Matt P.

Attorney

Matt, a lawyer and father of two, landed a fully-remote job with work-life balance

I felt like I was lost in the wilderness and felt like I was a failure. I felt stressed and distracted on a daily basis thinking about the past and where it went wrong. I got stuck in the rut of applying online and wasting time. I was stuck working a job that was forcing me to commute to work and be in an office setting for 10 hours per day. My wife has a demanding career as a doctor, and it was tough to balance my rigid schedule with my wife’s schedule as we raise 2 young girls. I wanted more flexibility in my job so that I could easily run to a doctor’s appointment or find time to exercise during the day. I wanted a fully remote job that was still exciting to me. Priscilla helped me realize that I am marketable and that I accomplished some impressive things over the course of my career. She taught me to use my past experiences as something positive and not negative like I would do in the past. She helped me become more agnostic about networking and take the emotion out of it so I could use my time efficiently. By the end of our time together, I landed a fully remote job doing work that is better aligned to my strengths. This is a game-changer for my family and I can’t wait to get started. I have a better understanding my career non-negotiables and renewed confidence in my ability to tell my story of who I am.
