Do you want to regain confidence and clarity, master the job search process, AND ultimately make the successful career transition that allows you to live a purposeful career and life?

I thought so.


from stuck to waking up happy + excited for Mondays!

Do you want to regain confidence and clarity, master the job search process, AND ultimately make the successful career transition that allows you to live a purposeful career and life?

I thought so.

Let me ask a few questions...

  • Do you know what you don't want but are confused about what you do want?
  • Do you want to make a career transition but wonder what opporunities match your skills?
  • Do you feel your work is meaningless?
  • Are you tired of racking up debt and want more $?
  • Do you desire a stronger leadership team?
  • Do you loathe your daily commute or office?
  • Do you wish you had more work/life balance?
  • Are you wondering, "Is this it?"
  • Are you stuck in a "career rut"? 
  • Are you counting down until Friday?
career coach land your dream job

If you've answered 'yes' to any of these questions, then you're definitely in the right spot!

I hear and feel your pain.

I was once in your shoes. People assume because I'm a career coach I've always had my career figured out. That couldn't be farther from the truth. Every college semester, I knocked on my counselor's door to announce I had selected a new major. After graduating, I accepted offers that really weren't great fits and I often found myself challenging my values. Naive, I thought the world was going to be my oyster yet I never felt so defeated and lost. As I collected paychecks, the thought of quitting crossed my mind... monthly, if not weekly. I spent countless nights worrying about the future and questioning if staying or leaving would be the 'right' decision. I let fear, self doubt, and confusion paralyze me.  

But then, things changed.  

One day, after devising a methodical process, it finally became clear to me what my passion and purposes were in life. I researched opportunities and explored what success meant to me. I put pen to paper and mapped out my short term and long term career goals. Once I had them listed, I put in actionable tactics and strategies which led to introductions and offers for positions that would boost my credibility while enhancing my skills. The result? 

Finally achieving career happiness! 

For the first time in my life I designed and chose a career instead of allowing the career to choose me.

I'm not special. I just implemented the steps to gain clarity and confidence.

I am fortunate to coach the same approach to hundreds of heart-centered corporate professionals. 

And today, I have distilled all of my most trusted, proven, successful actions and strategies into this step-by-step system called The Happily Hired Formula™. 

Inside this exclusive one-of-a-kind eCourse contains everything you need to discover, design, build and achieve your dream career. From the exact built-for-success alignment strategies I use with my clients through my signature clarity-provoking, fear-busting exercises and systems, you’ll have everything you need to craft a career that is aligned with your purpose on this earth. 

If you're tired of digging up conflicting career advice and crossing your fingers for responses, this proven step-by-step system is for you. Put your best foot forward to get quicker offers and better opportunities.

Emily Liou CultiVitae happily hired formula

Hey, there! I’m Emily Liou! 

I’m the founder and career coach over at, a blog awarded in the Top 25 career development blogs list on the internet according to Google rankings. Before launching, I spent 6 years headhunting and recruiting top talent for Fortune 500 companies like Google, Facebook and The J.M. Smucker Company, along with Silicon Valley’s hottest startups. After screening tens of thousands of resumes and interviewing thousands of candidates, I decided to share all of my insider recruiting and human resources knowledge to help heart-centered professionals master the job search process through private 1:1 coaching, and ecourses like this one!  

I have been fortunate to be featured as a trusted career expert on The Muse, and my career advice has been featured in articles published on Forbes, Business Insider, Inc., Elephant Journal and Fairygodboss. In the last year alone, I have helped hundreds turn their dream jobs into a reality, leading them to achieve higher salaries, better commutes and schedules, and positions they can finally look forward to waking up to. When I’m not geeking out on personal and professional development topics, I can be found exploring $ or $$ restaurants in the Los Angeles area, rockclimbing, or hiking with my Lhasa Apso, Kang Kang (pronounced Kong Kong).

CultiVitae Happily Hired Formula FAQs

How long does The Happily Hired Formula™ take? This program has 8 modules where one-two modules are released once a week. The reason for this format is to 1.) make sure you don't feel overwhelmed and 2.) make sure you put thought into the exercises each week as each module is a building block. You should expect to budget 2-3 hours each week for the course content and exercises. You have full lifetime access to the courses so you can revisit them as needed through your career evolution. You can also work at your own pace in the case life gets busy.

What if I don't need all of the modules? I've coached hundreds of ambitious corporate professionals seeking a career transition and what I've found is 100% of them needed more guidance than originally anticipated as many nuances show up in the job search. This program is designed to give you full support from gaining clarity to succeeding in your new role. The Happily Hired Formula™ takes out the guesswork of the do's and dont's of each step in the job search process. 

While you could enroll in individual modules in CultiVitae's Shop, this is by far the best deal as there are over $2,000 worth in bonuses and each module is heavily discounted.

What if I'm going on vacation or too busy? This program is designed as a DWY (do with you). This means while you certainly can DIY (do it yourself), a supportive community is also available any time you have a question. You can work at your own pace, revisit any of the modules whenever you need to, and know that our private FB community and I are here to support you whenever questions do arise. You have lifetime access to the course and the group!  

What if I can't make the live Q&A calls? You can share your questions you want answered in advance so I can address it in the live session. The calls are recorded so you'll be able to listen and learn as if you were there.  

Who is this program NOT for? This program is not for people who just want to read or listen to material - you can do that for free online. You probably have too much information... this program is really about implementation. This program is not for people who just want to apply to every job on Indeed. It's also not for people who want to start their own business. While a lot of the material is applicable to other countries, it's focused on U.S. hiring practices.

So who IS The Happily Hired Forumla™ for? This program is for ambitious corporate professionals who are ready to believe any career transition is possible. It's for those that want to actively make a change and design a career and life they love. It's for those who want to develop both personally and professionally. In short, The The Happily Hired Formula™ is for those that are ready to take full control of their careers and get unstuck!
