When you think about finding a new job, it can be a daunting task. Whether your employer is doing lay-offs or you just need a change, what should you do?

STRIVE offers a short but effective road map to get you through the process, reconnecting you with your own sense of purpose and priority.

If you are feeling stuck or undervalued where you are, you need to read STRIVE.

The STRIVE Model is the creation of Doug Thorpe, who, for over 20 years, has been coaching professionals in all walks of life.

In 2008, during the last big recession, Doug founded an organization known as JMS. It was a career transition organization that has helped over 4,500 job seekers find better, more meaningful work.

STRIVE was presented at the weekly workshops.

Now, the STRIVE Model is available to you in Doug’s latest book.


As a special bonus section, Doug has included writings from his friend and Silver Fox Advisor colleague, Monte Pendleton, to give you the tools to assess and determine your Personal Purpose.

Job fit doesn’t just “happen”.

You have to be certain of your personal purpose so that you can land jobs that fit.

Without being connected through your sense of purpose, no job will ever be truly fulfilling.

Monte’s “Personal Purpose Process” will help you find that sense of identity and calling.
