From Ramit Sethi, author of the instant New York Times bestseller, “I Will Teach You To Be Rich.”
Take a look at these 3 people. They didn't all go to elite universities. They weren't all born networkers. They didn't even know what their passion was.
But when they applied these powerful techniques, here's what happened
“Asked for the top end of my range…my equity in the company doubled.”Julia M.
"84% raise 8 months into my job."Satvik B.
“I used your techniques to double my salary from $43,224 to $83,125. Plus relocation and benefits.”Prescott P.
“I have applied to hundreds and hundreds of jobs in that time, and despite a strong educational and professional background and outstanding references I have yet to get so much as an interview.” – Shar, quoted in The New York Times
“I am highly educated and flexible, but I’ve had only two interviews for real jobs with benefits in the last year. It seems like there is nowhere I belong.” – KZ, quoted in The New York Times
“We did everything we were supposed to…. What was the point of working so hard for 22 years if there was nothing out there?” – Stephanie M., quoted in The New York Times
The second group accepted their place in life. They accepted that they didn't have enough experience, and they didn't know what their passion was. They accepted that some people are just “born with it.”
For them, a Dream Job was never a possibility. They took the advice of “experts” who told them to “send out another 100 resumes.” And when that didn't work, they decided they needed to “figure it out.”
But the first group of people — the winners — decided to take matters into their own hands. They used my Dream Job techniques to “leapfrog” past the second group (even in the same terrible economy). The winners focused on what they could control and ignored useless advice.
The first group took control of their Dream Job search and, with a little help from my material, now they'll reap the rewards for the rest of their lives.
Hi there. I'm Ramit Sethi, author of the New York Times bestseller “I Will Teach You To Be Rich.” I regularly appear on ABC, contribute to the New York Times, and a couple months ago, I was the subject of a 6-page Fortune Magazine profile.
18 months ago, I started on a quest to find out exactly how top performers were able to land Dream Job after Dream Job, in just days, even in the worst economy in 70 years — and then negotiate thousands of dollars in raises. From my experience in personal finance, I knew most career advice out there was questionable, but until I dug in, I didn't realize just how out of touch it really was.
Our REAL career questions include things like…
There's an answer for each of these questions. But try Googling “career advice” and see if you can find it.
You'll find tip after tip about size font to use on your resume. You'll learn that business cards are apparently REALLY important.
But you won't find a mention of the single-most important factor that separates average performers from top performers: the psychology behind finding a Dream Job.
These psychological “triggers” separate the winners from the losers, allowing the winners to take all — locking down dream jobs before they're ever announced publicly, negotiating massive raises, and even writing their own job description — while others fight over the scraps.
Why don't so-called experts write about the psychology of finding a Dream Job? It's simple. They don't know how.
In the next 5 minutes, you'll see you how I combined my background in persuasion and social influence at Stanford…and tested it with 20,000 data points, to build a system to help you crack the code of finding your Dream Job.
A system that — for the first time — is available beyond a small group of friends and elite students.
I discovered 7 Invisible Scripts to finding a Dream Job — beliefs so deep, they're often invisible to us. How many of these scripts apply to you?
(Most of us hold at least 3 of these scripts…but some have all 7.)
Invisible Script #1: “I don't know what my passions are… there's so much to choose from and I don't want to pick something and be stuck with it later. And when I DO find something I'm passionate about, it doesn't pay!”
Invisible Script #2: “I don't have enough experience. “How am I supposed to get experience when they won't take a chance hiring me?”
Invisible Script #3: “I know I'm supposed to 'network,' but I hate selling myself. What are you supposed to say, anyway? Why would a busy person want to help me?”
Invisible Script #4: “I need to 'figure it out.' I really need to figure out what I want to do…”
Invisible Script #5: “I suck at interviews. Even if I'm lucky enough to get an interview, I never get the job. I always fall apart or just end up rambling.”
Invisible Script #6: “I followed all the rules. I went to college, got good grades, and I'm willing to work HARD. What about all the stuff we were all promised? What about the 6-figure job? Where's that?”
Invisible Script #7: “My situation is different. 'I dunno…I can't get a job because I'm too old/young/went to a state school/majored in English/I'm a job hopper/I don't live in the USA.'”
How many of these scripts do you have?
And what's your natural response to them?
Just like we've been taught since we were kids, you…try harder. It's a predictable pattern — but it's also surprising.
You go online and start searching for how to get a raise, or writing a killer resume. And you get “tips.”
You make list after list of all the things you're interested in and you could potentially do.
Now you have a lists of things you're kinda interested in, and a hodgepodge of random “tips” that you aren't sure how to use,
You get on Twitter…now what?
You update your resume…now what?
How does attending a networking conference turn into a Dream Job?
It's like there's a game being played around you — and you just can't quite figure out the rules.
When I was at Stanford, I had a weird hobby. I got together with a small group of friends and we decided to learn how to “beat” the interviewing process.
We interviewed against the world's best companies — McKinsey, Bain, Google, etc — and tested our best approaches. Interview answers. Negotiation techniques. Even body language. Then we came back and shared our results with each other in our closed circle.
Pretty soon, we could spot the “tells” from a mile away. And we became very, very good. I'm talking about landing job offer after job offer and negotiating tens of thousands of dollars in raises.
But I always had this nagging question in the back of my mind: Was it just luck?
What if we went to a no-name college? Would it work with other jobs?
I wanted to find out, so I started helping other friends get jobs, just as an informal thing.
Some of them weren't sure what they wanted to do, so I helped show them some techniques to “test” their skills against the market (instead of just sitting in their room thinking about their passions…ugh).
