Now What? 1) Get the Job

Now that you’ve passed your Acupuncture board exams it’s time to get down to business. That means finding a job. Up until now your education has been about treating the patient, but how do you go about finding your dream job? On sale until Aug.31, 2016!


This course can be used for CEUs in Canada. 

*Important Update* 

Your Now What? 1) Get the Job course is now on Pacific Rim College Online (PRCO). Click ‘take this course’ on the right to be directed to the new course as the LIFT version of this course is no longer available.

This is the first of a 4-part mini-series that provides you with the missing information that most colleges don’t teach. Most new graduates say that they feel mildly prepped to put needles in patients once college is complete, but then feel thrown to the wolves when it comes to starting and creating a thriving business, both through logistics and patient interactions.


Here is some recent student feedback:

“Excellent. Very informative and a comfort to have such support available at this early stage of my career.”

“So much useful information… I found the just working at


one clinic, not several, advice very pertinent, and helped me decide to do that. I found the goal setting super helpful, inspiring, and put my mind at ease having the 3-month plan. I found the packaging ideas great! So much good advice that we did not get in school!‘”

This course is wonderful for someone who isn’t sure where they want to work once they’ve finished school and have completed their board exams. Most useful? 1. The insight into mentorship vs. apprenticeship. 2.Expenses section. 3. The different clinic styles (I hadn’t considered a cruise ship). 4. Areas to negotiate in contracts.”

Excellent, comprehensive, and essential for new practitioners! This course covers so many questions I had as a new practitioner and areas that were not covered in school.

“This course is a great way to settle the nerves of entering a new field. A lot of information on how/where to get started. I didn’t have anyone to turn to for advice but this course was like having a friend guide the way.

“It was excellent. I think that you have another winner on your hands. Even if you provided nothing else from this course, the templates that you share would make the course feel worth it many times over. To have something tried and true to adapt to our own purposes is amazing. Some things, I might not have even realized I could benefit from; other things have saved me bucket loads of time.

Incredibly thoughtful and informative.”

I loved it, so grateful!!”


“I want to get as good as I can as quickly as I can. Well. At the very least, I want to feel like a more advanced practitioner. It is silly not to benefit from all learning opportunities that could make me a better practitioner and advance my quality of patient care. This course, in particular, appealed to me because it offers a lot of practical client start-up/upgrade protocols that are rarely taught in college. I also really like your teaching style and dedication to facilitating student learning. I plan to take just about all of your courses that I think would be of benefit to me as a practitioner. :-)”

“Thank you. A million times, thank you!

“Great, it was so helpful to help me get started with the forms too.”

Thank you for lighting my way!!

I really really liked how throughout the course you kept giving us pep talks, acknowledging that we might be scared and nervous starting off! Good to know this is normal!”

Covered a lot, I did not realize there was so much work involved in setting fees etc.”

“I liked this course and I plan on referring back to it later. It really helped me to figure out what I want from my acupuncture jobs in the future and it asked questions that I didn’t even think about.”

“Amazing. More than I was expecting.”

Enjoyable, inspiring and validating. Some of the materials were familiar to me and some new. Appreciated the variety, demonstrations and samples.”

Up to your Expectations? Yes, and more. Covers all area of the thinking through the process of getting started in this career. Teacher’s own experiences seem solidly qualified her to give this course. I feel the pressing need to get started in the career, yet I would like to know every details before starting… I am thinking that at one point I will just have to jump in…”

“Extremely helpful. I got through my first interview with greater confidence because of this course. I really appreciate all the work that went into it! I highly recommend this course to new grads. Gillian covers all the important items we are not taught in school. It has been a very informative and valuable course!”

*****5 stars

“I just want to express my sincere gratitude to Gillian. Since I took her board exam prep bundle and until now I feel that I’ve been mentored by a very experienced, open, practical, efficient practitioner and teacher. This course and all other courses are super practical, informative, systematic, comprehensive, and fun. I feel supported and more confident in what I do and what kind of practitioner I am.

*****5 stars

“I registered due to the desire to start out strong. This course was detailed, thorough, and inspiring. I found the most useful parts to be the contract/interview preparation, the purchase list (capital and ongoing), and goal setting.”
