"I started the day without any good ideas nor any clear career path in mind. By the end of the day, I not only had two distinct career path ideas, but also a list of helpful resources and great contacts. My experience with the program was invaluable, and I am hopeful that a new and exciting career will begin sooner than I ever thought!"

- Rachel, February 2019

"I have been talking about and exploring a career change for years so when I heard about the bootcamp, it was with a little skepticism that I decided to sign up.  Was I in for a surprise! Not only did I learn more about myself but I was able to to identify my main career interests and leave with an exciting plan forward… WOW!!"

- Matt, December 2018

"Before the bootcamp I felt overwhelmed and unsure of how to even begin to find a new and more fulfilling career. I did not have a clear vision of what that future looked like or how I could achieve it. Now the Bootcamp gave me a methodology to identify my strengths, tease out a future vision, and develop an execution plan to achieve that vision. In addition, the collaborative aspects of the program allowed me to leverage the experience and knowledge of the other participants."

- Anne, November 2018
