  • If you’re committed to using the most current and proven job marketplace information and want real human support without paying the price of personal coaching this program is for you!

Cristin  Downs is by far the most thorough, engaged, and encouraging career coach I’ve worked with. Her attention to detail and patience puts her on a completely different level. On top of that, she’s a wonderful human  being and easy to get along with – essential when you’re looking for someone to take you to the next step! I cannot recommend her enough if you’re serious about moving forward in your career.

Cristin changed my life! I always had a “good” resume, but with Cristin’s insight, my resume went from good to GREAT! On top of all the little  tweaks that she made to my resume, she also was able to sit down with me  and figure out what was lacking in my experience to move my career  forward. In my case she determined that I lacked proof of knowledge so  she suggested that I earn as many certifications that related to my  career goals as I could and within a few weeks I got a promotion and a  few months after that I was offered an even better job. Thanks Cristin!!

After owning my own business for the last 5 years, I made the decision to re-enter the corporate world. I had a lot of work to get ready for this process…or so I thought. Cristin was able to help me sift through hundreds of job listings and identify the perfect opportunities for me. She helped me prepare my resume for the automated systems it was going to go through, and also highlighted my work experience in a concise and powerful way. Cristin held my hand through the interview process and acted as my cheerleader the whole time. Had I not decided to work with Cristin, I would probably still be putting in multiple applications and hoping for a callback. Thanks to her, the process was quick and actually fun. I landed the perfect job for my skill set. Both I and my family are very grateful for Cristin.

Frequently Asked Questions

⇣ Who created this program?

Hello! My name is Cristin, and I am a career multi-pivoter with over a decade of experience getting people new jobs. I’ve personally pivoted 4 times, and I’ve worked with over 100 individuals since the Great Resignation started in 2021. I’ve helped people go from layoff to job in 3 weeks, from firing to a $150K offer in one week, from owning their own business to back to corporate life, to doubling their salary, to finding a job that doesn’t make them cry every day…

I started this program because I found that although everyone would love to work with me one to one, the cost can be prohibitive. Also, it’s so freaking useful to work with other people going through this same process at the same time. I can tell you something is true, but when you see it happening for 5 other people in the program – it’s invaluable!

A few more odd Cristin facts – I make pizza with my family every Friday night, I love cracking jokes, I detest bullies, and I can’t get enough of watching disaster movies.

⇣ How does the payment work?

You can either pay the $2500 in full today or you can enroll in a payment plan. The payment plan is $417/month for a total of 6 months. There is no additional fee for enrolling in a payment plan (because I never liked that personally and the fun part of owning your own business is that you get to do what you want).

⇣ What happens when I've found my new job?

First and foremost, pat yourself on the back! Well done! Definitely come into the group and let us know or send me an email directly. There might be a surprise on its way to you… 😉

Next, there is a whole module in the program about resigning your current job, things to think about when leaving your employer, and how to start the new gig out on the right foot. I recommend going through that before submitting your letter of resignation.

If you’re earlier in the program, you still get support on the group calls with any and all of your questions, and you get continued access to the membership with other folks just like you who have made the pivot and are now at their new companies. There are many kindred spirits for you to connect with!

⇣ Do you give refunds?

Up to 15 days after sign-up, you can get a no questions asked refund. Your access to the program, group, and membership are removed at the same time.

Between 15 days and 6 months after sign-up, your payments will be stopped, and your access to the group and membership will be removed, but payments that were already submitted are retained as is your access to the program material you’ve received in the time corresponding to your payments.

⇣ I've decided one on one coaching is a better fit for me. What should I do?

You have two potential options if you’re interested in one-on-one coaching. One is that you can purchase an add on to this program, which gives you one 90-minute session with me per month for 6 months. That brings the price of the program to $3500 or $584/month for 6 months. You can add that on at checkout.

Or if you’d like the full experience of Monday through Friday email and Voxer (a walkie talkie app where we talk back and forth throughout the week) support – essentially a Cristin in your pocket – in addition to a monthly one-to-one 90-minute session, you can sign up for a one to one package at $5000 or $834/month for 6 months. You can apply for that here.

These one to one packages have limited availability.
