Jump start your job search, when it works for you
Have you hit a wall with your social impact job search? Are you ready to start looking for a new job, but not even sure where to start?
You’re not alone.
Let’s face it, job searching can be a frustrating and confusing process, especially when you’re looking for mission-driven work. Do any of these sound familiar?
- You want to be strategic with your job search, but you’re not sure how to maximize your time and energy. Every time you sit down to do some work, you feel paralyzed, like you’re not sure where to start or what to do first.
- Now that you’re advancing in your career, you want to be more intentional about the roles you pursue. You get that that applying to jobs online isn’t that effective, but you’re not sure how to find opportunities that you can get excited about (and that can pay the bills!).
- You’re struggling with telling your story, especially when your career path is a little…non-linear. You know you have lots of great skills and value to bring to an organization, but you’re not sure how to communicate them in an effective way.
- It seems like the “best practices” for things like resumes, cover letters, and LinkedIn are changing all the time, and it’s virtually impossible to keep up. You know you need to be up on the latest trends, but Googling can only get you so far.
So you’re tired of feeling stuck, and putting in the time and work but not seeing results. You know something needs to change, but what?
Our Job Search Bootcamp course will give you the structure and tools you need to find and land a job you love.
Are you ready to ramp up your job search or preparing to launch a search in the coming months? Do you want to work through all the great content included in our live Job Search Bootcamp program, on your own time? Our Job Search Bootcamp course is the solution.
Why a course?
We originally designed Job Search Bootcamp as a live group program, and we have been running it several times per year since 2016. It’s been a great success, however we’ve found that while the fast-paced format and live weekly meetings work well for many participants, they are not accessible to everyone. So we created a self-paced version of the program that you can complete when it works for you.
If you want to get started before our next live group begins, can’t attend meetings during the day, or want to work through the course material at your own pace, the Job Search Bootcamp course is for you!
This course includes all of our job search content, including six video modules and 40+ tools, templates, and guides. You can complete it at your own pace and on your own schedule and there’s no time limit, so you’ll have access to materials for as long as you need them (even for your future job searches!).
The program includes six modules aligned to the key topics we cover in our work:
1Create Your Strategy
Developing your job search strategy and goals
2Tell Your Story
Identifying your strengths and career story
3Activate Your Network
Networking strategy and tools
4Update Your Toolkit
Resumes, cover letters, and LinkedIn profiles
5Nail the Interview
Interview strategy, practice, and feedback
6Negotiate the Offer
Negotiation strategy and best practices
Each module includes:
- Pre-reading and reflection questions, to prepare you for the topic we’ll be covering
- A video overview in each module with our top advice on each of these important job search topics
- Proprietary tools to help you prepare for and execute your search, from exercises that will help you establish your priorities and develop your career story to tactical tools to help you update your resume and LinkedIn profile
- Homework to cement your knowledge, help you gather feedback, and keep you accountable to implementing what you’ve learned
In addition to the comprehensive set of resources available through the course, you’ll also receive:
- Access to our private Careers for Social Impact online client community of hundreds of other social impact professionals; this is a great place to build your network, find accountability partners, and get feedback on your strategy and tools
- The option to add 1:1 coaching sessions with our team of expert career coaches, to get targeted feedback and support in the areas you need most
- Access to job leads, events, and other valuable information we share only with our client network
- Continued access to course materials, even after completing the program; materials are updated several times each year with new details and best practices
Who it’s for
This program isn’t for everyone. It’s probably a great fit for you if:
- You want to do work that has a positive social impact, in the private, public, or nonprofit sectors.
- You’re motivated and committed to working through the course content on your own time. We also encourage you to find an accountability partner to work with as you complete the course – more on that below.
- You’re open to trying new things and connecting with others to get results. Even though this is a self-study program, you’ll have to get out from behind your computer to be successful in your job search!
