Job searching sucks! It’s a full-time job in and of itself.
You’re either too tired from working that crappy job all day or too overwhelmed with submitting multiple applications, customizing your resume for each one, and trying to keep track of everything. Each rejection email hurts a little more than the previous one.
And to top it all off, they’re thousands of other people searching for jobs, so you have competition. Trust me; we’ve all been there!
I was pretty successful in my career back in my country, Panama. In 2009, I met the love of my life and was willing to do anything to be with him. Anything, even leaving my country and a job that I loved. Fast forward a few months, and I found myself living in Tulsa at the beginning of 2010.
Let’s just say, as an immigrant, trying to find a job in a city where no one knows you, is very hard. I wasn’t getting interviews; I tried everything! One day, I decided to take matters into my own hands. If they weren’t going to invite me to an interview, I was going to invite myself!
What I did was send a video where I shared about my experience and why people enjoyed working with me. The video kickstarted the interview process, allowing recruiters & hiring managers to see the human behind the job application. I didn’t realize it then, but this was the beginning of my Personal Brand. The best part was it worked! I started getting interviews and eventually landed one of the most life-changing jobs I’ve had so far. Now, I want to help you do the same!
Together we’ll highlight your skills and craft an authentic brand that reflects your personality & will finally get you the attention you deserve. I believe everyone should have their dream job and I see no reason why you can’t be next.
I’m former Software Engineer and Project Manager turned Tech Recruiter. So I understand firsthand, that operating in the job market as an energy-zapped and disheartened job seeker, rarely, (if ever!) lands you the dream job you desire.
Because just like you, back in 2013, I was doing #AllTheThings the career coaches advise, to successfully land a job.
As a recruiter, I kept seeing candidates struggle with the same things, so in 2017 I started a side hustle coaching Project Managers and Software Developers that turned into the services I offer today.
“I want to help you build career equity. Get past the “price your worth” fear. Build the courage to communicate what you know you deserve even if you don’t feel like the smartest, most veteran person in the room.”
