Whether you’re exploring career paths or ready to land your next role, we’ve got you covered.
Talent is everywhere. Opportunity is not. Candoor’s all-in-one recruiting platform leverages humans and technology to help you explore, break into and thrive in your dream job.
We envision a world where diverse talent is no longer “underrepresented.” Candoor was founded to help Black, Latinx and Indigenous professionals break into historically non-diverse industries and realize their potential.
Not sure where to start or what’s next for your career? Explore career paths by connecting with Advisors from a variety of industries, companies and roles. You name it, they’ve done it — and you can do it too.
Unlike traditional mentor matching programs, we believe that the best relationships form organically. We empower you to choose your own Advisors based on your unique goals and needs and join a community of like-minded Advisees accelerating their careers.
What if you could know why your resume wasn't getting past the system or how much you should really be getting paid? Get the inside scoop from on-the-job professionals who are eager to share their insights and advice with you — tailored to your specific situation.
Connect with a friendly career Advisor in 4 easy steps:
“As a first generation student, I had no one to help guide my next career steps. Immediately, I connected with accomplished female advisors who helped narrow the roles I applied to. Once I got an interview, I spoke with an Advisor from that same company, who helped me understand what to expect and how to pitch myself. As a result, I got a job offer at Deloitte!”
“One of my Advisors said: ‘We’re going to get you started so you can get an internship at Google.’ I had never heard those words before and never thought they were possible. Yet he immediately introduced me to others and recommended the best book to prepare. I now feel like I have an understanding of how to get there.”
“The best part was being able to tap into the minds of people I wouldn't have access to otherwise - like a PM at Apple or a VC from General Catalyst. While my school has alumni in finance, we have very few in tech and entrepreneurship… there’s so much to learn from people who have already taken these paths.”
“I came into this not knowing how to network and I got more and more comfortable with every conversation. It was like a trial run where I could ask questions and not feel afraid of being judged.”

Finally, we are looking for Advisees who have reflected on their career goals (even if still undecided!) and how Candoor can best help. If that sounds like you, sign up for our interest form and we'll be in touch!
You do not! While we are primarily focused on serving Black, Latinx and Indigenous college students and professionals with <6 years of full-time work experience, Advisees of all underserved backgrounds are welcome to apply.
Given our long Advisee waitlist, you can expect to hear back within 1 month of submitting your application. If you still haven’t heard back after that time, feel free to email us for a status update.
Definitely! While Candoor excels at facilitating unlikely professional connections through 30-minute conversations, you’re more than welcome (and encouraged!) to stay in touch on a longer-term basis with Advisors.
