Meet Jared Chung!

We celebrate Jared's hard work and achievements, particularly founding CareerVillage and the more than 4.5 million questions that have been answered for students by countless volunteers.

We support Jared and his team as they grow and manage CareerVillage.org particularly during these challenging time when students and young professionals are more anxious than ever about their careers.

We are inspired by his dedication to helping students, leveraging all his experience, lessons, and privilege to put towards an evergreen mission he is proud to dedicate his life to.


Jared Chung is the Executive Director and Founder of CareerVillage.org, the tech nonprofit providing personalized career advice to 3.5M online learners in 190 of the world's 195 countries. CareerVillage.org's crowdsourcing model has allowed it to provide career advice in a Q&A format with the help of 35,000 volunteers from all walks of life, including the world's most successful and innovative companies. For young people in low income communities, young women pursuing futures in STEM, young people of color, and others who are underrepresented in their dream career field, CareerVillage.org is the first stop for any career decision, big or small. Jared was inspired by his own career prep struggle as a young person to create CareerVillage.org together with his wife, Stanford Professor Jennifer Pan. Prior to founding CareerVillage.org, Jared was a consultant at McKinsey & Co.
