Wouldn’t it be great if you started feeling excited about your career again…
…began attaining next-level opportunities, and had the confidence to take on these roles?
But you’ve been complacent in your current situation, too occupied with your daily routine, that you haven't given the time to start planning your next steps.
Maybe you’re hoping to finally land that promotion at work or get offered that new role... while deep inside, you're also waiting for the "perfect time" to venture out and try something new.
You’re ready to stop playing small, but the truth is you’re too scared to go for what you REALLY want. So you end up doing nothing at all and remain stuck in a rut.
That's all about to change...
MORE than a Job Title™ is a 10-week mentorship program designed to jumpstart your professional growth and elevate your career to new heights! YOU are the only one who can propel your career forward, but you have to know the right strategies and then put in the work.
Navigating and advancing your career can be tough, and even take you a while, especially if you try to do it on your own. Simply knowing where to start can even be difficult to figure out! I've been where you are, so trust me, I know.
Here's Where I Come In…
My name is Uzoma F. Obidike and I am a Certified Career Advisor™ and educator. All throughout my career, I have faced the feelings of fear and self-doubt when it came to my advancement. There were times when I also felt stuck and didn’t know which direction to take. But with the right support and strategies, I pushed through and got ahead. I was promoted into next-level positions fairly quickly. I have been sought after for numerous opportunities that have all significantly contributed to growing my career. I have also taken big leaps of faith and claimed opportunities that I never thought I could attain. I want all of these things, and more, for you!
As your strategic and accountability partner…
I will help you to repackage your transferable skills into a marketable personal brand that will get you PREPARED and NOTICED for next-level career opportunities. During the program, you will begin building the momentum you need to take your career to new heights. When we’re done working together, you will have the tools and strategies you need to either move up at work, move on to a new job, or make a career transition!
The “Full Bloom” Framework
During our time together, I will use my proven 6-step Full Bloom Framework to help you go from being stuck in a mid-career rut to making MAJOR MOVES towards your next big role!
In just 10 short weeks, you will:

Also, increase your ability to understand and manage your emotions—and those of others—so that you will be able to communicate more effectively.

Develop your executive and leadership presence, so that you can be perceived as more competent, credible, and trustworthy. In addition, package your expertise into a marketable personal brand, so that you can start attracting, seeking out, and accepting relevant opportunities that come your way.
4 | Build Your Platform: Establish your “home base” (e.g. LinkedIn and/or personal website), so that you can be easily accessible to peers, industry leaders, and key stakeholders… and have them coming back for more.
5 | Become a Thought Leader: Create content, or develop an initiative, that will showcase your area of expertise, so that you can create awareness and build trust with those in your industry.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why would I invest money for information I can find through YouTube, or figure out myself?
I understand that you may have some reservations about making this investment. Yes, you could scour the internet for articles, helpful resources, and training videos. The downside of doing this is that you will spend of lot of your time trying to sort out all of this information to figure out the best plan of action. In addition, you may run into a number of conflicting perspectives, which would just add confusion to your process. Investing in this program will give you the structure, support, and accountability you have been seeking. It’s almost like investing in a college course taught by an experienced professor. Except, they don’t teach you this in school. Plus, you’ll receive one-on-one, personalized, attention from me!
In terms of the cost of investment, you will be investing in YOU, which in turn will make you more marketable as you seek out next-level opportunities. I'd say that developing yourself is priceless!! You may not think twice when it comes to investing in an expensive designer handbag, a day at the beauty salon, or that much needed girls trip. There is nothing wrong with investing in the things that add value to your life. Therefore, you owe it to yourself to have a career which will also add value to your life. So don’t wait for your organization to invest in you. Don't wait for the "right time" to take a risk and try something new. The time is now to take matters into your own hands! Commit to a program that will deliver precisely what you need, so that you can reach career fulfillment sooner.
I can just work with my supervisor to create a career development plan, so why should I work with you?
Yes you can, and you should work out a plan specifically for your advancement within in your current organization. However, what if your overall career aspirations extend beyond your current position, or even beyond the organization? Maybe you'll even want your supervisor's role one day! Will you feel safe sharing these aspirations with her? As your strategic partner, I'll help you reach larger career goals that go beyond your current organization!
I can find a mentor for free, so how will working with you be different?
Working with me will not replace the benefits of “traditional mentorship”. In fact, I highly recommend that you have more than one mentor, who can help you in multiple facets of your career and personal life. Your mentors will typically offer you general guidance and support over a long period of time. In addition, they may have more experience and wisdom in your chosen field. My work is different in the sense that I focus on overall career advancement. I do this by utilizing a unique blend of coaching, mentoring, and strategy. When you work with me, I will provide you with a fast-track system that you will be able to implement during and after the program. I will help you to accomplish your short-term professional and career goals with built-in accountability.
Will I actually get a promotion, or reach the next level in my career, by engaging in this program?
As with most things in life, there are no guarantees. I cannot make a promise on factors that are outside of my control or yours. However, if you do the work that we strategically plan together, you will see significant growth in yourself and you will take the necessary steps to create new opportunities. It is clear to me that you are not content with the idea of staying in your current situation forever, otherwise you wouldn’t still be reading this. Therefore, you know that you have some changes to make in order to reach your career goals. There are many ways to prepare yourself. One way is to attend a professional development conference, but that could cost you upwards of a thousand dollars in registration, travel, food, and lodging costs.... You'll most likely get inspired and take down a lot of notes, but then you may leave while never doing anything with that information. You could also wait to be selected for your organization’s leadership training program, which may only admit a handful of people each year. Are you sure that you will be next in line? You definitely have options, but why not invest in a program that will put you in the driver's seat of your next career move!
Why should I join this program today?
If you don't take action now, there is a strong chance that you will remain complacent in the same situation because you may not feel an urgent need to take action. I know this, because people tend to stay comfortable in their roles until their job is threatened (i.e. lay off). Or they start scrambling to get things in order when a new opportunity becomes available. Unfortunately, at that point, it may be too late to fully prepare. Don't let this happen to you. Leaders act with a sense of urgency! In life, you never know when opportunities will no longer be available. In this case, the rate for this program may go up or I may fill all my spots, so it’s best to act fast.
I don’t have it in my budget to make this investment all at once?
Don’t worry! There is a payment plan available.
Is there a refund policy?
There are no refunds available for services rendered. Our time is very valuable to each of us. This program can only be successful if we both do our parts. I am committed to helping you reach your professional goals as outlined in the program description above. I expect that you will also commit to taking the recommended action steps in order to see results.
What if I need more support and guidance after this program concludes?
You are in good hands! MORE than a Job Title™ comes with two weeks of unlimited access to me following the 10-week mentorship. As a follow-up for participating in this program, you will have the option of renewing the mentorship or you can schedule one-hour sessions with me as needed. Both will be offered to you at a reduced rate. This can be discussed by the end of the program.
Are you ready to finally take your career to the next level?!
