I understand the frustration and confusion that career planning can produce so I created the Uplevel Your Position Program. The Uplevel Your Position Program was created to help you stand out in a crowded job market, fearlessly express your abilities on paper and in job interviews and give your career confidence a boost.

IMPORTANT: New Cohort coming in 2022! Enrollment ended on November 26, 2021, for the November 2021 quarter 4 cohort of the Uplevel Your Position Career Development Program. The program investment is $597.00. There were only 10 spaces available for high-performing women of color in social work and human services leadership! The start date is November 30, 2021.


My Strategic Career Management process encompasses three pillars – clarity, credibility, and congruency. Strategic Career Management is the lifelong process of investing resources into your career to maintain or increase your value in the workplace, undertake work that is personally satisfying, strive for work/life balance, and achieve financial security.

You want to level up, but you have to STRETCH in your position before you can Uplevel Your Position. STRETCH is the career development framework that is the foundation of my Uplevel Your Position Program. The components of my STRETCH framework are Service, Tracking, Results, Enthusiasm, Tenacity, Communication, and Hope.

Uplevel Your Position Career Development Strategies:

 Clarity - clearness or lucidity as to perception or understanding; freedom from indistinctness or ambiguity

  1. Fess Up – Admit what you want
  2. Look Up – Focus on your assets
  3. Saddle Up – Prepare for the job you want

Credibility - the quality of being trusted and believed in

  • Show Up – Accept your spotlight
  • Speak Up – Advocate for yourself
  • Stand Up – Commit to advancing your career

Congruency a state of consistency; the quality or state of agreeing, coinciding, or being congruent

  • Level Up – Invest in yourself


Uplevel Your Position Program IS for you if you are:

  • Motivated and ready to level up in your career
  • Goal-oriented and ambitious
  • Know you are meant for more
  • Dedicating to making a positive difference in this world
  • Amazing at what you do/the “go to” woman at your job
  • Have a degree in the human services field (social work, sociology, counseling, public health, education, criminal justice, etc.)

Uplevel Your Position Program is NOT for you if you:

  • Aren’t sure you are ready to transition/change your current situation
  • Need to be convinced of your value or brilliance
  • Don’t want to implement new strategies

My most successful clients are talented, educated, high-performing women in human services leadership who require a good pep talk every now and again when doubt creeps in. They may need a reminder that they’ve excelled/succeeded before and that they can do it again, but we aren’t starting from scratch.

Elevation Is Possible:

  • Imagine if you had your major achievements at your fingertips
  • Consider what it’s like to share your accomplishments without self-doubt
  • You can define success on your own terms
  • Be prepared to put your best foot forward
  • Join a community of like-minded women in human services leadership

You don’t have to imagine or wonder. Let’s make your career dreams a reality with the Uplevel Your Position Program.

I’m Nicki Sanders. A Career and Empowerment Strategist, Human Services Hiring Manager, Social Worker, and Professor who built the career and business of my dreams. I’ve experienced self-doubt as I pondered how to advance my career. I’ve let time slip away because I was too busy to focus on my career. I know what it's like to sit in overwhelm and frustration as you prepare to update your resume and cover letter. I’ve experienced compassion fatigue and professional burnout but still questioned whether I should leave the job I loved (but also hated at the same time). I don’t want the same for you.

I created the Uplevel Your Position Program to help you go from overworked, underpaid, and unappreciated to energized, well-paid, and appreciated.

Only ten (10) women are allowed in each quarterly cohort to allow for individual support, intentional implementation, and genuine connection.

If you want to elevate your career confidence and competence, enroll in the next cohort in 2022 of the Uplevel Your Position Program.
