Hello, I am Aneri Desai, your Career Bestie!

I was an underdog in my teenage and early twenties. I had no idea what I wanted to be. I let others navigate my life and career. The only thing I knew was that I wanted to be financially independent. I saw all women in my family working and going places so I knew that’s what I wanted too.

After completing my Masters in Computer Science from India, I realized that I didn’t enjoy programming so I decided to apply for an MBA in the United States. In 2010, I landed in the United States with big dreams and nothing to my name.

In 2011, an arranged marriage took a drastic turn and I ended up at Chicago airport with my whole life packed in two suitcases, not knowing where to go and what to do. That was the day when I decided that I would do everything in my power so other women never feel dependent like I did.

I had to rebuild my life from ZERO. Fought tooth and nail to maintain my student visa status, slept on people’s couch, survived on borrowed money and finally graduated. There began my glorious journey to where I am today…

I just turned down an opportunity to become a Chief of Staff, 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!

Let me take you to my wonderful independent immigrant journey

  • The financial investment I made by enrolling in Aneri’s coaching program is nothing in compare to the value she provides.

    Working with Aneri was such a blessing. She helped me find the biggest breakthrough of my career. I had career gaps and my resume did not do justice to my true potential before I joined Aneri’s 1:1 career coaching program. Aneri helped me built my professional brand and a compelling career story and mapped out a step by step job search plan. She taught me to own my story and share it with confidence. For four years I held myself back but now I believe that I can walk into any interview being my authentic self. She not only showed me how to build professional relationships but also connected me to industry leaders for coffee chats. As a result, I am walking away with a job assignment that will help me to resume my career after a long gap. I just told my friend that the financial investment I made by enrolling in Aneri’s coaching program is nothing in compare to the value she provides. It is X 1000 more.

  • With Aneri’s support I was able to crack my first interview and got an offer.

    I was nervous about navigating my job search as an international student. Due to pandemic most of my masters program was online and I felt like I was not ready to face the interview. Aneri helped me find role clarity and showed me elements from my past work experience that I could highlight. That boosted my confidence a lot. The career coaching program got me my first internship in the United States. With Aneri’s support I was able to crack my first interview and got an offer. As Aneri always says, We are just getting started.

  • This all seemed unreal until I got in touch with Aneri.

    Aneri turned around my resume. I couldn’t believe that I had so much to offer. The way she presented my experience and elevated my overall professional brand is beyond my imagination. I learned how to build long-term relations over quick referral or LinkedIn add. Using her networking strategy I was able to build a strong connection with a senior officer in my dream company. This all seemed unreal until I got in touch with Aneri. Thank you for being my coach, Aneri.

  • Landed my first job that to in VERY FIRST company I interviewed with.

    Before I started working with Aneri, my biggest fear was to put myself out there and trusting myself and my capabilities. Meeting Aneri changed everything, she helped me to overcome my own fears and addressed the problem at its root. She motivated me to do my best, always stood by my side every step of the way. She changed my mindset of applying to hundreds of jobs as an international student. I learned job search and networking strategies that helped me stand out. All of this lead me to landing my first job that to in VERY FIRST company I interviewed with. I’m so thankful and glad that I took that leap of faith and trusted her ❤️

  • She is extremely patient and provides very effective feedback and tips.

    Having Aneri as my career coach has been tremendously invaluable for me. Prior to starting my career coaching sessions, I was frustrated with myself and lacked clarity of what I truly wanted to pursue in my career (as I am an individual with varying interests). Working throughout the sessions with her helped me gain better clarity of my purpose and what I wanted to pursue in my career.
    Her thought-provoking questions also helped me get a deeper understanding of what I absolutely did not want to pursue.
    Moreover, throughout my job application process, Aneri provided extremely helpful tips and guidance on how to answer questions, how to expand my network, make connections as well as negotiate. Being a first-generation South Asian I did not feel empowered to negotiate my salary, ever. But Aneri provided me with the confidence and the resources to be able to that effectively. In a sense, along with coaching, she helped me build my self-confidence which I found was lacking prior to my sessions with her. She is extremely patient and provides very effective feedback and tips. My experience with her has been so amazing that I have gone ahead and recommended my sister to use Aneri’s career coaching services.
    Thank you so much for everything you have done for me Aneri!!!

