Our Founders

Bill Glading

Born and raised in Bethesda, MD, Bill attended The University of Virginia and graduated in 2003 with a BA in Economics. Bill was a two-sport (Lacrosse, Basketball) athlete at The University of Virginia. Bill spent four years working as a commercial insurance broker in Chicago and Washington DC. Seeing a need for, and value in, a more video focused career exploration tool, Bill partnered with Neilye Garrity to create CandidCareer.com. The two hit the streets (originally with a small Flip camera) to find out what people do professionally and their reasons for doing it. What ensued was an outpouring of valuable career information and heartfelt advice, which was all captured on camera. Along with his many other duties, Bill remains active in Candid Career filming.

In addition to running Candid Career, Bill remains involved in his other two passions, music and sports. Musically, Bill has co-written songs on three albums for a local DC musician. Athletically, Bill won a NCAA National Championship at The University of Virginia, played professional lacrosse in the MLL for five years, and now coaches youth lacrosse.

Neilye Garrity

Born and raised in Lancaster, PA, Neilye attended The Pennsylvania State University and graduated in 2004 with a degree in Information Sciences and Technology. While attending Penn State she lettered for four years in field hockey. Neilye worked as an Information Technology Consultant for IBM in the Washington DC area from 2004 to 2010. Neilye's knowledge of designing websites and her passion for education made the decision to start CandidCareer.com easy. Neilye partnered with Bill to achieve their mission of providing a more enjoyable and efficient career website to assist young adults in answering one of the most difficult questions, “What do I do with my life?”

In addition to running Candid Career, Neilye coaches youth field hockey and is an active tri-athlete. Neilye helped lead her field hockey team at Penn State to a NCAA National Runner-up title in 2002 and served as a captain of her team in 2003. Neilye completed the Coeur d'Alene, Idaho Ironman in 2010.
