What past participants say:
Is the Fellowship right for me?
We've designed the Fellowship to help you figure out exactly what you want next from your career regardless of your age, background, or industry.
You already know exactly what you want and just need help landing a job ASAP
You want 1-on-1 expert career coaching (this is a peer-to-peer program)
You want the answers handed to you and don't have time to put in the hard work
You aren't excited to spend some of your time helping your peers
You're not able to commit to completing the assigned work (about 5-7 hrs/wk)
You’re looking for specialized career advice for a unique situation (launching your business, getting promoted to CEO, etc.)
What do you mean by "Career Design"?
Career Design is the act of intentionally crafting your career to make it fit you, whether you want to make the most of your current career path or make a bigger career change to something entirely different. Career Design is all about understanding yourself, your goals, and your options, then making a plan and taking thoughtful steps towards more fulfillment.
How much time will this take? When do I need to be available?
We've designed the Fellowship to take 5 to 7 hours of work per week, mostly on your own schedule.
What technology do I need to participate?
All you need is a computer with a webcam (tablets won't work!), reliable wifi, and a Google account. Nothing to download, and no special equipment required! We'll be using a platform called Teachable for the program curriculum, a tool called Circle for our community discussion forum, Google Docs for your assignments, and a video conferencing tool called Jitsi Meet. We provide tech tutorials before the Fellowship begins so you can learn everything you need to know!
What if I have to miss one or more of the Team meetings?
