All about entrepreneurship, intrapreneurship, ideas, innovation, and small business. Takes Your Career Search To Another Level

Washington, DC-based is a platform that brings together job seekers and qualified service providers in an open self-service marketplace. Don’t be mistaken – it’s not a place where job seekers look for jobs, but to find job services such as resume writing and critique, writing cover letters, interview coaching, career consultation and the like.

CareerSquared founder Pranaya Ghimire says that job seekers looking for job-related services tend to get lost in a sea of unqualified service providers, and CareerSquared aims to fill this void by becoming the go-to website where job seekers can be rest assured that all services are provided by qualified and accredited industry veterans.

Facilitating An Exchange Between Job Seekers And Service Providers

Ghimire previously founded, a job site catered to entry level job seekers, and relaunched it last month as CareerSquared after receiving feedback from users asking for leads for qualified job service providers. The site then teamed up with some of the best service providers in the industry to provide job seekers with a wide variety of expertise and proven track records, and targets job seekers – at any level of their career ranging from recent college graduates to executives – who are looking to change or advance their careers.

“Whether your needs are unique or you are simply seeking standard services, we’ve got you covered,” says CareerSquared founder Pranaya Ghimire, who have worked in several IT and finance positions, “Job seekers can come to us at any stage of their job search process, and we will work with our service providers to help them get better prepared.”

Using CareerSquared is painless – in order to request a service, a job seeker simply fills out a short form indicating the desired service and the amount he or she is willing to pay. The request is posted to the CareerSquared maketplace where a service provider can reserve the request and begin work. Alternatively, a job seeker may approach and hire a service provider directly.

“We facilitate communication between job seekers and service providers to ensure all aspects of the job seeker’s request are addressed, says Pranaya, “We are confident of the services provided through our platform and offer a 100% money-back guarantee.”

“Recognize the right opportunity at the right time with a well planned execution.”

“Entrepreneurship provides you the freedom to do what you love doing the most,” Pranaya says, echoing the sentiments of many free-spirited entrepreneurs. “I believe that opportunities are always available; the challenge is to recognize the right opportunity at the right time with a well planned execution.”

“Over time, I have realized that entrepreneurship requires utmost determination and discipline to ride the ups and downs of the execution process.”

CareerSquared is fully bootstrapped, with seed funding from friends and family.
