About the presenter
Alejandra Hernandez is the founder of empowherchange, where she coaches individuals on how to manage their careers in a way that inspires a life of productivity, economic freedom, and fulfillment. As a child of immigrant parents, she mastered the job search and career clarity process through trial + error in the corporate space. With no one in the family to provide tips and insights in the job search process, she was able to master it through practice, landing jobs in different career paths, industries, and cities. Her career clarity process was born out of a dire moment to find a career path that truly matched her needs, and it's how she landed in corporate career coaching. Since then, Alejandra has branched off on her own to help individuals specifically in the career clarity process that finally brought her joy in her career and life overall. Her expertise is in career clarity, human design, emotional intelligence, confidence building, linkedin optimization, interview coaching, salary negotiation, and networking. Alejandra is a graduate of the University of Maryland, College Park where she received her B.A. in sociology.
