Ela’s journey into software engineering is inspiring, both for folks outside of the tech world but also for those of us already part of it.
In my case, Ela encouraged me to prepare for the technical interview and apply for a role at Microsoft, despite not having been selected before.
Her advice and recommendations have been invaluable to me and thanks to them I’m happy to say I’ll be joining Microsoft soon!Incoming Software Engineer at Microsoft 🙂
Finding Ela on social media has been life-changing for me. I have over 4 years of experience working as a Software Engineer. Nonetheless, I am always open and happy to learn from others and Ela’s blog was not an exception.
Not only I’ve learned about what makes Microsoft such a special place to work (I would like to highlight here the article with Ela’s reflections after a year working as a Software Engineer at Microsoft), but I’ve also found incredible interview preparation material, such as the Interview Preparation Checklist and others.
All this information gave me insight into Microsoft’s culture and behind the scenes and how it reflects the mission and values of the company. It also equipped me with confidence that I have what it takes to go through the interview process. And recently I signed an offer with Microsoft. I am very excited about it and I wanted to say thank you to Ela for all the hard work!Mariia Kornieva
I had a great pleasure benefitting from Ela’s 1:1 Consultation offer. Not only was she very responsive, energetic and professional but most importantly she provided me with the top notch tips on how to boost my CV and expose the invisible.
Now with this new resume, my candidate profile looks very attractive from a technological and business perspective. As well myself I feel much more confident about finding a new opportunity. Now it is just a matter of time.
I can strongly recommend Ela’s 1:1 Consultation offer absolutely to everyone and will certainly revert to it in the futureMarta Jezierska
Big thank you Ela for helping me to land my first job. In my family I’m the first member working in tech, and without guidance job hunting is really overwhelming. I was applying blindly on several platforms for jobs and getting demotivated.
After reading two blogs of Ela I changed my LinkedIn profile and apply for a few more jobs and get hired as a ReactJS developer. So thank you Ela for being kind and helpful.Shivam Mishra
I took part in a 1:1 consultation with Ela around beginning my Software Engineering career without a Computer Science degree, and I found the session extremely useful.
Ela was personable and down-to-earth, which quickly put me at ease, and very knowledgeable about the industry and recruitment into it. She gave some very useful tips and provided me with great resources.Berenika Kotelko
I contacted Ela after various research on the internet seeking a career change back to tech – her career change story resonated with me instantly. Meeting with Ela was the right move for me as she has almost a decade of world class experience in talent sourcing and transition to the tech space.
Ela was also honest and detailed about her feedback while going through my profile and resume. For each review she made there were calls to action and golden tips on how to transform my LinkedIn profile to a more highly ranked profile. She gave me ideas and pointers on how to integrate keywords with respect to my field of interest.
This was the perfect session and I know it can only get better from here. Thank you for sharing your time and for your commitment to what you do to help others succeed in tech.Michael Ifeanyi
I approached Ela with possibly a different situation to most others. I have worked in tech for the best part of 10 years, and always assumed I was not good enough to be a software engineer.
Ela took the time to understand my situation and what I was hoping to achieve. Her own first-hand experience combined with her history in recruitment were a great help in helping me understand my options and she was able to provide very detailed insights into how I should approach my goal.
During my time with Ela she helped me create an action plan including detailed steps I need to consider when moving towards my goal. In the past few weeks since speaking with Ela I truly feel like I have significantly more confidence and made more progress than I managed to achieve in the several years before.
I took part in some individual mentoring sessions with Ela and they were incredibly helpful for me. She showed me valuable insights and priceless market knowledge that is not available in any other places. After describing issues that I met, she immediately recommends actions to be taken directly after meetings. I met with Ela several times and after each session and homework that I received, I saw the real progress in achieving my career goals. It’s worth underlining that Ela’s support doesn’t end after the session – she still sends me updated insights and any other useful materials.Rafal Zabinski
P.S. As a previous Talent Sourcer she will definitely find details on your resume or LinkedIn profile that nobody hasn’t noticed yet, but these small details make a big difference 🙂
Ela offered free consultation for women in International Women’s Day(such a nice initiative) through her LinkedIn profile and I was one of the lucky winners! Her advice about my resume and LinkedIn profile were to the point and exactly what I needed as a undergraduate student.Her previous experience as a Recruiter helped me understand what really counts in a resume or LinkedIn profile!Thank you Ela for your advice and support!! 🙂Christina Pardali
I went to 1:1 consultations with Ela, and she was great! The biggest advantage I can point out is that I gained new hope about achieving my goals. Ela understood my problem immediately and where I wanted to be. She went overboard with advice, and she even expanded my network. I got an insight into what I could improve in my CV and LinkedIn, as well as some pointers in changing my approach towards my goals, which is product management in Big Tech. Would definitely recommend. Thanks again Ela, and I’ll keep you updated on my career journey.Mateja Koncurat

I participated in the Ela’s initiative-Free LinkedIn profile review for #WomenInTech. And I can say that it exceeded my expectations! She carefully reviewed my resume (section by section, incluiding my LinkedIn URL) and she gave me uselful recommendations to get the most out of it in this moment when I am switching my career into Tech world.
For girls like me, who are starting the IT journey it is super valuable to count with this kind of support, so I really thank you Ela! 🙂@melitsuko
