You probably know that doing a job search involves things like tweaking your resume, sharpening your interview skills, networking and improving your LinkedIn profile. But, as you can tell from the title, this program isn’t about all those practical things you must do to find a new job. It can’t be… not with section titles like “Get Closer To The Divine” and “Access Your Inner Wisdom.” Why You Need This Program It's true, you won't get advice on how many pages your resume should be or the best way to answer interview questions like, "What's your greatest weakness?" (Which is the kind of information I've included in two books, hundreds of articles and my other career-related courses on Udemy.) Y et, the holistic and philosophical concepts in Your Job Search Is A Spiritual Journey will definitely speed results & make your life more meaningful. That's because when you have clarity, you speak with more clarity about what you want, and people respond to you better because it’s clear to them what you want. It’s also because when you emanate positive energy and joyful intent, you become more attractive to others. They want to be around you. They want to help you. They want to hire you. This program is meant to supplement your job search efforts. The videos are all under 5 minutes long, so you can dip in and get some quick inspiration. Each section comes with exercises that are designed to make the information more interactive and to help you process the concepts at a more personal level. During the program, you will see how to: Release and reframe the dissatisfaction from your past or current employment situation Use the practice of gratitude to your advantage Gain clarity about your wants and needs in regard to success Quickly assess your own uniqueness Think creatively about your options for doing meaningful work in the world Build some support for yourself during your job search and the career path ahead Get some easy-to-use tools to access your inner wisdom and set your vision into motion Conscious Career Everything you go through in your life, including your job search, is part of your spiritual journey. In this program, we will look at how you can use your job search to open your eyes and see who you really are and what you’re meant to be doing with your life. This program is for you if want a "Conscious Career"... which means choosing and doing work that is in alignment with your authentic self. And it's for you whether you are currently looking for a job or thinking of looking for something new. Either way, you will find inspiration and support to keep you moving forward. Note: References are made to various spiritual traditions throughout this course because it is recognized that many spiritual roads lead to Divine Truth. No one particular religion or philosophy is preferred or recommended.

Sterling knows better than anyone I've met how to optimize your presence — and that can have enormous payoffs in getting the job you're looking for!" – Jon Ogden, Director of Content at MX " Sterling is extremely thorough in his analysis and his suggestions for improvement are concise and easy to follow." – Braden Thompson, Marketing and Communication Professional "I always have had a LinkedIn profile and like most, I just put down the basics and didn't invest a lot of time in keeping it up. Sterling evaluated and made recommendations to my linkedIn profile 2 months ago. I still have some work to do based on his analysis, but since I have made some of the changes he recommended my rank in views has increased by about 30%. His knowledge and expertise really helped me better my online presence ." – Preston Hopkin, Client Account Executive at AtTask, Inc. " Sterling did a fantastic job at evaluating, critiquing, and helping me update my LinkedIn profile . I've received tons of compliments on how professional my profile is as well as I've noticed a very significant increase in the amount of views I have received since heeding Sterling's advice and suggestions. I'm very satisfied with my current position and role, however, it has been really nice to see the amount of companies and recruiters that reach out asking for more information from me and if I would have interest in working for them. I can credit a lot of this outreach to the advice received from Sterling. I would highly recommend Sterling for any consulting needs in regards to any of the major social media outlets." – Tyson Harding, Project Manager at New Dawn Technologies

Course launched in October 2014 and attracted 400 students in the first 24 hours. Have you been looking for a job but getting nowhere? Sending out what seems like (or maybe even is) hundreds of resumes and not getting a response? Going on 1, 2 or 3 job interviews for the same job but not getting an offer? Everyone tells you that you need to network to get a job, but you don’t know where to start or what to say? People say that a cover letter is important, but what does it need to say to make it work? How do you follow up on your application or job interview without turning into a stalker? This course answers all of these common questions that my clients ask as they navigate the job search. So you’re not alone, and there are definitely right and wrong ways to handle each of those situations. I have 12 years of experience as a hiring manager. I have been the person who wrote job descriptions for the positions I wanted to fill, reviewed the resumes, conducted the interviews and ultimately made a candidate the job offer. Since I started my business in 2008, in addition to coaching job seekers on how to get a job, I have also been a recruiter for a variety of positions in multiple industries. As a hiring manager, and a recruiter, I’m always thinking “is this a great person, but they’re hiding behind a bad resume?” or “is this a great person but they’re too nervous for me to tell if they’re great at their job.” Nothing is kept secret – I tell you everything I have learned from both sides of the desk--making decisions as a hiring manager/recruiter and “whispering” in my client’s ears to successfully get a job offer. As well as the Udemy 30 day guarantee, you have my personal promise that this course will give you tips you need to fix your job search today and put you firmly on the right track. And YES I will respond to the questions you pose throughout the course. I'm here to help you get a job. What this course is not: This is not intended to be the first place to look to start your job search. It’s meant to talk job seekers through changes you can make to your existing job search strategy. It is not a course on how to start your job search. Unfortunately due to the volume of students in the course, I am not able to look at your resume or cover letter to give you my opinion. Please take the tips I present here to evaluate your materials.I will answer questions you pose under the discussion section. I will teach you strategies that I have personally used in my job searches, and recommend strategies based on my perspective as a hiring manager and recruiter. I won’t teach you outrageous things to do to get attention from companies. That would be reckless of me to advise tactics like that when I don’t know the norms and taboos of your industry. But I can guarantee that I will teach you ways to improve your job search that you haven’t considered before. You just need to get one job. I’ve helped hundreds of people get their jobs, and they’ve come back to me when they’re ready to move to the next level. Every minute you delay is actually COSTING you money! Every job you don’t get an interview for, and ultimately a job offer is a lost opportunity. Looking for a job isn’t a numbers game, the goal is to pinpoint the jobs you are an excellent fit for, and use these strategies to get them. THE PRICE WILL GO UP! And yes, with your lifetime access you'll also get access to the additional sections I will be publishing in this course.
