Organization Benefits and Culture

Supportive Culture

We recruit hard-working, challenge-seeking staff who love study abroad and have their own experiences to share. The pace of work is fast and the details exacting, but the culture is supportive. Need help? Ask a colleague, your manager…or even our President. Her door is always open.

Benefits for Work-Life Balance

A reduced-hours workweek (30 hours perweek). 8 weeks of paid Parental Leave. 5 weeks of Paid Time Off to start. Flexible work arrangements. And absolutely no pressure from management to check email after hours. When we say we support work-life balance, we mean it.

Excellent Management

People don’t leave companies, they leave managers. So we support our management team with ongoing professional development that helps them meet our high expectations—that managers listen openly, communicate directly, and empower staff to problem-solve and grow.

World Impact

We are an eco-certified organization with ongoing initiatives to diversify staff, promote sustainability, and give back to local communities. Want to work for a company that cares about the world? Look no further.

A CET Career Path

We do everything we can to retain high-performing staff members. And as a fast-growing company, we frequently offer opportunities that allow us to do just that. New programs, initiatives, and positions mean that there are plenty of ways for staff to develop professionally…even across the globe. In fact, many CET staff members have launched their careers in overseas positions and advanced to US-based positions, or vice versa. Other staff have stayed in one location but switched teams as their interests changed. If staff longevity is a test of company success, we think we’ve passed with flying colors.
