About CareerPal

CareerPal is an online platform where students and career changers can boost their chances of getting hired by receiving one-on-one coaching from professionals within the industry they wish to pursue. Our goal is to help our members achieve their dream career.

Why CareerPal?

There were 3.6 million job openings at the end of 2012. Most available jobs are never advertised. Most people either haven't mastered the skill of networking or don't network with the right people to achieve their career goal.

Therefore, we decided to build a community of experts who are open to helping each other address various career challenges. For a student or someone looking for a new career path, the opportunity to directly connect one-on-one with working professionals within any industry or organization is priceless. This connection helps address various career questions, such as, “How should I tailor my resume effectively?” or, “How should I practice for an interview?” or, “What are the steps I should take to earn an internal referral for an open position?”

We acknowledge that there are a number of professional platforms that help leverage your current network. But options are limited when you lack connections within your ideal organization. What makes CareerPal different from other platforms is the rare opportunity it provides to connect with a professional who has taken the very direction you wish to pursue. You can be confident that you’re going to receive solid advice from someone who’s “walked the walk.”

We want to improve the existing career networking model to something that is easy, efficient, and result driven. To accomplish this, we mesh the idea of a marketplace with professional social networking.
