I'm Sarah Vermunt, the gal behind Careergasm. I'm a career change coach, former business professor, and the bestselling author of Careergasm and Career Rookie.
I've served up straight-talking career advice at places like Forbes, Inc., Entrepreneur, Fortune, and Fast Company. And each month, my career advice is pumped into 30 million homes across North America. This is not my first rodeo.
I help people figure out what the heck they want so they can quit jobs they hate and do work that actually feels good. And, my friend, that can be YOU.
We'll articulate all of the shit that drives you crazy, identify what to steer clear of, and examine some of the emotional blocks that are keeping you stuck.
We'll sort career ingredients into yes please and no thanks piles, and review the good and bad career advice swirling around you.
There are career clues in places you may not have considered. We'll look at your unique gifts, and zone in on what a career sweet spot may feel like for you.
We'll look at things that brought you joy in the past, reconnect with what your tiny human self loved as a child, and start combining career ingredients.
We'll do a big career brain dump — getting your ideas out of your head and onto paper, and sorting any vague ideas (half-baked is ok!) into categories.
We'll determine whether the fears you're feeling mean abort mission or go for it. We'll take brave action by preparing for your first informational interviews.
We'll examine any thought patterns that may be keeping you stuck, get honest about procrastination and excuses, and look at your relationship with risk.
We'll gather some career clues from your green-eyed monster, and work on curbing any unhealthy career comparing habits that are dragging you down.
We'll try on two different models of career planning, and gently address any "are we there yet?" frustration you may be feeling.
We'll make sure your career goals are in alignment with what you really want, map out your next steps, and create a customized plan of action.
Your resume is getting a makeover.
You'll learn which of your skills and experiences are most transferable for your new path and how to polish them up so they shine. After that, revamping your resume for your new path will be easy peasy.
Prepare to slay on the big day.
You'll learn how to make a good impression, prepare answers for tricky questions, plan for the questions you should ask them (interviews are a two-way street!), and learn how to keep your cool when anxiety runs high.
Learn how to negotiate your salary without leaving money on the table.
Includes: how to determine your number, what research you should do to get to that number, how and when to negotiate, and even what language to use to get more money.
+ a full year of support
Even after the 10 program modules and 3 BONUS modules are complete, I'll continue to support you with live monthly group coaching calls for the entire rest of the year. I want to support you as you implement your change — whether it's dealing with interview jitters, strategizing around giving notice at your current job, settling into your new job, or dealing with emotions as you make this change. I'll be there for the whole ride.
This is a 10 week program, plus 3 bonus weeks, AND a whole year of support with monthly coaching calls even once the program is over.
The live weekly video calls are on Tuesdays. (Except for our welcome & orientation call on Wed Feb 8.) We'll dive into that week's topic, and I'll answer your questions and provide live coaching.

No problemo. You'll have access to the recordings when they're finished so you won't miss a thing. And you can post questions in advance even if you can't join us live.
We'll work intensely together with live weekly calls for the first 3 months of the program. After that, I'll continue to support you with monthly calls, as you implement your change, for the entire rest of the year.
You absolutely can! If you've failed to make a career change on your own, the support and accountability this program provides may be exactly what you need.
For the first 3 months of this program, your weekly commitment will be approximately 3 hours (1 for the weekly coaching call, and 2 for the coaching module worksheet exercises).
After those first 3 months, we slow things down so everyone can move forward at their own pace. We'll have one coaching call each month, and how fast you move through your career change is entirely up to you.
The BONUS library includes videos, guides, and worksheets on everything from tapping into your intuition, choosing your transition timeline, building a network of support, and a ton more.
There are also 3 additional BONUS weeks in this program — all about strategy — how to rebrand yourself and your resume, how to nail your interview, and how to negotiate your salary.
Just reach out. I'm happy to answer any questions you have. You can get in touch with me directly here.
1. You will receive an excited email from me welcoming you to the program!
2. You get immediate access to the first module so that you can get started right away. Hot diggity!
