Your job search doesn’t have to be a solo sport… in fact, it shouldn’t be

Imagine connecting with an elite network of decision-makers who are Academy Grads just like you.

And, that’s exactly where CareerNerds comes in.

As a result of the CareerNerds process, in 2 months I had 60 high-impact networking calls, 30 interviews, and 4 offers. And the hiring decision was in my hands instead of the recruiters' hands."

What got you here won’t get you to the next level

Your work accomplishments don’t speak for themselves.

Instead, you need to tell your story effectively to communicate the extraordinary value you bring.

And because 80% of jobs are filled exclusively through referrals and hiring manager networks, it’s not just what you can do that matters.

It’s who you know…and who knows you.

For Service Academy Grads by Academy Grads

We do more than tell you how to do it. We work alongside you every step of the way with personalized 1:1 coaching so you can harness the power of your growing network to take control of the hiring decision and progress in your careers.

CareerNerds gave me confidence. Before CareerNerds, I didn’t know what was working well and what wasn’t. I found the more I talked with people, the more confidence I got telling my story."
