Why Our Clients Love Us
"Amazing resource for anyone who is in-between roles, looking to pivot industries, and looking for support and direction. The curriculum allows you to really take a step back and look at what your real needs and goals are for your ideal role + next career steps, and provides tangible exercises (even templates) on how to navigate the job search, interview, and negotiate compensation. I find the online community the most helpful part of the service, being able to access 7+ coaches (most tech recruiting background) and members 24/7 via Slack channels was incredibly important as a sounding board for any immediate questions I had or advice needed. Ultimately, the community helped me prep for strategic interviews and negotiate a competitive comp package. Highly recommend to those impacted by layoffs during this pandemic needing a community of support, and the push needed to invest in your job search!"
Riley, Field Marketing Manager at Tipalti
Before WorkWell, I didn’t know that a value-based job search was advisable or attainable. Across my career, I’ve always just accepted jobs that fell in my lap, making compromises around compensation, company values, and work/life balance. WorkWell’s Accelerator encouraged me to look for jobs that met all three criteria, with the premise that these are key elements of true career satisfaction. WorkWell helped me feel more empowered in my job search, more grounded in my own values, and more determined to find an opportunity that matched the new bar I’d set. I had a brand new confidence to go after dream roles –– even once boldly flying across the country to meet a CEO face to face after being initially declined for a role.
I’ve gotten back my investment from the course by landing a role at a value-aligned, top tier tech company and ultimately increasing my income by 50% over the past year. And did I mention that I love my job too?
Lucy & Whitney are patient, insightful, and attentive listeners. They share the goods that get results if you are committed to doing the work. I’ve referred to our class materials even a year after leaving the program, and the foundation for job searching that WorkWell set will be my formula for any job search moving forward.

WorkWell was absolutely a game-changer for my job search. The curriculum was incredibly helpful in navigating the process of determining my target role and what type of skills and values I wanted to use in my next role, preparing my resume, and using LinkedIn for networking. The WorkWell COMMUNITY though is where it's at!! I honestly don't think I would be where I'm at without the coaches support, and the rest of the WW family. Hearing success stories, getting feedback and encouragement, and being reminded "you are a whole human who happens to be job searching" got me back on track so many times. Being able to join forces with other members to work on resumes, mock interview, send outreach messages, and just inspire and encourage one another was truly what led to my success (and kept me sane along the way!!) I was hesitant to join just because of the cost and the fact that I was unemployed, but I would do it again IN A HEARTBEAT. Don't try to job search alone. It's stressful and time-consuming and exhausting and sometimes just really annoying. YOU NEED SOME PEOPLE, and WorkWell has the best ones. :)
Jordan, Recruiting Coordinator at Handshake
As a professional with 15+ years of experience, I honestly thought I knew a thing or two about applying for jobs and interviewing. Boy was I wrong! From WorkWell, I learned how to attack the toughest job market in modern history (ie: Pandemic!) with confidence and laser-like precision. The curriculum is action-based, and I was doing uncomfortable things (ahem, networking!) with ease in 2-3 weeks. I entered small group interview practice right away which dramatically amplified my use of metrics and storytelling in my interviews. The interview prep was a game-changer for me. My first interview requests came within 8 weeks of starting the curriculum and the interview prep was so robust that I made it to the final rounds of my first 2 interviews. I landed an offer from one of these companies, negotiating a 30% increase in paid time off. This rockstar group of skill-builders is propelling and pivoting careers and I fully believe I landed a new role many months faster than I would have without it.
Stephanie, Strategic Market Insights Manager at Danaher (Fortune 160 firm)
Joining WorkWell was one of the best decisions I've made for my career. The knowledgeable support of the coaches combined with the amazing community of peers makes it a unique learning experience that pays off. I was able to break into a new industry in tech and also find a role and company that aligns with my values and career goals. I gained the skills to successfully negotiate a higher offer and as a result, increased my salary from my previous position by 20%.
Anne, People Operations Coordinator at Babylist
I’m a non-traditional software engineer who made a career pivot from barista to developer. After a couple of years of self-learning + completing a web development Bootcamp, I felt I was ready to start applying to tech roles but was a bit overwhelmed by where to start. I connected with WorkWell at one of their job search bootcamps and learned so much about value-based job searching, resume writing, interview prep + salary negotiation. With these new skills, insights, and WorkWell’s coaching, I was able to secure a software engineering apprenticeship with Adobe after a few months of job searching and interviewing. More recently, when I secured a computer scientist role at Adobe, I was able to negotiate a 10% increase on the offer with WorkWell’s support. All this to say that WorkWell has been a key partner in helping demystify + navigate the process of job searching in tech. Not only have I learned so much from their coaching, expertise + curriculum, I have also felt more empowered in the process. Their coaches are incredibly knowledgeable, genuinely care about seeing their clients thrive, and so fun to work with!! WorkWell helped me level up professionally, beyond the job search, and I look forward to working with them in the future. If you are making a career pivot into tech, I can’t recommend working with WorkWell enough!!
Beni, Computer Scientist at Adobe
WorkWell helped me land two offers even amidst everything going on in the job market with Covid-19. Lucy, Whitney, and their team of coaches exude nothing but care, expertise, love, and it's obvious that they truly care about their clients and the impact that they have on other's lives. I couldn't have done it without them.
Josh, Product Marketing Manager at ServiceTitan
I learned how to rewrite my resume and how to network. I hated networking. I can do it for my personal life connecting my friends and sharing resources, but I didn't know how to transfer those skills into my professional life. I really needed help on how to approach networking without getting nervous and coming off as if I were fishing for a job. I did not know how to make it feel personable and sincere. The program helped me to change my perspective about networking completely. It taught me how to approach people, encouraged me to actively seek people, and normalized the act of networking.
Gina, User Experience Research Professional
I don’t hesitate to recommend WorkWell. The WorkWell coaches are amazing coaches that deliver above and beyond. I’ve spoken to a few other coaches in the past and they don’t come close to the level of positivity, support, belief, and expertise that WorkWell offers. I took part in their intensive Accelerator which covers everything from LinkedIn networking and resume development to interview storytelling and salary negotiation - even if you think you know your stuff pretty well they can take it so much further. The Accelerator has essentially paid for itself in the amazing job I’ve landed and increased salary I negotiated. As well as knowing their stuff in the search space they are beyond supportive which hasn’t stopped since completing the Accelerator. They’re always there for questions and to remind you of the unique value you offer when you need a boost! If you’re thinking of signing up with WorkWell do it.
Kimberly, Strategic Insight and Research for QuickBooks at Intuit
WorkWell provided me with tools and support to make me feel confident and prepared going into interviews. They also equipped me with the tools to be a smart and tactful applicant, rather than just sending out applications and hoping for the best. I’ll be referring back to what I learned through WorkWell in every job transition from here on out!
Valerie, Customer Success Manager at CreatorIQ
Having a supportive community made all the difference in staying motivated in my job search. The trainings were extremely helpful too! Job searching has changed so much in just the last few years, and my strategies that worked before were getting me nowhere. With Workwell's help, I upped my game and landed a perfect job.
