Rebecca, Ana and Linda Lee

Rebecca, Ana and Linda Lee. I met Linda Lee and Rebecca Martin at WordPress Camp in San Francisco. Linda is infectious, positive and knowledgeable, so you will walk away with additional insight about your website and blog. If you don't have one, she can help you with concept and design, as well as optimization for your website and blog.

Rebecca Martin is Founder of DearJane.info. She is an advice/career coach and has keen insight into individuals. The short time I spent with her helped me feel empowered and hopeful; I was quite motivated afterwards! She will be discussing the pros of Networking.

I decided to schedule a solid Meetup for the group Silicon Valley Virtual Assistant for Thursday, June 18, 2009 and was grateful to Linda and Rebecca for making the time for me and my group to speak to us.  Linda will talk about getting started online. She will cover websites, blogs and basics on getting started. “7 Reasons Why Every Business Owner Needs to have a Website or a Blog” followed by Rebecca Martin on Networking.

Rebecca Martin, founder of California based dear jane…, a career advisement company…, believes that people can succeed in landing the “perfect” job if they can first identify what is right for them.

As a corporate recruiter in Silicon Valley in the ’90s, Rebecca saw firsthand the personal and professional disorientation of thousands of workers displaced when the tech bubble burst. From this unique vantage point, Rebecca analyzed corporate clients’ hiring processes; job applicants’ resume-writing abilities and interviewing skills; and hiring managers’ practices and procedures.

By 2002, Rebecca had identified a pivotal factor in the success — or failure — of an individual in his or her chosen career: the ability to articulate a personal vision.

In 2004 Rebecca launched dear jane… with a proprietary career advisement program that includes career assessment, resume writing, interviewing methodologies, and compensation and other negotiations and much more.

Today, dear jane… develops and delivers career management training classes, workshops, seminars, and coaching to Fortune 1000 companies as well as individuals throughout the United States. Since its inception, dear jane… has enjoyed a 98% success rate in coaching clients through career transitions, successful interviewing, salary negotiations, and the like.

Rebecca’s speaking engagements take her to college career centers, job search work groups, professional association meetings, job fairs, Employment Development Department offices, and One-Stop Career Centers. She is an official Trainer for the US Government Employment Development Department (EDD).

A USC graduate with a B.S. in Business Administration, Rebecca has written and published the booklet “83 Tips on How to Successfully Work with Corporate and External Recruiters.” \She belongs to the Women’s National Book Association. She has recently appeared as a Career Consultant to the View from the Bay San Francisco’s ABC afternoon show.
