Cheeky Scientist Association Diamond will give you access to this information to bolster your job search efforts. Team Cheeky closely monitors data on the job market and we will share this data with you in the meetings. We might discuss new job titles that recently surfaced worldwide, a relevant merger/acquisition, and any other relevant trend in the job market.
  • Generate fresh ideas for your transition. If your job search is unusually challenging, you might need help thinking outside of the box. Take advantage of our meetings to find creative ways to move forward. During the calls, you may learn about a job search strategy that is a great fit for your situation, job opportunities that just opened up, or even an innovation that might create new opportunities for someone with your skills.

Personalized Private Mentorship & Accountability Documents

  • With this information, we will have a better idea of where to focus our attention during the weekly meetings.

Personalized Weekly “Next Session” Workbooks

  • Use the Next Mentoring Session workbook to record the measurable actions you want to accomplish each week and the accomplishment you achieved the week before. This will help track your progress. More importantly, it will help you establish achievable, short-term goals that will add up to your long-term goals before you know it. These are the keys to being accountable.
  • During the weekly meetings with Isaiah, you will review the Next Mentoring Session workbooks and discuss which next steps are more likely to get tangible results.
  • The information recorded in your workbook will allow our team to provide you with personalized advice and make the right decisions.
