Find Your Fit

A step-by-step blueprint for finding and positioning yourself for the perfect tech job! | Taught by Jeremy Schifeling

Course Description

Want a tech job but don't know where to start?

Tell me if this sounds familiar:

  • You've always been passionate about tech - the sexiest gadgets, the latest apps
  • You know that tech is the future - from schools to taxis to thermostats, everything's going digital
  • And you'd love to work for a cool tech company - from Google to Snapchat to Tesla


So why are you still sitting on the sidelines?

I'll tell you why. Because I've been there - for the first 10 years of my career, in fact.

And if you're anything like me, you've:

  • Spent a lot of time wishing you worked in tech
  • Read a lot of blogs about working in tech
  • Maybe even dabbled with an online coding course

But after all that time, what do you have to show for it? 

Nada. 

Why?

Because reading and wishing don't actually get you any closer to a cool tech job.

Because coding, while lucrative, is both really hard to learn and really boring for most people.

And because the idea of launching a whole new career in a whole new space is really, freaking overwhelming.

  


But what if I told you there was a better way?

A way that took your hand and walked you step-by-step through everything you need to do to get started and find your place in the crazy world of tech.

The way that I used to go from teaching kindergarten to identifying perfect-fit marketing roles at Apple, LinkedIn, and VC-funded startups.

And the way that's helped hundreds of people go from sitting on the sidelines to careers at Google, Amazon, and Zendesk - all without learning to code.  


That's the Find Your Fit way.

Because Find Your Fit is not just my original online course. It's also the only truly step-by-step path to finding the perfect tech role for you. It's not a blog or even a boring MOOC where you sit back and listen passively while never getting any closer to your goal. Instead, it's a 100% action-based approach to breaking into tech.
 

Here's how it works:

1) UNDERSTAND TECH JOBS
We'll start with a crash course on the Top 10 tech jobs that are open to anyone - even if you don't code. These are jobs that get hired for thousands of times a year but that no one ever tells you about - roles like PM, PMM, CorpDev, BizDev, BizOps. And I'll walk you through exactly what they do all day and how to see if you'd be a good fit.

1) Understand Tech Jobs


2) Find the Perfect Job for You
2) FIND THE PERFECT JOB FOR YOU
You'll rate each of these jobs in your interactive workbook, generating a personalized recommendation of the right role for you. I told you this course was about taking action and getting results - not just listening and forgetting! :)


3) TEST YOUR FIT AGAINST EXPERTS
You'll start to meet experts in your chosen space to confirm your fit. But don't freak out - I'll show you exactly how to find the perfect contacts on LinkedIn, I'll give you complete templates you can use to reach out to anyone, and I'll tell you precisely which questions to ask to build a network of tech supporters.
3) Test Your Fit Against Experts


4) Position Yourself to Win
4) POSITION YOURSELF TO WIN
I'll give you a peek inside the minds of tech recruiters - who they look for and how they hire. And based on that, I'll show you how to take any experience you've had before - no matter how different from tech - and turn it into total recruiter bait. Including the exact keywords recruiters look for and examples of resume bullets that will make even the frostiest tech recruiter melt!


5) FILL THE GAPS
If there are any gaps in your experience where you really do need to up your game, I'll show you how to get that experience for free and in days - no 3-month bootcamp or $100K graduate degree required! And that way, when you start to apply for tech jobs, you'll do so as an expert, not a wannabe.
5) Fill the Gaps


Plus, get this...

  • I've broken everything down into 3-minute videos so you never get bored if you're as ADD as I am... :)
     
  • I'll show you all the free tools I use to find anyone's email address and stay in touch automatically (including how to never pay LinkedIn a dime!)
     
  • And you'll never get stuck because I give you step-by-step checklists from start to finish

 

And that's how you can actually break into tech - not just dream about it.




Wait... what's the catch?

As a former teacher, I've done my best to make the crazy complicated process of breaking into tech crazy easy:

I've broken the entire process into small steps so you don't have to waste time searching the Net or freaking out about what to do next. Just do each lesson and you'll be on your way.

I've given you the exact words to use in every email and conversation. So no more holding back due to your fear of what to say.

And I've even automated all the hardest parts of the process - staying on top of your search, remembering to follow-up with people - so no matter how crazy your schedule, you always stay on track.


 

But there is one thing I require:

You're going to have to take action.

There, I said it.

What no online course is willing to ask: That you actually get off your butt and do something.

Because if all you want to do is sit back and listen - and then pat yourself on the back for signing up for something, knowing full well that you'll never have to do anything scary out there in the real world - then I can't help you, unfortunately. That's just not how real career transformation works.

In fact, I don't even want your money.

Because my goal in life is to help people from all backgrounds actually break into tech. Not just fantasize about it.

And that means taking action.

 

So do me a favor: Only proceed if you're willing to take action!






Questions?


What does the course cover?

I take you all the way from knowing absolutely nothing about tech jobs to identifying the perfect role for you - and demonstrating that fit in a rockstar resume or LinkedIn profile. This is absolutely the most important part of the whole tech job search since if you apply for the wrong kind of job, not even the best cover letter or interview technique can save you. But if you already know exactly where you belong, you may want to skip ahead to my next course.

