This week's Top 10 Opportunities

Issue 746, Sun 9 June, 2024

Happy Monday Escapees,

This week’s Monday morning email, is serving two very important purposes. Not only are we bringing you the 10 very best opportunities that are live on Escape right now, but we are also here to deliver you an important PSA… :rotating_light:

Applications for our Career Change Accelerator programme are closing at Wednesday 12th June at 12pm BST. That’s just about 48 hours to go. :alarm_clock:

We truly believe that the Career Change Accelerator programme is something special. We’ve seen firsthand the change and opportunities that it has brought to over 2,000 ambitious professionals over our 10 years of running the accelerator, and want to help even more people realise and move into careers that are right for them - especially whilst navigate the post-Covid, ever-changing new world of work.

Just a few of those career changes and pivots have included:

  • Teaching > Website development
  • Solicitor > Photographer, adventurer, & motivational speaker
  • Corporate marketing > Coaching & psychology
  • TV Production > Eco fashion consultancy
  • Oil industry > Horticultural therapist
  • Civil service > Senior Digital Product Manager

And a couple of comments from our alumni:

“It was an amazing experience. I have learnt so much about myself and the kind of person I want to be, not just in my career but in my life...the Career Change Accelerator has brought back some magic into my life.” Kirsty

“You really get to test out your career dreams and it has a strong bias not just for reflection but for putting curiosities into practical action.” Sarah

If you’ve been asking yourself any of the following questions - “How can I pivot my career to something more purposeful? Will I have to take a massive step down? What about money? How can I move into an industry that I have no experience in?” - the Accelerator Programme may be shake up you need to move forward.

The programme will show you how to uncover new paths for yourself, prototype different careers and start building the skills and networks that allow you to move into something that's right for you. Starting Tues 18th June for 8 weeks, the virtual programme will give you the confidence and direction that you need to finally make a change. If you like what you read, take a look at the syllabus here, and application form here.

And as aways, Happy Escaping!
