Picky about who you learn from? We understand. Our mentors and alumni have shared their stories, and we encourage you to listen so you can be confident in your decision.

Thanks to the WeCareer network of mentors, I was able to receive opportunities that weren’t available on internet channels.

My WeCareer mentors never gave up on me. They encouraged me when I felt frustrated, helped polish my resumes regularly, summarized the company and insider information in bullet points so I could easily consume it when I received interview invites, provided insights on what questions to expect and how to tell the best stories during interviews.