I helped others learn how to interview. For negotiation, I taught them the techniques that we'd perfected at Stanford, and my friends ended up averaging $10,000 at the negotiating table.
These weren't all Stanford friends. They were in their 20s and 30s. They went to all kinds of colleges. They were guys, girls, extroverts, introverts. Some of them were being paid very well, and others weren't making what they deserved.
After helping 20+ friends, I realized something…
My friends and I had inadvertently tapped into A GAME BEING PLAYED AROUND US.
Worst of all, we've been so conditioned to focus on random tactics that it's almost impossible to even conceive of different approach.
What I finally realized was that top performers aren't smarter than everyone else… they simply don't play this game at all. They're doing something very different altogether.
Even in this economy — the worst in 70 years — they're still crushing it. They can get top jobs in days, no matter where they went to college. Here are students of mine who went from ordinary to extraordinary.
“I used what I learned [to]….negotiate a raise while salaries were frozen at my job… I was able to secure an increase over 10%. Thanks!”Brian P.
“Not only that, I negotiated a $13,000 raise from my previous position, jumped two titles up to Assistant Vice President, the incentive plan is SIGNIFICANTLY more lucrative.”Chris H.
I got a 17% total increase ($13,000)… and invited to work towards an open position above me in the next few months (possibly another big raise).Batsirai
“Ramit, thanks for the extra $10K, 5+ weeks of vacation and 6% 401(k).”Justin R.
“Almost doubled my salary. It was insane. I was expecting a modest raise but their opening offer was so beyond what I was looking for.”Andrianes Pinantoan
“I used your free techniques to negotiate a 46% salary increase in a lateral move. What I didn't tell you was I also negotiated a 120% increase in sign on bonus/relocation assistance from their original offer ($22k, up from $10k).Jason
“Got the job and negotiated a rate exactly double of what I make now :) Thanks for the wake-up call. I'll never depend on emailing cover letter/resumes again!”Tabitha S.
While most of us are stuck on pointless tactical maneuvers — like worrying about how long our cover letter is, or looking for a “passion worksheet” to write down our interests — top performers play an entirely different game.
They know powerful tactics that everyone else misses because they're too obsessed with minutiae.
They dominate the mental barriers that stop most people in their tracks.
They follow a proven SYSTEMATIC APPROACH for finding and landing Dream Jobs.
That's why they repeatedly land life-changing jobs that others never even hear about. By the time these Dream Jobs are taken, everyone else is left to fight over the scraps. And you know what happens then — a group of hundreds (or thousands) of people submits their look-alike resume through yet another website…directly into the Black Hole of Doom.
If that's your strategy, you've already lost.
But if you know how the game is played, a Dream Job can be only weeks away.
You can begin taking steps to find your Dream Job IMMEDIATELY — I'm talking about in the next hour — but you can't achieve the results I've mentioned if you don't follow these rules.
Like the trite old advice to “keep a budget,” most career advice is incomplete and ineffective. WHY? Because it's written by people who have never had Dream Jobs or even spoken to top performers.
“Testing their advice by helping real people find real Dream Jobs?” Forget it.
This “conventional wisdom” will kill your chances of finding a Dream Job. You need proven tactics built into a strategic, systematic approach. The difference is night and day.
Most career experts skip the psychology part of finding a Dream Job. WHY? Because they don't know how. And imagine if they actually tested their advice and discovered that almost none of it works. A lifetime of work…
Tactics are important — and I've uncovered some of the most powerful career techniques, like the Closing the Loop Technique (to maintain relationships), The Moneyball Technique (to dramatically narrow all your Dream Job-related tasks into 2 key measures to track), and specific word-for-word scripts for negotiating $10,000+ raises.
But you need more than tactics.
In the extensive testing I ran for this course, I found that having all of these tactics didn't help without the right psychology behind it. In fact, I gave the EXACT SAME TACTICS during the SAME time period to two different students…and one succeeded, finding multiple job offers and negotiating a 30% raise. The other? She never got past her psychological barriers.
Same tactics. Different result.
What's the difference? Psychological barriers.
See, almost all career advice we get is focused on tactics. But if you have psychological barriers “filtering” out the advice, it doesn't matter how good the tactics are. Both of these students got extremely powerful techniques. But only one was able to put them into practice. She now loves her job and beat out people with years of experience. Unfortunately, the other was paralyzed by indecision and too many options.
But what if you had a personalized, step-by-step guide that showed you how to systematically shred your own barriers? Suddenly, all the tested tactics would be dramatically AMPLIFIED because you'd be in total control.
Combining deep psychology with proven tactics and a strategic system that consistently delivers results is like throwing gasoline on a fire.
Ever wonder why top performers seem to achieve such incredible gains SO QUICKLY?
When you put it all together:
Think about what this would mean in your life.
WHAT IF… every morning when you woke up, you had a step-by-step road map to every part of your job hunt waiting for you? And not just any job hunt, but the search for your DREAM JOB.
WHAT IF… instead of just sending your resume in through the front door — what if you walked into an interview totally comfortable… because you'd already taken the hiring manager out for coffee?
WHAT IF… you knew exactly what to say in the interviews and negotiations … because the hiring manager had actually told you his exact hopes, fears, and dreams?
You can do this.
My students have done it (yes, I added a little help with my word-for-word scripts to use in every situation and email) and the results were jaw-dropping.
