Let’s be real. Job searching can really suck sometimes!

It either means you are unemployed, under-employed, unhappy with your job, or entering the workforce for the first time. All of these can be scary situations to be in. (I’ve experienced all 4 myself!)

When you do land a job, what’s next?

How do you manage work politics or cope with stress and burnout? What do you need to do to be successful and advance in your career? And how do you know when it’s time to change careers altogether?

You deserve to be happy at work!

No matter what stage you’re at, navigating your job search and your career path can be complicated and confusing… But it doesn’t have to be!

Hi, I’m Amanda Kay

Employment Specialist & Career Journalist


Yup, I’ve been there, too! Between quitting a toxic job, being laid off, wrongfully fired, underemployed, or miserable at work, I spent more than a decade job searching. But being unemployed and facing these struggles actually worked to my advantage and helped me make the life I want.

How? I became a Employment Specialist, where my job is to help people like YOU find a job you’ll love! I have personally assisted over 3,500 individuals find jobs, create resumes, change careers, learn new skills, and better their lives.

I have also been sharing the expert advice and free resources you need to thrive in life (and not just survive) right here, since 2013.
