After seven years of recruiting in the finance and fashion industries, Jaime Petkanics now helps people land their dream jobs through her career consultancy, The Prepary.
“I originally thought I’d work mostly with students and recent grads, but I also work with people who are five, 10, even 15 years into their careers and looking to make a move.”
With such a broad spectrum of client needs to fulfill, Jaime’s offerings range from reviewing resumes and holding mock interviews, all the way to ongoing coaching throughout a job search. And as a one-woman show, she needs to keep her many different priorities organized.
For that, she uses Calendly.
“Calendly is a huge timesaver. Setting up a session can take up to six emails otherwise. When you’re working with many different clients, that really adds up. Now, the process is a lot more efficient and professional.”
When a client signs up to get career coaching, Jaime emails a link to her scheduling page and in just a few clicks, her client is scheduled for their first session without delay or any emails. Jaime is able to keep her calendar full and focus on winning results for her clients, rather than trading messages and finding shared availability.
The professional UX and UI of Calendly are key. Given Jaime’s position as an expert on the hiring process, she wants her clients to see a sleek page and go through a simple process to schedule. It’s all a part of creating a professional experience that aligns with her brand.
“I have a solid understanding of what people are looking for on resumes, in cover letters and in interviews. I need to be able to instill trust early on, so I can share what I know with those who need it.”
With a trustworthy platform and hassle-free scheduling process in place, Jaime can truly focus on consulting—with confidence that new clients are signing up while she works.
“Giving clients an easy, one-step process makes them more inclined to book. I’m working on my own right now, so anything I can do to fill my calendar with clients is amazing.”
