“With every coaching session I do, every webinar I teach, I try to bring something new. Not just teach the big idea that thrills but also frameworks and key actionable takeaways so that participants, especially students, can learn “how to fish for themselves” in their career journey."

Hira Fernando
Founder, Careerly

"Hira and her team have both strong coaching skills and phenomenal industry expertise. From an employer perspective, it's hard to see how candidates could be adequately prepared to get through our recruiting process - whether in IBD, brokerage, or Asset Management - without this combination." 

Michael Salsbury, former Head of EMEA Merrill Lynch International.
