Hey dream chaser! I'm Katrina Honer
My personal ethos is to democratize access to mentorship and education.
I'm a Career Contessa career coach, full-time Employer Brand & Recruitment Marketer at Twilio, and a beauty entrepreneur. In short, I'm well versed in networking my way to dream opportunities.

After working five years as a project manager in the translation and localization industry, I was itching to get back into marketing full-time or break into recruitment. Problem was, all my marketing experience was either freelance and the closest experience I had to recruitment was launching an internship program.

Without a mentor of my own, I relied on making valuable connections to get my "foot in the door." By learning how to network intentionally, leverage my own uniqueness, and use confidence to my advantage, I've successfully made a career pivot twice in less than year—once from localization project management into events marketing, and again to recruitment marketing during a global pandemic. I've also helped co-found two start-ups!

From my experience networking and working in recruitment marketing, .I know what hiring managers look for in desired candidates and I know what does and does not work when it comes to securing your dream job.

My Three C's for Career Success:
Curiosity, Commitment, and Confidence.

I teach others how to crack the code on "how to be yourself" when it comes to interviewing and job hunting with actionable plans and strategies rooted in your own curiosity, commitment, and confidence.

As a job seeker, it's easy to forget that at the end of the day, hiring managers and recruiters are looking to hire REAL people. You have everything you need to be successful; my job as a coach is to help you realize your strengths and use them to your advantage.
