Testimonials | InYour20s.com by Bessy Tam



Data Analyst at Real Estate Firm turned Data Engineer at Facebook/Netflix

"Before working with Bessy, my main challenge was looking for a structure to answer the behavioral questions or to organize my stories in a way that can fit any scenario.

I guess at that time, I was looking for someone to help with preparing my preparing my behaviorial interviews and help me comb through my answers and bring out my best stories. I reached out to a few people and Bessy the person that has the most personable approach which I think really helps. She also works in a tech company so she has a lot more insight on the interviews so that's why I chose to work with Bessy.

she really took the time to get to know my background and stories and my goals. This is unlike other people I've talked to, they just provide the very generic solution for your problem.

 I ended up getting an offer for one of the companies and getting 2x in my overall pay. I was finally able to work in a company I like, a FAANG company , and one I've been dreaming of working at for so many years!


Operations Coordinator Resume Revamp for Recruiting Coordinator

"When you're in your 20's, it's really easy to go through the motions when it comes to your work-life.

Until I met Bessy, I hadn't taken the time to strategically think about what I want in my career, nor had I taken the time to reflect on previous jobs/internships. If you asked me what I liked/disliked about my first internship, you would have stumped me - I knew I loved it, but why? Was it because I had a sense of ownership, freedom to explore different areas of the work, or something else? Bessy's criteria for career success helped me suss my life out.

Personally, I started out with the newsletter course, had a free one-hour consultation, and then took time to think about signing up for her resume revamp package. While having an updated resume has been immensely helpful (!) - I have gained clarity regarding my strengths and how I want to leverage them in my future career - the true value of Bessy's time is her genuine curiosity in getting to know you better as a person and dedication to helping you set & meet your goals. She'll help keep you accountable.

Working with Bessy was worth every penny - you don't meet people who are in your corner and eager to share everything they know with you very often. She's effortlessly friendly,  has a great sense of humor, AND is intimidating in the best way possible - she truly knows what she's doing, and will call you out when needed, with a whole lot of love.

I lovingly refer to her as my career coach, but most of the time, I think of her as my career whisperer (how cheesy). I'd 100% recommend working with Bessy, you won't regret it." — Candace

“Bessy’s training in interview skills is extremely well-planned and detailed. I am a lot clearer about my own strengths and weaknesses by following her advice when we prepared for my interview step by step. Also, she is an expert in tech company’s hiring requirements, she gives a lot of insight that an outsider couldn’t tell. Personality wise, she is caring and very encouraging - making me feel super confident after the whole preparation process.

With her help I got interviews for Facebook and Alibaba interviews In 2 weeks, final rounds at Google, and got to speak to a director at Emarsys, another global tech company. I wouldn’t be able to do this without her!

Associate Market Manager to Tech Startup then Salesforce


"It was an absolute pleasure to work with Bessy. Bessy is extremely knowledgeable in her craft and is an expert in helping clients navigate all of the intricacies and obstacles associated with the job search. Prior to working with Bessy, I found the job search process incredibly daunting. I had casually sent out close to a hundred resumes with little to no response. Bessy guided me in identifying exactly what was important to me in my next role, helped me shape my resume to become much more focused and robust and encouraged me to tap into by network and learn about the careers and responsibilities of those around me. With Bessy’s expert guidance, I received responses on my updated resumes almost immediately and was able to secure job offers with every company I interviewed with. I have recently started a new position in ad tech. This company is the #2 revenue generating exchange partner after Google and I am really excited to be in such a fast growing startup. I absolutely love it and I am so grateful to Bessy for helping get me here."

Bessy has support my career growth by helping me stay focused on answering the right questions. I have a tendency to think about the long term future but not the short term changes I can consider making. With her help, I was able to stay grounded and transform my career one step at a time.
