I'm Sarah Vermunt, the gal behind Careergasm. I'm a career coach, former business professor, and the bestselling author of Careergasm and Career Rookie.
I serve up no-nonsense, straight-talking career advice at places like Forbes, Inc., Entrepreneur, ELLE, Glamour, Fortune, and Fast Company.
I help people figure out what the heck they want so they can quit jobs they hate and do work they love. And you know how that all started?
I had a breakdown in the middle of a crowded coffee shop. (Not recommended!)
I used to be a professor at a business school. One day I was hunched over my laptop in a coffee shop, working on some research — a part of my job I definitely didn't enjoy. One day I just couldn’t do it anymore. I had a big, fat, embarrassing, very public meltdown. The kicker? I was teaching and researching workplace happiness.
I gave notice the next day. Since then I’ve devoted my life to helping people quit jobs that just don't fit, to getting the heck outta Dodge when they can’t take it anymore, and to helping people choose careers that make Monday morning feel good again.
