What Is NextCareer.me?

This set of programs is built on tools created for a UCLA creative industry class.  Since then, it has been used by corporate leaders, engineering students, and entrepreneurs trying to find good tools to support their career transition journey.   It is a program run by the Maremel Institute, a think tank in Southern California in the United States.

How does this help me?

There are lots of quizzes and job sites out there.  NextCareer.me is a program to help you find the right tools and set a follow up system to keep the journey and transition going.  We all change jobs.  In fact, the average person under 30 changes them more than once every 3 years.  How can you find the right support under these transitions?  

What is The Process Like?

We have built 5 support steps along this journey.  Each person needs something different and a different combination, so please enjoy them as you need the tools and support. 

1. Map Where You Have Been

How have you made job decisions and set your path to date?  We’ll work with tools to help you think afresh about your journey and tactics. 

2. Research Resources in the Wild

Google is your friend and your worst enemy.  We’ll work with you on skills to explore possible jobs and careers while avoiding the traps along the way from poor information and bends in the digital road. 

3. Build Goals to Bridge Your Skill Gaps

We’ll explore the jobs you might want in the future, and how your soft and hard skills relate –and can expand through classes and experiences.  We’ll be plotting a longer-term journey than just your next job. 

4. Reach Out Proactively vs. Reacting to Job Posts

You will have access to tracking tools to see where you are, set reminders for follow up, and new information about prospective companies.  

5. Adjust, Expand, or Refocus

You are driving your own journey, and will be adjusting as we move forward.
