Career Catapult

Catapult your career towards a dream job in up to 4 months without wasting unnecessary time & energy

Maximize your chances for getting a dream job in up to 4 months 

I don't want you to jump to any hasty conclusions. 
Rather, I want you to answer following questions for yourself first: 

💭 Have you ever tough what are you missing out if you're staying at a job which gives you stomach pain each morning?
💭 What is the price of sticking to job that doesn't fulfil your expectations (in developmental, health and/or financial terms)?
💭 How does your dream job look like? 
💭 What is currently preventing you to reach a dream job? 

What is a Career Catapult?

Career Catapult is a program created based on 16+ years of experience with a proven methodology that equips you will key skills needed for your career level up to happen. Successful work with 20+ job seeking clients from whole SEE region in my first year after creating Game of Jobs proves this.   

But, be careful. Career Catapult isn't a magic wand and I'm not a magician, simply your Career Strategist who shows my clients proven steps towards a dream career. My clients on mid & top level positions who implement learned actions on average find a better job in up to 4 months.

After 16+ years in corporate world dealing with strategic HR topics (mainly Talent Acquisition & Employer branding), I'm well equipped and ready to help you reach your dream job.

Most common Q&As 

Is there a guarantee that I'll find a dream job in up to 4 months?

As a true Career Strategist I will never give you false promises. 4 months is the average time my clients on top management level find a better job, after we start working together. For mid management level clients, average is ~3 months. 

In case I think I can help you, I'll will give my absolute best to help you achieve planned goal(s), but responsibility for achieving this goal is fully yours. Reason for this is very simple. For example, if your aim is to find a new job, realization of this goal depends on various factors, many of which are simply our of your or mine control. Some of those factors are:

🌍 macroeconomic situation in Croatia, surrounding countries or globally

👀 qualities of other candidates on the job market competing for the same role

💨 organization’s decision to withdraw the need for vacancy fulfillment or change its propositions

🔋 your physical or mental health during the selection process

⌚ availability of all stakeholders involved in all selection stages

🔌 technical and/or logistical challenges

😇 Vis major

Due to this and similar reasons, as a Career Strategist I can not accept individual and legal responsibility for final realization of your goal(s), but I can teach you all you need to know to maximize your chances for getting a better job.
 

What if I need to miss some lecture?

Regular and active participation is strongly encouraged. Still, if you missed a lecture, during a whole duration of Career Catapult you will be eligible to attend pre-defined consultation sessions 2 times. Those will be organized as a separate on-line slots where all who skipped some session will be able to join and receive summary of key information they missed.  

Any limitations who can join Career Catapult?

Anyone eager to find a dream job and learn what it takes to strategically guide your career is eager to join the program. Phone screening will be conducted with all candidates who apply in order to confirm their eligibility and right motivation for the program. Unemployed persons are also eligible to attend.

Can I pay in installments? Do I get any discount if I pay at once?

General rule is that payment is transferred at once before the start of the program. In exceptional 1to1 cases payment in 2 installments can be agreed upon (1st installment before the start and 2nd at the middle of the program). In case of one-off payment 5% discount on standard fee will be applied.

What is the process after I sign up to join the program?

I'll give you a call first and share a BIG thank you for your trust. Will then discuss all needed details and I'll send you invoice to cover the payment. After payment is received, you'll get Zoom calls invitations and access details. Materials will be provided prior to each module to go through them and additional exercises will be distributed in between modules.    

What if someone else from my current company also applies and sees I look for another job?

As an organizer of Career Catapult I have overview of applicants.  I clearly track all interested applicants and can prevent such situation in most cases. For example, if two candidates from same company or reporting line apply, in this case I may suggest "first come first serve" model. As I plan to conduct Career Catapult session repeatedly (e.g. twice a year), I might suggest to attend during next iteration. Or, one might join Zoom calls without camera and with pseudonym instead of a real name. Still, I can't guarantee a full discretion or know in advance which participants might know each other. Still, as I plan to host participants from whole SEE region, chances for such scenario are quite low. 

Why can't I pay directly on the website with my card?

Direct internet payments are planned to be implemmented from next itteration of Career Catapult. For this time, there was simply not enough time to condict all needed logicstics. But trust me, I will, as on line payments simplify life for both of us 🙂.

How much time in total do I need to invest ?

On top of 9 consecutive Thursday modules (21 hours of formal lectures), you’ll on average need additional 30-60 minutes per week to deal with practical exercises in between modules, which is highly suggestible.

Is program more for active job seekers or already employed persons passively thinking of a better career?

Both. But, currently employed mid&top managers who passively seek for more adequate opportunity will in my oppinion be able to afford the needed invesment more easily abd extract the most of it.
