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.
We are here to help you expedite your years of frustration, time-block your uncertainty, and take control of clarifying your best fit path before jumping into any job search.

"During the past few months, I’ve been working with my career coach to help determine what my next career steps are. I entered the process feeling stuck, defeated and open to suggestions for finding what my path and purpose is. Through the assessment, the one-on-one coaching, the group coaching sessions (realizing I’m not alone and hearing others’ strategies), and self-reflection and journaling, I now feel SO FREE, excited, & relieved in pursuing my PhD in Psychology. During the process, I have been overwhelmed with gratitude for my career coach and her team at WOKEN for her grace and expertise in helping me get there. I now feel like I’m doing what I was put in this universe to do, and I have never felt so much joy or freedom in my vocational pursuits." #gratitude #coaching #freedom #reflection #dothework #getunstuck
"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!"
"The hardest part, for me, was sending that first email to WOKEN, recognizing that I needed the help that they provide. Once I was willing to do that, I immediately gained the confidence and willingness to make the effort and work with my coach and the WOKEN platform."
"Made me reflect on what I really wanted for myself in a regimented way."
"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."
"The best part about the WOKEN process was the guidance/support. I didn't have to think about what was next."
"I was working in a stereotypical dead-end job, with not only no career path, but no idea what my ideal job or career should be. I'm now about to start a new job and career that I feel confident about, both short and long-term. The greatest benefit, to me, was one-on-one meetings with my coach. The assessment stage was also greatly beneficial to my process in that it allowed me to better realize what I should be looking for in a career, both in terms of industries and type of role. The folks who would benefit from WOKEN includes anyone who is looking for direction in their professional life, or even simply looking to pivot. The advice, insight, and self-discovery is invaluable to anyone in any stage of their career. "
"I gained a tremendous level of confidence and clarity about the roles I was seeking and felt confident enough to pass over applying to roles that were not a great fit for me. I established the beginnings of a great industry network and landed a job through that network!"
"The best part was the interactive coaching, makes you have an understanding of current situation and goals. Gave me confidence knowing what I want to pursue."
"I could write a novel expressing my gratitude, what I've gained from your insight and this experience overall."
