How it works
How it works

First, we want to learn about you, your goals, and your motivations

In the application, we ask you to try and bucket your career aspirations into three groups: goals you should have, goals you could have, and goals you must have. Don't worry, you can always adjust later!

First, we want to learn about you, your goals, and your motivations

In the application, we ask you to try and bucket your career aspirations into three groups: goals you should have, goals you could have, and goals you must have. Don't worry, you can always adjust later!

Next, our platform develops a personalized career roadmap for you

Based on the goals shared in your application, your roadmap will suggest career or job search actions you should take, accompanied with a recommended timeline.

Then, we recommend your A-Team!

Even a well defined plan can be hard to accomplish alone. That's why our platform suggests career agents, financial advisors, and skill experts (aka your A-Team) to support you throughout your journey.

Next, grow as a professional

We help you build a resume based on work you've done in the past (maybe you've babysat or participated in a science fair). Then, we suggest real-world experiences right for you.

Then, chat with your career coach and financial advisor

Once you've built your roadmap, you'll start working with your career coach and financial advisors towards your goals. Both of them are meant to be your accountability buddies, objective perspective, support system, and cheer leaders!

How it Works
We learn about you, then match you with an A-team of career coaches & financial advisors.
What our Users say
"Coaching was a huge part of getting an offer. I had the motivation and practice, so I was like 'why am I not nailing things?' My coach helped me go through and figure out my story. That was the piece I was missing."
- 28 yr old finally making it past final rounds
"Everything I have tried [to find the right career] for the past 2.5 years wasn't working. I feel so much better with coaching. I have less anxiety and it's helpful to actually have a plan."
- 24 yr old who now has career direction
"I saw my bosses and thought 'I don't want to be them. But what next?' I was so excited about my job when I first started, and now I feel like an imposter. Coaching allowed me to realize that it's okay to change and we deserve to have a career path that changes with us."
- 25 yr old who felt trapped in her job
Pricing you can get behind
