Hey y’all--I am so excited to be a HireClub coach and help you with your career goals!

I am an AfroColombian Recruiting Professional who emigrated to the US at age 9 and found myself in the Tech industry by complete accident. Having successfully navigated Tech at different organizations, I want to help others be more intentional about their journey to their dream career.

I’ve worked in recruiting at Facebook, Twitter, Andreessen Horowitz and Asana with a focus on early career recruitment and diversity programs. I’ve coached 1000+ individuals, hosted over 100+ Tech events, hired 75 new techies to the industry, and want to help you in your journey!

During my coaching calls, I practice radical candor to help you become aware of the issues we need to work through in order for you to tell your story as boldly as possible and dare to achieve the goals you've always wanted!

Catalina was great, for my first chat with her she was able to sum up my needs quickly and offer very insightful help on tweaking my resume to be more focused for a new direction I’m taking.

Signed up for a mock interview with Catalina - she was great. She's a great coach and the follow ups she provided are excellent as well

Great conversation. With her honestly (which is exactly how I am) I'm able to connect to her to know that she wants the best for you. Thank you for being so encouraging and real, Catalina. I immediately signed up for the Ultimate Plan because I am more fired up than I was before about doing this job application / career search process. Thank you Catalina!

She is a very energetic person and transmitted that energy while in the first session. She is a very focused person and provided specific feedback and actions to take in detail from day 1. I really like it.
