Career & Financial Coaching

Job Search Accelerator

Tuesday, February 26 | 7-9 PM | 6 weeks | Limited to 8 (Save My Seat)

This 6 week unique coaching cohort is based on the various tech accelerators in town. Each weekly session will include: presentations from subject matter experts (based on the needs of the group), time in the session to apply what you’ve just learned to your own job search, and individualized coaching within a smaller sub-group of four people working with a coach.

Expectations for participation are that you are ready to make commitments to achieve your personal goals and be held accountable to them, and you want to make serious progress toward your next position. There is an application to participate so that we have an understanding of where you are on your search so that we may build a cohort that is in a similar space.

Like other accelerators & UC’s Back to Business Basics, there is a cost of $100.00. However, you have the opportunity to earn back $75 by meeting the milestones that you set for weeks 2, 4, and 6.

Your participation in this group will provide dedicated, structured time to accelerate your search, fill in the blanks of “I don’t know what I don’t know,” and be equipped to carry through to the successful end of your search. You will also have a team to support you, encourage you, and share in the joys as you go, knowing that you are not alone in the job search wilderness. Limited to 8 people.
