You’d love to be kicking ass in your career, but frankly you’re lost as fuck.

You don’t know what you want and you’re freaking out.

Or you do know what you want, but you have no idea how to go after it.

You feel frustrated, paralyzed, overwhelmed, and a little bit stabby.

You want to finally get your career shit together.



Career Rookie is an online career course to help you figure out what the hell you want and how to get after it.
It will help you get clear, address your fear, make a plan, and move into action.
It’s a shot of encouragement, a kick in the ass, and a loving push. Because you’re stuck and, dammit, you’d rather not be.




You and me. 8 weeks to career clarity.

This course is full of the straight-talking tough love you need to get clear and move into action.

It will help you work through the fear and overwhelm so that you can get closer to what you want.

It ain’t what you learned from your guidance counsellor or from any aptitude test or leadership assessment. We’re going to take an unconventional and creative approach. It’s fun-loving and deeply introspective, with a side of sassy snark.


Sip it slowly like your first pumpkin spice latte of the season. Or mainline it like your Monday morning coffee.

Each week you’ll get a new video and workbook to help you move closer to a feel-good career. Follow along with the class week by week, or take your time and go at your own pace, or jump ahead and wolf it down in big hungry gulps. You’ll have access to all of the materials once the course starts and also when it’s finished so you can go back again and again.

Either way, brew up a big ol’ cuppa joe or a pot of your favourite herbal tea. This is career navigation that you can do in your jammies. #WIN


Career Rookie is currently FULL, but join the interest list — the magic will return in Spring/Summer 2018.

I’m Sarah Vermunt, the gal behind Careergasm. I help people figure out what they want so they can do work they love. Me and my work have been featured at Forbes, Entrepreneur, Inc., Huffington PostFinancial Times, Fortune, Tech Vibes, Flare Magazine, Global News, The Chicago Tribune, Maclean’s, Cityline, The Social, Monster, Workopolis, CTVCBC, Toronto Star, Globe and Mailand lots of other cool places.

I’m a former biz prof, and every month my career advice gets pumped to 30+ million homes across North America. This isn’t my first rodeo.

I also know what it’s like to feel stuck and (more importantly) get un-stuck. I’ve made some pretty badass career moves of my own:

* After graduation I snagged a job in a totally unrelated field. Nailed it.

* I quit a stable gig with awesome pay, benefits, and pension to take a chance on something new.

* I quit my PhD after 4 years and 93 pages into my dissertation. Ballsy.

* I left a six-figure career track to take a risk on building my own biz. Spoiler alert: It paid off.

Through all of this I’ve been scared shitless, but did it anyway. You can too.



This is one badass career course. But if for some reason it’s not your jam, I’ll give you your money back. It’s that simple. (But I know you’re gonna dig it.)
