Support career changers who share a story.

While BME welcomes all career changers, we also see a need for resources dedicated to specific communities.

For example, a community might be STEM graduate students looking for careers beyond academia. Or nurses exploring options beyond bedside care. Or outdoor educators looking for something beyond backcountry programs.

BME Communities is how we open our school to serve these career changers who have a shared story.

When are you launching your first communities?
January 2020. We're taking interest now.

How much does it cost to host a community?
Nada. We provide a the BME career change platform at no cost. In fact, you should make money as a community host. From side hustle to full-time.

I can make money doing this? Tell me more!
It's simple. You deliver value by helping people solve for what's next in their career. These happy people pay for this support either through memberships or 1:1 sessions.

1:1 Sessions? Will I be able to handle that?
You don't need to be an expert. We don't do traditional career coaching here. Instead, you will receive the training and tools to be an effective instructor within our school of courses. And the BME team is here to help :)

Can I work with a partner to launch a community?
Yes, you can be a solo host or work with a partner.

How can I contact you to express interest in hosting a community?

Test Drive BME

“Overall it was fantastic and has transformed my mindset when it comes to the traditional job hunt and in my case, a career pivot. I’m far more enthusiastic about the process than before.”Graham

“I would absolutely recommend this to anybody who is feeling lost or confused about what direction they want to take in their career. They help you frame things in a more simple way to focus on what’s most important to you. I left feeling inspired and ready to take charge of my job search and my career.”Renee

“They created the structure and excitement for this whole group of people to find the tangible next steps in their careers and help their peers along too.”Caroline

“I want to say THANK YOU for the opportunity to articulate and put out there my intention. It’s been in the making for at least 3 years now and you helped me put my ideas into action since that day. You truly have made a significantly positive impact in my life.”Danielle

About BME

We are rethinking career change to match the future of work.

Career Planning Is Dead

Ruckus Making Rule Breakers

Steal Our Stuff

Career Planning Is Dead

Whoa, that’s an aggressive introduction. But it’s true. Planning is how we try to find comfort in predicting the future, and it turns out we’re really bad at it.

The future is more fluid than ever. Industries are evolving at an accelerated pace of job creation and destruction.

You can't win with conventional thinking. The best jobs never land on job boards and your pretty resume is read by robots.

Luck matters. The hard truth is that we are far from a true meritocracy. Recent studies show that luck is as important as talent and hard work.

We believe career change can be delightful.

Everything is an experiment. Lean into weird ideas!

We challenge the boring, unreliable status quo ‘rules’ and invite you to do the same.

Reliable career help should not be out of reach due to limited means or size of network.

Ideas get better when shared. That’s why we make our content copy-right free.

A test-and-learn practice for career discovery wins over career planning.

Shift To Discovery

It’s time to shift from unreliable, un-fun, career planning to a practice of discovery.

You need imaginative problem-solving that reliably produces creative answers for what’s next. Learn about the test-and-learn approach we use called Looping Method.
