TwoWks is social software that causes you to take actionable steps toward your goals and connects you to a group of accountability partners (fellow students and alumni) who'll reenergize you every two weeks. We believe that accountability is usually the missing link between motivation and consistency.
How can this help me land a job?
TwoWks will remind you to take small steps toward your end goal. Your fellow students and alumni will become accountability partners to motivate you to keep going for the full six months.
When you look at people who are successful, you will find that they aren't the people who are motivated, but have consistency in their motivation.

What will I be doing?
- Bi-Weekly Reports detailing the small steps you have been taking
- Half-page Dissertations about topics related to your desired occupation
- Building Relationships with Executives over positions you want to fill
- Acquiring Mentors to show your ability to learn from others in the field
- Educating Mentees to show your leadership capabilities
- Volunteer and/or Freelance Work to boost your hands-on experience
- Interviews with people working the same or similar positions as the one you hope for - so you know what to expect
Dedication won't be a question
After the six months, you will have a 50+ page Portfolio that will detail everything you did to make yourself the best candidate for the job. While everyone else will be coming to the interview with a thin resume and cover letter, you will have a robust book that narrates the story of your journey.
