We founded Work You Want in early 2018 to inspire and empower skilled individuals to successfully advance their careers.
We, the co-founders, Briera and Christian, have for years been growing and reshaping our own careers – Briera in international development, finance and social entrepreneurship and Christian as Entrepreneur and Company Builder in the healthcare sector. While we have followed very different career paths, we realized that our approaches to career development are similar and have been highly effective for the both of us. From this realization Work You Want was born, with the desire to share our acquired know-how with you.
Why? We know that 50% of young professionals, male and female alike, are not happy in their current job. Some of them are not satisfied because they want “more” – more responsibility, more autonomy, more challenge, and, yes, more money. Others want to do something completely different – they lack a sense of purpose, feel undervalued or are unhappy with their current boss or hierarchy. Others want to move abroad, boost their career and “live a new experience”. While each individual case is unique, all are unified in striving to find work that is truly satisfying.
We at Work You Want have had these experiences too – frequently doing all the most difficult changes at the same time, including changing role, company, industry AND country in one go. We know how challenging this can be, but we also know we will do it again and again without hesitation. This is what has provided both of us true work satisfaction over the years and we believe it’s a model worth promoting.
As we built the Work You Want team, we recruited only individuals who have also been through these same experiences. Our goal is not to provide you with access to professional coaches – it is to provide you with access to professionals with their own careers who can coach you from a very personal and practical perspective – based on their own experiences coupled with the best methodology and tools available on the market.
Our goal? To inspire and empower skilled individuals to successfully advance their careers as they desire. All of our product offerings are targeted to do exactly this – provide concrete and practical guidance to discover, find, and get the work you really want. With inspiration. With tools. With Tutorials. With 1:1 mentoring. With community.
Our approach is not the only one on the market but we believe it is the best.And judging by the feedback from our alumni, our approach can unquestionably help you succeed. So: Let’s do this!
