Research Assistant @ University of Michigan

I was on the fence about joining Career Launchpad because I thought the program wouldn't teach me anything dramatically different from what I already knew. A lot of the information you need about almost anything is free or cheap on the internet.

I finally decided to join after I had spent 3+ months in the recruiting process without any success. I was so engrossed in the material that I had finished the majority of the modules within a few weeks. It was surprisingly helpful to have everything laid out on one platform that I could constantly revisit.  And there was definitely a lot of content that covered topics that I would otherwise have never known about.

I was able to land my current job after 1.5 months of actively job-searching. Even now, though I landed a full-time role, I still revisit the notes I took from the Career Launchpad regularly to help guide me when I do research on other industries, ask professionals for informational interviews and more. I anticipate I will revisit the course even more when I decide to make my next career move and apply for my next job.

In retrospect, the opportunity cost of slowly gathering high quality, free information might be thousands of dollars of compensation and years of experience. You also don't know what you don't know until you're exposed to it. The Career Launchpad is an example of having most of your job-hunting needs in one place. It's great for recent grads or seniors, or those earlier in college to make yourself marketable in the workforce.

Business Development Intern at Life Length

I would rate the course at 10 and would definitely recommend it to my friends. I haven't received such insightful advice about networking from other resources like my Universities or career programs.

I used to religiously attend networking sessions and career fairs; but I never knew how to actually connect with specific people who are working in my dream professions. In retrospect I was wasting my time!

I also loved the interview modules. It showed me exactly how to craft behavioral responses so creatively and specific to the job field. Overall I've liked everything about this course -- it was elaborate yet organized.

Junior @ Notre Dame de Namur

The Career Launchpad was very helpful with valuable insights into each aspect of the process of a career path.  

What I liked most was how everything flowed so smoothly.

The resume modules were my favorites because the template of answering "why, how, and what" for each bullet point.  As someone with limited work experience, that really helped me to frame a better narrative with what I do have. Although there was a lot of content, I liked that it was split up pretty evenly. The videos were pretty well paced and compact.

The course did not just provide tools and resources helpful to launching one's career, but its preamble of assessing whether one is pursuing the right path for them was extremely insightful. It forced me to take time to think about what I actually like doing and whether it's a field I'd like to build a career in. I started thinking about and researching industries I'd like to work in based on my own interests.

I would highly recommend the program!

Data Analyst at Tiktok

I've been loving the course so far -- it has been a great help!

There are a lot of helpful resources in the program, including the resume and cover letter guide. I personally found the cover letter video very helpful because I didn't have any idea on how to make my letter to stand out.

I like how the courses are well-balanced with thorough explanations and real examples.

This course definitely helped me change my strategy with job hunting. I just started to mail the professionals, so hopefully, I'll get some good news!

Favorite module: Writing a memorable cover letter

Resident Physician in Emergency Medicine

The Punamia brothers take you through a logical progression of a hypothesis-driven, reflective process of starting and steering a career. The attention to detail is impressive.

I used some of the frameworks in my interviews for medical residency before taking a second pass through all of the material. I intend to take a third pass before my intern year starts so that I can get the ball rolling on breaking into aerospace medicine.

This program changed the way I approached interviewing for medical residency. I think the most important piece was focusing on cutting down my elevator pitch to the bare essentials and putting much more meat on the bones of my responses to behavioral questions. I noticed that when I felt more comfortable with the behavioral questions, I felt much more comfortable with the entire interview. The approach that I learned is very high-leverage, the applicant can use many of the same stories and apply them in different scenarios, depending on the question at hand.

Would definitely 10/10 recommend this course, especially a student or recent graduate early on in their career.
