The White Box Club™

Support Resources For Career Transition

What is the White Box Club™?

The White Box Club™—appropriately named after the daunting white boxes many employees receive to “pack up their things”—was created to provide live coaching sessions, encouragement, resources, and networking opportunities to anyone who has found themselves laid off, unemployed, or in career transition. There are two clubs: The original White Box Club™—created for traditional job seekers; and The White Box Club™ New Ventures—designed for entrepreneurs and those interested in self-employment.
