Let’s be honest: finding a job isn't easy.

It doesn't matter if you've just graduated, or are making a career move. Finding a job can be a long, scary process that seems to run in circles. You don't know if or when you'll hear back from hiring managers. You wonder if the job you're searching for is right for you, and if “the one“ is even available. You're ready for an opportunity, but feel like no one gives you a chance.

It can be tough to understand your value to an employer.

When there's no reassurance that you're doing the "right" thing, you may doubt yourselves—your education, your creative background and skills—before you even get to the interview! “What value would I bring to this role? Is my work even good enough? What if I'm not good enough?“

The perfect job for you is out there.

You just have to know how to find it. That way, when you're going through the job-hunting process, the right one will find you. And in this course, Petrula will give you the tools, tips, and guidance to confidently land a job that was made for you.

Land Your Dream Job

A step-by-step course for you to find and land your next creative job.

Get Noticed

Know what hiring managers are looking for so you can tailor your résumé, cover letter, and portfolio to show them you’re the right candidate for the job—regardless of your experience. Make a great first impression before the first interview.

Master the Search

Set yourself up for success. Know the exact steps you need to take through each phase of the job search to find the perfect job for you, how to get in front of the companies you'd like to work for, and follow up with hiring managers in a professional way.

Feel Confident

From the instructor:

The secret to getting there is getting started.

Everybody's got some excuse for why they can’t move ahead.

“My work’s not good enough.”

“The timing just isn't right.”

“I don’t have the courage.”

“I am never going to get there.”

Fear of the unknown can keep us stuck, both personally and professionally. But nothing is going to get you farther along than deeply understanding who you are, what an employer needs and the process to make that connection.

Sure, they may see your great work, but they’re unsure how long it took you to get there. They don't know if you are a great team member, a generous collaborator, and ultimately, if you can do your very best under pressure.

The secret? Instilling trust.

This course is not only about getting a job. It's about replacing the unknowns with things you will now understand, so there’s less to fear! We’ll cover research, planning, writing, presenting, negotiating, and making that connection meaningful.

You have to take the time to understand the process—otherwise, you’ll never know where you might have gone wrong in the past.

In my late 20s, I was just starting my own graphic design studio. I was really afraid. So I asked a seasoned colleague his career advice. He said, “Petrula, just show up to meetings on time, return phone calls promptly, be dependable and do what you say you’re going to do.”

I thought, “It can’t be that easy,” and he smiled and said, “If you do those things, you’ll be better than 90% of designers out there.” Turns out, I just needed a nudge in the right direction.

So, I want to give you that same nudge. I want you to look at the next place you want to be and ask, “How am I going to get there?”

I’ve helped hundreds of young designers realize their potential, and now, I want to inspire you to do your best.

If you're ready, let's get started and get you that dream job.
