Career Breakthrough Masterclass - Avarah Careers

If that voice in your head is screaming

“I need a new job!!”

It’s time for a

If you’ve started – and restarted – your job search, you’ve probably found yourself wishing there was a proven, step-by-step blueprint that showed you exactly how to land a better, more satisfying job without the usual stress, hours wasted on job boards, or stuck in a cycle of starting and stalling your job search…

The good news? There is.

Are you one of the MILLIONS of people
who need or want a better job?

And are you spending hours of your time searching through online job boards, trying to decipher job postings, looking endlessly for something that sparks your interest? Are you getting dejected as you read through long lists of qualifications and beginning to wonder whether there’s anything out there for you? Perhaps you’ve applied for jobs over and over again. Only to hear nothing. Crickets. 

You are NOT alone!


of people who found a new job last year got it by clicking "APPLY" online. Just 4%. *

*Forbes Magazine, 2019 

The sad truth is each time you hit submit, you are sending your talent, your skills, and your abilities, along with your time and energy into the enormous soul-sucking black hole that is the online job application system.

And, finding job openings is just one part of a successful job search.

And most of us aren’t even aware of the other pieces.

Tell me if this sounds familiar…

When Jen started her job, it was exciting! She’d successfully navigated a career transition, and was attracted to the new company’s culture and opportunities for growth. There were good benefits and flexibility that she wanted for her growing family.

She could see a future with this company, and the people seemed great.

But that was then.

Within a few years the work became routine. There were management changes, and she didn’t love the direction things were taking.

She knew something had to change. But she kept on coming up with reasons not to make a move. She felt stuck and wasn’t sure how to put energy and intention behind her efforts to find a new role.

Or maybe this is more your story…

When Aaron was job hunting before graduation he took a job that seemed like a smart move at the time. But now, he’s kicking himself. It’s just not a good fit and he’s asking himself…

What was I thinking?

Well, he was under the pressure of finding a job and he went with what looked like it could work.

Especially when we’re early in our career, or are still learning about our work style, preferences, skills and abilities, that can happen. So now, Aaron’s not enjoying the work and feels like he’d be happier doing something else.  He knew there were opportunities for someone with his skills and abilities, but he wasn’t sure how to conduct a job search now that he was several years out of college.

Whether it’s something like these familiar stories, or a new boss, merger, layoff, or a toxic environment, it’s time for a …


Career Breakthrough is an online, self-paced course that will provide you with everything you need to find a new job that’s a good fit – faster and easier than you can on  your own.

If you knew there as a blueprint that could walk you through the most challenging aspects of the job search process and help you avoid the blackhole of the online job application trap, would you want it?

Of course you would!

You deserve…

Z be employed at work that feels good, uses your skills and talents and provides opportunities for growth


Z find that next opportunity without it taking up every free minute or making you feel guilty if you aren’t looking in every spare minute.


Z know the secrets to job hunting success that only those on the “inside” of the hiring game know.


The Good News is…

Finding and landing a better position IS possible. All you need is a guide, a proven blueprint, and some support!

How do I know? I’ve spent my whole career immersed in other people’s careers…

My name is Sarah Baker Andrus, and I’m the Founder and CEO of Avarah Careers. I’ve been on all sides of the hiring equation, serving as a recruiting director, a hiring manager, and a career counselor. And, I’ve worked for a variety of organizations – from a Fortune 500 company, to a mulit-million dollar family-owned business, non-profits, and academia – so I’ve know how the  recruiting process works from the inside.

And, you know what I love? Helping people figure out what kind of work will make them jump out of bed in the morning! I know how to help you navigate through the job market and land that job you really want. My favorite days?  When a client calls and says, “I got the offer!”

After spending more than 20 years as a corporate executive, I started Avarah so I could have more of those truly great days and help others have them too. That includes young adults who may have made a misstep right out of college, mid-career professionals looking to make a move, people who know they have to make a change (looming layoff, toxic boss, etc.), and people who want to transfer their skills to something new and maybe entirely different! 

I’ve got two grown sons, for whom I hope I was a good role model of a working mother. I confess that I’m secretly thrilled when they ask for career advice! And, I’m forever grateful that my husband Brian is an amazing partner, and shares my love of good food, wine and running through Delaware’s beautiful parks.

If you’re here, I’m guessing that you realize what you’ve been doing so far, by yourself, isn’t the best use of your time and resources .

I promise you that using my Career Breakthrough strategies and insider secrets will not only get you that interview faster and with less stress, but you’ll also be able to:


Identify your skills so you can talk about them with confidence



Organize your job search to stay on track and focused



Recognize and overcome barriers that are keeping you from achieving your professional goals



Know which questions to ask yourself to identify the perfect next opportunity



Reach out—the right way— to connections who can help you uncover unadvertised jobs



Leverage your connections in a comfortable way that makes them grateful they helped you in your search with an approach that’s win-win



Ditch online submission roulette and replace it with a targeted approach



Use your definition of an ideal job to help you negotiate for what you want in your next role



Create communication - emails, follow-ups, thank yous, etc. - that is professional and proven



Read a job posting and determine immediately if it’s for you and, if it is, how to position yourself as a great candidate for the role



Uncover companies that could be a great fit and put yourself in a position to be considered for a job before it is ever advertised



Make yourself the candidate that the hiring manager wants before interviews even begin


These outcomes are 100% possible for you, no matter how long you’ve been looking or whether you have just started to look…

Are you ready to follow a step-by-step approach?

