WHO IS MY 'CAREERIST'?
Katharine Betteridge, Founder
Katharine's first resume was eclectic at best: 4 years of IT support & student leadership in college, along with a B.A. in Peace and Conflict Studies (yes, that is a major).
She jumped into her first job as a technical recruiter based on her love of technology, and desire to help people find jobs.
After 5 years spent reviewing 10,000+ resumes and hiring 100s of people on the client-side, is now 100% candidate focused, helping individuals identify and land their next great opportunity.
We are 100% candidate focused.We operate on a traditional career coaching model, not an agency or recruiting model and do not accept placement fees. That means that you, the candidate, pay a professional (though never exorbitant) rate for our time and expertise and in exchange we provide a service to the candidate that no recruiter can match: We put your needs 1st!
Furthermore, we are tech industry hiring specialists: we employ reformed technical recruiters, hiring managers, and other industry mentors who have anywhere from 2,000-10,000+ career hours navigating both sides of the interview table.
We offer an insider's knowledge, perspective, connections, and most of all - expert mentorship to help you avoid uncertainty and get pointed in the right direction to your next career step.
