The Job Search

Like night vision goggles for your job search

Let's face it: job hunting sucks. After about the twentieth time being rejected for yet another position because you don't have the experience that you'll only get if someone gives you a job that you can't get without having experience...we don't blame you if you're ready to thrown in the towel—or roll it into a tube and whip something with it.

But there are ways to make job hunting suck less without doing violent things with towels. It all starts with:

  • Figuring out what you actually want to do and what you're qualified to do, so you can apply for positions that are really a good fit.
  • Knowing where and how to look for jobs.

And most importantly,

  • Building a network that connects you to the people who are giving out jobs.

This course teaches you how to do all that stuff so you can save your towels for something more appropriate...like drying stuff.
