Project Description

 

 

 

 What is our process?

 

We ensure you figure out your ideal path BEFORE the job search. By going through our steps with on-going reflection, we guide you to find the career path that's right for you. Then, we coach you to land your ideal role!

 

How does it work?

 

We're not just another career tool.

 

Here's our secret sauce.

We're combining the fundamentals of coaching with the reality of job search delivered to you through an easy to use web platform.

 

 

Check out our success stories.

 

"Through the Woken process, I was able to deep dive into finding my strengths and interests. As I continued the process, I felt more and more confident that I could find a way out of my career and into something that I loved. After taking the process at my own pace, I landed a job that I am SO excited to get started in! I don't think I could have confidently made this huge career change without the guidance of the Woken team and process. I would highly recommend Woken to anyone still figuring out where they belong in the workforce."

- Holly

 

“I am already feeling more hope than I have felt in a long time.”

- Molly

 

"WOW. What an emotional, inspiring, successful, self-reflective past 7 months it’s been. When I first reached out to Rachel, I was at a point of a complete loss. I was unhappy with my job but didn’t know whether it was the company, the position, or my day to day work. I knew I wanted a change, but I had no idea what I wanted to do. I didn’t even know what I was good at anymore, or even what made me happy. I needed to re-find my passion, and Rachel has been an amazing guide and coach throughout this entire process."

- Alanna

 

"It feels good to be able to proactively tackle and work through a series of processes that will get me closer to my goal.  I actually feel like I am taking action, rather than idly (and pessimistically) wondering about my future."

- Eric

 

If it can work for Holly, Alanna, Eric & Molly, it can work for you.

 

What we believe in

We've been at the mercy of lackluster career resources, and quite frankly, we think it's unacceptable. We believe every single professional deserves the opportunity to explore their interests and find a path that is both suitable and exciting to them...and we know its feasible because we've helped clients do just that! It is finally time to ensure every professional can take advantage of this process and pursue their very own career exploration journey. 

 

We need your help to get there

We have spent a full year testing a prototype and proving our concept. Now, we're ready to develop a killer web platform so that you have an easy-to-use workspace to track your ongoing learning and reflections. Any support will directly go towards the software development of our product to ensure we can deliver a top-notch customer experience to you.
