PloPdo was founded with core idea of bringing method to the professional engagements, especially for freshers, as the conventional approaches have failed to stand the demand of gig economy. We are at heart a research firm dedicated to closely monitoring the trends in education and centers of employment and try to craft tailored and comprehensive products which help institutions and individuals focus more on their core competencies and worry less about the tremendous rate at which their industry and skill requirements are changing. We offer a collection of solutions targeted at educational institutes, individuals as well as companies.
How it Began
Plopdo came about when we realised the need to build an open yet close-knit platform for barter of career related information. There is a growing need for students and professionals alike to learn from a community of like minded individuals who can mentor and guide each other in making career choices. Plopdo is a community of individuals, students and professionals, who learn from their peers and pay it forward by guiding those they can help.
In addition to the information exchange that we facilitate on our platform, at the heart of it, we are a research firm (or so we call ourselves) which focuses on the trends of the ever changing professional sphere. We closely observe and methodically collate information about challenges that individuals face in their professional life. The idea is make our members aware of what lies ahead so that they can focus on working on what they like rather than evaluating choices.
One key benefit we offer to our members, especially the young ones, who associate with us for a longer period is that whenever they feel the need to learn something new, we find them the right courses and also take care of the finances involved. Not just that, we find them suitable job or internship so that they can practice what they learn and by the time they feel they are ready, they can start working like a professional. For those in doubt, but not looking for a long term association, we arrange a mentor who can help them navigate through the maze that they might find themselves stuck in.
