Sonya received 2 offers on the same day for a position in Georgia after only submitting 14 applications. Her offer came with a 10K pay increase.👇🏾👇🏾

"With Jasmine’s group program I went from feeling defeated in my job search to landing a Senior Admin role. What helped was not being alone trying to figure out this new way of job searching. I now had a coach and an amazing community of women of color supporting me. With Jasmine I was also able to get a completely new and polished resume which was a major boost for me and my search took off. Now I’m starting a new job in my dream city feeling stress-free and confident in my path." ~Sonya K.


Cecilia became the first six-figure earner in her family when offered a job in fintech just one-week after applying.👇🏾👇🏾

“When I started working with Jasmine, I knew I needed to be more aligned with my career, my side hustle, and myself. After working together to rebuild my confidence and tackle burnout, I decided to leave my toxic workplace and start a job search. I landed a role one week after applying, increasing my income by 22%, and becoming a six-figure earner. Most importantly, while working together, I have learned how to stand up for myself at the workplace in ways that I would've never imagined in the past.” ~Cecilia H.

Despite initially feeling intimidated by job searching and battling impostor syndrome, being in this program helped me gain the confidence to pursue opportunities wholeheartedly. With Jasmine's guidance, I found my hidden potential and landed a role where I feel valued and seen for my true self. My journey highlights the program's ability to empower individuals to overcome self-doubt and achieve their career goals.

Jasmine was extremely helpful in providing direction and answering the questions that I had as it related to my career and personal growth. When I went through the resume and interview process, Jasmine was there every step of the way to coach and cheer me on. As a result, I was able to successfully pivot into a new industry and increase my salary by 46%.

Cynthia M.

Working with Jasmine is a life-affirming, confidence-building experience. She gently pushed me to self-assess thoroughly and honestly, to recognize my patterns that were professional roadblocks. She helped me distill my experiences into clear self-development opportunities consistently. What I walked away with was confidence - to stand in my convictions all the time; validation - that I bring something unique and worthy to the table, and a warm feeling that I have magic too, and still. Everyone needs their Jasmine!
