Robin commented on The Book of Lifelong (L)earning

Dave
What about mentor cards (seeking to gain or be a mentor) -- set by geography and/or interest! I know from some of my online communities (stage32 is an example) that you need not be geographic neighbors to connect, assist, encourage or mentor! Job seekers your a Omentor card to seek a mentor, mentors use a +Mentor card to add themselves as mentors -- again in either a geographic or interest based listing of searchable cards.

Also, golden cards (like a Wonka golden ticket?) show extra-ordinary approaches to the whole job/ career search. Fantastic chances taken that paid off, life changing advice, a golden opportunity NOT missed, extraordinary stories! Challenges overcome, or a stroke of insight, inspiration or a twist that propelled someone into something great! Like that photoArtist working now for Coca Cola, that created his own job by seeing photography in a whole new way...
Wonder boy I think he's called.

Like any sale there has to be room for those that go off the charts or outside the lines!

Dave, do you have a team? If you are recruiting , I'd love to be part of it and figure out how I could help? I have access to computer programmers, artists, writers,.. I write a bit too. (smile)
Anyway, your idea is one of the more exciting ones put forward, and I believe the most user (student, job seeker) friendly.

Anyway, keep me in mind.
