About Amanda

"my passion is helping people find the right job, sooner."

If working with job seekers and recruiters for the past 10+ years taught me anything, it’s that finding the job that’s right for you is tough. And landing it? Even tougher. That’s why I love speaking at conferences, coaching clients, and holding workshops on all things related to the job search and career advancement. I want to share my knowledge to help others identify their dream job, develop their personal brand and ace their interviews.
These aren’t skills you’re born with, so I’m especially interesting in helping college students and recent graduates understand and master the job-search process. My dream is to reform higher education so every student’s curriculum includes career exploration and job-search strategy.
