The Oxford ProgramTM is an online career counseling program specially designed to help people (who feel "stuck" with a complex career choice/change dilemma) discover their "natural vocation" and have it all: a career they absolutely love and that pays them what they need. It succeeds where conventional career counseling has failed in the past.
Our clients are "enlightened" people who want to wake up in the morning and look forward to work; who realize their career is too important to trust to fate or help wanted ads or their families well-intentioned advice. You may already know from first-hand experience that conventional career advice books and tests are too primitive to be of much help.
AND...studies have shown that people who naturally fit their career aptitude-wise and personality-wise make, on average, from $3000 to $90,000 more per year than people in the same career who are a poor fit?
Are you ready to love your work?
This is the cornerstone. Without this cornerstone, you’ll flounder like thousands of others who are trying to find their way out of the wrong career. It’s a fundamental concept that’s been around for thousands of years. To assess this, in the program you'll complete the Highlands Ability Battery.
By delving into each of the following areas, you get closer to knowing your true self, the part of you that has a clearer sense of what you need and where you have to go in life. You feel optimism and confidence from your newfound personal vision and sense of purpose for your work and personal life.
The factors that go into a career decisions often compete. They are difficult to organize into a single direction or direction. By using both logical and rational (left brain), and non-logical and creative (right-brain) exercises, individuals identify possible directions to investigate. At this stage, participants may have 2 or 3 possible solutions to the career decisions they are dealing with.
Direction and focus ultimately come from actual experience. The process of Phases 1 through 3 help individuals concentrate on paths that can be meaningful and fitting for them. In Phase 4, participants learn how to carry out systematic decision-making through carefully orchestrated research and actions. Each client eventually finds the best specific fit between themselves and a direction. In the later stages we focus on action planning and the job search.
The process is led by certified Oxford career coaches. WHERE? You go through the program from the comfort of your own surroundings. You progress at times most convenient to you. EFFORT? We ask you to budget a minimum of 3 hours of time per week to achieve optimal results.
What would you prefer? Some “take this test and discover your dream job” scheme that is bound for failure? Or a proven, step‐by‐step experience that is extremely practical, honest, scientific, and inspiring?
