Job Search Bootcamp

 Stand Out. Get Hired. Do The Work You Love.

I got new energy and self-confidence after taking your class. I feel better about my networking, negotiation, and interview skills in a way that I could not have done alone. This course gives you great advice and teammates to achieve your career goals.”

– Michelle W., Fall 2016  


Program Overview

Job Search Bootcamp is a six week small group coaching program designed to help early to mid-career social impact professionals kick start or reinvigorate a job search. For two hours each week, you’ll meet with me and a small group of other job searchers to build your skills in each step of the job search process.

In between sessions you’ll complete assignments and check in with your accountability partner to ensure you’re making progress.

In addition, you’ll get lifetime access to a shared online group for discussion and support, a growing network of program alumni, and a set of job search guides and templates you can use now and for future job searches.

Bootcamps are designed for professionals with approximately 5-15 years of full-time experience and an interest in doing work that has a positive social impact in the private, public, or nonprofit sectors.

What You’ll Get

If you join Job Search Bootcamp and complete all assignments, within six weeks you will have:

  • Goals and a plan for your search, to help you structure your time and work smarter not harder
  • Accountability and support from an expert coach and peers going through the same experience
  • Motivation to get started on your search or move forward on a stalled search
  • Clarity and confidence in knowing what you’re looking for and how to tell your “career story”
  • Tools to help you stand out and get hired: a revamped resume, LinkedIn profile, and cover letter
  • Proven tactics to help you succeed in behavioral interviews and feedback on how you come across

In addition, you’ll get:

  • Insights from a career coach and recruiter who knows the nonprofit, public, and private sectors
  • Templates and assignments to help you implement proven strategies right away in your search
  • A peer network and relationships you will rely on far beyond the program

Why Group Coaching?

Group coaching is an excellent way to get many of the same benefits you would get from individual coaching at a lower cost and with the added bonus of meeting and getting support from a small group of like-minded peers. Groups are limited to six participants so that they are small enough for plenty of discussion and you’ll have opportunities to partner with and get to know everyone else in the group.


Who It’s For

Job Search Bootcamp is a good fit for you if you are:

  • An early or mid-career professional (approximately 5-15 years of full-time experience) who wants to launch or re-energize your job search
  • Interested in doing work that has a positive social impact, whether in the private, public, or nonprofit sector
  • Ready to roll up your sleeves and able to spend at least 3-5 hours per week working on your search
  • Excited to build a network of like-minded peers and open to giving and receiving honest feedback

Who It’s Not For

Job Search Bootcamp is probably not a good fit for you if you are:

  • Very early in your career or a more senior professional; please let me know if you’re interested, so I can launch groups for you in the future!
  • Unable to commit significant time or energy to your search; if you’re not ready yet, sign up here for future program dates.
  • Not open to working in a small group format; group members get so much value out of the experience of working together. However, if you prefer to work one on one please contact me to discuss individual coaching.

The job search process can be incredibly daunting. The structure that Erin brings to this process and the support from fellow job searchers is invaluable. It helped me reflect on my job search as well as my career as a whole.”
