Which service is right for me?

The right service will depend on your budget, time commitment, and the way you best need to be supported. If you prefer learning at your own pace and via instructional videos, then The Kadima Job Acquisition Method (kJAM) is your best choice. If you prefer individualized coaching and ongoing personal support, then the Kadima Career Acceleration Program (kCAP) will be right for you. If you only need to focus on one aspect of your career acceleration; then a Micro Coaching Course is the way to go. If you are unsure, please fill out this application and we can provide a recommendation for you.

What guarantees come with your products?

All of our solutions come with a 30-day money back guarantee. Additionally, our Kadima Career Acceleration Program (kCAP) comes with a Better Job Guarantee.

If you don’t, we will either give your money back or you can work with us indefinitely until you land that better job.

What is a better job?

A  better job is one that puts you in a better spot than your current situation. It typically comes with significantly more money, career growth, flexibility, and prestige. However, it is ultimately up to you to tell us if you are excited and that you in fact have landed a better job.

For more info on kCAP, Alan recorded this video.

How long does the kCAP program last?

kCAP is a six-month program where you will have access to Alan, his coaching team, negotiation services, plus support and guidance to help you land more interviews, offers, and compensation.

Do I need to apply for kCAP?

Yes, you do! We keep the number of participants in our program small so that we can give everyone the best support possible. Plus, as part of the program, our team will introduce you to hiring managers and recruiters at top tech companies. So, we want to make sure we're introducing the most qualified and prepared candidates.

What happens after I apply?

We take a look at every application we get and if it seems like you could be a good match for our Kadima Career Acceleration Program, we'll schedule a Free Career Advice video call. We'll ask you more about your career, what you've accomplished so far, any challenges you've faced and give you some recommendations. Not everyone is right for our program, but even if it's not the right fit for you, we'll still make sure you leave our call with some valuable insights. So don't hesitate to apply!

What is expected of kCAP clients?

CAP is a 6 month rigorous program to help you land your dream job. Each week, we'll ask you to complete assignments to move forward in your job search, like connecting with people in your network, reaching out to current or past employees at companies you're interested in, and applying to a certain number of jobs. You'll also be required to attend your personal coaching sessions throughout the program. We ask that you set aside around 10 hours each week to participate in the program. Here is a video overview of what to expect with kCAP.

What happens after kCAP ends?

Even after you finish your program, you'll still have a connection to the Kadima team through our private LinkedIn Acceleration Nation community. Plus, you'll have lifetime access to all our online resources. And, we'll help you negotiate your next offer even if it comes beyond the 6 month window. So you're not just getting a short-term boost, you'll have long-term support and resources to help you continue to reach your career goals.

What guarantees come with kCAP?

Our flagship Kadima Career Acceleration Program (kCAP) comes with a Better Job Guarantee. If you fully commit to kCAP, and follow our Job Acquisition Method, we guarantee that you will land a better job within 6 months. If you don’t, we will either give your money back or you can work with us indefinitely until you land that better job.

What is a better job?

A  better job is one that puts you in a better spot than your current situation. It typically comes with significantly more money, career growth, flexibility, and prestige. However, it is ultimately up to you to tell us if you are excited and that you in fact have landed a better job.

How much does kCAP cost?

The cost of the full kCAP program is $10,997. We understand that it's a large investment — that's why we offer several payment plan options. We've never turned anyone away for financial reasons, and in addition to the Better Job Guarantee in 6 months or less, we also offer a 30-day money back guarantee.

Why does kCAP cost so much?

$10,997 may seem like a lot of money, but — when you consider that on average, our kCAP clients earn over $100k more after coaching with us — it is a worthwhile investment. And remember, we offer payment plans so you don't have to pay it all in one lump sum if that doesn't work for you.

What are the other payment options?

We understand a large amount upfront might not be possible for everyone, so we've got a couple of other options for you. One is to pay $4,997 upfront, plus a 2.5% first year Income Share Agreement. You also have the option to pay $1,997 per month, with a minimum 3 month commitment. We have never turned anyone away for financial reasons, so if you'd like to discuss payment plan options, reach out to us at info@kadimacareers.com.

Is there any tax incentive or expense deduction to coaching?

Career Coaching and Consulting is often considered a business expense and could possibly be deducted from your income tax. Please consult with your Accountant to find out if you qualify for this deduction.
