Imagine waking up a few months before graduation. Up until this point, you’ve done everything right:
Sounds perfect, right?
But then you ask yourself the question… “Wait….what am I going to do after I graduate?”
And your heart sinks.
It’s the elephant in the room that's staring you in the face.
You’ve pushed off this question for years - using your status as a college student to procrastinate working on your professional career. As graduation gets closer, the stress slowly starts to creep up.
Maybe you don’t know...
Despite doing everything right, you don’t know why you feel so unprepared. And it isn’t your fault.
For the first time in your life, there isn’t another obvious next step or “17th grade” of school. You are abruptly shifting to a new phase of your life -- where you are responsible for managing your career and life after graduation.
A job that pays you enough to make a dent in your student loans and even leaves you with some money left over to travel the world and buy the things you want. A job that’s conducive to building meaningful relationships in and out of the workplace. And most importantly, a job that gives you a deep sense of meaning and purpose in the world, the confidence to achieve, and one that allows you to start your adult life on a rocket-ship trajectory.
If this interests you, congrats! Simply by reading this you’re one step closer to making it all happen….

2) Building a world-class application that breaks through the noise and lands interviews with notoriously competitive organizations (1% interview rate)
3) Interview techniques that convert interviews to offers with even the toughest interview processes (Bain, LEK, Netflix, LinkedIn, etc.)
4) Beyond the interview bonus material (complementary access)
“VERY good information, you should take advantage of this while you’re still in school. Insightful, relatable. It’s counter intuitive! Students think it’s smooth sailing after you get your degree. You just send a couple resumes and you get hired because of the university you went to. But it’s MUCH more than that. And it’s not just about getting a job, it’s about building your career and development.” - Ryan (transfer student)
“You need to watch these videos. These two guys just break down how they prepare for interviews, how to write a cover letter, etc.” - Sydney (Junior)
“It’s just so difficult to find high quality career advice from people who know what they are talking about. Especially people who are recent graduates. You guys nailed it." - Jerry (recent graduate working in finance)
“The course was super helpful. Great for people who want straight to the point, no flowery language or bullshit.” Kristy (Sophomore)
They decided to pull out all the stops and distill everything they know about uncovering career paths and landing competitive job offers into this one-stop-shop video course.
"I actually never got into college through the “traditional” method of applying in high school.
Well, I did apply to UCLA in high school and got rejected, but ultimately got into the university via a special appeal program through the school’s music department.
It was a double-edged sword -- getting into my dream school but then dealing with the imposter syndrome of being surrounded by 35,000 other students who, on paper, were more likely to succeed than I was.
Throughout my time in college, I learned (the hard way) how to leverage the intelligence of my peers (rather than compete with them), and through peer-to-peer learning, was able to have an incredibly rewarding and enjoyable college experience. By leading a number of student groups on campus geared towards professional development, I got very good at pinpointing the types of issues college students face when looking to build their careers in preparation for full-time employment.
Upon graduating, I tested the same strategies I taught younger students on myself, and landed a job at L.E.K. Consulting, a company that was listed on Glassdoor’s Top 25 Toughest Companies to Interview With. After a brief subsequent stint at Discovery Channel helping with the $15B acquisition of Scripps Networks (HGTV, Food Network), I landed my dream job at Netflix, where I work today as a marketing strategist for Original Series and Stand-up Comedy Specials.
In addition to my insanely fun career in entertainment, I also travel around the country as a keynote leadership and career development speaker for college students, and act as a consultant to career centers and university professionals in the career services space. I’m also a certified course instructor for the esteemed National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) and sit on the board of the UCLA Alumni Association."
"I have always been fascinated by people’s career choices and what they spend their life accomplishing.
In 2017 I graduated from UC Berkeley where I majored in business administration with a concentration in entrepreneurship & technology. At UC Berkeley, I noticed three interesting trends with student career choices:
I wanted to graduate with a well-paying job and accelerated career trajectory, but on my own terms. I believed there must be a way to explore my career interests and stay ahead of the curve without sacrificing my personal goals.
Through 4 years of trial and error, euphoric 6-figure job offers, stinging rejection letters, and writing over 100 thousand words on career advice for high-achieving college students, I've learned what it takes to launch your career... and I can't wait to share it all with you!"
“Launching your career” is different than simply “finding a job” - specifically, there are 3 unique aspects about launching your career:
1) Launching your career means doing something you would do even without being paid (almost)
You wake up excited about work and are continually inspired by the colleagues you work with. Sometimes you don't even believe people pay you to do what you do.
2) Launching your career means having a job after college that provides you with short-term financial security but long-term upward momentum
The average college graduate earns $50k a year. Our goal is for you to deviate from the norm, earning far more than the average. This course will enable you to earn 20% - 100% more than your peers. And by applying the same principles from this course throughout your 20’s, it's very possible to earn well into 6-figures and be known at your company as a future executive.
3) Launching your career means your future opportunities are limitless
Have you ever wondered what it takes to become a CEO or executive? By launching your career, you will unlock doors you never knew existed. If you set your mind on something, you will know how to get it.
The simple truth is that most working professionals love nothing more than to “scout out” new talent and invest in them through mentorship to help others succeed. By learning how to tap into the rich network of working professionals around you and investing heavily into your career in your 20’s (through ongoing learning, mentorship, hard-work, sacrifice, and passion), you’ll receive outsized benefits and career opportunities that will put you on a fundamentally different trajectory than your peers.
While the above 3 points mostly highlight long-term benefits about building your career, there are a few short-term benefits too. By applying the lessons from our course, we've seen students beat the average annual graduate compensation amount by 5-figures, with some even landing offers over 2x higher than the typical employed graduate
But again, it's not only about the money. For most people, higher compensation doesn't make them feel fulfilled or happy over the long-run. Instead, the quality of your relationships, the meaning you find in your work, and the life you live outside of work are (from our experience) the biggest drivers of a satisfying life. However these are all three things that will benefit from having a truly powerful career.
In other words, launching your career is simply about being in control over your future. Seeing all the possibilities ahead of you. And feeling empowered to achieve.
That, is priceless.
After taking this course, you will be able to zone in on your career interest, uncover opportunities around you, and land offers in the most competitive roles at renowned companies
Maybe, but have you thought about how much the results from this course are worth to you?
