whats-a-careergasmA careergasm happens when your work feels good. Like, really good. Like you and your work belong together. And you can bet your ass it feels as good as it sounds.

A careergasm leaves you feeling happy and satisfied with your work. Not every second, but most of the time. You’ve got a hot date every Monday morning, and you show up over and over again because it just feels right. Mmmhmm. #slowjams

This is a place to help you find your way to feel-good work. Welcome. So glad you’re here.

I’m Sarah Vermunt, Careergasm Founder and the author of Careergasm and Career Rookie. I created Careergasm to help people pursue work that thrills and delights.

I also serve up BS-free career advice for readers at Forbes, Inc., Entrepreneur, Fortune, and lots of other cool places. Nobody is more surprised by this than me. I swear a lot, wear glitter nail polish, and refuse to drink the corporate Kool-Aid.

I help people figure out what the hell they want so they can quit jobs they hate and do work they love. And you know how that all started?

I had a breakdown in the middle of a crowded Starbucks. Yup. Sexy.

I was working as a professor at a business school, and was hunched over my laptop at Starbucks, working on some research. I HATED conducting research. One day I just couldn’t do it anymore. Not for another second. I had a big, fat, embarrassing meltdown right in the middle of Starbucks. The kicker? I was teaching and researching workplace happiness. #irony

I gave notice the next day. A career as a professor was not for me. Since then I’ve devoted my life to helping people quit jobs they hate, to getting the hell out of Dodge when they just can’t take it anymore, and to helping people choose careers they can fall crazy drunk in love with.

I’d like to help you get unstuck and figure some stuff out. Working with me is like a warm hug and a kick in the ass. If you’re here you probably need both. Here’s how I can help.
