Mission & Ethics

Students First, Profit Second.

Our mission is to help students - and be an advocate for students in the process of finding employment - no matter where they are located, what school or university they are at, or what their background is. Our Ethics Code is an integral part of our business model, one of two basic underpinnings of Careerly Networks; the first being a relentless industry focus, i.e. structured career support by and access to the people that have the jobs students want.

Students

We want to ensure that you have access to the most timely and relevant career information for your specific vertical, from the people currently employed in those verticals. Access is everything! Real opportunities - jobs, internships, part-time work, entrepreneurial projects - are almost always found through networks. We believe career education and jobs skills training sit squarely within education. Education is the basis for a bright future whether you are a person, or an entire country. Therefore we take our work very seriously, and recognize our responsibility to students and parents.

Universities

We want to thank our past and current University partners for giving us the tremendous opportunity to work with your students - where would we be without you? We believe we can scale and do a much better job on behalf of student communities if we continue to add these partnerships, and collaborate on a common goal. Careerly's new platform has made made it extremely easy for Universities to leverage us leading to increased student satisfaction, higher placement rates, happy alumni, and eventually more revenue. Students (and/or their parents) pay close to half a million dollars for a college degree. MBAs and Masters students pay, on average, an additional $150,000. Think of it this way, if a student spent even 0.5% of what they already paid in tuition to go to a reputable and cost-effective resource like Careerly… now that would be ethical and good for business.

Employers

We value you, ultimately, as the Big Prize. Our goal is not to charge you and sell our student data to you. Rather we invite you to join Careerly Networks for FREE and be a part of our community. The students want you. We want you, the endgame for everyone is you. That is why our platform is FREE for you. You can access our students and engage with them from anywhere in the world. If you have a job posting, internship, special project or an associate programs, Careerly will work with you to find suitable candidates. Remember, we are not a searchable database of millions of unknown faces; we know our students, because we coach them


We are not the Uber of career coaching. Yes, our platform connects a supply of industry people to a pipeline of students for advice and coaching, and it's a strong global and virtual tech platform. However, our platform is not an open market; there is quality control on all aspects, including who exactly is coaching and interacting with students on the platform. Our customers are students. That means we have both a special privilege, and a serious ethical responsibility, in working with them. We strongly support paid work. Employers, if you hire from our platform, we ask that you compensate appropriately for internships, part-time work, and special projects. If you are a small non-profit and truly cannot afford to pay, please find a sponsor organization that can. Failing that, Careerly will pick up the tab. No unpaid work.
