Given that you are reading this, I am going to go out on a limb and assume you are experiencing one of four current problems right now:

  1. You are at the beginning of your career and are nervous about finding your first gig.
  2. You work for a company that just “doesn’t get communities”.
  3. You are stuck at a boring company working on a boring community.
  4. You want a new job, but are nervous about switching positions.

There is a load of opportunity out there, but companies are often nervous about hiring community professionals. I work with hundreds of companies building communities, and the concerns are very consistent: they don’t just want a community cheerleader, they want someone who can deliver predictable value that is aligned with their broader business objectives.

Frankly, there are too many cheerleaders out there. These are good people, but we need to be more than cheerleaders. We need to step above the noise and be the signal.

A Clear And Consistent Approach

This course shows you how to do exactly this.

I am going to take you throughout the entire recruitment process, step-by-step, and help you to match your experience and expertise to what the industry wants.

You will learn:

  • The key skills employers want

    Discover what employers want (and want to avoid) so you can be perfectly aligned with available roles.

  • How to differentiate from the pack

    Learn how to bring the best of you to the surface so you can set yourself apart from other candidates vying for the same gig.

  • How to get experience without getting hired

    Experience is critical, but you don't need a job to get it. Learn how so you can pack your resume with pragmatic expertise.

  • Create the perfect resume

    Learn how to create an amazing resume that packs expertise, talent, and punch to get you to the top of the pile.

  • Nail the interview process

    I will guide you through the entire recruitment process for researching, preparing for, and delivering your interview.

  • Negotiate your salary and package

    Discover how to negotiate your salary, benefits, and overall package to ensure you are balancing a great role with a great deal.

  • Start your new job on a high

    Learn how to make the best possible impression, deliver results, and build lasting relationships.
