About us

CareerHacker was set up to provide helpful information, resources and guidance for young people making important decisions about their first steps into the professional world. Here, you'll find quizzes to help you decide what kind of qualification might be the best route into your dream career; you'll find videos to help you understand what different career paths actually involve; and you'll find plenty of handy tips, articles and blog posts on personal development, to improve your employability and get you ready for the workplace.

CareerHacker is powered by WhiteHat, the tech startup democratising access to the best careers by matching non-grad talent with apprenticeship opportunities at some of the UK's most exciting companies. As a result, you'll find lots of information about apprenticeships on this site - we've got a lot of experience to share! You'll also find entry level apprenticeship roles that we are currently hiring for, and that you are eligible to apply for today. We fully recognise that an apprenticeship won't be the right path for everyone who comes here looking for guidance, and that's why we have handy resource pages for alternative routes, to point you in the direction of some other organisations that can help you on your way.

Welcome to CareerHacker, we hope you find it useful as you start this exciting process of launching your career. If you have any feedback about the resources you find here, or things that you think we should add that would be helpful, please do just let us know. We'd love to hear from you.

Happy hacking!
