“Ninety percent of adults spend half their waking lives doing things they would rather not be doing at places they would rather not be. Think of the social, emotional, and perhaps even economic waste that this statistic represents.” – Barry Schwartz
We know what it’s like to feel disillusioned at work.
For months (and sometimes years), each one of us on the Careershifters team felt stuck in a career that wasn't right for us.
We craved a single place online where we could meet others like us, get inspired by people who'd made successful shifts, find practical career change information – and no longer feel alone.
But nothing like that existed.
And that's why we created Careershifters.
Three questions drive everything we do:
1. How can we help the millions of people across the world that want – or need – to make a career change do it more effectively?
2. How can we be a champion for fulfilment being at the core of our working cultures?
3. In time, how can we influence the education system to better equip young people to navigate the new world of work?
Traditional careers guidance isn’t working.
We're reinventing it, drawing from the worlds of entrepreneurship, psychology and design thinking, and powering our approach through coaching, community and technology.
We won’t just help you get clear on your next career move; we’ll also help you to develop the mindset to confidently make future shifts.
