What others say about me (all testimonials can be found here):
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Chris Noring (Senior Cloud Advocate at Microsoft)
Ela has been an important advisor in helping to develop 3 learning modules on getting a career in tech (“Start in tech as an intern”).
Ela’s contributions have ensured the messaging is sound and correctly reflects the process and how to not only prepare for interviews but also how to network and make the most of an intern position.
The resulting learning path of modules is used frequently in many programs directed at students and has helped thousands to get a career in tech.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Joana Parreira (Software Engineer at Microsoft)
I am grateful to Ela and her blog posts. I had a job interview scheduled with Microsoft and found her blog when I was searching for tips.
Her posts helped me better prepare and gave me the confidence to go through the interviews. I even found some good ideas on how to interview them back and get a good understanding of what is the company’s culture like.
I am happy to say that I am now working at Microsoft.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Marta Jezierska (Engineering Manager at Microsoft)
I had the great pleasure of benefitting from Ela’s 1:1 Consultation offer. Not only was she very responsive, energetic, and professional but most importantly she provided me with top-notch tips on how to boost my CV and expose the invisible.
Now with this new resume, my candidate profile looks very attractive from a technological and business perspective. As well I feel much more confident about finding a new opportunity. Now it is just a matter of time.
I can strongly recommend Ela’s 1:1 Consultation offer absolutely to everyone and will certainly revert to it in the future.
P.S. It was a matter of time before I got a dream job, at Microsoft!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Aykut Alparslan Koc
I was really pleased with the experience with Ela. I booked the 1:1 Consultation for a CV review and to get a second opinion about my career plans.
She provided insight into how my CV would look from a recruiter's perspective and also shared some tips about the job application process.
She came to the meeting prepared and used the time effectively to address all my questions.
Now I am more confident about my resume and my next steps are clearer. I highly recommend her as she is really professional and honest in her feedback.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Berenika Kotelko
I took part in a 1:1 consultation with Ela around the beginning of my Software Engineering career without a Computer Science degree, and I found the session extremely useful.
Ela was personable and down-to-earth, which quickly put me at ease, and very knowledgeable about the industry and recruitment into it. She gave some very useful tips and provided me with great resources.
I approached Ela with possibly a different situation than most others. I have worked in tech for the best part of 10 years, and always assumed I was not good enough to be a software engineer.
Ela took the time to understand my situation and what I was hoping to achieve. Her own first-hand experience combined with her history in recruitment was a great help in helping me understand my options and she was able to provide very detailed insights into how I should approach my goal.
During my time with Ela, she helped me create an action plan including detailed steps I need to consider when moving toward my goal. In the past few weeks since speaking with Ela, I truly feel like I have significantly more confidence and made more progress than I managed to achieve in the several years before.