“After a month of no work in February, had three job offers in 2 weeks in late March 2011, took one, leveraged it for another for more money [and] benefits.”James M
“I just scored myself a $10,000 raise on an offer that was already a few grand over my current contractor position!!!! The best thing is that all I have to do is show up to the same job tomorrow and keep doing what I’ve been doing.”Marshall
“I had an interview today and I used everything you talked about, the recruiters were nodding all the way like you said I stopped talking at one time to take my breath, and one of them leans forward and tells me to go on, this is exactly what we are looking for :)”Hitch
“My current salary is in the low $40s. Today I got a six-figure offer plus a generous profit sharing plan. No one I know has ever gotten a 150% raise. Oh and they're giving me a manager's title.”Christopher Shen
“Just got an offer for my dream job this morning using your videos and strategies....he offer was 40% above the national recommendations, 28% above that of local universities, and 4% above local industry.”Susan
And most important, these tactics are TESTED.
I know the feeling of wondering whether a course is right for me or not. You want to know that this will work for you, not just people who went to a certain college or live in a certain part of the country. You want to know that this isn't just a series of random ideas, or an “upsell” to another program. You want to know the whole system WORKS — that I'm not wasting our time.
You want results like this:
“I used a variety of your material to land what I would consider my dream job and then implement your negotiation techniques to nearly double my salary. Thank you!… Prior: $80k New: $150k.”Don
“I am getting crazy response rates with everything I do… Just today I lined up 10 ASL interpreters for a 5 store market in less than an hour; everyone else had given up. I also put together a 12 person film crew today with one email in less than 10 minutes. I was not capable of this before Dream Job Elite, insane!”Daniel R.
“The interview advice and briefcase technique got me a job offer on a single phone interview.”John
“I now head up my company's Canadian operations and am responsible for the campaign management of our most high-profile international clients. Moreover, I actually love what I do! I cannot tell you and Ramit how much my life has improved, Aarash. My relationship, my family life, my financial life and my sense of self and confidence have gone up 1000%.”Sarah M.
You can do this.
Dream Job is NOT an ebook stuffed with “filler” content to get you to buy another, more expensive product.
It's NOT a set of vague promises and “tips” you can find for free on Google.
And it's NOT something you'll buy, read for 2 days, then toss aside to “read later.”
Instead, $250,000 and 18 months of research went into creating a step-by-step program that will almost FORCE you to find your Dream Job.
I tested every piece of the course on people of all ages, interests, genders, and educational backgrounds.
(I wouldn't dare release Dream Job until I'd tested every aspect of it so you could get the absolute BEST — and never have to wade through even one “time-wasting” tactic. And now you'll ride on the shoulders of thousands of others who have contributed to this all-new course.)
But premium content isn't enough. I didn't want to just tell people how to find their Dream Job. I wanted to push them to ACTUALLY DO IT.
That's why I built custom Dream Job software to hold you accountable and keep momentum going.
And developed a system that gives you the best tactics AND helps you develop the psychology you need to win.
A system that you can use again and again over the course of your career…to leap from promotion to promotion, success to success.
As I've said before, from the start I've been 100% committed to making this the best course of its kind available.
You'll learn the subtle writing techniques to “control” the attention of your reader, including how to highlight your experience in the best possible way — completely ethically. The very same techniques I used to land jobs at companies like Google.
In many cases, you'll already know the hiring manager, instantly separating you from other candidates!
You'll learn how to identify people ALREADY in your network (yes, they exist…even if you're not sure who they are, yet) and learn exactly what to say to get their attention. Don't worry about being nervous. You'll be armed with tested scripts at every step of the process, including reaching out, the actual conversation, and the often-ignored (yet critical) followups.
You'll learn the deep strategy of creating a perfect, genuine answer. Whether you're socially fluent or shy, you'll become masterful at communicating your key messages — even when you're put on the spot. You'll have access to hours of before-and-after interviews, including interviews with some of the masters who taught me.
How do you engineer a bidding war so you start your new job at the top end of the pay scale? How do you negotiate your salary so you're paid thousands more than someone who didn't know how to ask? How do you turn down an offer without burning bridges?
You'll have access to step-by-step guides and the scripts to use so you're never confused about the next step.
Beyond the powerful tactics, you'll discover the “invisible anchors” that have been holding you back …then you'll see exactly how to tweak your Dream Job system to automatically address and overcome them.
You will NOT close any doors, but you will begin a rapid “testing system” — using the Window Shopping Test — to quickly determine which idea is worth pursuing. You'll use our systems and tools to develop a list of potential Dream Jobs…then ruthlessly eliminate one idea after another — until you've found 3-5 that you would love.
Remember, you won't simply get a list of “random Dream Job ideas” thrown at you.
Let's be honest…ideas are easy. If you’ve ever gotten a “magical” idea…but then didn’t know what to do…or didn’t follow through……you know that the idea is the easy part.
What matters is taking action and having help at every step of the way so you're almost FORCED to find your Dream Job.
Imagine… just weeks from now, waking up every morning and being excited to go into work.
What would it mean to you to know you have a lifetime of working on the things you love?
Of being paid what you're worth?
Of never worrying about being “stuck” at a job you hate?
Of being the envy of your family and friends?
Of being able to afford the lifestyle you want?
Of never having to worry about layoffs or the economy again?
Of being fulfilled in your job?
“Find Your Dream Job” is an 8-week, online, HD video course that covers the ENTIRE process of your Dream Job search.
From figuring out what your Dream Job is to negotiating a signing bonus when you land it — and all the key steps in between — this course include everything you need to know.
