You can't just rely on your technical skills in the US!


The problem with the job search is not the product – aka YOU.

  • You have amazing technical expertise
  • You have worn many hats
  • You know your stuff
  • You have the intangibles
  • You have delivered results

So then, why aren't you seeing success in the job search process?

Because there's a different game being played around us. With different game plays.

Let me share a story about Dave, my friend from my university’s Formula SAE team. Dave and I were hanging out in the design lab one day, and he was talking about an upcoming interview. For that, he was picking parts that he had worked on.

He planned to bring the actual parts to the interview so he could explain the work he had done.

That’s marketing.

The interviewer was an industry connection he made at a recent competition. He had kept in touch with this hiring manager and met her to understand what her team did. Once it was a fit, he could position himself as the solution.

That’s sales.

That’s the secret.

You might feel that you have heard this secret before.

But the problem that you face and the one I faced is no one tells us how to use it. We are not born entrepreneurs who have a great product (which is our skills and our intangibles) and be effective at marketing and sales.

Luckily, I stumbled into entrepreneurship courses from top entrepreneurs such as Seth Godin, Ramit Sethi, Noah Kagan, and more.

They taught me how to think like an entrepreneur in the business world and the corporate world.

I used that to find my dream role and then taught it to hundreds of immigrants pictured above.

Me after the Formula SAE Michigan endurance event. What I learned from my US-born teammates was how to sell their experience and build relationships.

I learned a lot about entrepreneurship from Ramit Sethi (right) and Naveen Dittakavi (left) which is surprisingly applicable to the job search process.

Akshay Apte

Battery Tech Engineer

"As international students, we are looking for mentors. I am grateful to have one in Varun. It is easy to approach him and he has clear methods/strategies to tackle most common problems for an individual searching for jobs/change. He is also resourceful and brings in some examples of past that helped him/friends in making that leap. He has helped me with my job search, building relationships, and salary negotiation. All of which has been instrumental in me having careers at Ford, FCA, GM, and Jaguar Land Rover."

Sujay Deshpande

Lean/Continuous Improvement Leader

"When I attended Varun's trainings at my university, the first thought I had was, 'No one is teaching us these strategies that we should know.' My two biggest insights were -- how to apply for jobs both online and via referrals, and how to negotiate beyond salary for vacation times, WFH flexibility, and faster reviews. Game changer."

Shreeram Makki

Systems Engineer

"Varun simplified a complex job search process into extremely helpful action items. Be it using the 30-second resume test, or scripts to use for networking, or how to prepare for interview answers. These strategies helped me get a job 5 months before graduation! And when I switched, I used the same strategies to get a 50% hike!"

Aditi Paul

"The way Varun transparently and clearly broke down his strategy that led to his virality in the LinkedIn job search and career space was terrific. I highly recommend implementing them and powering up your path to your goals."

Aditya Mahara

"Varun shares methods that simply works. I love that he’s humble, approachable, passionate and always willing to help others."

Anu Ramakrishnan

"Varun is a thoughtful and articulate instructor who gets right to the point. I loved his tactical frameworks and processes for LinkedIn, and how he engaged with the attendees during the training. I look forward to learn more from Varun."

Prashha Dutra

"Varun’s training was one of the best workshops I had ever attended. Varun does a fantastic job of sharing an effective and well tested strategies in the most concise way. I’d recommend his courses to anyone who is looking for high quality information that is actionable too."

What if your job search was different?


What if:

You didn't have as much heart ache and frustration with your job search.

  • You were not refreshing your email endlessly
  • You were not checking up the nth time on someone who ghosted you
  • You were not on your 200th job application hoping history doesn't repeat itself

Job search can be a lonely journey with no feedback loops. Which can cause confusion and lack of understanding about why things are not moving.

But not all is bleak with the process.

  • There is a way to position yourself as the top performer you are
  • Companies hire for the right people in spite of recessions
  • You can network effectively too even if starting from a gap


With the right strategy, mentor, and community.

So imagine if things were different.

  • You know your resume is a great fit for the roles and LinkedIn profile impressive
  • When you opened your email you had messages from HR teams waiting to setup interviews
  • Someone whom you were networking with was happy to talk virtually about your industry
  • You get a referral for an application and they advocate for you
  • You have amazing practiced answers for the interview which gives you immense confidence


That is what I felt when I was getting multiple offers and interview opportunities.

A few years into my career, after learning the rules of this game:

  1. I was wearing multiple hats at an exciting company.
  2. I was getting offers from clients in engineering and marketing.
  3. I was getting head-hunted by recruiters of top automotive companies


All different, yet dream roles.

I got extremely lucky to find mentors I shared above that taught me how everything works in the US.

The luck part was external. What was in my control, was to strategically increase the surface area of luck.

I did that by:

  • Investing my hard-earned dollars in upskilling, entrepreneurship, and communication courses
  • Have literally hundred plus mentor talks with professionals in my industry and outside
  • Testing systems in my career and the career search of other immigrants


Over the years, like I said, I have been headhunted, personally vouched by C-suite executives, worn multiple hats, become a business owning partner, and more.

So I started teaching that to 200+ immigrant professionals offline and over 44,691 (more when you are reading this) students and professionals on LinkedIn!

And now, I am sharing all my job search strategies and personally working with you in a mentorship program to help you land your next US dream job.

What you will get out of this course:

Marketing Yourself

✅ How to avoid applying to 100+ more jobs and instill a job search strategy without burning out
Define your Resonance Strategy to first get strategic, and then balance applying applying online with applying through relationships.

How to create a resume that lands interviews without having to tweak it for each job application
Not having a specific resume is bad, tweaking the resume for each position is a bad strategy too. Build an impressive 1-3 resumes using the RARe strategy and that is all you need.

How to write resume bullets and interview answers to make your diamond-like experience shine
The biggest mistake immigrants make is undervalue their experience or make it vague with jargon. Write bullets and interview answers using the Why-How-What framework to showcase your expertise as diamonds and not rocks.  

✅ How to optimize the LinkedIn profile to be a great Credibility Portfolio and landing page
A lot of the job application is tell-tell-tell. Leverage LinkedIn to Show rather than Tell. Validate your candidacy in your visitor's eye so you get called for interviews. 

✅ How to create a Credibility Pitch to land interviews
Build on your Credibility Portfolio by creating a pitch specifically for the company you are applying to and stand out instantly.


Effective Sales

✅ How to deal with networking and interviewing as someone with no network or as an introvert
Immigrants don't come here with a ready-made network. Even if we have a network it is limited to our peers and people we work with. It can also seem like being an introvert is a massive disadvantage. Build a 50-30-20 strategy to know whom to reach out to and how, even if you have no network or are an introvert.

✅ How to get interviews for the right positions and crack the dreaded behavioral interviews
Create answers for the five types of behavioral questions: Leadership, Challenges, Frameworks, Successes, Teamwork -- using the STAR and WHW frameworks.

✅ How to talk to the hiring manager and HR teams after interviewing
It is tricky to know when and how to reach out to the hiring team after an interview. Build a plan with timeline, scripts, and contingencies for different scenarios.

✅ How to *plan* to be Ghosted and what to do next instead to make things happen
Ghosting is part of the process. Failing to plan is preparing to fail. Use float scripts, Strategic Shares, and Credibility Portfolio to improve response rates.

✅ How to showcase top performance by actually negotiating the job offer
Top performers know negotiating a job offer is expected and not to be feared. Leverage the V-Negotiation System (not based on V for Varun) to get your best compensation and benefits package.
