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 millions of 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.
+ 6 months of LIVE support
I'll support you through this process with monthly group coaching calls for 6 months. That means that even after the 10 program modules and 3 BONUS modules are complete, I'll still be there to help. I want to support you all the way through this — including getting the clarity you need, working through any fears, preparing for interviews, strategizing around giving notice at your current job, and anything else you encounter on this journey. I'll be there for the whole ride.
This is a 10 week program, plus 3 bonus weeks, PLUS it includes 6 months of LIVE coaching calls that continue even once the program modules and BONUS modules are completed.
The live monthly video calls are on the first Tuesday of each month at 1:00pm EST. During each call, I'll answer questions and provide live coaching. (You'll be off camera, don't worry.)
You'll receive invitations and links for the calls when you sign up for the program.
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.
You'll work more intensely with weekly modules that will arrive in your inbox weekly for the first 3 months of the program. In addition to that, I'll support you with monthly LIVE group coaching calls, to help you as you get the clarity you're looking for and navigate your change.
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 2 hours (for the coaching module worksheet exercises).
In addition, we'll have one LIVE group coaching call each month for 6 months, 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 get immediate access to the first module so that you can get started right away. Hot diggity!
2. You'll also receive an invitation to your first LIVE coaching call, so you're fully supported right from the get-go.
