Are you ready for a change?
Greetings, Ninja!

New jobs don’t come easy. The search itself often feels like it warrants a W-2.

Meanwhile, the hiring process continues to be a complex ritual, shrouded in mystery.

What if we demystified things a bit, starting with your application? What if you knew which keywords, phrases, and file formats would get you past resume-screening bots? What if you knew how to use your interviews to suss out (and avoid) bad bosses? And what if we told you not to overthink your resignation letter to your current boss?

Takes the edge off a bit, doesn’t it?

A career transition is a job. But, with the right resources, it can be exciting, fruitful, empowered work.
