9 Cool Jobs to Put On Your Radar

Career Discovery, Cool Jobs, Get That Job
11/12/18 - Nicole Wood

We are kicking off a new series called “9 Cool Jobs to Put On Your Radar.” Many of our clients come to us to support their journey to discover a new career path through our signature ALV Method coaching program. We’ve seen time and time again that it can be challenging to identify creative new job options that you haven’t already thought of. This series will help to get those creative juices flowing and to help you open your mind to new career possibilities. Many of these job postings will be inspired by the new chosen fields our clients have landed on through our career transition coaching. We hope you enjoy this series and find it useful!

Our clients and community are looking for unique jobs in a fun environment. These jobs should reside within organizations which prioritize people and culture and provide exciting ways to make an impact beyond the mundane 9-5. We are particularly interested in positions which don’t neatly fit into an obvious career path box (e.g., doctor, lawyer, accountant). If you know of a job that you think would be great for us to share with our community of driven career-transitioners, you can submit it here for us to consider for a future post!
