Along with Yvolve (e'valv)'s mission to help students navigate life after school without stress or depression, our relationships with students at various universities help us gain ear-to-the-ground insights to ensure our strategies respond to the market as future generations' (Gen Z) perceptions and values about life after school shift.
Professional development workshops
98% of students who've attended our interactive workshops said it "helped identify their strengths and interests and align current experiences to build brand credibility for future career pursuits."

We're passionate about helping students discover their interests and how that correlates to their post-graduate life, in an engaging, fun, and relatable way.
Student / alumNi SPOTLIGHT: Adeline GUO
Check out our short Q&A of our August Spotlight, Adeline Guo (NYU Stern School of Business - 2017; Business & Political Economy - Major, Math - Minor; Post-Grad Employer: PwC)
- What is one of your most memorable accomplishments to date? I’m super proud of ending my college experience on a high note. I juggled five courses (and had one of my best academic semesters), helped host the NYU Stern Undergraduate Women in Business Conference with an incredible team, and led a floor of freshmen as their Resident Advisor, all while finding time to hang with friends and family, which was crucial in helping me get recharged and motivated.
- Name something / someone / somewhere that inspires you. Random acts of kindness inspire the hell out of me. They’re small, everyday reminders to trust in the goodness of the people around me, even when news/media/my own opinions and biases urge me not to.
What are a few things you do for self-care in order to refuel to be your best self? I love to travel, but I know it can get expensive real quick, so sometimes I go on Google Street View in a foreign country, read a travel blog, or just take an unfamiliar route home. I also love to cook and try out new recipes. Even if the end result doesn’t taste quite as good as it smells (which is often…), cooking gets my creative juices going and I feel great about knowing exactly what went into my food.
What advice would you give to your future self? Stay fresh. Try to learn and then find ways to innovate in the workplace, no matter how large the firm or how rigid the structure. Try to inject a bit of novelty into every day, and don’t get stuck in the routine.
