Kelly’s advise on communication skills was very helpful; it allowed me to not only learn about my areas of opportunity in terms of career but also lay the ground to help me build stronger professional relationships.

Kelly was very helpful in identifying negotiation points and what my bare minimums are. I am much more confident in both negotiating the offer and in accepting it when we are done.

Kelly was awesome! Her advice helped me frame my salary negotiation perfectly, and she brought up key questions that I needed to seek clarification on. I learned a lot for future negotiations too!

Kelly was very responsive, friendly, and asked the right questions to understand my situation and what I needed from our coaching session. She gave me the keys to communicating my expectations in a clear and confident manner, along with practical next steps. I ended up receiving an offer with an additional 15K!

Kelly was great! I was surprised at how much she was able to help me in just 15 minutes. I'm not saying that I suddenly had a direct path to a job or anything, but she helped me realize where on the path I stood and how to continue moving forward.

I’m so thrilled to be working with Kelly. She gives the best advice so I feel confident going into interviews, with positions that she helped me find to apply for. I have a tendency to get in my own way, and Kelly helps me reorganize my thoughts so I can present my best self.

I had some trouble connecting through to the call/video chat option on the HC platform but it may have been from my side as I am currently abroad in Europe. Maybe something to look into Ketan? I also added a "+" in front of my phone number when I shared it so I don't know if that may have been the problem. I called Kelly directly and her kind demeanor and helpful tips helped me feel confident about transitioning into a product management role. I would be happy to work with her again as I make my career move into tech.
