Brian H.

“Competing with a lot of Ivy League and target school (candidates), I just felt like I was as good an applicant as they could have been searching for… I was getting multiple interviews every week… Having someone in your corner to support you and hold you accountable along the way is definitely a huge game changer… I was blown away by how many amazing opportunities came to me… My career path and trajectory is just completely different after working with Nick and I’m super excited about it.”

Taylor G.

Management Consulting

“The thing that stands out the most about working with Nick and (CareerXL) is how honest he is … He’s genuinely invested in my success … I don’t know what I would’ve done if I hadn’t met him … When I got my offer, one of the first people I wanted to tell was (Nick), because he’d been with me through the whole thing … (CareerXL was) definitely the best decision I made since going to UNC … I start my internship at Boston Consulting Group this summer, which is the one I was going after. I’m really excited about that.”

David N.

Investment Banking

“The individual attention and support made a world of difference … The content was really, really great … Mentorship overall was great … (Nick) didn’t let me get away with not shooting as high as I could go. I thank him for that push. He’s just been a great mentor. This is someone, Nick – a mentor, a coach – who’s been through this before and can show you the obvious things you need to be doing and lay the fundamentals for you … I interviewed for an investment banking internship and actually got the job.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Yep – we require a minimum 3.5 GPA for business majors and 3.2 for STEM majors. We know there are exceptional people that don’t meet this requirement, but they’re hard to find, and most high finance and management consulting firms won’t look at those students unless their GPA is up to par.

Sorry – we only work with students in the U.S. and Canada.

We’ll say this: If you’re accepted into our program and do everything we ask you to do, you WILL land a high-paying job.

No, and it’s extremely rare to receive sponsorship from a top firm, given the availability of students domestically.

 

The strength of your school only amplifies the outcome we can achieve. In fact, 30% of our students attend elite institutions. Think about it … if we’ve placed community college students into top firms, what do you think we can do for you?

No. We excel at pre-college internship placements. Some of our best students started with us in high school. The earlier you start, the better.
