What students are saying
The Networking Basics Pack is by far the best career guide I've tried.
If I had to recommend a single resource to students, it would be what Paul has created at First Round.
The Networking Basics Pack is a masterclass on networking.

Meet the Founder
Welcome to First Round! I'm Paul, and on behalf of the First Round community, we're really excited you're here.
The highlight of my day is helping students unlock their career potential. I come from a small liberal arts college, Wheaton College. Through trial and error, I discovered the ins and outs of resume building, networking, and landing job offers. After 6 combined years in consulting with McKinsey and in private equity, I'm now an MBA student at Wharton and an MS Education student at Penn.
I've coached hundreds of students over the past decade and was featured alongside other dedicated coaches in the Wall Street Journal. I'm passionate about helping others navigate their career journeys, and am on a mission to build accessible resources that can empower all students to do so confidently.
I hope you'll join us!
