Product Manager at
I had a great experience with the BIF Individual Program! I found both sessions with Juan very helpful in getting my story together, reviewing my resume and preparing my marketing material. I really liked that both sessions are customizable depending on the needs, in my case I already had experience in the industry, so the focus was different than from someone just breaking in. Juan has a lot of experience as a candidate and as a recruiter, and that showed up when I received a ton of detailed and insightful feedback. He gave me a lot of practical tips that I was able to implement right after the first session. I am very pleased with the service. It exceeded my expectations; I definitely recommend it!
