Anne, Babylist

“Thank you WorkWell! After a little over a year of passively looking for work, not feeling "good enough" to pivot from the nonprofit sector, and at times succumbing to some self doubt-- I finally did it! I got my dream job at a very large and mission driven for-profit company! I finished the program in January 2021 and started seriously applying for work in March 2021, and then--only 2 months later-- it hugely paid off. Stay true to yourself, stay true to the process, network, put yourself out there, and it will all work out in the end.”