“I have to say that [your negotiation video] was PURE GOLD. In the past few months I have seen countless websites (and books) that talk about salary negotiation, but this was by far the best material I have seen. Here’s why: 1) the video showed “what to say” to handle objections in negotiation, but more importantly, 2) presented it in the framework of a video of a mock salary negotiation- with notes throughout- AND 3) offered a discussion at the end that dealt with the psychology behind the negotiation. Personally, I feel like the words are only the beginning of understanding something. Non-verbals, intonation, tone, etc. are important and you can’t get that in a script.”Corinne B.
“I successfully found and landed my first dream job, using many of the techniques learned in the Dream Job course.
Here's the exact text from my friend at the company who told be about the position: "You killed it man, I've never seen [hiring manager] that excited. She said people were fighting over which team you could join."
Before the success I felt unmotivated and without direction. I had a few strong mental barriers (worrying excessively about picking the right job, worrying about switching industries with little experience). Now I feel incredible; everything about my life has taken a step forwards, and I see my job as a tool within my career and my overall life. This mental shift alone was probably worth the price of the course.”Barry Wright
12+ hours of new HD video. Fine-tune your career and social skills with dozens of 1-on-1 studio coaching sessions with Dream Job students.

Dream Job 2.0 includes all-new videos:
24+ Dream Job Field Reports. Get full access to these first-hand accounts from Dream Job students who went through the program before you. Follow along, module by module, as they catalog their successes, failures, and lessons learned. Includes commentary from Ramit.
New-and-improved interface. I've invested over $100,000 making Dream Job 2.0 easier to use than Dream Job 1.0, whether you're on a computer, smartphone, or tablet.
I carefully studied thousands of pieces of student feedback, and I heard you loud and clear: Dream Job students wanted more access to other students...and to ME.
Announcing these two never-before-announced additions to Dream Job 2.0:
The Dream Job Answer Bank. I've built a new feature that makes Dream get more and more powerful with each student that joins. You'll get access to thousands of other students' questions -- and my answers -- all tagged and sortable. What do you do if you want to change industries from fashion to tech? How do you respond if a hiring manager won't return your emails? We have answers to those exact questions -- and you'll continue getting more and more answers through the Dream Job Answer Bank.
Access to 100,000 contacts via the private Dream Job LinkedIn group. It occurred to me -- as we're all building our own networks, why not connect us all? Who better to help you build your network than other Dream Job members? Think about it -- what if another Dream Job grad worked at your Dream Company? Or they were already doing what you really wanted to do? You already speak the same DJ language, so chances are you'd easily connect.
Think of this group as your very own alumni organization: The value of Dream Job membership grow year after year.
The math is simple: If you know 10 people, and they each know 10 people...that's 100 connections in your network. If you know 100 and they each know 100...that's 10,000. The numbers scale quickly.
That's why I created a special networking group on LinkedIn just for Dream Job students. It's completely private -- only group members can see or search for the group on LinkedIn. No one will see it on your profile. And it's yours, as part of being a Dream Job member.
You'll never be alone. The custom Dream Job program includes access to other students and instructors. If you have a question, you're now part of a network of other ambitious top performers eager to help you out.
You'll get even more tactics, scripts, teardowns and hacks than I couldn't fit into the lessons. The Dream Job “Vault” contains a whole second course worth of content you've never seen — including hours of video, ready-to-use email scripts, worksheets, teardowns, and word-for-word conversational scripts.
Blunt, honest answers to your toughest job search questions. I'll always tell you the truth. Oh, you make $35K, work at Target, and you expect to make $250K in 12 weeks? Not gonna happen. I'll candidly answer your questions to show you how to make pivotal changes — and I'll tell you when you're wasting your time. I've identified the stickiest questions and built answers right into the course. Each week includes a custom, growing FAQ to address any new questions that pop-up.
Dream Job gets more powerful with each new student. Each new student who joins contributes their unique stories and lessons about applying the Dream Job material. Curious if a project manager in Kansas has used the Negotiation ARMS Technique? Wondering if a film student has tried ***? Ask in the Dream Job community and get ultra-specific answers to your specific situation.
You can take the entire course any where you want. Take the Dream Job lessons on your commute…or at the gym…or on the train. On your iPad, iPhone, or computer. The entire course is downloadable and portable on HD video and high-quality audio. Full transcripts included, of course.
Lifetime access. Maybe you need to “pause” the course to take a vacation. Or you're getting married. Or you simply need to focus on something else. That's no problem. You have lifetime access, so pause and resume whenever you like. You can use it to find a Dream Job now, then use it again to double your results in a few years.
It's important to know that Dream Job will work for you.
You've seen my free material, which I aim to be better than anyone else's paid material.
So imagine what the actual Dream Job course material actually includes.
Luckily, you don't have to imagine. Here are actual results from my students.
As you read these, ask yourself: What if I could get even HALF of the results shown here? What could a small adjustment mean to the rest of my life?
“This past week I reached out to a number of contacts, more specifically, a group of alums. I am just absolutely floored by the positive responses that I’ve gotten. Literally, all of them got back to me in a matter of hours.”Jessica
“I used the negotiation strategies in a discussion with my manager about a raise. He was blown away…. After I presented my ideas to him, he basically told me how to get 2 salary increases during the calendar year 2012, which I had not even considered, and said he would stand behind such efforts.”Claude J.
“I feel remarkably more confident about myself…. Filled with all the confidence DJE has afforded me, I acquired a job I was underqualified for and have filled that role beyond the expectations of my leads.”Michael S.
