Coaching from startup leaders

Get coached by experienced hiring managers

Feedback from our coaching sessions

"From day one, Emily became a trusted advisor and advocate. She especially helped me with dialing in my story: what I am passionate about and what sets me apart from other candidates. This resulted in a much more focused job search, LinkedIn profile and confidence that I am communicating my skills and experience effectively."
Nicole Jones
Help Wanted Candidate
"You helped me figure out how to talk about myself and my experience in a way that not only made me more confident in myself but also made it clear to potential employers what I was skilled at and what I was looking for. That alone changed my job search strategy and made me more effective in phone screens."

"Help Wanted was huge in helping me polish my resume, prep for the interview process, and broaden my connections and network. In an incredibly competitive job market, I was able to quickly land a new role and I wouldn't have been able to do that without Help Wanted. I would highly recommend this to everyone who searching for new opportunities."
