What it is

This is a six-week group program focused on accountability and practice, because we know that these are ultimately the most important elements to your success. 

During the program you’ll get constructive, real-time feedback from our coaches and a cohort of fellow social impact professionals, to help you make tangible progress and stay accountable to your goals. 

You’ll also get access to our full set of proprietary job search tools and exercises via our online course, as well as a private discussion space to ask your questions and connect with your coaches and other group members outside of our weekly calls. 

Through this combination of group coaching, career content, and community, we’ll help you develop a structured and intentional approach to your career transition.

Who it’s for

This program is 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 able to dedicate at least three hours per week to work on your career transition and complete exercises during the program 
  • You’re ready to dive in and do the work, both during our weekly meetings and on your own time,  to get the most from this experience
  • You have some ideas about the type of work you’re interested in pursuing next; it’s ok if you’re not 100% sure about your direction or open to a few different paths 
  • You’re feeling a little stuck about how to move forward with your career next steps, and you know you need structure and accountability to take action
  • You have a growth mindset and you’re open to coaching and new ideas about how to share your story and get results

  • Six weekly group calls to hone in on key concepts you need to know, practice and get feedback in small groups, and ask your questions
  • Three months of access to our extensive library of content and videos via our Job Search Bootcamp online course; the foundation of the program will be the robust content in the course, including 40+ tools, templates, and videos 
  • A private Slack discussion space, where you’ll connect with other participants and your coaches, share ideas and resources, and get answers to your questions outside of meetings

Why it works

Our programs are designed to help you get momentum and make progress toward  what’s next in your career.

We’ll help you get more clarity and confidence and check off those tasks you’ve been putting off, whether it’s mapping out your plan, dusting off the LinkedIn profile you haven’t updated in years, or finally setting up those networking meetings you’ve been thinking about. 

During our meetings, we’ll hone in on topics where we know people tend to need the most support and practice: creating a targeted search strategy, telling a clear and compelling story in networking conversations and interviews, and refining materials. 

This program will give you the structure, tools and motivation you need to take action on your career goals. And the feedback, support and encouragement you’ll get from your coaches and cohort members will help you navigate the inevitable highs and lows of the career transition process. 

Here are just a few examples of what clients have shared after finishing our Career Refresh program:  

The coursework was so specific and grounding, the breakout sessions had powerful insights, and the handouts were incredibly detailed, helpful, and actionable. After going through the program, I feel empowered to describe my strengths and my passion in a way that I never have before. -Sara W.

This is a powerful, well-designed program that maximizes resources and time and provides a supportive community to achieve your goals. I was impressed by the content design, the caliber of instruction, and the pacing to move through strategic material. Wherever you are in your career journey, there is something for you in this program. – Pam J

The job search process, especially if pivoting careers, can be incredibly lonely. In addition to providing a pathway to move forward and very helpful tools, this program provides a community of people ready to help, challenge, affirm, and uplift. This has been invaluable for me as I navigate this part of my career journey. – Jackie B.
