Kelly is great. She immediately grokked my oddball career situation and gave me an excellent structure for putting a plan in place. I'm starting!

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.
