Career Contender Project

Darren Hardy

Brian Tracy

The Problem

America’s impressive 5% unemployment rate feels like a lie for so many. Experts tell us that the real unemployment rate in the US is 14.3%. This does not include the millions of underemployed. The number of people left out of the workforce is staggering. Millions have recently left the workforce and cannot find jobs. That’s why we created the Career Contender Project.

The Solution

After more than four decades of success in the training & development field, we decided to give back to the community. We teamed up with world-class coaches, trainers and business consultants and produced the video series Career Contender. Career Contender is a free Public Service Initiative that delivers real hope and transforms Job Seekers into Career Contenders.

The Team

Career Contender is sponsored by businesses and supported by the vision and association of the finest coaches, motivators, authors and communicators to be found anywhere in the world. This team is committed to helping job seekers make fundamental changes in their career planning, interview behavior and job search strategies.

The Opportunity

ITD International offers coaches an exciting opportunity to become specialized in Employability Coaching. You will learn to implement competency-based coaching by utilizing the 10 Success Factors developed by Career Contender Faculty. As a Certified Career Coach you will assist job seekers who want to enroll in ITD’s Online Masters Series Career Contender. The purpose of this specialized coaching is to raise the Employability Quotient (E.Q.) of Job Seekers and transform them into Career Contenders.

The Program

Our coaches do not have to be trained in all aspects of coaching. The material we provide will empower individuals with ambitions for coaching to become highly specialized in helping Job Seekers to unlock their full potential in regards to optimizing their Employability Quotient. Our self-directed Online Coach Program takes only 30 days to study and leads to the designation “Certified Career Coach”. The certificate is provided by our business partner United States Online University (USOU).

The Future

ITD started a nationwide movement around the Career Contender Project to assist one million Job Seekers to find the career they always wanted. There are also negotiations in progress with a national television network to produce the Career Contender TV Series. This powerful and life-changing approach is well-researched and competency based. Millions of job seekers can follow the 12 TV shows, experience the professional development of unemployed contestants and receive the same high-octane training.
