About This Bootcamp

We've all been told that if we follow our passions, we'll never work a day in our life. Unfortunately, that's only one piece of the equation, so many people spend years of their life chasing after something that can never be obtained while feeling like a failure along the way. Even worse, some people remain in jobs they hate far longer than they should because they just don't know how to make their next move. Career indecision is real, and it's something that too many people suffer through, allowing "paralysis by analysis" to keep them from making any decision at all.

Luckily, you don't need to know every move of your career to start - just your best next move. In this course, you’ll look to your past, present, and future to identify your typical patterns of behavior, see what actually makes you happy and unhappy at work, and key in on what you’re missing (if anything) to land your dream job. You'll learn how to align your strengths, interests, and motivators to various roles, industries, and company cultures perfect for you. We'll put it all together and create your very own Career Compass, which will act as your guide to figuring out what move to make next in your career.

Life is too short to hate your job - start treating your career like the adventure it is.
