This is one-on-one career coaching for new grads and young professionals who feel lost and have no freaking clue what to do next.

Because how can you follow your dreams if you don’t know what they are?

 

  • You feel lost.
  • You don’t know what you want.
  • You feel like you’re under a lot of pressure to figure your shit out.
  • You don’t want to do what you went to school for and you’re freaking out.
  • Or you do want to do what you went to school for, but you have no idea how to get started.
  • You want to get unstuck and find a career that feels good and is uniquely you.

OMG, Now What?! is a career coaching program for new grads and young professionals who feel lost and want to make a plan, Stan.

Because you’re sick of feeling lost.
Because you can and you will get this figured out.
And because there is an amazing career out there for you.
Let’s go get it.

…………………………………………………

This is for you if…

You feel like everyone else has their shit together, but you have no idea what the hell you’re doing.

You want some help to explore your options in creative ways. You don’t want to just pick a box. Ew.

You don’t want to settle, but you don’t want to flit around chasing pipe dreams either. You want a plan that actually feels good.

You’re down with me asking some hard questions and pointing out your blind spots. It’s done with love.

You are sick and tired of feeling lost, and you’re ready to finally get this career thing figured out.

 

This is not for you if…
  • You ONLY want help with your resume and cover letter. We’ll get to that, but only after we do some work to figure out what you really want.
  • You want to do a career or personality assessment. That’s just not how I roll. Assessments can be fun, but they’re often kind of, well, shallow. To get you where you want to go we’ll need to dig deep.
  • You’re not willing to talk about your feelings. We’re just going to have to go there. If you think career navigation is purely a rational process, you’re nuts. It’s largely emotional.

 

…………………………………………………

You know more than you think you do. We’ll do a little soul searching to prove that. You might surprise yourself.

You don’t need to have your whole life planned out to start moving. You can take steps toward some really awesome goals while you’re still working out the details.

You’re not actually supposed to know what the future looks like. Nobody does. You can dream and plan, but you’ll keep growing and changing until you die, and your career goals will grow and change too.

Nobody has it all figured out. Everybody’s just winging it. But there’s a right way and a wrong way to wing it (Hint: the right way involves listening to your gut).

Your doubts and fears don’t have to stop you from going after what you want. You just need to move through them. I’ll help.

You’ll finally figure out what you want.
You’ll realize you can move through the fear and uncertainty (and not die in the process!).
You won’t feel like you’re alone in this. You’ll have a road map and a partner in crime.
You’ll start taking action – with baby steps at first, then big, bold ones.
You’ll finally be on your way to a feel-good career!

 

…………………………………………………

You and me.
One-on-one.
Getting unstuck.
Exploring your future career for two months.

…………………………………………………

We’ll meet for an hour every other week to talk out your options and hatch a plan. That’s 5 coaching sessions to go deep until you’re feeling crystal clear on what you want. We’ll explore the possibilities, get clear on what’s right for you, build a roadmap, and take action so you can move toward a career you’ll love.

…………………………………………………

We’ll spend most of our sessions digging deep and exploring your passions, interests and curiosities. Maybe we’ll toss in some strategy. Maybe we’ll spend a session or two polishing your resume until it sparkles. How we do this is up to you, and everybody needs something a little different.

It’s my job to help you articulate what you want. I do that by asking a lot of good questions. And by listening like a ninja. And by pointing out some of your blind spots. And, occasionally, by calling you on some of your bullshit (it’s done with love, I promise). It’s your job to dig deep, be honest with yourself, and do the work.

We’ll meet over a cuppa joe in my office in downtown Toronto (Yonge & Queen). Just you, me, your fav caffeinated bevy and a whole lotta magic.

I’m Sarah Vermunt, the gal behind Careergasm. I help people figure out what the heck they want so they can do work they love.

I write about careers for Forbes, Entrepreneur, Inc., and Huffington Post, and my work has been featured at Financial Times, Fortune, Tech VibesToronto Star, Flare Magazine, Global News, The Globe and Mail, and lots of other cool places. I also personally know what it’s like to feel stuck and (more importantly) get unstuck. I’ve made some pretty badass career moves of my own:

– After graduation I snagged a job in a field totally unrelated to what I studied. Nailed it. Loved it.

– I quit a stable gig with awesome pay, benefits, and pension to take a chance on something new.

– I quit my PhD after 4 years and 93 pages into my dissertation. Ballsy.

– I left a six-figure career track to take a risk on building my own business. Spoiler alert: It paid off.

– I continue to take calculated risks with my career…because doing the scary stuff often yields BIG rewards.

Through all of this I’ve been scared shitless, but did it anyway. You can too.

I work with brave souls who knock my socks off with their courage, perseverance, and heart. Some of my favourite clients are:
  • An anthropology grad who makes documentary films.
  • A business grad who started a web design company.
  • An engineering grad who works for a supercool startup.
  • A media grad who helps people get press for their biz.
  • A finance grad who became a life coach.

OMG, Now What : Coaching for New Grads & Young Professionals will help you figure out what the heck you want and find the guts to go out there and get it. Finally!

 

Ready to get this party started? Let’s chat. Because you’ve felt lost for long enough and it’s about damn time you did something about it.

My one-on-one coaching client load is currently full. Ugh! I know. But a few spots should open up soon. If you think you might be interested, drop me a line and tell me about yourself. I’d love to hear from you and I can keep you posted when a spot opens up.
