About Me

I've spent my career working in recruiting and Human Resources at super competitive companies (think Tory Burch & JPMorgan) and saw first hand what it takes to stand out from the crowd. This inspired me to launch my job search consulting business, The Prepary, three years ago and since then, I've supported hundreds of clients in achieving their career and job search goals. Over the course of my 8 years at Tory Burch and JPMorgan, I screened, interviewed, and hired people at all levels, from interns to recent grads to experienced professionals. I've also hired for all kinds of roles in the creative and business words (from buying and merchandising, to marketing and PR, to finance, legal, and HR). The fashion industry is a particular area of expertise, but I love (and am super comfortable) working with people across so many different industries. I consider myself more of a job search consultant than a "coach" - you'll always walk away from our sessions with tactical advice that will move your job search forward, whether it's resume feedback, networking tactics, or interview strategies. In addition to my work with clients, I also lead workshops, teach a career development course at LIM College in NYC, and have had my advice featured in Forbes, Fast Company, The Muse, Business Insider, and Huffington Post. The Prepary was also named by Forbes as one of the Top 100 Websites For Your Career. It’s been a fun ride! I love giving advice on all aspects of the job search and being able to share what recruiters and hiring managers are *really* looking for when it comes to resumes, cover letters, networking, interview answers, and so much more. Questions? Just reach out!

When you hit a wall, just kick it in.

Reviews

"Jaime was a wonderful resource for insights on how hiring works from the other side! We accomplished a lot in an hour, and she immediately provided supplementary materials that I can use moving forward. She provided feedback on my resume and website, shared her screen to show me a great tool on Linkedin, did a quick spruce up of my resume and shed some insights on how to get noticed by recruiters. You'll definitely be impressed with how she can help you refresh the way you present yourself as a candidate! "

"Jaime was great and extremely well organized. She shared her screen with me and walked me through my resume and LinkedIn profile. She created a concise list of action items and she corrected my resume within the first 15 minutes of our call. Additionally, she provided several templates and videos from her library to help me prepare for my upcoming interviews."
