WE IMAGINE YOU MADE A FEW RESOLUTIONS LAST WEEK, AND WE'LL BET AT LEAST ONE OF THEM HAD TO DO WITH YOUR CAREER. WE'RE HERE TO HELP WITH OUR FIRST-EVER WEEK LONG CAREER KICKSTART.

It's our goal to help working women everywhere reach their professional goals—and to do it without sacrificing their health and happiness. The thought of changing your career can seem daunting (because, frankly, it is) so we're breaking it down into a 5-step process with some bonus worksheets, giveaways, and other perks along the way. This is the week's schedule:

DAY 1: SET YOUR GOALS (Part 1 | Part 2)

DAY 2:  HONE YOUR STRATEGY (Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3)

DAY 3:  BUILD YOUR PROFESSIONAL BRAND (Part 1 | Part 2

DAY 4:  ADVANCE YOUR CAREER (Part 1 | Part 2)

DAY 5: MAINTAIN THE MOMENTUM (Part 1 | Part 2 | Additional Resources )

WHAT YOU WIN

Like we said, overhauling your career is a big undertaking, but we're here to help with some tailored advice on whatever part of it needs our help. Late last year, we launched our new Hire An Expert platform where we've gathered some of the most experienced, powerful, and creative women we know to help you advance your career. Regardless of whether you're deep in the job hunt or simply looking for ways to grow within your company, they know what's up.

Career Contessa founder, Lauren McGoodwin, is one of the club, and she's waiting for you. Says one recent client:

"At the end of the call, I was amazed at how calm, empowered, and (dare I say) excited I felt to continue my job search. It's amazing what an hour with a Contessa can do."

If you win, she'll give you a free session in any area you'd like from improving your resume to overhauling your LinkedIn profile. Your choice.
