Are you tired of submitting resume after resume to tech companies and hearing nothing but crickets?

We've been there.

We come from non-traditional background (the automotive industry + teaching kindergarten) and struggled to break into tech for years, too.

But we finally cracked the code.

And since then, we've:

  • Worked at companies like Apple, Samsung, Dell, and LinkedIn - as well as several VC-backed startups
  • Screened thousands of resumes in hiring people for our teams

So we know exactly what works - and what doesn't

Come along with us as we show you how tech recruiters actually read resumes. And how to craft a resume that WILL get you an interview at even the hottest tech companies.

Tech startup executive, advisor, and career mentor

I've been mentoring professionals on career management in tech companies for over 10 years. I'm currently a Career Advisor for MBA students at Berkeley's Haas School of Business where I provide students & alumni with 1-1 advising on their career search in the technology & startup fields.

I'm actively involved in the Silicon Valley startup world, as a mentor at the 500 Startups Accelerator and advisor to several startups and Venture Capital funds. I was the first business hire at Drippler (Series-A funded startup) where I launched the US office and global sales organization. Previously, I launched the Alienware PC Gaming product line globally, pioneered viral marketing at Best Buy, co-founded WalkAbout Wireless, and designed & built cars at Ford.
