New Presentation: How to Find a Dream Job (Wed night)

Last time I was in San Francisco, I was chilling at a coffee shop when somebody randomly came up to me and said, “Are you Ramit Sethi?”

It turns out she was a Dream Job student and she’d gotten amazing results, to the tune of a $20K raise. I asked her to email me and she ACTUALLY did it! (Most people don’t follow up, even when they say they will.)

Here’s her email to me:

So…I’ve been pleased with the results of my Dream Job course.

The back story:

Two years, I launched a new flagship product called “Find Your Dream Job.” We spend over 2 years developing the course.

(We even threw away our first 6 months of work when, in our first testing cohort, 100% of people failed. Women were actually crying. Crying women and chips & salsa are my kryptonite, so we threw the entire thing away and started from scratch).

Finally, 16 versions later, we got the course right.

One of my great thrills was shutting up the skeptics (“Get a Dream Job? In this economy? I’m lucky to even have a job”) with results like Emily’s above, and even more like these:

I STILL get tons of emails about how to find a Dream Job. Interestingly, most are not about the strategies or tactics, but questions more like:

  • “How do I figure out what my dream job IS?”
  • “How do I choose one thing without closing doors on all the others?”
  • “What if I want to switch industries? What if I didn’t go to X school / have a high GPA? What if I’m not an engineer or high-powered lawyer?”
  • I also still get a lot of emails asking about how you actually “find” your Dream Job.

 

That’s why I’m giving a live presentation on How to Find a Dream Job. You’ll learn:

  • How most people disqualify themselves from landing a Dream Job before they even start
  • The 3 big mistakes most people make when searching for jobs
  • How you can tap into the “hidden job market” that top companies use to find top performers

I’m also going to cover deep psychological barriers that we uncovered in our Dream Job research.

This event is free, but you do have to register to receive your private invitation:

I hope to see you on Wednesday night.

  1. Wait, chips and salsa are your kryptonite?

  2. I hope you at least like chips and guacamole… which is like my pixie dust.

    I’m going to share this training because lately I’ve had a number of people coming to me for job advice, and I don’t have the time nor expertise to really help them. I’ll send them your way.

  3. What a great story!

    It is so important to value your mindset and not disqualify yourself from a potential career advancement just because of self doubt!

    Thank U

  4. As a Dream Job alum, I can tell you that Ramit’s stuff is always better than you think it’s going to be, even coming with high expectations. I strongly encourage everyone who can to attend tonight.

  5. I am SOOOOO very gutted that I missed this presentation and that I missed the Dream Job course…

    However can I please make a suggestion?

    Can you consider giving people more time to respond to the emails you send about upcoming offers/events?
    Especially when they will not be repeated.

    As the 2 events that I referenced above had very short notice periods for action (e.g. XX course/webinar/offer closes tonight)!

    I am only suggesting this because I (and I’m sure many others like me) am occasionally out all day, and so I sometimes do not get to check my emails until the following morning, at which point vital information has been missed.
    Therefore I’m asking that you please spare a thought for the fact that not all of us can be sat in front of our emails all day everyday, ready and waiting to take advantage of whatever you might have on offer, for that day only.

    Many thanks in advance for your consideration!

  6. I love reading through an article that will make people think.
    Also, thank you for allowing for me to comment!

  7. I simply could not go away your website before
    suggesting that I actually enjoyed the usual info an individual supply for your guests?
    Is gonna be back often to check out new posts
