hi, I'm Jenna

I'm an interview prep and career coach who believes you've got exactly what it takes to build the career of your dreams. 

Daydreaming...it's something I’m great at... and when I started thinking about switching careers again, I felt all the feelings.  Happy, scared, excited, unsure...the list goes on.

The main thing that kept replaying in my mind though was, geez, I’m going to have to start over...

Which then lead to fears of, am I going to be able to make the same amount of money? Am I going to slow down my career progression? Is my partner going to feel frustrated that I’m bringing up this conversation...again? 

Because this wasn’t the first dream I had. 

Over the years I’ve had a lot of ideas; a jewelry designer (I had a little side hustle @allthingslovely), I thought interior decorator was smart so I began taking classes at a local college and then there was the children’s book author...I have a manuscript of Marlowe the Mermaid on standby...

So what finally made me pull the trigger?

My Own The Interview story begins when I finally had the courage to put myself out there and declare what it was I wanted. Without judgement, without fear, I went for it!

throughout my corporate career, I’ve had the privilege of interviewing many candidates over the years.

A consistent theme I saw emerge was qualified candidates (on paper) interview terribly. 

I knew they had the experience, the skills, the abilities and yet, I would see time and time again, candidates fail in powerfully conveying themselves IN AN interview setting. 

This ah-ha moment was when it all changed for me.
 
I knew my unique gift to offer to the world was supporting ambitious people (like you!) let go of their doubts, take charge of their careers and land their dream jobs.

I believe that following this method will support you in achieving whatever your next step is in your career journey; a promotion, a new role, a raise.
Prepping for interviews requires time. It requires stretching your mind. And, it requires your commitment to you.

I can’t wait to share all that I have planned to support you through your next career highlight.


Reflection, Research, Rehearse. This is Own The Interview’s method for success. 

2 years ago I wrote this intention for myself and stuck it in my wallet for safe keeping.

i am so grateful for the financial success of my interview business, my two babies, beautiful relationship/marriage with josh and my flexibility to travel frequently for pleasure.

Wisdom means to choose now what will make sense later.

WHERE TO NEXT?

ARE YOU READY TO LET GO OF SELF-DOUBT?

Remember the six-year-old kid in you that thought that anything was possible? 

The kid that had an unwavering belief that they could be a Starbucks barista, win the Nobel Prize, fly to the moon, go to university, become a President or Prime Minister, a parent, become a carpenter, an actress, an activist, a professional athlete, the next YouTube sensation...

And then one day at some point in your life, someone asked you a question, you witnessed someone failing (maybe yourself) or you were straight out told you couldn’t do it or it wasn’t possible. And, at that moment everything shifted. 

Doubt and uncertainty filled your whole body.

It became a realization that maybe it wasn’t possible. Maybe you didn’t have what it would ‘take’ to achieve the role, build the house, save the world...

What changed? 

Here’s what I think...it’s as simple as hearing someone else’s opinion and letting it influence your thought. 

Isn’t it crazy to think that we allow ourselves (me included!) to be influenced by others’ doubts and fears?

I get asked this question often, “How can I be more confident stepping into my interview?”...