“My confidence levels skyrocketed… During the course of the program, I got offered a position that I didn’t apply for, and was asked to meet with hiring directors in a different department of my agency.”Robert S.
“Ramit, last week I negotiated my salary for the first time using your techniques. I will say I had very little practice using the technique as I watched the negotiation techniques module the day before. It went pretty much the way you explained it plus I used the scripts. I negotiated an additional $3K increase above the high end of the salary range.”Mario Flores
“My last meeting with a Hiring Manger got the comment, “Wow, you know your stuff.” This of course is for a role I have never officially worked a day in my life. Dream Job will put you in control of your career, earn the respect of experts who already have your dream job, and not sugar coat any part of the process.”Daniel R.
“The advice and skills I gained in Dream Job in just 8 weeks would've literally taken me years of trial and error to figure out on my own. I don't know of any other career resource like Dream Job on the market either—make the investment so you can spend your time and energy on actually landing great job offers, and not on trying to figure out how to get them at all.”Logan Y.
“I used the My Dream Job system to land a job I was underqualified for in a completely different industry in a city across the country with an extremely competitive compensation package.”Luke Whiting
“I landed a brilliant job (actually half a dozen)… and used your techniques to negotiate my salary up by 200% during the interview.” – Chris F.
“I went on two interviews at competing companies in January/February 2011, culminating in an offer two weeks ago. I was able to use the offer to motivate my employer to speed up the salary adjustment they had promised. Actually, they more than met the competing offer, and topped it. I accepted the offer yesterday to stay with my current employer for a $21k salary bump.” – Paul
“I am very close to hitting the 100k mark just five years after finishing my school and I can safely say that I probably make more money overall than my peers and classmates.” – Aleem
“6 calls calling me in for an interview. In the space of 24 hours. No cover letter. Crap e-mail. Great CV. Love it. Your work is GOLD.” – Nathaniel C.
I haven't looked in 7 years. It has totally changed. Everything is online now.
What Ramit said that changed my life was that you don't delegate your future to someone else. And that's what I was doing, I was delegating my career to my company.
I am graduating in 4 months. What am I going to do? Do I have a guide for the job hunt? Am I just going to wing it?
I wanted to make sure I did it the right way. And that I was able to accept the position that I deserved, in the industry that I actually wanted to be in.
I'm a very busy person - I didn't have time to write my own scripts to get in front of the right people.
I went from making around $60,000 a year including my bonus, to making $85,000 to $90,000 a year with my bonus. Huge difference, same job.
Every part of the system played a role. In everything from landing an interview, to blowing the interview out of the water, to negotiating my salary.
I met at least 10 mentors that I still keep in contact with, and have been really valuable in guiding me through my career decisions and just decisions in life.
There are... so many people in my network that I haven't tapped into out of my fear of being perceived as annoying them. I'm definitely going to be tapping into them now.
[Dream Job] helped me realize what I want to do with the next point in my career. On top of that, how I was supposed to get there.
I'm selective about who I allow into my programs. I'd rather work with a small group of people who are committed to taking action, than a large group of wannabes who are looking for the latest magic bullet.
I'll let my policies speak for themselves. Dream Job is not for you if…
That last rule has cost me hundreds of thousands of dollars over the last couple of years, but it's the right thing to do. I'm not interested in opening this course to everyone — just the right people.
If you've ever purchased a career book, you know what usually happens. You read it, learn a bunch of tactics, maybe even follow the advice to create a list of your interests and skills….and then what? When was the last time you opened it? How do you go from a book to your Dream Job?
“I obtained a new executive position in my company and crushed the 100,000€ ceiling. Just by being prepared at the right time. I owe you a beer.”Thierry D.
The initial salary offered was exactly what I had in my mind, and I negotiated a $2k increase on top of that… a total of a $17k increase from my current position (40k to 57k).”Megan M.
“They had offered me a package that was A LOT less than I’m making now… all I told the recruiter is that I wanted her to go back to the comp team and get more money in the base. Next day, she comes back with an offer that’s 6K higher.”A.J.
“I'm writing you from my work account where I am a controller at a start up. That wouldn't be out of the ordinary except that I got this job with just 3 years experience. They were looking for someone with 5-7 years.”Kevin W.
“I used your outline (especially the interviewing and negotiation) to get an offer that is more than $20,000 above my current salary (with only 4 1/2 years of experience) in a field that I am really excited about.”Dan Comperchio
Dream Job forces you to take action. Each week, you'll have specific action steps to follow, with specific amounts of time specified. You'll receive email reminders and constant updates of how other students are doing. If I notice you haven't followed the action steps, my team will reach out to make sure you're on track.
Eliminate time-wasters. I'm ruthless about eliminating time-wasters that most candidates pursue. Social media? Not going to happen. Submitting your resume mindlessly without deeply understanding what the hiring manager wants? Not on my watch. Instead, you'll focus on what's important, while others will pursue shiny tactics. In the end, you'll sail right by them — and they'll never understand the game being played around them.
The extraordinary Dream Job Vault. Instead of high-level advice like “Take an expert out to coffee,” you'll get access to a vast collection of ready-to-use scripts that span the entire Dream Job process. Need an email to reach a busy CEO? It's in the Vault. What should you say once you get to coffee? Use the conversational script from the Vault. Not sure what to say if the hiring manager turns down your negotiation request? The Dream Job Vault has a video specifically on that.
A trusted guide who's been there. Here's why I can help you. I Graduated from Stanford, where I interviewed against some of the world's top companies, securing job offers from Google, Intuit, and a multi-billion-dollar hedge fund. And then I taught my techniques to thousands of students over the last 10 years, recording each training and improving my teaching methods each time.
