"The Career Change bootcamp was a major confidence boost for me. Grant and Erica have crafted unique tools that can be applied to anyone hoping to pivot into another career. The skills and feedback received from the presentations, and group discussions affirmed that I am on the right path. I highly recommend Mission Collaborative to anyone who feels ready for a change and is unsure where to start. Start here. I promise you will leave encouraged and equipped with actionable steps."

"Mission Collaborative provides the best career workshop that I've ever attended. The entire experience was thoughtful, reflective, and responsive to figuring out what I want to do next and how to take some first steps. It really helped me figure out what is important to me in a career and how a career can better align with my personal goals."

- Chris, May 2018

"After many months of being dissatisfied and unfulfilled in my career, I chose to spend my Saturday with Mission Collaborative at their Career Change Bootcamp. The bootcamp is a welcoming place to start your career change process. It's well-organized and has just the right amount of interaction with others in the course, allowing one to gain perspective, insight, and focus on what your next steps could and/or should be. We spent 8 hours together but the time passed so quickly it was almost hard to believe the day was over. I left feeling energized and felt I had a new path to follow and lots of people with whom to collaborate."

- Shelley, May 2018
