Our Mission

Waking up the world to remember that you can and should find a job you love

WOKEN enables job fit early on, reduces job-hopping and improves work engagement, productivity, wellbeing, and wealth potential so that individuals, their companies, economies, and societies thrive.

"He who has a why to live for can bear with almost any how."
- Nietzsche

We created WOKEN to help every professional be thoughtful at every career step.

WOKEN was founded out of sheer empathy, taking on a lofty goal.

Rachel Serwetz

Founder, CEO of WOKEN

CEO and Founder Rachel Serwetz, an ICF-certified coach, has experienced firsthand the lack of effective support for career exploration and job search at several points of her professional journey. On her own, she learned everything about how to land a great job, leading her to secure a role at Goldman Sachs. Over the next few years, she was referred to hundreds of young adults who needed career support, saw patterns in the issues they faced, and came up with a unique process.

After spending a lifetime watching loved ones work jobs well below their potential, and after six years of searching for clarity, Rachel crystalized that her passion was helping others find theirs. Rachel knows what it feels like to love your job and also to hate your job, and worse, to feel in between. She believes that everyone deserves effective guidance to make thoughtful career choices at every step along their path.

Now, WOKEN scalably supports clients to find their ideal job direction in just a few months.
