Job searching can be a scattered experience, to say the least...

After missing all of the upside of the Bay Area tech bubble, I graduated with a PhD in 2002, right after the bubble popped.

Later, in 2010, I graduated with an MBA in Finance in the Chicago area, right after the financial crisis and meltdown.

Two cases of great timing.

So, you can either time your trading based on when I might finish my MS CS and any future degrees...

Or you can learn from my experiences in searching for jobs in economic downturns, while changing careers and geographies.

I have searched for jobs at large, multinational corporations, accelerating growth companies, and startups, across a dazzling array of industries.

The goal for this course is to explain how to manage your job search, in good times and in bad.

The right tools and strategies can save you time and heartache.

We've been in a bull market for a long time. How long could you go without a job? It can be much longer than you think.
