Visitei helps you answer: How do I visit Google, Twitter, Oracle, or Facebook offices? What does a designer do on Instagram vs youtube? How are Companies using Python? How does the R/GA office look like? How did FutureBrand approach that case?
Questions about the ‘other side’ of the users and visitors. Questions about where stuff get build, created and imagined.
Visits are always a chance to ask professionals directly “After all, what do you do? How is it working with that? What are the pros and cons? How did you get here?”
It’s not a company presentation or company tour.
We want a space of exchange and participation, a common understanding through transparency, dialogue, and communication.
This is what makes Visited unique, incredible, and part of the Future of Education.
Founded in 2013, Visitei has already taken thousands of people – primarily students – to visit companies. Reducing the gap between Academia, Society, and the Market.

Visitei is about removing the guessing and romanticizing part of the equation, showing routines, professions, positions, titles, and putting you right in the action, potentially saving you 2, 3, 4 years. Not to mention saving you a lot of money.
Besides that, it has the potential to expose a whole new world of professionals possibilities, since many Companies develop, use, adapt, work with state of the art techniques, technologies, tools, skillset that leads to new roles and fields (e.g. Data Science, AI, Machine Learning, etc).
Visitei is about enhancing our decision-making process (especially in pre-college phase) to choose from hundreds of possible courses and careers:

“… I really liked the way Gustavo (Piqueira) answered the questions, in an unpretentious and extremely sincere way, without any frills! In short, the visit gave me more security to take the next steps as a designer;) ”
“I visited is to be able to see very closely the difference between what I hear in the classroom and what is practiced in the market.”
“I loved this tool that bridges the gap between people who would like to visit design offices, especially in my case, who still don’t work in the area and didn’t know an office. I recommend this tool to my friends and I still want to visit the other offices. ”
“… it was a time to relax and make good contacts. In my opinion, understanding how culture works (…) was the aspect I liked the most, understanding what moves the team, the lens you acquire by being immersed in that environment and being able to observe in loco what is only learned in theory was the most important learning I acquired during the visit. ”

Regardless of the size and number of employees, it is also an opportunity for you.
The opportunity to discover and approach new and future talents in a raw, more relaxed, and transparent way.
People want to work in places where they can be mentored and respected.
Where information is transparent and where there are purpose and diversity.
It’s an opportunity to create a good relationship with people, to listen to opinions, criticisms, and praise from people. And to reciprocate through learning, mentoring, and much more.
To create communities, to communicate your purpose, the company’s culture, and vision – beyond your advertisements and social media campaigns.
This is our path to the Future of Education.
