Growing up, I was an A student in grade school and high school. I took honors and AP classes, and I loaded up on extra-curricular activities. I even got into the university that I had set my sights on: UCLA! (Go Bruins!) I got my bachelors degree in Economics and I was ready to take on the world!
But finding a job, and landing one, was not as easy as I had hoped. I thought that my education from a prestigious university would be enough for the recruiter. But it turned out that my education was just a small part of what they saw on that oh-so-important resume. And I needed to find a way to stand out among the stack of other resumes on the desk.
Luckily, I had a mentor who gave me some pointers on my resume and helped me develop it so that it would catch the recruiters’ attention. He gave me valuable information that would help me to finesse and perfect my resume – things that I still do for my resume today!
In addition, he helped me with being confident for interviews. I was always very anxious and nervous going into interviews, which affected my performance in the interview itself. He taught me several techniques that would calm my nerves and help me answer the recruiters’ questions, even those that seem to come out of left field!
Now that I’ve been able to climb the corporate ladder as a Recruiter, a Hiring Manager, a Guest Service Manager, and a Training Manager, I want to be that mentor to help YOU succeed in finding and landing a job. The process of writing a resume and interviewing can be daunting but my goal is to give you all my knowledge so that you can start your journey into the workforce as successful as possible.

Interviews can be nerve-racking, but I can show you:
After you land that job, there’s still so much to learn!
