Land Your Dream Job
Let’s be honest: finding a job isn't easy.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve just graduated, or are making a career move. Finding a job can be a long, scary process that seems to run in circles. You don’t know if or when you’ll hear back from hiring managers. You wonder if the job you’re searching for is right for you, and if “the one“ is even available. You’re ready for an opportunity, but feel like no one gives you a chance.
It can be tough to understand your value to an employer.

The secret to getting there is getting started.
Fear of the unknown can keep us stuck, both personally and professionally. But nothing is going to get you farther along than deeply understanding who you are, what an employer needs and the process to make that connection.
Sure, they may see your great work, but they’re unsure how long it took you to get there. They don’t know if you are a great team member, a generous collaborator, and ultimately, if you can do your very best under pressure.
The secret? Instilling trust.
This course is not only about getting a job. It’s about replacing the unknowns with things you will now understand, so there’s less to fear! We’ll cover research, planning, writing, presenting, negotiating, and making that connection meaningful.
You have to take the time to understand the process—otherwise, you’ll never know where you might have gone wrong in the past.
In my late 20s, I was just starting my own graphic design studio. I was really afraid. So I asked a seasoned colleague his career advice. He said, “Petrula, just show up to meetings on time, return phone calls promptly, be dependable and do what you say you’re going to do.”
I thought, “It can’t be that easy,” and he smiled and said, “If you do those things, you’ll be better than 90% of designers out there.” Turns out, I just needed a nudge in the right direction.
So, I want to give you that same nudge. I want you to look at the next place you want to be and ask, “How am I going to get there?”
I’ve helped hundreds of young designers realize their potential, and now, I want to inspire you to do your best.
If you’re ready, let’s get started and get you that dream job.
