    How Women Can Elevate their Career w/Maricella Herrera

    How Women Can Elevate their Career w/Maricella Herrera

    My wife, who went to a better school, had better GPA, and overall on paper was a better candidate, struggled to get a job while I had 6-7 job offers after graduation.

    She’s smarter, she's harder working and essentially a better hire than I am, but I ultimately had better offers because of the strategies I was implementing. And I notice this happens most of the time with my female clients.

    To learn how to overcome this, I invited Maricella Herrera, CEO of Ellevate Network, on our show to discuss women's career development. We talked about becoming noticeable, building your network and finding the right companies.

    If you're one of the millions of women who work really hard, but you feel like you're overlooking opportunities, listen to this episode now and learn to master the job search.

    Ep.265 "Lessons every International Student should know w/Sammy Hejazi"

    The hardest thing you will ever do?

    As an international student, I’d say most likely getting a job after graduating, especially if you’re under pressure with your OPT.

    The fear of losing the huge investment of studying abroad and not getting a job after graduating is overwhelming.

    To help all of you out there, we’re bringing back an episode where we invited Sammy Hejazi, an Associate Director at Wayfair and an International Student Advocate.

    Sammy was an international student himself and today he shares his personal journey and advice that he wish he had known when he was looking for a job. We delved into the answers for all these questions:


    Which mindset should you have?
    How important is your GPA?
    How should you be spending your time?
    Why are you not hearing back from your applications?
    How do you build a new support network?

    For months now, we’ve heard talk about a possible recession. As time passes, possibilities increase, uncertainty raises, and so does panic, especially as a recent-grad or soon to be college graduate.

    Even so, six months ago I recorded this episode with my friend Adam Broda, HM at Amazon and career coach, and we talked about what you need to do to prepare yourself for today’s job market, the strategies you should be following and where you should be looking.

    I’ve brought back this episode now so you can prepare yourself and make your career and job search recession-proof.

    Ep.262 "How to own your career during changing timess"

    Entering a job market after a pandemic and during a potential recession is scary.

    And as a recent grad, getting a job is just the start of your concerns.

    What comes after that, the decisions you take, the chances you get and the challenges you overcome set the foundation of your career and will determine your long-term professional journey.

    Sounds stressing, right?

    That’s why I invited Karen Hebert-Maccaro, GM at Education Morning Brew, an expert in modern professional development and networking.

    She’s had experience from all the possible viewpoints on the matter, as talent management executive, chief learning officer, chief content officer, executive coach, business school professor and dean as well as a management consultant.

    We delved into everything you need to know as a recent grad entering the workforce during uncertain and new times like these, including:


    Pros and cons of remote work.
    Navigating the job market during a recession.
    Building a professional narrative.
    Work-Life balance.

    Ep.261 "How the recruitment process works"

    As a job seeker, sometimes you don’t know what is going on behind the curtain.

    Who finds you as a candidate, how they review your application, why they’re interviewing you, why you might get rejected…

    Not knowing these things puts you in disadvantage, and it’s key to understand the process to succeed at it.

    To talk about all of this, I invited today Marie Benigno Ablaza (also known as the Fairy Job Mother), who is currently a Talent Recruiter at Netflix Game Studio, so you can learn everything you need to know once you start planning to apply to any job position, including:


    Differences in Recruiting Roles: Sourcers, Recruiters, and Coordinators
    The relationship and dynamics between the Hiring Manager and the Recruiter.
    How to make the interviewing process easier and smoother.
