UNDECIDED? READ WHAT OUR PAST PARTICIPANTS SAID:

 

Charles - May 2010 class (landed new position 3 months after Crash course): "The Crash course was a game changer for me. First class instructors, current curriculum and outstanding practice – and all were wrapped in a faith-based approach. My offerings have clarity, meaning and purpose."

Jan - October 2010 class (employed in less than 2 months after Crash course): “I had been employed for over 12 years, so I was more unprepared for a job search in the atmosphere of 2010 than I could have ever imagined.The "Crash Course" was very comprehensive and the class facilitators were friendly, supportive and skilled.I would recommend the course to anyone in a job search who is unfamiliar with the "rules of the game" in this difficult market.”

Anne - Participated in the October 2010 class: The Crossroads Crash Course was the kick-in-the-pants that I needed to invigorate my job search. The compressed time schedule meant that I HAD to do the self-work that was necessary to get the most out of the class. After every class I felt better about myself, my qualifications, skills and abilities. While I haven't found a position yet, I am confident that one is out there and that I now have the job-seeking talents to find it and get it.The Crash Course was the best thing that I could have done for my job search."
