what members are saying

Most of my career, I've landed in whatever job came to me. This time, I wanted to choose a path that was right for me.


It's been hard for me to hold myself accountable to figuring out what I really want to do. Tablestakes was the push I needed.


When I got promoted, I didn't feel confident I could do my job and mold it to the life I wanted. I was able to break down big goals into small tasks and get clarity on what I want next. I also got more open about my real goals with others. I've had a coach before, and this felt just as valuable. I really enjoyed it!


I needed confidence and logical next steps for what to do with my career- out of all the options, which was the one for me? Tablestakes gave me a kick in the pants to make progress on figuring my career out. If you don't know what you want to do, but you know it needs to change, do this- I recommend it wholeheartedly.


Why Tablestakes works

We're like a therapist for work

You need the time and great questions to evaluate exactly what you need personally and professionally so that you can advocate for yourself and apply for opportunities that make sense for you and your life. We're your practical, actionable + streamlined career guide.

Commit to one month of working out what you actually want

Receive a daily prompt for the next month that will help you define what you actually want next out of your career. Know yourself first and build a career that works for you.

How to Join Tablestakes
