I'm Sarah Vermunt, Careergasm Founder and bestselling author of Careergasm and Career Rookie. I created Careergasm to help people pursue work that thrills and delights.
I've served up BS-free career advice at Forbes, Inc., Entrepreneur, Fast Company, and Fortune. And each month, my career advice is pumped into millions of homes across North America.
I help people figure out what the hell they want so they can quit jobs they hate and do work they love. And you know how that all started?
I had a breakdown in the middle of a crowded Starbucks. Yup. Sexy.
I was working as a professor at a business school, and was hunched over my laptop at Starbucks, working on some research. I HATED conducting research. One day I just couldn’t do it anymore. Not for another second. I had a big, fat, embarrassing meltdown right in the middle of Starbucks. The kicker? I was teaching and researching workplace happiness. (The irony!)
I gave notice the next day. A career as a professor was not for me. Since then, I’ve devoted my life to helping people quit jobs they hate, to getting the hell out of Dodge when they just can’t take it anymore, and to helping people choose careers they can fall crazy drunk in love with.
I’d like to help you get unstuck and figure some stuff out. Working with me is like a warm hug and a kick in the ass. If you’re here, you probably need both.
