Before working with Fareen, the major challenge in my remote job search was not about what needed to be done but necessarily how it needed to be done. That’s where Fareen’s input was the most valuable! One of the topics we worked on extensively was LinkedIn, with my new profile, I’ve received more interest from my network, and have a drastic increase in my engagement levels. Fareen as a coach has been awesome, starting with asking the right questions, check-ins on a regular basis, a well designed job search program – she brings in lot of experience and the right expertise.

There was a lot of great advice given by Fareen but the three that stood out to me were - It is ok to look a bit rehearsed for your introductory answer, as there would be many questions that one may not be prepared for making. Thus, making it a perfect mix of "known knowns and unknown knowns". One of the questions I often struggle with is “What is your weakness” and I learned that it’s better to underline a skill along with your improvement plan and lastly that LinkedIn is not only a job platform but a great place to network with like-minded professionals and industry leaders. The sessions have been so concise that I felt heard and knowledgeable.
