Virtual before it was a thing
Careerly was founded in 2013 and bootstrapped its way to a global online career platform in 2017. We are forward-thinking, creative, and client-student-centric.
The tech-supported platform is modern and efficient while being powered by humans, not AI or chatbots. We support you by being present and providing both a caring space and competent career prep.
There are thousands of individual career advisors, online coaching platforms, and mentor matching programs. Do your research. We recommend you look at industry experience, service delivery method, and to what extent you, the job candidate, is the client (versus the employer or other parties), Our approach:
We are not saying we've got the best approach for everyone. But what we do, we do very well, we've been remarkably consistent, and our results are solid. See for yourself!
We are Bilingual English-Mandarin
In keeping with the demands of the modern workforce (global mindset, fluency in languages) we offer Careerly in other languages, starting with Mandarin Chinese.
We use our own frameworks.
We coach based on our experience which we've distilled into Careerly frameworks, templates, and guides. When we recommend other resources we carefully review and vet them.
Everyone is paid the same rate.
Our coaches have a day job. When they are on our platform they are focused on coaching you, not on building a side hustle and piddling around with pricing and ratings.

Careerly is Community

If you find school tough, you are not alone! Business School? Law School? Grad School writ large? All are daunting. Or you're in College? Even more intense! We interact with sufficient numbers of university ecosystems to see increasing levels of anxiety and depression around job prospects, debt, and financial security. Sometimes it starts as early as high school. So, we have anxious parents in the mix too worried about their children's' future.
After so many years at this, we firmly believe connection - and community - is half the solution to the problem. Especially in light of the events of 2020 and the unprecedented uncertainty caused by COVID19 and a global health crisis.
You are not alone.
