Sarah joined in June and had a new job by October.

“I could not have gotten to this point so quickly without the help of IDOL On Demand! IDOL gave me the tools and the confidence to keep working on my goals and in doing so I was ready much faster than I anticipated! Having a community of folks to rely on kept me going and believing in myself!”

Jeff landed a new job in less than a month.

“Before I came across IDOL, becoming an instructional designer seemed like a goal that was going to take me several years to achieve. With the experience and expertise of the IDOL team and community distilled into the courses, I was able to step into the perfect role for me in a matter of months.”

Maedili joined in January and switched careers by May.

“As someone who creates personal finance content, I am very careful on what I make financial investments in. IDOL was 100% worth every penny and more. The amount of resources within the program is unheard of. The community and mentors are worth so much more than what I could have imagined. I wanted my time upskilling to be productive and efficient. IDOL gave me the support, guidance, and resources I needed to not waste time. I started cohort 9 at the end of January, continued with cohort 10 and landed the perfect role for my teacher transition in May. I am forever grateful!”

Rocio found the program paid for itself in three months.

“IDOL did a great job providing actionable steps in a way that encouraged instant application and results. For me, the program paid for itself within the first 3 months through helping me put together my portfolio, edit my resume, showing me how to make my LinkedIn work in my favor, mentoring, coaching, among MANY other things. I have not even completed all the courses and I am reaping the results.”

-Erika Cheek

"IDOL helped me to revamp my portfolio and provided additional tools needed to become a stronger Instructional Designer. Connecting with others in the group along with the weekly coaching calls helped to keep me motivated."

-Veronica Reed

"IDOL gave me the tools and confidence to pursue this career path outside of k-12 education. In less than 3 months, I was able to build a strong portfolio, improve my resume, build a network, and land an IDOL job. I could never have done this without the Academy and its amazing community. I am thrilled to be a part of it!"

-Samantha Collier

"IDOL courses gave me all of the tools I needed to make the jump from teaching to Instructional Design. My interviewer was so impressed with my skills that she CREATED a job for me. I could not have accomplished my goals without the help of my mentors and coaches and the greater IDOL community!"

-Ricky Fisher

"A lot of teachers go about their careers year in and year out whether they're happy or not. They just think, 'this is it for me.'

Being a part of the IDOL family has shown me that I have so many skills that are transferrable and valuable to other industries.

I'm proud to say that I've landed a position with a wonderful Edtech company and I couldn't be happier. I plan to continue with IDOL to further improve my skills and keep looking ahead to growing and learning."

-Jonathan Aker

"Career changes are tough, but they're becoming a fact of life. I tried various methods during my gradual career change (just applying for jobs, university extension classes, self-directed learning online, etc.), but the IDOL helped me focus my energy and guided me every step of the way, on my own terms and on my own timeline. It's the perfect blend of direction and independence. You know IDOL is always there for you, but you don't have to rush and stress over it if you've got a million other things going on (and who doesn't?!). Any career change is a lot of work, but the IDOL has paid for itself many times over at this point, and I'm grateful."

-Leilani Serafin
