Every life situation is unique, but we can admit it- the rite of passage of transitioning from the hallowed halls of academia to the weird world of work- that can be tough.  We’re here to demystify the job-search process (and help course-correct if you feel like you’ve landed the wrong job, or spent years studying the wrong thing).  You’re not alone.

What to Expect

  • Personalized coaching sessions (usually an hour in length every other week or so, from the comfort of wherever you can get a wifi connection or speak on a phone, so yes, you can be at Starbucks or in your pajamas).
  • A concentrated, in-depth Discovery process (figure out what you want in your work, life, bank account, etc.- and why it all matters)
  • Assessments (what are your strengths? Interests? Personality type? Aptitudes?  Saboteurs?  Working styles?)
  • Identifying + researching (discover companies and industries that are compatible to the person you’ve learned you are through your Discovery and assessments)
  • Strategizing (create a plan to search for the right role and company culture in a way that’s right for your industry and your own personal style)
  • Customized independent experiences and networking (yes, that’s a way better way of calling it homework.  Your coach has hundreds of tools, experiences and exercises to draw from and assign to you at the just-right moment.  Like the rest of your life, expect to get out of these experiences and assignments what you put into them.  Trust us that the work you’ll do in-between your 1:1 sessions with your coach will be helpful and enriching and fun [even networking can be fun, or at least not a hideous undertaking]).
  • Feedback on execution (review of successes, opportunities, progress)
  • Role-playing important discussions (interviews, compensation negotiations, parental low-downs, etc.)
  • Assistance with a resume that reflects your own education, experience, story and personal brand (we have additional resume services for those who need help from soup to nuts in this area)
  • Option to pre-schedule a follow-up meeting with your coach to do intensive interview prep when the time comes 
  • A Happy Spectacular Work + Life Plan that’s customized for your current and future goals and needs
  • Access to invitation-only Happy Hours in select cities (like Chicago, San Francisco, New York, Duluth, etc.)

If this sounds right for you, drop us a line and we’ll talk about what coaching will look like for you.

“Quick-fix” help is available by the hour and typically takes one to three hours of time. These are most popular with people who have already completed a Happy Spectacular program and need a booster or more specified assistance. They can also be helpful for someone who already knows what direction they want to go in, but might need the expertise to figure out exactly how to pave their path.