  • Shechanged my life forever. She is the sister I never had.

    For FIVE years I applied for jobs with no luck. I got more than 500 rejections that affected my confidence. I finally decided to seek help. I was Aneri’s silent follower for a while and I am glad I finally took action. In the clarity call, Aneri helped me to see skill set gaps in my profile. Instead of job search, we shifted our focus to enrolling in MS in Software Engineering program to bridge those major skill set gaps. She not only guided me at every step during the application process but also helped me get a scholarship. I feel confident and I now have a clear job search plan. She changed my life forever. She is the sister I never had.

  • I am definitely blessed with the best mentor

    I would not have been this confident and have come this far if it wouldn’t have been for Aneri. Ever since I spoke to her for the first time, it felt like, “Yes, there is finally someone out there who understands my struggle and frustrations.” Since then, I’ve been lucky enough to have her by my side like a mentor, a friend, a coach who has helped me navigate not just job-related stuff, but has helped me through academics, personal dilemmas. My master’s journey wouldn’t have been so meaningful if I didn’t have Aneri’s never-ending support. I am definitely blessed with the best mentor and glad to have her with me through it all.

  • She has a Midas touch

    I am so thankful that I chose Aneri to coach me for launching my career in the USA. She has a Midas touch and I couldn’t be happier that I got a job within 3 weeks of her career coaching.

  • Her vision and determination as a mentor is impeccable! worker

    Reaching out to Aneri was the best blessing I could give myself. Through the meticulously curated OPT Ninja training, I got the motivation and confidence to achieve my goals. Each week gave me more clarity and self-belief of being capable as an international student. I love how Aneri makes you focus on working towards your dream life rather than just a dream job. Her vision and determination as a mentor is impeccable!

  • She has always got your back!

    I spoke to Aneri for the first time in 2020 and have been in touch with this amazing soul ever since. She has held my hand through the toughest few months of this year, instilling confidence in me and always guiding me with her advice, tips, and industry knowledge. From revamping resume to LinkedIn tips and tricks, to Interview hacks and preparation she is an expert in all of it.

    I would 100% recommend her to anyone who is looking to navigate the job market or planning to pursue higher education in the USA. She has always got your back. I cannot thank you enough Aneri and I am so happy I found you 🙂

  • You can trust her blindly!

    I moved to the US in February 2020 (just before the Covid-19 started hitting our lives). I was not aware of the culture, the job market, how to search for jobs. I didn’t even know – how the resumes are structured. After a prolonged struggle, fortunately, I met Aneri.

    Aneri is so much more than a coach. She is that big sister whom you can talk to anytime and share your fear/anxiety/issues. She helped me in overcoming my limiting beliefs and motivated me to have a positive outlook towards life which eventually helped in my job search as well. Her job search strategies, resume uplift pointers were simply awesome. If you’re sailing in the same boat as I was, reach out to Aneri and trust her blindly. She has got your back!

    I wish her all the very best for her new venture and sending positive vibes her way!

  • She is fantabulous.

    I would describe Aneri’s role in my life as not only a Career coach but my Mentor. She is such a down-to-earth person. I am lucky enough to have her as my career coach. She played a huge role in every step of my achievements when I was confused about selecting my courses and career path in the United States as an international student. A simple message on Facebook made me connect with her. She cleared all my doubts regarding navigating life in the United States and preparing for jobs. I was then confident enough to step into the country even though I had zero knowledge about this new place. I tried for Graduate assistantship roles but no luck. Again, Aneri unleashed my potential and made me try again. She coached me on how to find advocates who can refer me, how to prepare for interviews, and provided great insight into how corporate America works.

  • She is a miracle worker

    Before I met Aneri, I had applied for about 100 jobs on and off and received no response. But after a week of her coaching, I had a refined resume, updated LinkedIn profile, and role clarity. Her advice of focusing on the quality of the application over quantity took me a long way. I had 3 interviews in week 2 of our coaching program. She is a miracle worker who knows the ins and outs of the job market and hiring process. At the end of my 12-week coaching program, I had multiple offers to choose from. I highly recommend working with Aneri.
