Two girls who live in the area of Rotterdam and The Hague in The Netherlands, who met in their first week of university and are now just stepping into the wide working world. Through time we have actively read multiple blogs about beauty, fashion, and lifestyle. Little did we know that at the end of studies we would share the same frustration regarding these blogs. Although we still love to read about the trendiest handbags and magical wrinkle creams, we were also missing content that is career and lifestyle design related, but in a fun and airy way. We decided to combine this shared frustration with our passion to share everything we learn in life. Therefore, CAREERLIONS.COM was born.

Our MISSION STATEMENT: We seek to celebrate, share, enjoy and inform about the career lion lifestyle, focussing on professionals continuously engineering their lives in order to flourish.

Our VISION: Becoming a worldclass information hub for people to start their journey to continuous improvement.

So make yourself a cup of tea and grab a notebook. Enjoy our adventures and discoveries as "newbie" career girls. We will share our new adventures every Wednesday.
