LISTEN on the go.

What’s different about my career advice is that I’ve worked IN THE HIRING WORLD for 4+ years! I’ve hired hundreds of people and seen way too many resumes to count.
I know what hiring managers want. And know how to help you articulate your skills in a way that helps you stand out amongst your peers. So you can do the work you’re here to do in the world. So you can ask for more money with confidence and support you and your family in a much bigger way.
The information I share isn’t vague or from some article I read online either. All my tips, advice, and strategies come from real life situations I’ve been part of. My goal is that you learn a lot from this show, take action, and reach out for help when you need it.

  • Gisi

    I discovered Jessica's podcasts after feeling quite lost in my career. After listening to a few episodes, I became inspired and knew it was time for a change. I began searching for my next job. As I struggled to ace interviews, I decided I needed to work one on one with Jessica. It was honestly one of the best decisions I've ever made. Jessica is genuine, authentic, and provides great feedback. I felt so discouraged prior to our sessions, but after working with Jessica, I feel incredibly confident. Working with her has completely changed the way I approach interview prep. I would definitely work with her again and would recommend her to anyone.

  • Carly

    Jessica offers fresh and insightful advice that is beneficial if you’re searching for a new job, or simply looking to grow in your current role, become a better teammate, improve your personal branding, and more. Jessica is clearly an expert in the career coaching space.

  • Gaby

    When I started the job hunting process, it was NOT an easy one. The motivation and support I received from Jess during that time was awesome! Jess looked over my cover letters and resume to make sure they were tailored appropriately to each company's asks. (Yes, this is a thing!) There was a time I was in a major lull after hearing NO after NO from every company I applied to. I tuned into one of Jessica's Career Coaching Webinars, it really helped me get some fire under my a** & go! It was just what I needed.

  • Tram

    I listened to several of Jessica's podcasts and appreciate the honesty that comes through her messages as well as her authentic demeanor. She's down-to-earth and realistic about the job market, especially in the Bay Area. The tips that she provides for resume-writing, for instance, are insightful. Jessica knows the high-tech world well and gives valuable information on how to get noticed in this competitive market: Be specific and considerate of the readers' time; hit the highlights and skip the fluff.

  • Yamina

    While working, I decided to start listening to podcasts instead of music. I was working as a temp, thinking about what to do for my next steps, and I came across Jess’ podcast! I found it to be inspiring, informative and reassuring. She is very good at giving advice and her upbeat personality is sure to make you smile! I highly recommend this podcasts not only if you are job hunting but also if you need a pick-me-up and want to learn a bit more about yourself.
