Do you need help working out what's next in your career?
Do you know what you want to do next, but you just don't know how?
If there was a systematic, step-by-step process to answer both those questions...
Would you use it?
Here’s why anything short of an emphatic “yes” could cost you time and frustration
For nearly twenty years I've worked with career changers from all walks of life to help them create their career strategy and take the next step to getting the job they want.
Whether that's breaking through to the next level, escaping corporate or changing career completely, I've seen pretty much everything that works (and a whole lot more that doesn't), and it's my absolute belief that following the process set out in Career Maximiser is the most efficient way to identify your next career move and take the next step to achieving it.
But it's not for everyone. This is not some quick fix where you fill out a short questionnaire and an algorithm tells you what job you should be doing.
The course is going to ask you for an investment of time and commitment - you know, the stuff that's needed to do just about anything properly and get lasting results.
As you work step-by-step through the course you'll gather the evidence you need to convince potential employers that you're the person they're looking for. You'll get the clarity and the confidence to take charge of your career and to start making the changes you want to see.
At the end of the process I don't want you to get a job offer. I want you to be choosing between multiple offers - all for work that you're genuinely interested in. If you're prepared to follow the steps laid out in the course then this can be the outcome for you - as it has been for many others who I've worked with in the past.

The last module of the course focuses on preparing for interviews. We were lucky enough to get recruitment guru Elizabeth Bird to share her expertise on the videos.
Lizzie has recruited for Fortune 500 companies across the Financial Services, Consulting and Energy sectors. Not only has she recruited for these companies, she's also designed the actual recruitment processes the companies use AND trained their interviewing managers on how to use them. Quite literally, she is **The Boss** of recruitment!
In between shooting the videos I grabbed Lizzie and asked her opinion on how important it is that candidates do some structured careers thinking before approaching potential employers.
You'll hear me talk a lot about preparing, doing the groundwork, doing the research, and all that stuff which can sometimes just feel like H.A.R.D. work. Well, here's the reason why it's all worth it...

Ryan, Mohammad and Ken talk about their experiences of using the Maximiser course...
The online course and the exercises were really helpful to me. They allowed me to better understand my capabilities, values and goals, build a better understanding of where I want to be in 5, 10 and 20 years’ time, and the steps I need to take to make that possible.
The Maximiser course helped me to define the skills I am good at and enjoy using, my interests and core values. I was then able to understand what kind of career and work environment will be right for me. I highly recommend the Maximiser course to everyone who needs guidance through the career decision-making journey.
The Maximiser course helped me to reflect on what I really wanted from my next career move and my future career goals. I watched the interview videos to help me prepare for an intensive assessment day for a job interview and I was successful. I'm looking forward to starting a job that I really want with an organisation which has values that match my own. Thank you.
If I'd not gone on the course with Jane I may not have got my current job. She's fantastic!
Here’s the Number One Reason to grab your place on the Career Maximiser course right now…
The best time to start your career planning was yesterday, the next best time is today!
I want you to stop living for the weekend, to stop dreading Mondays, to stop boring your partner or your friends about how miserable you are at work!
Imagine being so into what you do that you totally lose track of time and the day goes by in the blink of an eye.
It might not happen overnight, but together we can make a plan, and from there you can start to take control of your career again.
As seen in:
The first two modules of the course can be done quite quickly as they are very much about self-reflection. If you put time aside you can probably get these exercises done over a weekend, but you might want to give yourself a bit longer than that - as to really get the best results you may want reflect over a period of time. The third module is a bit different and is there to support you while you make connections and applications. So that's more open-ended - think of it as a resource you can call on as and when you need it.
Once you have completed the course you can work with one of our experienced coaches to refine any part of your career strategy that you think needs more work - your CV, your networking strategy, job targets, etc, etc.
You will have a one hour session, delivered remotely (e.g. via Skype or Zoom) that you can arrange at a time that is convenient to you.
When you sign up for the course you will get an email with a contact address for all of your support queries. just use this address to get in touch to arrange your session, or if you have lost it you can use the contact form on the Career Farm website
High quality career coaching can be hugely beneficial; I've worked one-to-one with career changers from all sorts of backgrounds and the results can be exceptional - life changing!
The issues are: working one-to-one with a coach can be expensive, and how do you know which coach to choose when you're not even sure what you need help with?!
These are two of the main reasons why I designed the Career Maximiser course. It will guide you step-by-step through all of the fundamentals of making a career change. If you're a self-starter, then the course plus the informal support group may be all you need. but if you feel you need more help with a specific issue, the knowledge you gain from completing the course will reduce the time you need to spend with your coach – so you'll get the best possible return from your overall investment.
There is no test or quiz on earth that has the sophistication to precisely identify the perfect career for you. Sometimes these types of tests can give you ideas, but only you can really work out what you want and what you have to offer.
Your career is too important for other people to tell you what to do. The Career Maximiser course will give you a structure to uncover the answers for yourself, taking into account all the important elements of your professional and personal life.
Obtaining this level of clarity and self-knowledge will mean that when you are interviewing you will have compelling reasons to be considered for that job or career, and you will have the crucial evidence you need to demonstrate what you have to offer. This is much MUCH more powerful than applying for roles because an algorithm thought it might be the right thing for you.
The Report pulls together all of your answers to the various exercises, giving you a permanent record of the work you've done to establish your career strategy. It also contains explanations of why your answers to the various exercises are so important when you are making future career decisions.
Your access to the online course starts as soon as you complete the checkout. From then, it will last for 12 months. However all of the course materials (exercises, transcripts, videos, audios, etc) are downloadable for you personal use - so effectively you have lifetime access to the course materials.
You're ready to make a big change in your life, I want to help you achieve it. Nothing gives me a bigger buzz than hearing about the successes of my clients. However I also understand that sometimes things don’t work out. If the course doesn’t meet your expectations then I will refund the purchase price to you in full. All that I ask is that you give the course a chance. For this reason the money-back guarantee lasts for 30 days from the date of purchase. If you’ve made the decision to join the course then I'm guessing you’re motivated to get started, and 30 days should give you plenty of time to get stuck in. There’s some small print relating to exchange rates, etc (and you can read that here), but in essence the message is that if you've bought the course and it isn’t right for you I will give you your money back.
