Your Career Journey Begins with One Step... Inspiration

Check out what the hype’s about!


Our Vision is to bridge the vocational engagement gaps between students, employers and educators by leveraging content, assessments, and data analytics to improve the sourcing and matching of talent with employer opportunities.

"I do think that a general liberal arts education is very important, particularly in an uncertain changing world."
Steve Case, Founder AOL
Vocatio is a Liberal Arts inspired media network and talent marketplace designed to:
  1. Engage students in meaningful career readiness through employer aligned content, talent assessments, game-based learning, social media and events;
  2. Promote employers and their job ads to targeted profiled students; and
  3. Match students with employer opportunities via a proprietary career readiness and engagement algorithm.


To inspire, empower and equip students to navigate their path through high school and college to a passionate and purposeful career of their choice.


“Keepin’ It Real – The New Career-Realism for Millennials, Employers & Educators.”

As a passionate social entrepreneur and believer in the marketplace, Vocatio founder Patrick Jones has a unique perspective shaped by his own career journey and eclectic background in politics and public policy, management consulting, technology, digital marketing and entertainment.

At the core of our ethos is the belief that talent — natural aptitude and skill — is equally distributed across race, gender, geography, type of school or field of study one pursues.  The question is how do we measure talent, nurture talent and then make that talent conspicuous to the marketplace.

However, in order to bridge the vocational engagement gaps between students, employers and educators, it’s going to take more than our ambitious vision and implementation of the Vocatio talent services, media network and talent marketplace.

It’s going to take a generational manifesto and call to action about how we disrupt and reimagine the experience of preparing students and then on-ramping their talents into the marketplace.  The current system of “student loan debt and hope for the best” for students just won’t do.

We look forward to partnering with visionary employers, educators, non-profits, think tanks and innovators of all stripes to impact this challenge.

"The person born with a talent they are meant to use will find their greatest happiness in using it."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


It has been estimated that more than $60B is spent on entry-level recruiting and onboarding with 25% or $15B of it resulting in mis-hires…

Employers Need Help to:

  • Increase the scale, targeting and efficiency of entry-level talent sourcing and acquisition for growing competitive advantage
  • Treat recruiting like marketing – building a thoughtful “Employer Brand” that attracts, engages and retains the best talent
  • Go way beyond Facebook and LinkedIn to leverage social recruiting and big data from talent analytics to deepen talent sourcing networks, diversity and get visibility to “hidden talent”
In the U.S. more than 50% of 2015 high school and college graduates are unemployed or underemployed…

Students Need Help to:

  • De-mystify how the marketplace for Talent and Job Opportunities really works
  • Discover, explore and prepare for opportunities that not only exist today but are likely to exist in the future
  • Engage with a more personalized career engagement experience built on their own generationally intrinsic motivations
