Getting a job takes more than you think
Finding and landing your ideal first job takes more than just a good education, a resume, an internet connection, and an enthusiastic attitude. Many would have you believe it’s not complicated to launch your career, but that’s a myth. Today’s job seekers face a completely different reality than their parents or even siblings did.
Let’s bust that myth with some facts
About 80% of available jobs are never advertised
On average, more than 100 people apply for any given job and only 20% get an interview
Networking results in a job 3x as often as applying directly does
50% of hiring managers feel recent grads are NOT prepared for a full-time job
To find your best career options and master how to promote yourself to future employers, you need a winning game plan. That’s where Spearmint comes in. We’re not a typical career counselor who just refines your resume and cover letter. We are a career catalyst. We don’t come from an HR or a college prep background, we come from the halls of corporate America with a proven track record of making successful careers and delivering results.
Passion is the result of success, not a prerequisite
We believe passion is the result of identifying your interests and values and honing the skills to propel you forward.
When combined with what Malcolm Gladwell said in his book Outliers, “Ten thousand hours is the magic number of greatness,” the result is professional passion.
Spearmint’s career-coaching methodology is founded on the belief that understanding what makes you tick will lead to a successful and fulfilling career. We provide personalized, one-on-one coaching services to help you discover your path and purpose, then develop a game plan to market your skills, ace the interview, and land the job you want.
