How is the Bootcamp different from individual coaching, and how do I know what’s right for me?

Bootcamp covers similar content and gives you access to the same templates and materials as our Individual Coaching Program. However, there are a few important differences between this program and individual coaching:

  1. Bootcamp moves more quickly and is not as tailored: Bootcamp is a six week program, and we move through a new topic every week. It’s purposefully designed to cover all the content you need for a successful job search in a short timeframe to give your search a jumpstart. Because of the fast pace of the program, we can’t alter the curriculum specifically to individual needs. That said, a significant portion of our meetings is devoted to group discussion and Q&A when you can raise the specific questions you have, and you’ll also be getting individualized feedback during the pair activities we do in sessions and from your accountability partner outside of sessions. We also have a shared Facebook group where you can ask questions and get feedback from your coaches and others in the group.  
  2. Bootcamp helps you tap experience and insights from a broader group: One of the unique benefits of group coaching is the learning, support, and accountability you get from other group members. While you may not have encountered a particular situation before, it’s almost guaranteed that someone else in the group has, and can share their experience and insights with you. The group discussions we have are incredibly rich and are often cited by participants as one of the biggest benefits of the program.
  3. Bootcamp helps you build a community of other job seekers: While individual coaching is more tailored to your situation, it’s just you and your coach. Through joining the Bootcamp, you’ll meet a group of peers who will support you in your search even after the program ends. Job searching can be a lonely and isolating process – but it doesn’t have to be! Joining the Bootcamp is an incredible way to boost your energy and confidence through meeting others who are going through the same process. As you go through the ups and downs of the search, you’ll know that you have a team of like-minded colleagues to support you, no matter what.

If you like the idea of the group model and would also like some extra 1:1 support, we also offer the Bootcamp Plus option, which combines the group program with three additional individual coaching sessions that you can use during or after the program. You’ll have the chance to opt-in for this when you register for the Bootcamp. 

If you would prefer not to work in a group model or have circumstances that you feel require more tailored support, you may want to instead consider our three month individual coaching program.