If you want to engineer bidding wars, I've done it. If you want to know how to beat out people with 5 years' more experience, I can show you the 4-step process I used to do exactly that when I beat out several Stanford MBAs…as a sophomore. If you want to know how to compete against the world's best and win
There's a reason Fortune Magazine called me “Generation Y’s favorite personal finance adviser” and quoted my focus on systems.
Like [Tim] Ferriss, Sethi specializes in coming up with simple tweaks — or hacks, as productivity junkies call them — that his readers can apply to their lives.
Sethi and Ferriss are good friends. “There are a handful of people who are very analytical and good at testing and have, almost as a side effect, built these personal brands,” says Ferriss. “Ramit is one.”Fortune Magazine, December 2011
I feel privileged to have learned this material, but until now, only a few people have had access to it. Now you can use it for your own Dream Job search.
Surgically diagnose your weaknesses and turn them into strengths. Dream Job automatically diagnoses your problem areas and shows you specifically where the “broken links” in your chain are.
You've submitted your resume but you're not getting interviews? Dream Job will show you specific tactics of how to improve your marketing materials — including before-and-after cover letters, resumes, and tested scripts.
You're getting interviews, but you can't close the deal? Dream Job will show you the specific differences between a “nice” interview and locks down a job offer.
Don't re-invent the wheel. When you find a strategy, technique, or tactic in Dream Job, you know it works. That's because I go to extreme — some call it obsessive — lengths to test my material before it ever sees the light of day. Here's how I built Dream Job.
Guaranteed. No other career coach can make a guarantee like Dream Job. No MBA program will stand behind its ability to help you secure a Dream Job. But I can. If you don't get the results you want, hold ME accountable — and get all your money back. 100% of it. That's how confident I am in the Dream Job system.
If you're interested in making a change that will last the rest of your life, you have options.
Get an MBA / grad school. Top performers know that it's only worth going to business school if you're in a top-10 MBA program. (Usually, top 5.) Price: $150,000 — and no guarantee of a job.
Career coaches. Some are very good, while others are not. Some are specialists, others are generalists. How do you know which is which before you start working with them? Do you have the time to investigate? Price: $150/hour. Guarantee: rare.
Resume review: Typically $300-$500. Some are good, but others are not. Guarantees: rare.
And even MORE options:
Of course, there is one other option: doing nothing. It's the most expensive of all. You already know that a simple $5,000 raise in our 20s can be worth $1 million over our career — and that's just one raise. Top performers tend to get raise after raise…not to mention the happiness of finding something we really excel at.
There's a different option. Dream Job is unlike any of these options. It's tested, affordable, and proven to work. And if it doesn't? Unlike each of these options, it offers a full, 100% guarantee.
I'm extending a personal promise that none of the above options offer.
I guarantee that by taking this course, you'll have more job opportunities than ever before. More interviews, more job offers, more confidence that you're on the right track.
I can't guarantee you a Dream Job in 8 weeks. I'd be suspicious of anyone who could promise that. This is a challenging process and through rigorous testing, I've simplified the steps down as much as humanly possible. But you still have to do the work.
I've made it as easy as possible for you to find your Dream Job. The Vault contains the exact, word-for-word scripts to use to meet hiring managers, ask them the right questions, and even interview and negotiate for your job.
If you fall behind, one of my staff members will reach out to you to check on you.
But I wanted to go a step further.
I encourage you to take the ENTIRE DREAM JOB COURSE. Put my approach to the test. If it works, I'll be thrilled — and your life will be forever changed.
If you're not amazed at the quality of this program... send me an email at ANY TIME during the 60 days and show me you're doing the exercises and not getting results. I'll refund 100% of your price, I'll even eat the credit-card processing fees, and we'll part as friends. I built this and I take responsibility for it.
And I've seen the results that Dream Job can bring to regular people, which is why I'm so confident that I can make this personal promise.
Your career is a long time. We can either wait to “figure it out” for 20 years….or we can take a step forward now. Sometimes, it just takes a little nudge to make all the difference.
If it works, nothing will ever be the same. And if it doesn't, you've lost nothing and learned from highly tested email scripts that will, at the very least, boost your productivity. This 100% ironclad guarantee is for the entire 8 weeks of the Dream Job course — and it's my privilege to offer it to you to remove ANY DOUBT of what you can achieve. I know you can do it.
There's one more extraordinary gift you'll receive.
A few months ago, I offered a small invite-only program called Dream Job Elite. For 12 select students, I personally walked them through the Dream Job system, including weekly calls and personal help writing persuasive emails.
Then I invited them to New York for a private weekend where I taught them some of my inner techniques on interviewing, negotiation, body language, and building terrific relationships.
These students happily paid $12,000 to learn these lessons from me personally. There was a 100% satisfaction rate.
Of course, I won't be able to give you the live interaction that my Dream Job Elite students got, but you WILL get the actual recordings of the event (not available anywhere else) and the live weekly calls with my detailed answers to their toughest questions.
The results of this program have been priceless:
“It was worth hundreds of thousands of dollars to me in terms of how it changed my earning potential and that’s just cash. Then we talk about how happy I am now, **how happy and fulfilled I feel, how excited I am to wake up every day.”

“The biggest overall message that helped me get a raise and take a “risky” plunge into a new job was [Ramit's] constant reiteration that nothing will be accomplished without taking action.”Julie, Dream Job Graduate
“The cost of the course isn’t holding you back – the fear of failure is. It’s time to invest in yourself if you ever want to overcome the dreaded 'someday' disease.”Royce S.
