Are Job Boards Really The Best?
While we don’t want to discourage you from using job boards entirely, we also want to make sure that’s not your only method of application. Why? For the simple reason that applying for a job through a standard job board is very rarely successful. We are certainly not saying that it can’t work. We are just saying that you are better off using a diverse strategy. It’s like if you were looking for the love of your life and you restricted your search to online applications. We’re not saying that won’t work (many people have found love on bumble or tinder), but why rule out bars, coffee shops, your workplace or your cute next door neighbor.
In this program, we will help you understand what you should consider leveraging your network and how to do it effectively to get your dream job! We offer a high touch and personalized service so that you feel prepared to ask for what you want and need in your unique situation. Our experienced career specialists will work with you to understand exactly what your compensation goals are and to help you craft a plan and messaging to reach those goals.

I truly can't explain what an amazing job the Ama La Vida team has done with this program. The course is nothing short of excellence. The course has helped in more ways than i could have imagined. It helped surface my true passion and refine my values and career aspirations, while giving me the confidence and support to make a meaningful change. Previously, I had felt that it was too late to make a change, but the program made me realize that it isn't too late and empowered me to get out there and go for it!
The program was very supportive, informative and helpful during my career transition. Personally I was looking to make a change but wasn't sure which direction to head. I discovered that the exercises in the program were like someone handing me the keys to my own future. Ultimately it was up to me to decide what I wanted to do and how to get there, but the various questions, scenarios and quotes encouraged me to think and research in a different manner.
What a crucial time this came into my life. This program allowed me to assess not only the passions that get me out of bed every morning, but also what skills allow me to offer my absolute best self to the world. I am a firm believer that a society where everyone does what they love is the happiest and most successful society, and this program furthers that goal, one individual at a time. I am grateful that I was given the program to learn about myself before I begin a new chapter in life.
It could not have been a better time in my life to have met the CEO Nicole, and have her explain the power that Ama La Vida has on people. She wasn't lying!! I've seen a significant change in myself since the day I signed up for the program. I've been working in the corporate world for 5 years now, and it's so refreshing to stop and really take time to reflect on who you are as a person, and understand what your purpose is (gifts, values, passions). AH! I could go on and on - you must try it for yourself! I was fortunate enough to have coaching sessions with Katie and she is absolutely amazing. She truly has a gift with her ability to inspire and motivate you. After my session with Katie I instantly felt energized and ready to make changes! The coaches at Ama La Vida genuinely care about your future and will do everything in their power to get you where you want to be. I highly recommend Ama La Vida - you will NOT regret it.