One that makes use of proven and up-to-date tactics and actions while ditching all of the time-wasting, confidence dousing activities that kill momentum?

One that’s been my secret weapon for helping hundreds of people just like you get the offers they dream of without stress or fear of “doing it wrong” no matter what their situation?


One that you’ll look back on in a few months as you dress for that successful first day in your new gig as the one thing that changed everything?

If you’ve had enough of wasting your time

on a fruitless job search then I am so excited to share the

Exclusive access to
The Birkman Assessment

Not just another assessment…

The Birkman Method reaches further into personality than any other assessment, allowing for individuals to truly understand not only who you are, but what you need in the workplace.

It is used by Fortune 50 companies and many branches of the US government to help them develop leaders and determine career paths for their most promising employees.

And, it is the single most powerful tool you can have to impact your interviewing skills, by generating questions YOU can ask prospective employers to ensure it’s an organization where you can thrive.

I will give you the Birkman Assessment and include a personal one-on-one consultation to review your results. That’s a $325 value.

AND, Here’s what we’ll cover week-by-week 

Module 1 : Know

Who are you and what do you want?

Want to know why so many people end up miserable at work? It’s because they are so eager to get an offer that they neglect these important questions. We want you to find a great fit, so we begin with becoming an expert in YOU and identify the job and work environment that will allow you to thrive. This module will set you up for success in the rest of the course, and in your career.

Module 2 : Mindset

Building confidence

What’s the single thing that stands between most job hunters and the job of their dreams? MINDSET. Many people sell themselves short when they consider their job options, out of a fear of rejection. That’s understandable, but it’s also thinking way too small and over time it will take a toll on your opportunities and your income. Here you’ll learn to overcome your fears so you can for what you really want and ask with confidence.

Module 3 : Choice

Do I want to work here?

This week you’ll learn the very best ways to use online resources to identify places you’d like to work (hint: it’s not job boards!). You’ll learn the simple, smart ways savvy job hunters uncover companies that are hiring and locate organizations that aren’t on anyone’s radar. And, most important, I’ll show you exactly how to determine whether the company culture and day-to-day work environment are the right fit for you.

Module 4 : Brand

Your professional presence

Do you ever wish someone would just tell you the truth about why you didn’t get called for an interview? The most common reason people don’t get to that stage is NOT that they aren’t qualified. We’ll look at every detail of your professional brand – your resume, LinkedIn profile and your online presence – to make sure they authentically represent you and what you have to offer. This isn’t cookie-cutter stuff, this is personal and adapted to your style and personality.

Module 5 : Connect

Meeting, talking and making connections

With your professional presence polished, you’ll be ready to put everything you’ve learned to the test by reaching out to people in a position to help you with your search. This is where most job hunters get stuck – and you’re going to learn exactly how to overcome the obstacles that stop others in their tracks and stall their search. You’ll learn exactly what to say so people will happily agree to talk to you. And, you’ll learn how to manage those conversations so they are a good use of everyone’s time.

Module 6 : Win

Making applications and following up

This week we pull it all together. You’ll learn—and start working on—how to create a BEAST application that you can get in front of managers who are hiring right now. The BEAST application is a wholly different way of applying for a job – the Career Breakthrough way. It’s Bold. It’s Effective. It’s Anticipated. It’s Smart. It’s Targeted. Now that may seem like a lot right now. But everything we’ve covered up to now has prepared you for this!

So in closing, here’s why you need The Career Breakthrough…

You know you need to make a career move and find yourself completely frustrated by the process or not even sure where to start.

You can see the truth in what I said in the beginning, that every day you spend in the wrong position, job, in a toxic work environment, or out of work costs you emotionally, physically, and financially.

No one ever says, “Gee, I wish I had waited longer 
so I could be that much more miserable at work!” 

In fact, everyone who goes through this process wishes they had gotten started sooner.


With the click of the button below you will be guaranteed one of the seats for this small, intimate group of job seekers who are smart enough to see an opportunity and grab it.

I look forward to working with you and want you to know that I will be with you every week to keep you moving forward, give you direction, answer your questions and ensure you get where you want to go in less time, with less stress, and with a greater chance of success than you can alone.


I’ve downloaded a lot of good information from other career sites, how is this going to be different?

Free information can only take you so far. It’s written for the broadest possible appeal and likely doesn’t address your specific needs. Plus, free online information doesn’t come with the expert giving you one on one coaching like you’ll get by participating in the Career Breakthrough.

You live in DE, will what you are teaching work anywhere?

I’ve been working with clients all over the US and Canada for years. The strategies we’re talking about in Career Breakthrough apply anywhere because they are fundamental to human nature and represent the very best practices in job hunting no matter where you are. Sure, the economics vary from region to region, and we actually address how to handle that in the course (it’s covered in week #3!).

I’m already working and spending too many hours on my job search, I don’t think I have time

Without a step-by-step plan it’s easy to waste time and get discouraged. What you’ll learn in Career Breakthrough will save you time by showing you exactly what to do and in what order so that you spend the least amount of time and get the results you deserve.

What if there are no jobs out there for me?

So glad you asked! You have a choice to believe a) there are no jobs for you; or b) there are jobs for you, and you can find them by changing the way you are looking. Which one you choose will likely determine your outcome.

Is there a guarantee?

Yes and it’s a 30 day, money back, no questions asked guarantee.

I want you to get from where you are to where you want to be and do it in less time and with a greater chance of success than you can alone.

I want you to spend a full 30 days with the materials. That’s right, you get full access to Career Breakthrough without a care in the world.
