About Me

Oh, hello! I'm Laura and I've connected thousands of people to their careers in the apparel industry. Through my corporate career I have worked for multiple global industry leading companies. I'm currently the Talent Acquisition Manager for REVOLVE, FORWARD, and Alliance Apparel. My true passions are helping people navigate their career path, connecting with people, and creating lasting professional partnerships. What excites me the most is watching people I have advised excel in their careers. I've worked with people at all stages of their careers and I'm beyond excited to join the Career Contessa as a Mentor! Here are just a few ways that I can help YOU: - Providing insight to the job market - Interview preparation and coaching - Determine salary requirements and assisting with total compensation negotiation - Resume and cover letter revisions to help stand out from the crowd - Linked-In profile optimization, getting seen by the right people - Public speaking and group presentation skills I have been a featured speaker at UCLA, UCI, Loyola Marymount University and an MBA interview coach at CSU Fullerton. I have also been featured on Livestrong.com as an interviewing expert. Working in the apparel industry is unique and takes some help to navigate. I have been fortunate to have female friends/mentors that I have been able to bounce ideas off of, share success and disappointment with, and be a consent source of support and inspiration. It's an exciting time for women in the workforce, and working together to get us on an equal playing field is a team effort. So let's connect and keep moving up!

A negative mind will never give you a positive life.

Reviews

"Meeting with Laura via FaceTime was a great personal way to get valuable feedback on my resume and gain answers to burning questions I would not typically ask in normal conversation. The honesty and direction were appreciated and will be put to good use. I am so happy knowing I now have a road map and resources to take the next steps!"
