Career Planning Platform Whomi Launched by Former Fortune 500 Executive


Whomi Career Growth Plans help people build better careers and
navigate uncertainty in a private, social and proactive network

MORRISVILLE, NC -- Oct. 20, 2022 -- Whomi today announced the availability of the free online Whomi Career Planning platform designed to help all people build better careers, one step at a time. The Whomi platform combines the power of social media, private advisor feedback and a proven career planning model into an integrated career development system. 


“Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to work with many smart, hard-working, well meaning professionals that struggled to achieve their full career potential,” said John Gordon, Founder and CEO of Whomi and former senior executive at IBM, GE, Bose and Lenovo. “With so many changes happening in the job market, I wanted to find a way to scale the lessons I had learned both personally and through mentoring to help more people than would ever be possible one-on-one.”


According to Gallup’s State of the Workplace 2022 report, work takes up an average of 81,396 hours in our lives, second only to sleeping. However, Gallup continues to report that globally only 21% of employees are engaged at work while 79% are either detached (60%) or miserable (19%).


The Whomi platform addresses this issue by helping people take charge of their career development. The Whomi growth plan has been proven through numerous mentoring and advising engagements and has yielded real results.


The Whomi Career Growth process has helped:

  •  New undergraduates and MBAs reach their goal career fields
  •  Mid-level managers go from losing a promotion to tripling their income
  •  Seasoned senior executives find an extra level of growth and career satisfaction


Whomi is a free platform that anyone can join at From getting a promotion to finding more meaning to switching industries entirely, Whomi is designed to help all working people achieve their personal and unique career goals. Free memberships include access to the 4 Step Career plan. Upgraded Career Growth Plans are also available starting at $10/month and include private Advisor Rooms to collaborate and share documents with your trusted career advisors.
