In 2018, the average job search took about five months. That means five months of searching, applying, waiting to hear back, interviewing, and more waiting.

We’re here to change that.

The Job Search Academy teaches you a completely new job search strategy—one that focuses on the company, not the job. This all-inclusive course covers the entire job search process—from preparation to polishing your materials and applying to jobs, plus interviewing and more.

+ Submitting the same resume to hundreds of job openings

+ Including irrelevant information on your resume

+ Not following up

+ Not knowing what jobs to target

+ Having a personal pitch that is all over the place

+ Not optimizing your LinkedIn

+ Not utilizing your network the right way


Do any of these sound familiar? If so, watch the video below.

 

We get it. Looking for a new job is about as fun and easy to understand as putting together Ikea furniture.

It doesn’t have to be that complicated. In fact, it can actually be one of the most rewarding things you do.

This course will introduce you to a new way to job search. We’re going to help you be strategic and put you in control of the process—so that you don’t have to rely on crossed fingers, settle for a job you know isn’t right, or slum it at companies that don’t fit your lifestyle.

There’s no magic pixie dust here. Just a concrete action plan to take you from “WTF am I supposed to be doing with my life?” to “This is my career, and I own it.”
