Our goal is to help Career Services Office (CSO) staff win with students, increase relationships with employers, and impress management.


We solve modern-day issues facing our university partners, such as how to deal with the international student population, and how to get industry-based resources into the hands of students seeking internships and jobs in competitive job markets. Hint: videos and smartphones, not Room 85 in the basement of Hogwarts Hall. 

Careerly advisors have the jobs students want. We have 28 incredible industry coaches - all handpicked and highly vetted - who work or worked at companies where students themselves want to work or find an internship at.



The Careerly Story

In the Summer of 2012, Ms. Hira Fernando quit her last corporate role, Co-Lead Analyst ar Industry Research giant Gartner Inc. covering Sustainability and Talent. She had a strong hunch about where she could make a meaningful contribution in this world but not much of a plan. 

In Fall 2013 Hira was invited to coach MBA students at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business. It was a small 10-hours-a-week contract... which doubled, which then led to a referral to GU's School of Foreign Service... which then led to a referral to Johns Hopkins University and so it went. Until Hira became Careerly.

Today Careerly has 28+ industry coaches and a single mission: to help students and universities alike meet their common goal of 100% employment. If we can help move the needle one percentage point we have done our job. If 50 students get a job because we coached them, working just as hard as we ourselves did when we went through the process, we have done our job. If a few Career Services Offices get 25% more budget next year because we helped them increase appointment volume, we have done our job. 

We have already accomplished more than these bars in each consecutive year 2013 - 2018. We hope to continue to do even better in the future for our university partners.

"Hira and her team have both strong coaching skills and phenomenal industry expertise. From an employer perspective, it's hard to see how candidates could be adequately prepared to get through our recruiting process - whether in IBD, brokerage, or Asset Management - without this combination." 

Michael Salsbury, former Head of EMEA Merrill Lynch International.
