How does EYP differ from other related services?
Books and other related career readiness materials typically cost a lot more and require instruction and dedicated counseling. Moreover, these materials typically focus on the standard formula of resume writing, interviewing skills, and perhaps campus-based recruiting efforts. We go far beyond this expensive and traditional approach with an organic, holistic, and tactically proven way to engage people in thinking about their future.
Are you providing specific employment opportunities in the courses?
No. We are teaching people to fish. The courses help you understand your career potential in the context of global possibilities. They shape and broaden your perspectives so that when it comes to finding specific employment or making career choices, you are more capable, proactive, and independent in your efforts.
Do I have to take each EYP course in any particular order?
We do recommend that the courses be completed in successive order, as the conversations and lessons build upon one another. Even if you do not take all four courses, each one has standalone value as an independent learning experience.
Is it possible to obtain only one or two modules within a course?
No. Each course with its six modules is designed to be completed in its entirety and we are not providing these module-by-module.
How much do the individual courses cost?
The starting point for pricing is $49 flat fee per course.
How long do I have access to my EYP course materials?
You will retain access to previously completed course materials and results for up to 2 years (24 months) between events. OR for the duration of the subscription.
