Are you ready to accelerate your UX career?

Let me guess, you want more job satisfaction, better culture fit, and higher pay. You know that you have all of the plans, to-do lists, and even done continued education or training. Don’t forget that you’ve watched possibly a 1,000 videos. It’s been a long slog to train in UX design and job hunting feels like a bigger challenge than your tech bootcamp.

You know that you want to ditch the old resume, spruce up your portfolio, and finally make a better LinkedIn. Not to mention, you have to look up your local job market, practicing interviewing, and cultivate a resilient mindset. You may even have bought a new bullet journal to keep you on track. Then you start mind-mapping, brainstorming, and freewriting your goals and action steps.

Bright-eyed is how you start, then slowly it hits you how much you need to learn, research, and do to even just do one task on your list. Each bullet point on the list now has sub-bullets and now you have lists within lists! Suddenly, the dread hits. 

Where will you find the time and what are the best tactics? You feel like you’re floundering again.

It’s because you’re not in your zone of genius.

Work with a Subject Matter Expert to save yourself time, effort, and money. You know user experience, I know the job market especially for career changers graduating from tech bootcamp. I have 5 years of experience helping UX designers at all stages of their careers! 

If you want to run towards your goals with supportive accountability and personalized advice, I have a coaching package for you!

I’ll teach you not just how to interview well, but help clarify your professional branding, social media strategy, and ideal company culture. We’ll have fun too. Clients describe my coaching style as warm, down-to-earth, and funny.

And I’ll keep you jazzed and accountable in getting yourself out there to make change happen in your career!

A session on interviewing your best, role playing questions asked by your ideal company, and getting your story straight so you can provide a clear career narrative that highlights your unique value to the company.

Session 2: Strategy & Brand

We collaborate on your strategy for reviving your personal brand, getting your resume out there, and making sure that your presentation is as consistent and aligned as possible. Your portfolio, LinkedIn, Behance, and resume will be reviewed.

Session 4: Professional Development

In the final session, we outline your next steps for career success, polish your application materials, and answer any final questions that you have about careers, networking, and more.

My clients know they are at a crossroads with a vision of creating a new life. They have done personal development work. They are ambitious with a social and creative conscious. They are ready to do the work to get the work.

Hi, I’m Sami, the Founder of Career Kickstart Academy.

My career joy comes from making an positive impact in other people’s lives. My personal desire for that positive impact is the cornerstone of Career Kickstart Academy. I really do want you to succeed. 

Career evolution is my jam.

I believe that you don’t have to have your personality removed to be a professional. I have always danced to the beat of my own drum and did my share of career pivots along the way. Former librarian here. Career change isn’t just something that I help others go through. I have done it myself.

I am currently an online career specialist with a dynamic tech boot camp in addition to traveling as a digital nomad.

I know a thing or two about a quirky lifestyle and career path…

If you are a creative, multi-talented, and high-vibe professional that draws outside the lines, then I am your career strategist. I am a career coach that can help you thrive in the new job market.

I have worked with web developers, graphic designers, UX researchers, artists, engineers, social workers, and more. They all had one thing in common- they were eager to design authentic careers and ready to work for it!

I am not your typical career coach, resume writer, or job counselor. I am not giving you last century’s advice, I am not pushing you to conform, and I think outside the box.

This package will give you the guidance, support, and a shiny application package to hit the job market running. All uniquely professional, all uniquely you!

If you want to accelerate your career, then bring me on your team so we can make magic happen!


Your ROI spent, in both this program and your time spent finding a new job, won’t just be in your paycheck. It will reveal itself in your improved lifestyle too.

A coaching and consulting package knocks both technical & mental blocks out of the way so you can get onto the job market and into a new job quicker. This package gives you that playbook to get you out the rut and into the game! 

Are you ready to evolve your career? Time is a-wasting!

Warning: I am not the coach for people who aren’t ready to put in the work to upgrade their work. I will bring all my expertise, but in the end, your results will depend on you implementing the tools and techniques.

This is also not a package for folks who aren’t able to get introspective, move forward, and get flexible.

Are you driven, creative, quirky, multi-talented, ready to thrive, and eager to implement and honor the hell out of your dreams?

Then I’m the coach for you.

Dozens of recommendations can be found on my LinkedIn!

What else do my clients say...

I want to get you jazzed by your own career. 

I give you access to the know-how, support, and accountability and bundling all the tools and coaching that you need to succeed. You’ll save time, cut out the tech stress, and gain confidence. The strategy sessions will energize you even as you leave informed, practiced, and inspired on the job hunt.

Want to fall in love with your career again?

To make sure that you get pumped, polished, and empowered for the job hunt, I limit my clients.

If you’d like to chat about how career coaching can take you to the next level, I’d be happy to hear from you!
