We take a radically personal and empathetic approach to career discovery

An immersive career platform that puts the next generation of workers in control of their futures

Our Story

If you can see it, you can be it.

Somewhere between internships and sanitized job descriptions, there is a need for in-depth career stories that transport the next generation of workers into the mysterious world of work.

Wingspans takes an immersive approach to career discovery just short of experiencing the job yourself. It's an archive of authentic and heartfelt career stories—nothing scripted or sugar-coated. 

It has 700+ in-depth career stories, including 40+ mini-documentaries, that are integrated into over 10,000 pages on our site. 

Our goal is for the next generation of workers to expand their idea of what is possible. Know what a job is really like. And dream big without any fear of failure.
