts and topics.

For instance, an employer may seek a “front end developer”, typically offering limited examples of what they need “some PHP is beneficial”. Using traditional tools, they would receive results with “front-end” and “PHP” in the text, with no regard for what a front-end actually is!

Propel understands what goes into a front-end and not only find candidates with direct skills matches but also searches for the likes of HTML, ASP.NET, nginx, based on what has the most in common with the concepts “front-end” and “PHP”.

The outcome for employers and recruiters is a candidate search experience that is no longer naïve, but performs at the level of an industry researcher with knowledge and experience.

Propel offers intelligence at blistering pace through a responsive web site that is mobile-friendly and simple to use.
