In case I missed anything, here's some frequently asked questions...
Well… let’s answer this with a few more questions.
• Are you a master’s student, or recent graduate, who will be applying to jobs soon?
• Are you stuck in your job search, with no idea of how or where to start?
• Are you already applying to jobs but not having the success you’d hoped for?
If you answered YES to any of these, then Beyond Grad School’s platform could be a great solution for helping you move forward in your job search, so you can get paid for your education and training.

There’s a lot of career advice online you could wade through, but I’m guessing you’ve already done that and you’re frustrated with information overload (kind of like the awkward family conversations where everyone wants to give “helpful” advice about your future…).
This 5-step career transition process is unique to Beyond Graduate School and based on 7 years of research.
I’ve taken all that I’ve learnt working with hundreds of graduate students and compiled it into a clear system to follow so that you can avoid frustrating (and time-consuming) trial and error.
I totally understand job searching while doing your master’s can feel overwhelming — especially when you’ve got coursework, internships, and your career to build.
But let’s think about what’s “overwhelming” here.
Typically, overwhelm happens when we don’t have a step-by-step, proven process to help us move forward in a job search. Our career training platform works exactly BECAUSE the job search process is overwhelming without it.
You won’t be doing a million things at once in the Training Platform.
You’ll have on-demand access to answers about your job search, whenever you need support. You’ll use the lessons to help you navigate challenges in your job search, and gradually get breakthroughs that will have you eager to keep moving forward.
When a job search feels messy and unknown, our platform and job search strategies will help you keep moving forward with purpose.
Put our proven strategies to work, and your job search process will be transformed, preparing you for career success.
