Our Mission

Provide easy-to-use software and proactive services to Make Hiring Easier.

Since 2007 CareerPlug has worked to make hiring easier for over 10,000 growing companies in the U.S. and Canada. We designed our Hiring Software to be easy to use for any company owner, manager, or team member – not just HR Professionals.

Handcrafted in Austin, TX

We have grown and evolved as a company in the heart of Austin, and our core mission to make hiring easier for our clients has always stayed the same. We accomplish this through continuous innovation, dedicated service, and a healthy dose of hard work.

From daily feedback to quarterly innovation meetings, this is a company that relies on creativity and contribution from every team member. You can feel something special as you walk through our office and hear Client Success Managers working with clients and share our weekly and monthly goals – we care about our work, and even better, we love it.

“CareerPlug is a great example of what every company should be like. While many companies believe that employees work for them, CareerPlug is the only company I know that genuinely works for its employees. Leadership makes a point to develop everyone both personally and professionally. Not only have I seen myself grow tremendously, but I’ve also seen it with every new face that walks through our door. After 5 years, the team at CareerPlug has never ceased to amaze me. I wouldn’t have it any other way!”

– Walter McCone

Giving Back

CareerPlug is dedicated to Giving Back to our employees, our clients, and our community.  Our donation-matching program is one of our favorite employee benefits, with team members frequently donating to local and national causes. In 2014 our employees formed a Give Back Committee to further organize opportunities to give back to the community, including volunteer events with Hands on Housing, Safe Place, and drives for Capital of Texas Food Bank, Austin Pets Alive, and the Inside Books Project.

In our partnership with Foster Angels of Central Texas we support their Toys for Teens program, where we purchase holiday gifts for foster teens whose wish-lists would otherwise go unfulfilled. Not only has it been a rewarding Giving Back experience each year, but an excellent team bonding event as we split up and go shopping for computers, clothes, and cowboy boots!

In 2015, CareerPlug also worked closely with Foster Angels to begin the CareerPlug Scholars Award – a $10,000 scholarship awarded to a former foster youth to help them continue their education. We have subsequently provided new scholarships in 2016, 2017, and 2018. As we grow the program we hope not only to provide more scholarships but to add resources and mentoring opportunities to set former foster youth up for long-term success. We work hard to ensure Give Back doesn’t just mean a couple of words on our office wall, but a value that permeates our everyday.

Learn More About Careers

“I started out as an intern at CareerPlug during my last semester of college and immediately felt welcomed throughout the entire office. Upon graduating, I found myself in my first full-time opportunity working with an amazing company, doing something I enjoy, and progressing my career professionally and personally.” – Zach Garcia

Internship Program

CareerPlug’s interns are the true foundation of our company. Most of our current employees joined us as interns during our start-up days. Today, we have interns making an impact in all of our departments. CareerPlug interns make essential contributions throughout our entire company on a daily basis. From market research and managing social media, to resume sourcing and client interfacing, we are excited and determined to provide an enriching experience to all of our interns.

Client Support Internship

Client Support interns offer their own expertise in an effort to aid our Client Support team. These interns review technical challenges, assist with client troubleshooting, and promote clear communication regarding software development between our team and our clients. This internship is one of the most technical and gives our interns the chance to participate in our software from a critical perspective.

Client Success Internship

Our Client Success interns are instrumental to reinforcing our Client Success team. On any day, you can find these interns assisting with client account customizations, gathering data analytics, and, overall, helping our clients get the most out of our software. This position gives interns the opportunity to experience successful client relationships through systematic support and a detail-oriented mindset.

Implementation Internship

Implementation interns assist in setting up our new clients for success with the help of our implementation team. These interns master the ins and outs of our software through configuring client accounts, integration setups, and learning how to build repeatable systems. We believe that learning every part of our journey in preparing new clients for success is what characterizes this internship position as valuable.

Sales Internship

Sales interns take on a comprehensive marketing based approach while supporting our Sales team. These interns conduct market outreach, research on key competitors, and assist in building email campaigns and marketing content. We encourage our sales interns to work directly with their sales team members in order to gain invaluable knowledge about the sales and market development process.

Communications Internship

Communications interns work primarily with the Human Resources and Operations teams, but assist in multiple departments. They are what keeps the office running smoothly by planning company events, assisting with hiring and onboarding, and working on cross-team projects. This position is the most flexible and project-based of our all the interns. Communications interns get valuable exposure to the inner workings of the entire company, with a strong focus on internal communications and operations.

“Working at CareerPlug has provided me with the professional experience I was looking for in an internship and has raised my expectations as to what company culture and workplace environment can look like. Settling into my role as an intern was easy because of the helpful and experienced employees at CareerPlug, which allowed me to begin learning and improving right from the start. I am grateful to know that the knowledge and skills I have learned during my time at CareerPlug will stay with me for the rest of my professional career.” – Monica Machuca
