Accelerate Your Grad's First Professional Job To Secure Their Life-long Success

Could your grad be falling behind professionally? You want them to have a solid start for a rewarding career, right? You want your grad to find the right experience in their all-important first job after graduation, to set the tone for their future. 

Your grad builds key marketable skills from their very first job and then up the ladder. Learning to get a job and expending energy productively are vital to move your college grad to the next step in their adult life.

But your grad is back living with you? They cost you thousands of dollars to live at home. 

The natural order of your life is disrupted. Without helping them get employed as soon as possible, you will not return to your normal life.

Recent college graduates missed out; they now need to quickly make up lost time and learn how to efficiently find a job in our pandemic and high unemployment environment.

They never learned about crafting their personal brand. It’s too late to rely on job placement by colleges, already suffering from pandemic loss of funding. Colleges handled your grad like an after-thought, a number, and the tuition you paid did not provide the soft skills your grad needs right now.

Bottom line: because colleges have failed, it’s up to you. But since you may have last looked for a job, perhaps in the pre-pandemic era, the job search market has really changed. So, you are at a loss for ideas to help.

Or maybe they need to learn to get a job from people they aren't emotionally attached to. 

We, the two creators of this video presentation, both have children from college-age and up. We understand as parents the struggles that our combined 5 children and their friends experienced in their job search. They were lucky to have parents in the business of getting the right job.

Relief is Here

  • Get them back on track to cement their success for the rest of their professional life

  • Increase their confidence from getting a great job, a skill that will build over time

  • Reduce any concerns that you might have since your friend’s kids are already working

  • Get them moved out into the adult world and they will learn life skills being on their own

  • Take back your life, then you and your family can return to a normalcy all are entitled to

  • Now it’s up to you to give the lifetime gift of catapulting them into that all-important first career position

You might be thinking...

  • Didn't I pay enough college tuition to get my grad a job?

    On average, colleges have 2,000 students per career counselor.
    How much attention did your grad get even if they went for counseling often? Maybe they ignored that advice?

  • Their final semester was cut short due to the pandemic

    But did they get all the advice they needed? Perhaps they attended a career search session once, but that’s not enough, without any follow-through. They still need more work on their whole brand.

  • They may have never even gotten to career services

    This is a process, not a drop-by seminar. It takes sharp insight and objective critiques to get the best edition after frequent re-tweaks.
    Your grad gets that with us as part of the package.

  • The video program is expensive

    This 4+ hour program is chock-full of added value (weekly drop-by Q&A calls, blog subscriptions, resume and cover letter templates, and a mock interview). Besides, the enrollment fee is a drop in the bucket compared to months'/year's delay landing the right career position!

Building confidence

Henry D.

“My daughter, a recent graduate, just finished working with Marc and Mike on her next career steps as she prepares for the job market. Their expertise and insight were invaluable. She came away feeling more confident and prepared for the process. I highly recommend them and their video program for any college student or graduate looking for a job.”

I couldn't do it alone

Katy L.

“Michael has been an extraordinary help and resource through my post-graduate career search. I honestly do not know what I would do without his guidance and support. I now feel in control of my application process and am not overwhelmed with deadlines. It has been an honor to work with Michael and I am truly grateful for the opportunity. I would recommend him to anyone!"

Marc easily engages his audience with wit, energy, and depth of knowledge and his deep commitment to helping others find a position. Hundreds have benefited from Marc's classes--landing interviews, jobs, and networking opportunities."

Guided me every step of the way

Jimmy H.

"Marc is an amazing LinkedIn resource. He guided me through every step of the process from building my profile to building my network. Marc’s approach was to get to know me, my strengths, and my target. My profile was greatly enhanced and my activity on LinkedIn has increased dramatically. I went from being invisible to being found in searches and my profile views have also increased greatly."

Speed my job search

Gabrielle J.

"Michael took the time to understand my career goals. He enhanced my resume to show me as a strong contributor, with words that jumped from the page. He improved my LinkedIn profile to display key words where recruiters search most. He showed me best-in- class interview techniques to target my skills and to answer those difficult questions. I believe that Michael will speed my job search by 3 or more months."

This program opens many new opportunities!

Chris, former Marine, BA 2020; re-entering workforce

"In the past couple of months, I heard nothing from prospective employers. My resume was not getting through the Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS).

By following your program, I went from 2-3 calls per week to 15-20! For this, I credit many of the practical ideas you presented: I spoke with one contact who then referred me to 6 others. All six people looked at my resume, and I have calls with them.

As a recent college graduate, there is no better resource. Got me on the right track quickly."
