Learn how we helped Holly to be proactive, structured, and deliberate in understanding her transferrable skills, confidently deciding on which career direction felt most compatible, and successfully pivoting into that path.
We hear people often say, "where do I start?" or "I fell into this career path instead of choosing a path intentionally" or "money isn't enough anymore, I need to find fulfillment at work" and much more.

"I am so especially pleased with the results of my career coaching sessions with my coach at Woken! In a matter of 8 weeks I was able to get multiple job offers, ultimately taking a position at a firm that I have been following for more than three years. After working at the same company for nearly ten years, I needed a change, but the last two times I was on the "hunt" was a terrible experience (circa 2008 and 2012). I was dreading getting back into the market but Woken made it easy. There is a great platform to guide the user/job seeker but I personally benefited the most from the one-on-one coaching sessions. We covered a lot of content in a short amount of time via mock interviews which provided immediate feedback and strategies for presentation and fielding questions. My coach provided me with the confidence and perspective that I needed to pursue the role I wanted, and ultimately I ended up being the "top" prospect. Now, I have the job I wanted, at the firm I wanted, with the compensation I deserve (thanks to key advice on negotiation), and I am truly grateful for my coach’s help!"
"My career coach was a wonderful coach and was great about keeping me calm during the most stressful parts of the search. This was helpful in helping me reach my own conclusion about the type of company I should end up at and making sure that I was calm throughout the process. I was in the middle of a job search process, uncertain about which type of organization I should pursue. I am very happy at a new job that is paying $35k more than my last role. I benefited from understanding the pros and cons of different types of organizations/ industries. Early stage professionals uncertain of their next steps should consider this platform. Thanks for everything!"
"I am just ending week 3 in my new position and I wanted to reach out and say thank you so much for all your help in positioning myself to take on a new direction in my career, and all the research on the WOKEN platform that helped me get into an industry that I'm super excited about. I can't thank you enough for all your help in preparation. I will absolutely be letting my friends and colleagues know about your platform, should they feel the same way I did about the job search before finding you. :)"
"I would recommend WOKEN to anyone who wants to spend a bit of time really considering the best career path before diving head-first into the job search. As a mid-career professional, I was not sure that I needed career exploration, but I got a lot of value out of this step. Without this service, I know I would have wasted a lot of time applying to roles that were not a great fit for me. Having the confidence to approach the process with patience allowed me to land not just a job, but a great job that feels perfectly suited to me."
"Working with my career coach has been life-changing. She has pushed me to better my strategy and mindset giving me the guidance to pursue the results and outcomes I seek. Regardless of the issue, my career coach has helped me look at it from both a high and low-level perspective in order to determine the actions I need to execute and not only focuses on the bottom line but approaches the coaching journey with a focus on all aspects of life. Thank you my career coach for your continued support and commitment."
"I was burnt out and unsure of how to get unstuck. After using WOKEN, I have started a new job that I am really excited about the role, the industry, and the environment. WOKEN kept me on track and kept my morale up. WOKEN is perfect for a recent graduate, a career changer and anyone who needs support during their job search. Thank you! You helped me so much!"
"The questionnaire is really helpful to get me started thinking about what kind of interests I have and where my skills are. It was helpful to research industries and to give me a program to get started and figure out how to transition to different jobs and verify what I actually want to do for certain jobs. The surveys in the beginning were really helpful. I like the call prep - the one that give a quick overview. I also like the cover letter and resume review."
"I’m starting my new job today!! Thanks again for creating a platform like WOKEN which has immensely helped me while I was stuck & on the lookout for my next opportunity. Appreciate the guidance & feedback to help me take my next career step!!"
