“The first step towards college is answering the question: ‘What do I want to be when I grow up?'” said, Jose Mallabo, co-founder and chief executive officer of Vireo Labs. “No one knows better how to help answer that question than the school counselors who work with students every day. We’re excited to have them be part of the team and know C’reer will be a much better product and platform with their input.”