“Yesterday, I just accepted my dream job! I still cannot believe I will have the opportunity to work for such an amazing company. I am 100% sure that I would not be in this position had I not purchased your system, it is without a doubt the best investment I have ever made. Not only will I be getting more than a 30% pay increase off the bat (which of course pays for your program many times over), but I will have the opportunity to more than double my current salary after 2 years once I move to the next level.”Matthew Bruno
“I was offered the first job I interviewed for (one I was very happy to take), the exact money I asked for with no need for negotiation (a 22% increase on my current 6 figure base) plus relocation expenses. It was a complete revelation - they wanted me to take the job so badly I didn't need to negotiate at all! So basically I couldn't lose. Who says your Dream Job course is only for new graduates? THANK YOU!”Jennifer Cook
“'m so pleased to tell you that once I committed to Dream Job, I had three terrific offers less than one month after I began.”Alicia Fowler
“Joining and starting this course has motivated me to approach everything with a renewed sense of purpose and clarity… I am beginning to approach aspects of my current job with a vigor and inquisitiveness that I forgot existed in me.”Robert S.
If you're on the fence, I want to be totally up-front with you.
If Dream Job is anything like my last course, Earn1K (and all signs indicate it is), then you should know what happened last time.
When I initially launched Earn1K, I told my readers that I might raise the price down the road. And in fact, just as I promised and based on student feedback, I doubled the price immediately afterwards.
I may raise the price of Dream Job at any time, so here's fair warning to join now to lock in the current price. Last time, the people who didn't join the first time had to pay 2x what my pioneer students paid.
You've just been through some of the most researched material on finding a Dream Job ever created. You've seen how finding passion fits into your search….you've learned the importance of using a narrative approach…and you've seen countless examples of interviewing and negotiation tactics that produce thousands of dollars in salary increases.
We've all been here before. We've walked out of a class, or a conference, or finished a book and felt incredibly motivated. Now think back to what happened days later.
Did the motivation last?
That's what Dream Job is designed to do — to recognize that we need a little help, a little nudge, and to keep us focused on the most important work instead of getting distracted and discouraged.
Finding a Dream Job is hard. At best, nobody teaches us how. At worst, we're actually given advice that actually hurts our chances of getting our Dream Job!
If you've taken the time to read this, it's clear you want to make a change. You have 3 choices today.
It's your decision.
Now, I want to ask one last favor of you.
This was in the worst economy in 70 years. If you'd listened to the pundits, you would have “just been happy” to have a job. Or you could have taken action, using my techniques, and ended up on top.
If you don't believe my material works, then you shouldn't join. This course isn't for everyone — it's for the right people. But don't let psychological barriers stop you. When we see other people getting amazing results, like the students on this page — and we don't understand how they're doing it — one of our first unconscious responses is to get suspicious. We say, this must be a “scam,” which lets us protect ourselves from having to change.
But if you've seen the powerful results from implementing my techniques, then I want to show you a path that works. I know it does because other students have crushed their barriers and used these techniques to change their lives.
But we also wonder what they know that we don't.
I find it ridiculous when I hear people saying it's not cool to be ambitious. I love ambitious people. I love people who want MORE and are willing to put in the work to get it. I want you to demand more of yourself — to throw away the assumptions that we should be “happy” with a mediocre job, an average salary, and limited opportunities to grow. Look, we're willing to work hard and put the hours in, but we want a fair shot at a Dream Job.
Sometimes we limit ourselves, saying, why should I ask for help? But think back to the last time you got a little helping hand. Maybe it was a teacher who pointed you in the right direction…or a brother…or a parent. Maybe it was a friend at the gym who pushed you to do that extra rep.
We all need help.
Maybe it's that Vault script you use to meet a life-changing mentor. Maybe you use the interview videos to craft the perfect interview answer. Or maybe you just use the Window Shopping Strategy to find that perfect job you never knew about.
See, pivotal decisions are made one at a time. Sometimes, we all just need a little help. And I want to give you that small push to go further than you ever thought you could.
Of course there will always be another reason to wait.
Of course you could put it off or come up with a reason to do it later. But the rest of our life is a long time.
If you could find your Dream Job — this year — what would you give, looking back 20 years from now, to have made that decision today?
If you're done consuming and wishing…if you can afford it…and if you're ready to start finding your Dream Job, then I'd like to invite you to join.
“Job offer for 70K over my 60K last job with a potential for 20% bonus over 10% bonus at [Old Company], plus 25 days of paid vacation as compared to 19 at [Old Company].”Jen S.
“I was a fresh college graduate making around $32k a year. After doing a bit of studying and really putting what I learned into action, I'm now making six figures (a year and a half later). I'm revealing this because I think literally anyone can do this if they just get up and take action.... You'll get results. Guaranteed.”Eric S.
“I feel immensely more confident with my ability to get a job. I have taken as many as 6 meetings in one week and have opened up conversations with people at 4 top companies in the past 2 1/2 weeks.”Chris C.
“I was working 50+ hours a week, at a job I hated, making 34K, barely seeing my wife, with no vacation days, no benefits, in an company with no growth or learning opportunities, hating life. Now, I'm at a job I love, at an awesome company, learning all the time, making 47K (13K bump), working less hours, and loving life.”Vladimir R.
“I've followed your blog intermittently for years, and your Dream Job invitation came at the right time. Hesitantly, I signed up, but I didn't have much faith in the process at first. Then I started the modules, and despite my earlier misgivings, I was impressed and started to enthusiastically own the process.
