What Is the Career Adventure Guide?

We have been working with Career Explorers from ages 18-60 over the past 5 years.  With each group, we have developed exercises and workshops to help different ages of career explorers reframe and restart career journeys.  The programs have been used by corporate leaders, engineering students, creative industries undergraduates, and entrepreneurs trying to change how they look at career change and how to find good tools to support their career transition journey.   It is a program run by the Maremel Institute, a think tank and learning network run by Dr. Gigi Johnson in Southern California.  Many of the resources are US-based, but can apply to career questions and directions in your own country and environment. 

We’ve created the Career Adventure Guide as a “choose your own adventure” experience for you to explore the “before the resume” and “after the inspiration” decisions of how to support your own Career Adventures and transitions.



How does this help me?

There are lots of online career guides, skill quizzes, and heavily-marketed job sites out there.  The Creative Innovators Club is a program to help you (a) rethink your own storyline and frameworks on jobs, (b) find the right tools and networks for you, and (c) set up a personalized and supported follow up systems to keep the journey and explorations going. 

We all change jobs.  In fact, the average person under 30 changes them more than once every 3 years.  How can you find the right support under these transitions? How do you get started with a solid framework and untangled from the heavy resume-system, un-personalized networks? How can you really learn where the gaps are that might be unique to your own skills or your own areas of passion/exploration/change?

For users who are in their teens through 60’s, there are career pivots and re-launchings that happen at all stages. is launching programs for different stages of life, to build the structures and awareness to help you break out of your own boxes, build skills and relationships, and build systems to provide the social, knowledge, and emotional support you need to develop and expand (and pivot) in changing work and tech worlds.
