Learn how we helped Holly to be proactive, structured, and deliberate in understanding her transferrable skills, confidently deciding on which career direction felt most compatible, and successfully pivoting into that path.
We hear people often say, "where do I start?" or "I fell into this career path instead of choosing a path intentionally" or "money isn't enough anymore, I need to find fulfillment at work" and much more.
We are here to help you expedite your years of frustration, time-block your uncertainty, and take control of clarifying your best fit path before jumping into any job search.

"Guiding through the networking process. Networking is typically an uncomfortable experience for me, but the platform gave me the guidance and structure to make it more manageable."
"Before I started the WOKEN process I felt stuck in my current job without a good idea of how to move forward or even where I wanted to go. I had spoken to career coaches and my school's career services department and always came aways came away discouraged. I did not know how to orient myself towards a career and a future that I actually found desirable. I was experiencing the dilemma of present discomfort, a sense of being 'stuck' and lacking direction. Overall, not a great place to be! The WOKEN process really is different. From day one, taking action to determine my real skills and genuine interests lit a spark and gave me hope that I could not only identify work I could find deep enjoyment and engagement with--I could actually make a career out of work like that. I am still working the system, but have managed to narrow my options down (in a good way!) to a manageable number of very attractive and attainable outcomes. The sense of peace and relief is really incredible The main benefits of the platform are two fold: the WOKEN process provides a concrete framework for zeroing in on attractive and attainable career options that really are tailored to YOUR interests and passions and an amazing team (especially my career coach!) who will keep you grounded, motivated and provide direction as needed throughout the process. This is very different from most career coaching services! Who should pursue this. Anyone who is not currently in their dream job. Even if you are happy where you are working I am confident this team can help you gain insights about directions to head in--even within your current role! I cannot recommend WOKEN highly enough."
"The accountability, direction, and motivation from my career coach. And also, really taking the time to reflect on what I have done, what my strengths, weaknesses, and what I can do, through the platform."
"The WOKEN process really is different."
"This is the first time I ever enjoyed the resume editing process."
"Definitely helpful, allowed me to change my thoughts about applying to jobs and helped me narrow in on the right career path for me. WOKEN was definitely very helpful to realize that my desired goal is attainable."
"The cycle will not break unless I disrupt it."
"Thank you for all of your help and I am grateful I found you. You have helped me a lot. I am definitely feeling more organized and optimistic about my job search."
"I found the mission statement writing is super helpful. It helped me to find the industry I want to work for and find what jobs specifically I want verse a broad picture. It helped me to find the job opportunities in the industry that I might not think about it before and It is good to breakdown the career things."
"My career coach was a wonderful coach and was great about keeping me calm during the most stressful parts of the search. This was helpful in helping me reach my own conclusion about the type of company I should end up at and making sure that I was calm throughout the process. I was in the middle of a job search process, uncertain about which type of organization I should pursue. I am very happy at a new job that is paying $35k more than my last role. I benefited from understanding the pros and cons of different types of organizations/ industries. Early stage professionals uncertain of their next steps should consider this platform. Thanks for everything!"
