"Just following up after our call. Thanks again! I really got a great boost. I went from feeling like a zero percent, a negative zero actually, to feeling like a 90% after this call with you, my career coach. Your support and guidance is really helping propel me through this difficult career transition. Change is scary, but it's starting to not be so scary the more that I work with you and the platform. Thank you so much!"
"I LOVED the assessment! It was really helpful to spend so much time reflecting, and I noticed several themes popping up over and over."
"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."
"I'm so grateful to have worked with my career coach. 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."
"Before WOKEN, I had just left a career I was in for almost ten years, and didn't know what to do next. I knew I needed a change, but didn't know where to start. I also knew that my resume and how I presented myself would need to change to reflect my new career path, and I definitely needed help with that. Now, I know what I want to do and have learned a variety of useful tools to help me find a job that's right for me. The primary benefits of the platform for me were figuring out what my next career goals were and how to present myself using my resume, cover letter, and Linkedin to be more attractive to those opportunities. Anyone who is unsure of the direction of their career or someone who is job hunting and needs help with resumes, interviews, and job applications should leverage WOKEN."
"Structured approach to research/learning, a proactive way to channel career uncertainty/anxiety, accountability."
"I had genuinely no idea what I was meant to do with my life, I kept jumping from major to major in college before dropping out completely and flailing even more trying to find a career. I know that I want to go back to college, and I know what I want to study! I’m much more certain in the direction I’m going in! It gave me a set of steps to take that really made me look within myself, to take the pieces of my personality and combine them to match it with the right career. This process is best for anyone who may be even slightly unsure about their path, or even someone who wants a new career path! This process is for absolutely anyone who wants to improve their professional life! I am eternally grateful to you and to this process for giving me what I never thought I would achieve, and this isn’t even the end of it! I know that once we continue beyond the career exploration phase, I’ll find the perfect role for me and I can’t wait!"
"Thanks again for the call today. I always get so much from our sessions."
"Whether you are feeling stuck, unfulfilled, or just starting out in your career, I would highly recommend working with my career coach. She will help you find a career path that you will love and is best suited for you. Her framework is both methodical and well structured, and she genuinely has your best interest. She is highly skilled in all aspects of career development and exploration. My career path is unique and has a lot of nuances, but she was able to guide me to significantly more clarity, as well as develop solutions to identify the best career path and course of action for me. I am very glad to have crossed paths with my career coach!"
"I was hoping for guidance on how to make the correct decision about my next career move. I was unhappy in my current position feeling unchallenged and unmotivated; I knew a change needed to be initiated. Prior to the discussion, I was not sure what direction I wanted to take. Through conversation, we were able to clarify my career goals and aspirations. One thing I learned through this process was: if you want a certain industry, why remain complacent? Go for it now. So, that is just what I did. With the motivation from our conversation, I applied to two opportunities that fell in the realm of what space I wanted to be in. As the following two weeks went by, I had multiple interviews for both positions. Two weeks later, I had offers from both positions. I was ecstatic. Per the guidance I received, I was able to leverage those offers against each other to maximize my salary, position and benefits. I am grateful I took the chance to do this because it allowed me to express my desires for career growth that I hadn't even fully shared with myself. Now I can say I am very excited to be moving into a new role which puts me on my path to success."
