Career Coaching

Career Transition. Outplacement.
Job Change.

Since 2008 when the Great Recession hit the U.S., Doug Thorpe has been helping professionals make career shifts. Over 4,500 people to be exact.

From that experience, Doug created STRIVE, his proprietary model for job search and career transition success.

Get the Book. Learn the Method.

STRIVE starts with a journey to survey and explore your sense of purpose. Everyone needs to know why you are here.


As Mark Twain famously said, 

“There are two very important days in a person’s life. The day you were born and the day you figure out why.”

Using Doug’s tools, plan, and coaching, you can realize the same success thousands of others have enjoyed. Make that career move or that job change that becomes the perfect fit for who and what you are.