How do I know I'm going to get results?

Because this is the exact same approach I used to land offers at Apple, Amazon, LinkedIn, Microsoft, and VC-backed startups. And it's the exact same approach I've taught hundreds of others, leading to offers from the biggest tech firms (Google, Dell) and the hottest startups (BetterWorks, Zendesk). But if you're not getting results within 30 days, I will gladly refund your full tuition because I'm 100% committed to results. Just forward me the emails that aren't getting you anywhere and I'll refund your money immediately.

I've got another question!

I built this course with one overarching goal: To help others succeed. So lay it on me!

Great course!

by Ingrid Arreola
WOW, what a really great course to gain insight on the tech industry, its roles, my fit, and very practical steps to gaining confidence in the tech job search. I really enjoyed this course, I appreciate how it's broken up into very small steps, with call-to-actions, and email reminders to continue learning. It is evident that these roles have been thoroughly researched, making it so much easier to find out what your role in the tech field is. I went through this and it's so great, I've been able to make connections at different tech companies following the advice. I've been able to revamp my LinkedIn and I feel much more confident about my ability to transition into the tech industry. Thank you so much for this great course!

Find Your Fit actually "found me" and my way!

by Ryan Maliszewski
Jeremy's course was very helpful and insightful on how to better market yourself & get into tech! I especially appreciated Jeremy going out of his way to provide me with a transcript of the course as I am Deaf (I will make sure I refer all of my Deaf and Hard of Hearing buddies to this course!) as several elements relied on audio. I could not have thought of a better "training" package that included everything one needed to get ahead of the job search process particularly in the tech field: Excel workbooks, LinkedIn tips, throught-provoking questions, and many more! Jeremy truly did his "homework" and streamlined the whole exploration and application process which could have took me many months or perhaps years into a matter of several hours. Glad to have took the "red pill" to see what it all is and could be!

Really helpful course

by Kanishk Dutt
Being a second year MBA on my internship, I knew I had to get to make a decision on the right role in the tech industry really fast. Jeremy's course helped me structure my thoughts and get me to experiment with the idea of pitching myself to a startup to get some practical experience. Following the course's advice, I was able to work with a startup this summer which helped me test my interest in a particular role on a day to day basis, ultimately leading me to make decisions on the basis of that. This course is a must for everyone who is still figuring out a way to get to know about what each of the roles mean and how to evaluate your interest in each one to find the right fit.

Highest ROI of Business School

by Akshay Ram
Find Your Fit is the most important course I took in my Business School. It lays out a structure, helps avoid rabbit holes and most importantly gives you focus, saving the most precious resource in B-school: Time. Focus is key to successful recruiting. Think about it: The more time your peers spend shaping themselves for a particular job and the more time you spend figuring out what you want to do with your MBA the knowledge gap widens. Unlike any other assessment course, Find Your Fit follows a data driven and market first approach helping you use a combination of insights from stats and the collective knowledge of your network to zero in on your true interest. Let’s take a look at an MBA’s most used metric: ROI. If you do the math, a single class in most B- Schools costs around $350. For a fraction of that cost, you get an entire course that will be critical to help land your dream job. The decision is a no brainer.

Tips on breaking into tech that actually work

by Warren Rickards
I followed some of Jeremy's tips, thinking that there will be no difference in the lack of responses I experienced when I used to reach out to individuals at several companies. It was such a relief to see such a dramatic difference in response rates by just tweeking a few steps when reaching out to company representatives. Because of Break Into Tech, I am now actively speaking with companies like Spotify, FaceBook, and Slack.

Excellent guide

by Michael Feldman
I was very impressed with this. It gives an extremely comprehensive yet streamlined overview of the tech world and the possible roles once could fill. It very quickly allowed me to eliminate many options that I had heard of before and would have likely fruitlessly pursued if it hadn't been for this course. It also gave me the chance to identify the areas I'm most likely to be able to transition into at first. The interactivity and action steps throughout the program were also great; it allowed me to reconnect with many old friends and colleagues, and I've developed a small network of people who I will be turning to for advice and possibly connections in the future. It even led to recruiters from a company I'm interested in add me on LinkedIn! Overall, I'm very impressed with this course (my only critique would be to make the volume louder in the narration, but that's such a minor issue that it's barely worth mentioning), and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in breaking into tech.

A++++

by William To
A great resource to those who want to break into tech. I'm in healthcare and have always wanted to shift into the tech space. I found the course easy to follow and actionable, unlike most other online courses. I would highly suggest this course to anyone who wants to change their career direction!

Helps you find your North Start

by Sabir Brara
This is an excellent, practical, and well-paced course that provides a blueprint for job seekers and career switchers into tech. Jeremy is eloquent yet concise. The content is clearly aggregated from years of experience both on the recruiting side and on the job-seeking side which unlocks insights that job seekers would not normally have access to. This is what really generates value for students of this course!
