About Us

After years of working in the staffing and recruiting industry and listening to countless testimonials from clients, Rebecca Martin came to a realization: most people don’t have a clue when it comes to their professional life. And why should they? The majority of us never took a class on how to find a job or write a resume or negotiate a higher salary. These things aren’t taught to us, and yet the most important part of our lives depends on them. Our careers give us meaning, identity, security, freedom–or at least they should. And that was the moment that Rebecca realized the need for dear jane.

Our methodology takes you from A to Z, from discovering what jobs you are best suited to, all the way to asking for the promotion you’ve worked so hard for. No matter where you are in your career, whether you are just starting out or you boast decades of experience, there is always room to grow. Through workshops, exercises, and one-on-one consultations, our advisors will help you unlock your potential and achieve your goals. Don’t wait any longer. You deserve to love what you do.
