Why Did We Start Candorful?

Why are we passionate about Candorful? Because we are Candorful.

Pete, former US Army Captain, made his transition from the military via Business School. During the recruiting process, Pete, found himself facing unfamiliar challenges. Mastering the art of the job search and, in particular, having the confidence and comfort to connect with the interviewer was a skill that he had to practice and develop.

Later, after launching a successful finance career, Pete realized there was a lack of resources to directly support development of interview skills.

This led Pete to an idea. What if he could develop a coaching service focused on the piece of the job search where the rubber meets the road: The Interview. He also knew that the right place to initially focus this service was on transitioning military veterans. Being one himself, Pete knew the struggles this particular group faced when transitioning from the military to the civilian world.

The need to translate an esoteric set of military accomplishments and job descriptors into common language, combined with the reality that many service members have never interviewed before, make for an ideal opportunity to serve this community.

Pete reached out to Pat in 2016 with the idea, knowing Pat’s vast experience in career coaching, interview prep and mentoring, as Pete’s career counselor at Johnson. Pat also brought experience as a product development engineer and management consultant and therefore a history of process innovation to apply to Pete’s fantastic idea.

Pat and Pete put their heads together to conceptualize a platform where those transitioning from the military, or those in career transition, could meet experienced interview coaches for realistic interview experience and feedback. Together, their combined experiences and skill sets give their clients a competitive advantage in the transition and the job market.
