A new perspective on the job hunt that can make all the difference.


  • Have a desire to get a great job
  • Be willing to look at life from a new perspective.
  • Want to make a unique impact in the world.


You are unique. You have unique talents and abilities. You see problems from a unique perspective, and you need a job that is as unique as you are.

Maybe you know what that job is... and maybe you don't. Either way you've come to the right place.

Through this course you will learn how to:

  • Choose a job that matches your interests

  • Comfortably network your way into the company you want to work for

  • Write a compelling resume to get you in the front door

  • Get past the resume and show them your unique attributes

  • Guide the interview to play to your strengths

Your education taught you a lot of skills, but it probably did not teach you how to get a job. Getting a job takes some know-how. It's not hard. It's just that we aren't properly taught how to take that next step after we graduate from school. Those who apply the principles discussed here have a world of opportunity open to them.

I am an engineer, and most of the examples I use are geared towards engineering. However, these principles apply to all fields, and the perspective you'll gain from this course can significantly shape your future.

This Course Includes:

  • Over 2 hours of awesome content

  • 12 Assignments that will change your perspective on the job hunt

  • Example work to get you going in the right direction

This course is no joke. If you're serious about getting your dream job, this is the place to start.

Who this course is for:

  • High school or college seniors looking to enter the work force
  • Working professionals looking to move to a more meaningful position
  • Students interested in valuable internship opportunities
  • Those who just need a change of pace

As a student, my aerodynamics course was over my head.

It seemed to be full of vague concepts I had to memorize to pass the test. How could I ever be an aerospace engineer if I couldn't master aerodynamics?

I ended up taking ANOTHER aerodynamics course, and finally teaching a course before it really clicked. And when it did, the physics was beautiful.

Since then I've put together tons of videos about aerodynamics and aircraft that focus on the principles. Once you master the principles, aerospace engineering is much clearer.

Like the Wright Brothers said, "The best dividends on the labor invested have invariably come from seeking more knowledge rather than more power."

I've designed aircraft for Facebook, Scaled Composites, AeroVironment, and others. But what I love most is teaching others the principles so they can leave their mark in aerospace.
