Start strong with everything you need

Zero Work kicks off with a single-day online ignition event (similar to a hackathon). It basically teaches you how to get the job you want, quickly and efficiently.*

*Plus, if you don’t like the program after Ignition, you can easily leave!

More specifically, you’ll learn how to design a perfect resume, network with confidence, find hidden opportunities, write a convincing cover letter, hold engaging conversations, know what you want, and so much more.

This isn’t school. You’ll be taking real career steps and getting real results.

“Zero reminds me of learning and passion outside of school. It reminds me of why I am pursuing my future career. I’ve learned how to take my passion and turn it into something more, which is inspiring!”

Get an entire term of support

Ignition is followed by weekly Refuelings; hour long sessions where you’ll hear from career experts, get new tactics for improving your game, and learn what your peers have been trying.

Zero Work ends with a Summit to look back at the awesome work you’ll have done, then come together to help everyone who’s struggling. You won’t get left behind even if you get unlucky!
