I'll be your trusty sidekick on this journey...
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 BS-free career advice at places like Forbes, Inc., Entrepreneur, ELLE, Glamour, Fortune, and Fast Company. Nobody is more surprised by this than me. I swear a lot, wear glitter nail polish, and refuse to drink the corporate Kool-Aid.
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 Starbucks. Yup. Sexy.
I used to be a professor at a business school. One day I was hunched over my laptop at Starbucks, working on some research. I HATED conducting research. One day I just couldn’t do it anymore. I had a big, fat, embarrassing meltdown right in the middle of Starbucks. The kicker? I was teaching and researching workplace happiness.
I gave notice the next day. A career as a professor was not for me. Since then I’ve devoted my life to helping people quit jobs they hate, to getting the hell out of Dodge when they just can’t take it anymore, and to helping people choose careers they can fall crazy drunk in love with.
