What Makes Cultivated Culture Different?
If you want to win an amazing job in today's market, you have to do things differently.
The most recent data shows that you have a ~2% chance of landing an interview when you apply for jobs online. On top of that, 75% of people using online applications as their primary method for applying to roles.
In other words, if you're using the "traditional" system, you're competing with 75% of the job market for a 2% chance of simply getting a phone screen.
But that's not all. The traditional job search system has us applying for whatever new companies have posted jobs that week and then crossing out fingers. We give up control of what we want and hope a company takes a chance on us instead of choosing specific companies that excite us -- that we'd love to work for.
That's where Cultivated Culture comes in.
Our job search system is based on Austin's personal job search journey and his frustration with the traditional process.
As a new grad, he has a biology degree, a 2.58 GPA, and a job in healthcare. His goal was to transition to tech. 300 applications and 0 offers later, he knew he needed a new system.
The system he built centered around two core components:
1. Building relationships and generating referrals
2. Finding innovative ways to illustrate his value to prove that he was the best candidate for the job
That system resulted in interviews at Microsoft, Google, and Twitter leading to a 5+ year career at Microsoft where Austin was promoted three times and won the company's platinum club award.
Over the past 6 years, he's tweaked and refined his job search system with thousands of clients from all over the world, ranging from new grads to CEOs.
It's the exact same system we teach to our clients today so they can achieve similar results.

Step #1: A Free 30 Minute Discovery Call

We'll walk you through all of the details and answer any questions you have so you can see if this program is the right fit. No obligations!

Then we'll create a custom 12 week plan that plays to your unique strengths and personality.
Does the idea of meeting a stranger for coffee terrify you? No worries! Hate sending emails, but love video? We'll plan for that!
Every program we create is 100% unique to the client.
Step #3: Defining Your Targets
Next, we'll get super clear on where you want to go and what companies align with your values and priorities. If that's a Fortune 500 company like Google, great! If that's a small, early stage startup, also great! Career happiness isn't always about working for a big name, it's about finding a company that aligns with your values.
Step #4: Building Out Your Materials
Once we have our list of target companies, we'll help you transform your Resume and LinkedIn profile into job interview generating machines. They'll be fully tailored to your target roles and companies to maximize outcomes.

Step #6: Value So Clear, They Can't Ignore It
As you're building relationships, we'll work with you to find creative was to illustrate your value. You'll be able to focus on your message and share it in your own words, on your own terms. Companies and contacts are going to understand exactly what you bring to the table -- even if you don't have any traditional experience in the industry yet!
Step #7: Acing The Interview
As you begin to land interviews, we'll dive deep into our proprietary interview preparation system. We'll help you build out your story, align your value, and leverage research-backed psychology principles to build instant rapport with your interviewer so you begin converting more interviews into job offers.

Here's What Our Clients Have To Say
Here are a few stories from our clients:
Cultivated Culture knocked my socks off with his job search approach and strategy and once I got things rolling, I immediately started getting results. I had several interviews lined up, and had recruiters reaching out to ME via LinkedIn multiple times a week!
Without Cultivated Culture, I wouldn’t be where I’m at right now. If you’re having a difficult time landing a career you love or simply not having any luck landing interviews, Cultivated Culture is for you!
Operations at Masterclass
My career path was not a typical linear trajectory and I was looking for support in navigating my job search at a time when jobs were scarce and I felt my “age” could be an issue. I just started a new marketing job, but in a new industry with an opportunity to focus on the customer, making $35K more in salary, plus bonus, plus extra week vacation! I am so excited! I highly recommend Cultivated Culture if you are feeling overwhelmed by the job search process and need resources, accountability, and support.
Marketing at Orthoclinical diagnostics
I was rejected from 196 total applications before I leveraged Cultivated Culture's Value Validation Project strategy. It led to two offers at Disney as well as offers from Big 4 consulting firms.
Analytics at disney
I landed 3 final round interviews with absolutely fantastic companies paying WAY upwards of six-figures. I was able to transition from Minneapolis to an amazing job in Amsterdam.
Sales at IHS Markit
When I started with Cultivated Culture, I was unemployed at needed visa sponsorship in the next two months. Their system helped me land a program manager role at Intuit with a 30% raise and H1-B sponsorship in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Program Manager at Intuit
Cultivated Culture changed my life. I was a firefighter with no degree working two blue collar jobs. They helped me make the jump into software sales with a $10k raise despite not having any "traditional" tech experience and no college degree.
