Job Search Course + Coaching

Find and land a job you’ll love

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, 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.  
  • You want to be more intentional about what you do next. Now that you’re advancing in your career, you want to learn from what has (and hasn’t) worked for you in the past to ensure your next role really fits your priorities. 
  • You know you need to network more, but you’re not quite sure how to go about it. 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 course will give you the structure and tools you need to find and land a job you love. And with the option to add 1:1 coaching sessions, you can get targeted feedback and support in the areas you need most. 

I signed up for this course because I was striking out in the hyper-competitive space for the jobs I wanted. The course provided several wake up calls for me, including that what I thought was active job searching was actually “passive” job searching. As I changed my practices for engaging recruiters based on the guidance in the course, my results started changing too: I went from no interviews lined up to three in one week. Six weeks after starting the course, I landed an amazing remote data job for a national education non-profit. As a result of this course, I feel like I had a clear map with concise resources and tips to guide me through an unfamiliar and challenging time.”

Program overview

Are you ready to ramp up your job search or preparing to launch a search in the coming months? Do you want access to all of our proven content, with the option to add coaching sessions for more targeted support?

Our Job Search course is the solution. 

Why a course?

We originally ran Job Search Bootcamp as a group program, and we have now distilled all the content we covered in that program into this course to allow social impact job seekers to access our tools and resources whenever they need them. 

The course includes all of our proven 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!).

And if you have questions or need extra support along the way, you can add 1:1 coaching sessions either when you purchase the course or at any point later on to get dedicated time with our coaching team to focus on your biggest questions and accelerate your progress. 

What’s included

The program includes six modules aligned to the key topics that are most important in a successful job search:

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 may be 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!

Frequently asked questions

How do I add 1:1 coaching sessions?

You will have the option to add either one or three 1:1 coaching sessions upon check out. If you’d like to add additional coaching sessions in the future, you’ll receive the details on how to do that after signing up.

How is this different from your other programs?

There are a few important things to keep in mind when joining this course:

  • This is a self-paced, online program: this means you’ll complete the work on your own schedule, and that you can work through it as quickly or slowly as you’d like. This program gives you flexibility and convenience, while still providing the great tools and resources that have our programs so popular!
  • You’ll want to seek out additional accountability and feedback: job searching can be hard, and accountability is an important success factor. There are several activities in the course that we suggest you complete with a partner, and you’ll get the most from this experience if you gather and incorporate feedback from others. Accountability partners can be friends, colleagues, or family members; someone else who is currently job searching or has recently been through the process can make an especially helpful partner. We encourage you to reach out within our client community to find others who are also participating in this program to partner with.

How much time will I need to work on this?

Ultimately how much time you spend on the course will depend on how quickly you want to move, and how deeply you want to dive into the materials and resources. That said, to get the most from this material, a good ballpark is to plan to spend 3-4 hours on each module, including reading and watching materials and completing assignments. This is a general guideline, as some people choose to spend more time with the materials, or to come back to them and refine them after moving through later modules of the course.

How long will it take me to complete the course?

That’s up to you! One of the biggest benefits of the course is that you can complete it on your own pace and schedule. The course is set up in a six module framework and we suggest completing one module per week, however you are welcome to work through the program on a timeline that works for you. We do recommend doing some work each week to ensure you continue your momentum and progress. 

What is the refund policy?

Because you receive instant lifetime access to all course materials upon signing up, there are no refunds available for this program. Please ensure you thoroughly review the information on this page prior to signing up, and contact us with any questions you have that aren’t addressed here.
