Our mission is help you find career success in the small Colorado towns you love.
The West Slope is shaping industries in energy, agriculture, manufacturing, outdoor recreation, and even rockets!
To help you make a career here, we are hyper-focused on two goals:
Provide quality guidance to land jobs you love (local or remote).
Help you quickly gain skills to boost your earnings.
Remote Work & Lifelong Learning
The new reality for growing your career in rural communities is through remote work. We support our local employers, but the math is simple -- there are not enough jobs to meet the needs of talented residents.
We are experts at helping you match with the best remote work to earn more and grow you career. And when you start your new job, we're here to make sure you transition smoothly and have a supportive community to lean on. 🤝
The second new reality is lifelong learning. To grow your career and deliver your best work now requires ongoing skill building.
The good news is you can learn most anything online at low to no cost. We curate the lessons you need and provide the structure to quickly skill up and move up. 🚀
Time To Think Wrong
The hard truth is that most career advice follows outdated practices and takes a one-size-fits-all approach.
The consequence is an uninspired, ineffective, and often lonely approach to navigating your career. 😩
That's why West Slope Works is built on two rules:
1. Make It Social
2. Think Wrong
Yes, think wrong. Because you don't build a great career by throwing resumes at crowded job boards. Conventional thinking leads to the same old sameness.
We'll show you how to rewire your thinking to get unstuck and make moves that get results.
You're gonna be great at it. 🚀
A Note From WSW Creator
Hi, I'm Spencer, the lead guide for West Slope Works. I grew up in a small rural community and now live and play in the Grand Valley.
The success and future of the west slope is tied to resilient career opportunities in the digital economy. That's why I'm building this community to help you make your next move.
Before WSW, I started a college-to-career accelerator helping students earn high-paying first jobs. I've worked with startups and top brands on innovation and pathways for career success.
Today, I'm excited to focus my energy on my home community. Come say hello.
“I would absolutely recommend this to anybody feeling stuck or confused about what you want next or how to get it."
