Hello, I am Aneri Desai
A career coach for immigrant women, former corporate Ninja, first generation immigrant, and a mom who believes that women deserve to have it all. It has been a decade long roller coaster ride from being an international student from India to living my American dream.
After graduating with an MS in Information Technology and MBA in Information Systems, I had a hard time navigating my job search being an international student needing sponsorship. I initially followed basic job search advice available around me with disappointing outcomes. After over 250 rejections, I finally cracked the code of a successful job search which led me to working with Fortune 500 companies with 5 promotions in 8 years.
Over the years, hundreds of people reached out to me for referral, recommendations, networking calls , introductions and one thing I noticed was most immigrant women did not know how to own their career gap, how to take credit for their work, how to own their story and how to stand out in the hiring process.
When I got my most awaited promotion, , I looked around and noticed that there weren’t many women who looked like me in that room.
So, I turned down a promotion opportunity and left corporate America to launch my career coaching company. Why? There is no fun in climbing the ladder all alone. I want to help immigrant women dream big, crush their goals and go places just like how I did.
