Career Launch Academy

Land the job or internship you want, without having connections or “the best” resume.

Whether you have zero or 200 professional contacts, Career Launch Academy will help you grow your network while building up your networking skills to help you land your next internship or job. 

Career Launch Academy is a Networking Bootcamp that helps students develop relationships with professionals in their career field. The program will help students develop new connections, reconnect with existing connections, learn how to set up and conduct Career Conversations, and how to potentially turn those conversations into jobs or internships. 

Who Should Join:

  • Motivated individuals seeking to improve their career opportunities and possibilities
  • People who want to build their network but are unsure how
  • Students looking to develop life-long skills that are essential to building a successful career
  • People looking to explore the careers of their interests
  • Students who lack self-confidence when it comes to their career
  • Students who want to learn to overcome not having “the best” resume
  • Students who feel beaten down by the online job application process

What You’ll Learn:

  • How to identify professionals at the companies and/or organizations you’d love to work for, and exactly how to land a meeting with them
  • How to reconnect with people you’ve met to inquire about their career and/or be introduced to people in their network
  • Exactly what you need to do to prepare for one of these meetings
  • How to effectively conduct the meeting, follow up, and keep the relationship alive
  • How to turn that meeting into a job or internship

How the Program Works:
