hi, I'm Jenna
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.
The practice of giving myself a little grace, IPAs,
supporting you in living your best life
skirting the issue,

the word "can't",
living to work

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...
