Frequently Asked Questions

"What is Job Hunt School?"

Job Hunt School is the world’s first online career management school of its kind for modern, experienced professionals. It's a 5-module video-based curriculum that shows you, step-by-step, how to build a career that reflects your values, safeguards your freedom, and teaches you how to market yourself and manage your career like a consummate professional, so you can have the impact (and income) you want.

"How is this different from other programs?"

JHS is for you if you have a good grasp of the basics and want to use your bargaining chips wisely and move to the next level in terms your work, salary, while getting more career autonomy. You're ready to plan and execute a higher level job search or maybe change careers. You want to take control of your career instead of having your current or future boss manage call the shots. We do cover things liker resumé and cover letter but the focus is on more progressive tactics for more experienced, ambitious, high-achievers who have high expectations of their careers and don't have time to learn by hit-or-miss over time.

"Who is this for?"

JHS is for experienced, independence-driven professionals who seek high levels of success and value their freedom. You may feel impatient with the glacial pace of the average career growth. You know there's "privileged information" that's rarely shared and can take years to compile on your own and you want to expedite that process. You seek mastery and you're okay breaking away from the herd. Notes for Prospective Scholars will give you more insight into whether Job Hunt School is a fit.

...More on who this is for and pricing...

This is a significant investment, yet when you factor in that you're getting non-expiring lifetime membership, access to live events for the life of the program and all resources updates, it's an incredible value. Also factor in that this is one-of-a-kind and not your career center's guidance. That being said, it's not for everyone. It's for patient, ambitious pros and people who want ethical career success and mastery. We do not recommend you go into debt to enroll and encourage you to take the time to know what you're getting and feel comfortable that it's a fit. .  

Good questions to ask yourself: what will happen if you don't do this? Where will I be in a year? Is what I'm doing working?

"What if I need help or have a question specific to my situation?"  

Immediately after enrollment closes we kick off 6 weeks of once-weekly live trainings where I do a live training and answer your questions. These usually last about an hour. We do everything from live challenges to resumé reviews. You get the benefit of seeing what others are doing, the challenges they are taking on and hear answers to questions you may not have thought to ask.

You'll also be able to talk with Courtney, her team and other scholars in the private Facebook Common Room. We're here to support you 9-4 Eastern Time 5 days a week. Those are our "official" hours, but like you, we're online a lot more often than that and don't be surprised if you get an after-hours response. 

Our team is here to support you and we're very-responsive. You can ask questions in the comments section of our private learning platform 24/7 and see the questions and answers of other scholars. 

"What if I can't attend all the live trainings."

No problem. Live events are recorded for you so you can watch them on your own schedule and ask questions in the common room or the Comments section.

"Why not just get someone to do my resume for me?"

If you're looking for the next job and are happy to be chosen rather then choose and have the budget to pay someone else to take the reins for you every time you look for job or have a career choice to make, Job Hunt School is probably not for you.

"Is there a guarantee?"  

Yes, we do this so theres's no risk to you. Job Hunt School comes with a 100% money-back guarantee. You can see that here.

There's an abundance of that variety of training in existence already. A high level of candor is Job Hunt School's "dialect" because it's efficient and it works. If you thrive on no-BS straight talk, you'll be right at home.

4. The ideas in job hunt school are strongly motivated by a desire to level the playing field of your job hunt and career. We work best for people who take 100% responsibility for their results.

5. We are not lawyers. Employment and labor laws vary from country to country and state to state and change frequently. There are also regulatory agencies and other considerations This program is not intended as a substitute for legal advice of any kind.
