"Annalisa guided me through the entire career change process – from portfolio preparation to salary negotiation. I got in touch with her when I was in the early stages of breaking into product design. I was completely lost and didn't know where to start and how to establish myself in the field. She was generous and very supportive from day one. We first started with my portfolio, Annalisa continuously reviewed and provided feedback on two self-initiated case studies I began creating (to add to my portfolio). She explained what skills I needed to work on and pointed me in the direction of how to improve. When I started applying for jobs, Annalisa empowered me with positivity and reassurance. She helped me prepare for interviews, shared techniques and practised whiteboard challenges with me. I got my first job offer as a Product Designer last week, I'm over the moon, but it wouldn't ever be possible without Annalisa's assistance and encouragement :)"
