At CareerNerds, we have a high success rate in helping our Clients find new job opportunities within 12 months.

Such exceptional cases will be handled as described in the paragraph “Exceptional Cases” below.

Our priority is your success, and we will work diligently to support you throughout the process until you accept your great job offer.

  4. Set up their Zoom account
  5. Set up their Calendly account

  8. Complete 50 to 100 networking calls

If the client does not follow the above obligations, CareerNerds cannot guarantee the results that the client expects.

Location:

CareerNerds sessions are Zoom video calls to maximize value to the client.

Milestones and Schedule:

  1. Payment submitted (non-refundable)
  2. Onboarding call (generally within first week)
  3. Personal Branding phase (generally 3-8 weeks)
  4. Done-for-you Outreach to 500 contacts (generally 5-20 weeks)*

Payment:

The CareerNerds program is paid up-front by credit card or PayPal.

Exceptional Cases:

Postponement:

At any point the Client may request to postpone the Program. A postponement means all services will be paused for 1-6 months. The Client must provide email notice of their intention to postpone, including the desired duration.

Early Success:

Should the Client achieve their great job offer before CareerNerds outreach connects the client with 100 contacts, the client will be offered three options:

  • Continue done-for-you outreach to reach a total of 500 contacts.
  • Postpone the remaining outreach from 1 to 6 months.
  • Discontinue the Done-For-You outreach and all further CareerNerds services.

Extended Job Search:

The expectation is that the Client completes the CareerNerds program within 12 months.
If there are exceptional circumstances, this will be handled on a case by case basis. If the Client exceeds the 6 hours of on-demand 1-on-1 Network Coaching, they may be placed into group coaching sessions.

Indemnification:

The Client agrees to indemnify and hold CareerNerds (including the company, its owners, employees, and third-party contractors) harmless from any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses arising from or related to the services provided. CareerNerds shall not be held liable to the Client for any indirect, consequential, or special damages.

In the event that the Client incurs any damages, CareerNerds’ liability and the Client’s exclusive remedy shall be limited to the amount actually paid by the Client to CareerNerds for the services rendered.

The affected party shall promptly notify the other party in writing, providing details of the Force Majeure Event and its expected impact. The affected party shall make reasonable efforts to mitigate the effects and resume performance as soon as practicable.

The party seeking to rely on the Force Majeure Event shall bear the burden of proof. During the Force Majeure Event, both parties’ rights and obligations under the contract are suspended, and they shall make reasonable efforts to resume performance after the event has ended.
