"This course provides you with an insight into the building blocks that comprise you as a person: you'll learn what your skills, values, and areas of knowledge are. You'll learn that these aren't just buzzwords, and you'll learn how to use them to determine what career paths will work best for you. You'll be introduced to some different theories and writings - you probably won't agree with all of them, but they'll allow you to think more critically about yourself, your career, and your life goals. You'll get a powerful blend of nuggets of wisdom and concrete resources with which to job-hunt. Above all, you'll develop the tools to empower yourself: to have faith in your values, and to use them to pursue a career you'll genuinely find fulfilling."

"I honestly think this would be of use to an enormous amount of my peer group. It’s different to what I experienced at university because it pays more attention to mental health"

Sam, University of Oxford graduate

What young people across the UK are saying about the course

"I thought it was a refreshing break from traditional careers advice...

Sophie, University of Bristol

...I'm sure that the awareness of my strengths that this course has given me will be invaluable throughout my career journey. I particularly enjoyed the way in which the course gradually moved from a grounding in more overarching, philosophical principles and ideas, towards a personalised 'self-inventory'. I think that the course's beginnings leant these findings at the end a certain gravitas, and helped me to understand how an attentiveness to my own strengths and values might lead, more broadly, to a fulfilling career journey. I also also found the selected materials really useful (some of them really resonated with me!)."

"Nothing like this is available at my university...

Jai, University of Oxford

...in terms of really digging deep into what jobs would suit my skills or attributes and values."

"I found the course really helpful in terms of reassuring me that taking a step back and approaching careers more philosophically was sensible - I really didn't need to rush into something...

Finn, University of Cambridge

"...It also helped me to think more broadly about the types of careers I could find fulfilling, and to consider my desire to help people more carefully (in terms of the different careers which that can be done through, not dismissing it!). 'I really enjoyed talking about philosophical theories as a framework for life - something I think is too often skimmed over in careers guidance. Particularly in terms of ideas I've thought deeply about but not been able to express."

"I found this to be a novel and refreshing take to career advice. A process that is usually cold, calculated, and alienating, was revitalised...

Josh, University of Newcastle

"...I really appreciated the more emotionally intuitive approach to considering a future career. I thoroughly enjoyed the esoteric references to philosophy and literature used throughout the course in order to illustrate points made about emotional fulfillment and wellbeing.'

"The course was very helpful in helping me to identify what a rewarding career means to me specifically...

Christie, Heriot-Watt University

...I also thought the course was helpful for showing me it’s okay not to know exactly what I want to do, and that it’s okay to take time to really think about this. I think lots of younger people feel very pressured to make choices they don’t like without thinking about what’s best for them. The course is very strange compared to everything else. There is a focus on readings and a range of material that make you think of different parts of career planning. It prioritises improving your thinking around careers rather than telling you which career to pursue.'

"The course opened my eyes to another way of looking at the future and my journey towards a career...

Emily, Durham University

...Like how the path I take is just as, if not more, important than the end goal. I found the Khormanoupka document very useful too, as it is quite a unique concept when compared with other career advice services. It is useful for helping you develop a mentality of shaping your career around yourself and what your skills are, rather than shaping yourself around a career."

"The experience has enabled me to look at my current situation with objectivity and calmness, which is something that I sometimes struggled with before...

Maria, University of Glasgow

...I think this course will benefit anybody who puts a lot of pressure on themselves. It has opened my mind to different, perhaps unconventional, career paths that I wouldn't have considered before."

"It has reshaped how I perceive career planning...

Shona, University of Oxford

...It’s a comforting process to go through in advance of a scary, unknown, and probably clumsy part of one’s life. It’s more than just a careers advice course, but a pre-emptive encouragement to make wise decisions."

"I found the course extremely useful. I am seeking a career change and this has helped me to refine my options. Most importantly it also gives me hope and confidence that I will eventually be able to find the right opportunities...

James, University of Manchester

...This course challenges norms in career searching. It provides the personalised framework upon which someone should build their career, through increasing their self-awareness. It concludes with practical ways that this framework can be applied to begin moving in the right direction and setting yourself out from the crowd. This was new to me but really encourages you to discover the ideas for yourself."

"This programme offers a refreshing way to think about careers, work, and even life that I've not experienced before with the current services...

Jasmin, University of Warwick

...It explores various aspects of your personality, strengths and personal values and encourages you to question - what are my priorities? What more do I want out of my career? I really believe that exploring and really questioning the bigger 'why' about what you want to do in life and how you want to invest your time could prove very beneficial for young people. Additionally, some of the really powerful concepts that I got to learn have been so impact in my personal life. I'm excited to see it grow and for more young people to take advantage of this opportunity."

"It has been a pleasure to deconstruct careers fears and learn about myself along the way. I will not forget the lessons I have learned, as I know that I can use them to navigate the beginning and end of my career. The tools acquired are immeasurable in their value. I feel less intimidated by the future and more excited for it. You can do this course without having any idea of what you want to do, and that's more than fine. You will learn a lot… It really felt like a step in the right direction."

Kenza, University of Leicester

FAQ

  • When does the course start and finish?

    You decide when you start, thereafter the entire course is gradually delivered in sections over 20 days. This delivery pace allows time for reflection and to help you keep on top of the practical tasks. So, 20 days is the quickest timeframe the course can be completed in. This being said, you may want to spread it out over a longer time-period. That is totally up to you. If you opt for the follow-up 1-to-1 coaching element as well, you can book a time with me at the end of the 20 days which works for you.

  • What if I am unhappy with the course?

    Firstly, try it out for a full 4 weeks. Most participants will be gaining productive insights and results right from the start, so a full month is plenty of time to explore all the content, complete all the tasks, and finish your Khormanoupka. Still, if you complete all the work but still don't feel like you have gained a strong understanding of your strengths and how you can use them to find fulfilling career opportunities right away, email the completed tasks and you will receive a full refund.

  • I am looking to change careers not start on my journey – will this help me?

    Absolutely, this course is for career-changers as well as those beginning on their journey.

  • I don’t have a degree – will this be an obstacle?

    Whilst the course references university students, it is designed for any young person wanting to start a fulfilling career journey sooner.

  • You mention ‘young people’ as a target audience - what age-range is this course suited to then?

    The course’s content and learning objectives have been designed for young people in their late teens to early thirties. This doesn’t mean it won’t be effective for those who sit just outside this range – if you are excited by the sound of the course: go for it!

  • What’s a ‘Khormanoupka’?

    The Khormanoupka is a document unique to this course. It is designed to enable course participants to apply the knowledge gained throughout in a way that enables them to search for and identify fulfilling career opportunities (based on their strengths and preferences). The full story behind the name is revealed at the end of the course!

  • How intellectually challenging is the course content?

    The course engages with short, clearly presented concepts, ideas, stories, images, and academic research. This content has been selected to encourage varied ways of thinking about careers. Whilst thought-provoking and eye-opening, the ideas are presented and explored in a clear manner.
