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.

"I couldn’t have done it without you. Honestly."
"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!"
"I’m so grateful to have worked with my coach at WOKEN. She is knowledgeable, responsive, and overall a great coach - she knows when to support, when to push a little harder, and how to help her clients get out of their own way. I can’t recommend her highly enough."
"The program provides the structure to methodically work through the process of career exploration, job searching, and networking. I love the platform, the ability to move at my own pace, and the promptness of the feedback. I have gained clarity in how my skills can be transferred to other careers beyond education."
"The platform provided an intuitive and well-organized way to approach career exploration and the job search that improved efficiency. I knew that I was spending my time in a way that would have maximum impact. Biweekly coaching check-ins helped me to manage my time and stay on track, and coaching sessions were packed with actionable insight."
"I started using WOKEN at a time in my professional life when I was very direction-less. I was confused and unsure. I had been in a role that was not a good fit for me and what I wanted to do, but I felt stuck and out-of-control as to how and when to make a change. The biggest difference after using the WOKEN platform is a mindset change. My coach's confidence rubbed off on me, really just because I feel prepared now. I feel informed. I feel like I am in control now and that naturally lowers anyone's anxiety. What was the biggest benefit for me was not just keeping myself accountable, but USING the platform's tools to make things easier for me. Tracking who I wanted to network with, which companies I wanted to target, notes from networking calls, as well as questions I wanted to ask. It acted as a central hub to keep myself organized through what I assumed initially would be a very chaotic process. And practically, the direction in updating my resume was SO valuable! ...Who should use WOKEN? Everyone. People who naturally have networking and "career-building" personalities would probably thrive with the platform, but people like myself who find professional networking more challenging would benefit immensely from the guidance the platform provides. It's not magic and it's not EASY. It takes a lot of work, just like anything. But it is guidance. It is specific direction. It is not vague or ambiguous. It is a toolbox for anyone confused or unsure about their next professional move."
"Helping me establish and refine my pitch was HUGE. The early days of focusing on developing a vision for the kind of role/industry I would be most excited about was really helpful in committing to the job search and what I wanted. I also liked the accountability it brought to the job search and having monthly calls to chat through obstacles and wins was great."
"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."
"You've helped me so much this past year and I've found the courage to thrive in a world that can be quite intimidating. I had my 90-day performance review meeting this week and it went EXTREMELY well. It gave me the comfort and motivation to keep working towards my best self, while knowing that I have a great team at my side to help. I wish I had the words to describe just how AWESOME you are!"
"I found the mission statement writing is super helpful. It helped me to find the industry I want to work for and find what jobs specifically I want verse a broad picture. It helped me to find the job opportunities in the industry that I might not think about it before and It is good to breakdown the career things."
