Description

This course will start with the most important topic, which is defining your career path and understanding what you're best at. By knowing what you're good at, you'll be able to more accurately position yourself towards jobs that are suited for you.

From there I share my tried and true strategies for getting what you want and how to present yourself in the strongest way possible. I also go into strategies to save you time from job positions that seem like opportunities but really are a waste of time.

And finally I include 2 bonus sections, the first is on how to negotiate the job offer and the second is about thinking about your marketable skills which will help to gain personal leverage in today's crazy job market.

Also I will be updating and adding more content over time through user-feedback, so you will have a wealth of knowledge at your hands as long as you are enrolled in this course.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who wants to take control of their job search and save a TREMENDOUS amount of time by learning from my mistakes should take this course

No nonsense approach to teaching

I've been doing web development and design for the last 14 years at various companies from big corporations to smaller agencies. My passion is in problem solving and mentoring other people to grow their skill sets. I'm currently working on promoting my book on a no-nonsense approach to landing a job.
