This course was inspired by my many years of trying to make sense of the working world and answer the following questions:
This resume is a culmination of 10 years of trying and failing myself, but also helping others land jobs at The White House, McKinsey & Company and Deutsche Bank and get accepted to MIT Sloan and other leading schools.
You should take this class if you are serious about your career and want to re-think everything you ever know about the working world.
I’ve always been borderline obsessed with trying to figure out how to learn, develop valuable skills, and market myself in my own career. At the same time, I've always been equally as motivated to help others achieve success. From aggressively pushing my college roommate to apply to a job at GE (which he got!) to helping my mother write "the best cover letter we have seen," I loved seeing others accomplish their goals.
I started small, helping people find jobs, enhance their resumes and cover letters and prepare for interviews. As I got better and I started to achieve success in my own career, more people started reaching out to me. I noticed pretty quickly that I was pretty damn good at seeing other people's potential (even more clearly than my own), helping them identify what they were good at and helping them accelerate towards their goals.
I gained a lot of confidence as my "clients" delivered on some big goals. From one person gaining acceptance into a top 5 business school to another making the transition from 5th grade math teacher to healthcare research analyst at a leading global strategy consulting firm, I was finding myself more inspired and excited than the people I was helping.
This course is a product of that passion and I hope you enjoy it.
