If you’re actively looking for your next great career move and aren’t getting exciting interviews within a month or offers within a few months, you need professional guidance to identify the right roles, refine your messaging, hold effective conversations with the right people and negotiate your top compensation. This guidance, along with support can halve the time it takes you to land fulfilling work. 

Professionals join ArcVida when they are navigating a job search, are making a functional career pivot, need to land work in a new area, or want to find an inclusive workplace and hit obstacles. Here are some specific reasons people shared for joining ArcVida and how they felt before they started working with us. We use our clients’ direct quotes, but not names. 

They Are Feeling Stuck in Their Industry or Role

Hopeless, stuck, too late, dead-end – if any of these things describe how you’re thinking about your current work, you’re not alone.  Here’s how some of our clients described these feelings and fears.

1. They felt hopeless

"I felt hopeless that I wasn’t able to get a job outside of my former industry."

2. They were working in a dead-end role

"I felt like I’d reached a dead-end in my job, at a high level but I didn't know what was next."

3. They were dreading starting over at a low level.

"I thought I had to start at the bottom to make the career move I was ready to make."

4. They felt resigned because of the time they'd invested.

I felt like it was too late and I had too much experience to make a career move.

They Are Experiencing Big Life Changes

30% of our clients move during their career transition. Often their lives are changing at the same time.

5. They were moving cross-country

"I was moving across the country to join my fiancé after my firm dissolved and I was laid off. I wanted to build a professional network to make a great move."

6. They had a whole life reinvention

I had experienced a big life change with a move, a divorce, and my youngest child graduating from high school and needed support to change my career too.

They Are Suffering Under Daily Stress

When you’re in a bad work environment, feeling anxious or taken advantage of, getting trapped in a negative mindset is easy.  When you’re feeling low, it’s hard to make a positive career transition alone.

7. They had a negative work environment.

"Before starting with ArcVida, I didn't realize that not every working environment felt bad."

8. They were underpaid

"I knew I was underpaid but I didn't know how to make more."

9. They were in an anxiety cycle

"I was stuck in a cycle of anxiety—anxious about my current job, anxious about finding the time to aimlessly apply for jobs, anxious about not being able to find a new job once I did apply, and then repeating."

They Need a Solid Structure for Success

What do you need to be successful? Clients who like structure find committing to ArcVida’s program relaxing – instead of creating a workable structure, they adapt and use ours to be more efficient. For clients who aren’t usually as structured, the accountability, support, and proven methods embedded in our program allow them to reach a thrilling outcome.

10. They needed focus

"I knew I needed focused and structured job search time and I didn't feel private coaching was enough structure for me."

11. They needed accountability

"I needed accountability and a refreshed outlook on my job search."

12. They needed a safe way out

"I felt like I couldn’t leave my current job due to life and the pandemic, but wanted to find a safe way out and into a new role."

13. They needed an affordable and efficient option

"I was looking for a more affordable and time-effective career-coaching option."
