Guiding you every step of the way ๐Ÿค

We practice a holistic coaching methodology that covers everything from high-level career planning to negotiating job offers, including:

Defining a Career Path and Goals. Figuring out how to pave your career path and define goals in the technology space. It's a deep rabbit hole, and we want to be there to help you ask the right questions to synthesise what's important to you career-wise.

Find the Right Company and Role. It can be tough finding the right tech company or role to suit your goals. We help craft a shortlist of role types and companies for you to target your job hunt efforts towards.

Crafting a Great LinkedIn, Resume and Cover Letter. Put your best self forward when applying online with our tailored LinkedIn, resume & cover letter advice.

Reaching Out To Companies. Once you're ready, we'll help you prepare your strategy for cold-messaging tech companies and leverage our network to tap into the power of referrals.

Smashing Your Interviews. Between behavioural interviews, product interviews, whiteboard interviews, and take home tasks, we've got your back at every step.

Choosing & Negotiating Offers. When you've landed your role, we'll guide you through tactics and recommendations around salary, as well as evaluating competing job offers.

Product Management Intern @ Quadrant (YC)

"Dan is amazing! He really guided me through the process. He helped me search for recruiters on LinkedIn, write cold emails, edit my resume, and eventually choose an internship with the most growth.

I really appreciate all that Dan has done for me and how at the end of the day we are friends. He is passionate, warm, and most importantly, driven. I only have good things to say about Dan!"


Associate Product Manager @ Zip Co

"I don't think I've met anyone more approachable and knowledgeable in the tech job application space than Dan. He has extensive experience and a deep understanding in a wide-range of job applications.

You could say that Dan made the interview process a fun and fulfilling experience. I would not have landed my recent job if it wasn't for the amazing coaching services Dan provided."
