A little bit about Emily
As a Job Search Coach, I am skilled at guiding career changers and job seekers through the overwhelming and emotionally-charged job search process. I have close to a decade of experience as a recruiter, which positions me to coach you on what hiring teams look for and how to make yourself stand out as a candidate to find and land your dream job. And this lights me up! I find joy, fulfillment, and resonance in helping individuals find meaningful and fulfilling opportunities and create their own paths to get there.
After a brief stint in nonprofit program management, in my early twenties I kicked off my career in recruiting. I’ve recruited for startups as well as large tech and financial companies like Uber, Capital One, and VMware. As a recruiter, I spent countless hours sitting with hiring managers and diving deep to understand what they look for in candidates. I also spent countless hours coaching candidates through phone screens, interview prep conversations, and job offer negotiations.
After dedicating so much of my career life to recruiting, where my role was to fill jobs on behalf of hiring managers and companies, I had a realization one day that I was going through the motions but lacked a sense of fulfillment and passion that others around me possessed. I almost felt envious that my coworkers and friends had careers they were excited about every day. I realized I was ready for a pivot, and as part of my process of navigating my next step, I enrolled in the Career Pathfinder Coaching Program. Through this pathfinding process, I realized I was always most passionate about helping people find fulfilling jobs and careers, rather than filling jobs for companies. I discovered that at my essence, I have always been a coach. These insights moved me to make the change from recruiting to coaching. Ever since, I have been coaching career changers and job seekers through various steps of the job search process and guiding them to achieve the mindset shift they need to get past their fears and live the life they’ve been imagining.
