Customized Career Strategy
No matter where you are in your career progression, we can help. You will receive a blueprint for your career strategy which outlines your specific experiences, aspirations, and qualifications for success. Based on our proprietary Personal Achievement Template (PATTM), we will provide you with a step-by-step career strategy to give you the best possible chance at your achieving your career goals.
Focused Career Support
Strategy without execution is worthless. It’s great to know what you need to do, but even better to know how to do it. We will do a needs assessment to understand your skillset and determine what, if any, additional training or education you may need to help you in your career. In addition, we will work with you on whatever you may need for your career success including finding jobs that may be a cultural fit, improving your resume, articulating a convincing story to recruiters, networking strategies, interviewing techniques, and negotiating salary packages.
Proven Track Record
There is no standard playbook for career success. All of the work you’ve put into your career and academic success should lead to your intended career path, but sometimes it doesn’t. Using our thorough career strategy and support process, you will receive a detailed roadmap to focus your career path and achieve your career mission. Whether you are a college student, recent graduate, or have vast experience in the workforce, our career coaches are ready to help you through the process. As current or former employees of top firms like McKinsey, Google, GE, and Uber, and alumni of the most competitive schools including Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Duke, Chicago, and Stanford, we have the experience and training to help.

Building your Story
Work with us to construct a compelling story outlining your experiences, qualifications, and aspirations. Through detailed interviews and our Personal Achievement TemplateTM (PAT) framework, you will gain a personalized path forward. Learn the best strategies for positioning your background for the recruiting process.
Gain an advantage in an element that is the key to getting in the door of your employer. Stand out immediately based on your accomplishments and experiences that you outline in a clearly articulated resume. A common mistake is to develop a resume that looks more like your historical job summaries. That doesn’t work. We can turn your resume into a compelling story outlining the impact you’ve had in your career, academic, and personal life.
Hone your interview skills and strategy through our mock interview from experts who have done real interviews for the very companies you are seeking to gain employment with. Learn how to demonstrate passion, emphasize strengths and address weaknesses.
It’s all about the network. Let us help you take advantage of your personal, academic and work connections to get the job you’ve been looking for. Learn tips and strategies on how to proactively engage with your network to get to the key decision makers. We will teach both online and offline techniques to improve networking effectiveness. These skills are critical for introverts and extroverts alike!
It’s business, not personal. Compensation negotiation is a necessary part of the employment process. You may be excited about the new opportunity, but your salary and benefits negotiation is a critical part of the process because it will set your foundation for compensation growth for the rest of your time at the company. You’ve put in too much work to overlook one of the most important parts of the job application process.