I continued working through your modules, and ended up turning down a high-level position to take the job I am in now: learning and results management for a high-profile girls empowerment project in Rwanda. This is my dream job, and I wake up each morning absolutely excited to carry out my scope of work. Incidentally, the pay and benefits are approx 50% more than I was making in my previous job.”Kara P.
“MAJOR Dream Job success!!!!
Just accepted an offer as an applied researcher with a late-stage startup. Leaving my boring software developer job at a big corporation. Benefits of the new job:
- Much more challenging, offers cool opportunities for lots of cutting edge research with top scientists in network security. This will be an amazing learning opportunity.
- I negotiated a 35% increase in base salary!!!! (from 91K to 125K). WOOHOO!!!
- My commute used to be 45 mins each way by train. Now it will be 10 mins --- by bicycle. That amounts to >200 hours and $750 in train passes saved per year. Priceless!
How did I do it?? Textbook Dream Job.”Raj B.
“Put simply: When I started Dream Job Elite, I dreaded my job. I never wanted to do the "normal" amount of work, let alone go above and beyond. Pushing myself to do so anyway only made things worse, and my attitude worsened greatly. I knew something needed to change, but I wasn't sure what to do. Post-Dream Job Elite, I have a job that I can't get enough of. I go "above and beyond" for fun, as the job challenges me to be better than I already am. The work is fulfilling, the team is fantastic and filled with like-minded, driven individuals. Most of all, I feel like I really do have the right job for me, and not just any job. That's a change you can't put a value on.”Michael S.

As my parents always say, a year from now, you'll be a year older. What are you going to do?
Been an independent contractor for 2 years now (and a Ramit follower for longer than that), and I've finally gotten fed up with bouncing around from gig to gig without any plan or control over my future.
Hearing all the successful stories, specially about recent grads. All these encourage me to want more for myself. If they did it, why I can't I.
To save my marriage, turn my life around, and have a family.
I want a better work life balance and I want to teach my children the best techniques to landing their dream job so they can be happy and successful in whatever they do.
I graduated from Columbia in Dec 2013 with my PhD in Anthropology. I thought that within a year I would have a fabulous new job. I have been working at my current job through most of my academic career as it offered many perks (like tuition assistance and flexibility) and I learned and grew a lot. But now I am so bored and so ready to move on and grow and I just can't seem to push beyond some sort of barrier to what I want.
I started using the tools I could find for free when I was unemployed and back home from college. I gained some momentum and it was so easy to connect with top performers. I met with someone who helped me with my portfolio and I got to get in contact with a designer that has the kind of career I wanted. However, I got scared, I didn't know how to follow through, and I chose security with the first job I could find.
I recently had to give up a small side job because of conflict with my full time job. So I'm looking for a new interest. I was interested in Dream Job for a number of reasons. 1. You new my objections and overcame them with reasonable arguments. 2. The free stuff you offered in your emails struck me as remarkably accurate based on my own experiences and those who I've hired. So even if your site is a "good snake oil" salesman, you seem to be a good snake oil salesman and think I can learn something from someone that good at what they do.
It's time I did something proactive to take control of where I want my career to go
I am tired of being stuck in a rut. I don't want to waste my time sending out hundreds of resume and follow the generic path which evidently yields no results. I have based this decision on my gut instinct that this program has something that will work for me if I follow it right. The world is changing. We cant use the tricks we were using several years ago. I need to set myself apart. I dont have an ivy league education but I know I have what it takes to be successful in my dream job.
When I looked at the alternatives for relaunching myself back into the workforce, it was clear that the skills I needed are offered in the FYDJ course. Even though I have not worked in almost 8 years, I believe I'll be able to use this course multiple times after getting my foot in the door at the start.
After being in training for nearly 10 years, I am in the position of looking for my first "real" job and have realized that I have no idea what I'm doing. (How to apply for jobs effectively--not really covered in med school.) After sending out CV after CV with zero results, I need to do something different.
I need to want to wake up and look forward to enjoying using my skills and strengths. I need to learn each day. I need to be engaged. I need to be respected and paid my worth. I am not being utilized to my fullest potential. I am not being challenged. I am not being valued. I am now taking action to change that. I am taking a step toward proactively changing my situation to a better state.
I have been touring since 2007 and every week on the road feels like three to me. That is a long time to be working with people that cannot handle "stress" well (this job is NOT stressful) and who put you down in an effort to "build you up." The environment is full of control freaks who think they know the best way of doing something get so tunnel-visioned that they cannot see the forest for the trees anymore... and I cannot take it any more. I do have other interests and also realize that difficult people and control freaks and such will exist everywhere I go, but I at least want to learn and grow more as a person and feel like I am bringing something to the table on a small scale and to the world as a larger whole. I used to feel that theatre did that by educating and by making people believe in the impossible and that they could therefore achieve it themselves, but I don't believe that to the same degree anymore. Theatre is actually powerful, but my voice in it has been silenced.
Was in debt working a brainless seasonal job.
Got a job offer for a 6 month Engineering SCADA position for $30k more a year.
Was able to finally pay off my credit card in full and now have $3k in the bank.
The livestream really made the difference. Seeing you live and getting a strong feel for your personality and attitude made me know that you don't fuck around and are serious about helping people, not just wishful thinking.
I'm not happy with my current situation. I thought I would like it when I made a career change (engineering to insurance) roughly 5 yrs. ago. Plus having a steady income is more important than ever. When I came across Ramit's webinar, there were many things he said that resonated with me.
