Edge Factor uses the power of cinematic storytelling to take students and job-seekers on a journey from "I have no idea what I want to do with my life!" all the way to, “I have browsed the opportunities, made informed decisions, and launched a local training and career pathway.” We have criss-crossed North America to produce thousands of videos and interactive activities that highlight every industry and we deliver these multimedia tools through the Edge Factor platform.
Partnering with industry and educational leaders, Edge Factor has filmed and published career exploration media featuring Louisiana based companies. Today, we are proud to share free access to this media (and much more!) on an all-new landing page called, Louisiana has the Edge! This is a family-friendly space, where students, parents, and job-seekers become inspired to launch their own training and career pathways. It features real life stories of people pushing back the edge of what’s possible and using their minds, hands, and technology to build the future and impact lives. With inspirational films, Career Profile videos, Virtual Workplace Experiences, and more, this landing page highlights careers, tools and equipment, soft skills, and STEAM topics that come alive in Louisiana companies. To make connections and foster relationships between local schools, families, and companies, this page also includes Profiles with information and links to Louisiana organizations and opportunities.
The new Louisiana has the Edge page provides a multimedia experience for everyone in Louisiana. The page features walk and talk tours at companies such as CLECO, Calcesieu Parish Sheriff’s Office and National Networks. Job-seekers can peruse the landing page and explore career profile videos where students can discover what ‘a day in the life’ looks like in specific Louisiana careers.
