This is a wholistic process of discovery that will bring you clarity you've never had before. We're going to learn about what success looks like for you. Then, we're going to help you achieve it.

Course Overview
In this course, you get 15 sections made up of 57 videos that will take you through every step of finding your true dream job and actually getting it. Through guided exercises, exclusive worksheets, storytelling, and summary sections, you will get a real, clear definition of what success looks like for you.

Every section comes with tools, resources, and advice that will give you the focus and edge you need when looking for opportunities. The lectures are full of custom introspection exercises that will help you get at your own heart, along with printable PDF worksheets on specific topics to capture all of your brilliant insights.

The course starts with step one: finding what drives, inspires, and motivates you in work. Once you land on those guiding lights, you'll hone your understanding so that you can actually build your own job description, one that you can use and send on your career search journey.

Once you understand what you want, you will learn how to talk about yourself in a way that both represents you authentically and showcases you as a superstar hire. By creating your own positioning statement and personal brand, picking up networking skills that work, and building your resume and online platforms to bring opportunity to you, you'll create a path to success for yourself.

In the home stretch of this course, you'll learn how to take all that opportunity and make it work for you. We'll give you tried-and-true interviewing techniques that help you interview companies and land you offers. We'll also give you the basics on how to negotiate offers to come off classy and level-headed, but still get what you want.

Finally, we'll sum up everything you've learned and give you an easy, repeatable action plan to make everything in this course real for you out in the world.

My mother encouraged me to, “Pick a direction and GO.” Every life experience gives you a new perspective, so you can connect with someone new. I hope the next new person is you. My variety of experience comes from an insatiable curiosity. I’ve mined qualitative and quantitative data to tell a story as a multicultural media buyer. I’ve moved to Puerto Rico, site unseen, so I could run advertising campaigns (which I knew how to do) in a language that I didn’t know. I founded a startup that enjoyed 30% growth in revenue monthly. I’ve immersed myself into the world of Data Science. I’ve managed all the product and operations at a lean, high-growth cyber security startup. I’ve been the first in-house hire and I’ve grown a team from the original founders to fifteen team members across the globe. Most recently, I’ve become a fellow at a VC firm and now get a front row seat to new technologies that are being funded in the Midwest. I’ve had great mentors who’ve helped me discover my gifts and talents. Now it is time to empower others to do the same. Let’s get started.

My work in writing, media, and marketing reaches over 500,000 unique entrepreneurs and investors a month online and through in-person teaching at General Assembly. And I've managed all of this through two core elements: career planning and voracious curiosity. It's my genuine belief that you can reach any aspiration, so long as you are prepared for the opportunity when it comes. As a teacher, I believe in giving students the hands-on experience and tools they need to define, design, and pursue their goals. As a content marketer and Director of Platform in VC, I believe value creation and talent development are the instruments of successful business outcomes. As a person, I believe in you. I broke into VC – an industry with 800 firms, fewer employees total than Accenture, and less than 10% female representation – in my early twenties. That's on top of building my own branding and graphic design business, career coaching, and pursuing all of my extra-vocational passions. If I can do that, so can you. I aspire to give every striving, hungry doer out there the lessons I've learned and the hacks I've engineered to grow into their best selves. I hope to count you among them.

Show more Show less Alida Miranda-Wolff Career Coach, Full-Stack Marketer & Venture Capital Director 4.5 Instructor Rating 31 Reviews 127 Students 1 Course I build and manage the brand, partnerships, investor base, and portfolio company growth for the most active early-stage VC investor in the Midwest as the Director of Platform at Hyde Park Angels. My work in writing, media, and marketing reaches over 500,000 unique entrepreneurs and investors a month online and through in-person teaching at General Assembly. And I've managed all of this through two core elements: career planning and voracious curiosity. It's my genuine belief that you can reach any aspiration, so long as you are prepared for the opportunity when it comes. As a teacher, I believe in giving students the hands-on experience and tools they need to define, design, and pursue their goals. As a content marketer and Director of Platform in VC, I believe value creation and talent development are the instruments of successful business outcomes. As a person, I believe in you. I broke into VC – an industry with 800 firms, fewer employees total than Accenture, and less than 10% female representation – in my early twenties. That's on top of building my own branding and graphic design business, career coaching, and pursuing all of my extra-vocational passions. If I can do that, so can you. I aspire to give every striving, hungry doer out there the lessons I've learned and the hacks I've engineered to grow into their best selves. I hope to count you among them.

My mother encouraged me to, “Pick a direction and GO.” Every life experience gives you a new perspective, so you can connect with someone new. I hope the next new person is you. My variety of experience comes from an insatiable curiosity. I’ve mined qualitative and quantitative data to tell a story as a multicultural media buyer. I’ve moved to Puerto Rico, site unseen, so I could run advertising campaigns (which I knew how to do) in a language that I didn’t know. I founded a startup that enjoyed 30% growth in revenue monthly. I’ve immersed myself into the world of Data Science. I’ve managed all the product and operations at a lean, high-growth cyber security startup. I’ve been the first in-house hire and I’ve grown a team from the original founders to fifteen team members across the globe. Most recently, I’ve become a fellow at a VC firm and now get a front row seat to new technologies that are being funded in the Midwest. I’ve had great mentors who’ve helped me discover my gifts and talents. Now it is time to empower others to do the same. Let’s get started.

I broke into VC – an industry with 800 firms, fewer employees total than Accenture, and less than 10% female representation – in my early twenties. That's on top of building my own branding and graphic design business, career coaching, and pursuing all of my extra-vocational passions. If I can do that, so can you. I aspire to give every striving, hungry doer out there the lessons I've learned and the hacks I've engineered to grow into their best selves. I hope to count you among them.
