Full course title: Career Test Drive: Using Design Thinking to Test a New Career Path

"Career Test Drives" are a unique experience that Mission Collaborative has designed to help you explore new industries, organizations and roles. In just two hours, you will have the opportunity to work on a real-world project presented by a DC business or non-profit.

How it works:
We've invited leaders from three organizations (startups, businesses, and nonprofits) to come present real world challenges they are currently facing. Participants choose the challenge they are most interested in working on, then spend the rest of the time working with their team to design and present potential solutions.

What you'll get out of this experience:
  • Get a taste of a new industry by working on a real-world mini-project
  • Meet leaders of three cool organizations (some of whom are hiring!)
  • Learn how to implement Design Thinking to solve problems
  • Meet an awesome community of peers who want to help you build a career you love!

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy
If you complete the program and if you are still feeling totally lost about what you want from your career/how to land the next job after 3 months, Mission Collaborative will personally meet with you to help you figure out exactly what to do differently. If you're following what we suggest and it's still not working, we will give you your money back.
