You’ve landed at the place for millennial support, empathy, and collective head-scratching while navigating the exciting, overwhelming, hyperventilation-inducing waters of career choice and life building.
Or avoiding them. Whatever the case may be.
Here we focus on key questions such as:
- Why do we feel paralyzed during the career search?
- How do we figure out who we are?
- Where do our career inclinations come from?
- How do we go after a career that is meaningful while remaining practical?
- What do our parents have to do with our career and our identity?
- How can we overcome social comparisons and the need to impress so that we can start down the path we’ve always wanted to follow?
- When will we finally stop feeling confused and start having it all figured out? (Short answer: never)
Everything you need to know to embark on an awesome career search is here – based on psychology research and my decade worth of work with college students. You can find the most recent classes at our blog, or catch up on past lessons (you slacker, you, cutting so much class…) by choosing the lectures that match your mood. And if you’re feeling really daring – and ready to make change – consider chatting with me one-on-one.
