What Others are Saying

"The value of the First Round Ready courses and workbooks is off-the-charts. There's nothing out there that compares to relevancy, the level of detail, and the practical frameworks Erika teaches.

Each workbook is worth hundreds of dollars in time saved alone, and the course is worth thousands because of how much it increases your odds of success. It's clear that Erika cares about your success, and she packs in tons of value and gold nuggets that only an interview coach would know."

--G.D., First Round Ready customer, Amazon Operations PgM

"I attribute my success in landing TPM jobs at both Google and Amazon to using Coach Erika's tools and frameworks."

-- V.S., L6 TPM at Google

"Cracking a PM role in a top tech company needs 90% of your own hard work, but you can get there faster with the right context, tools, and frameworks. I am lucky to have found Coach Erika. Her approach was the key to cracking my first round interview and eventually landing my dream job at Google."

-- K.B., L5 PM at Google

"The knowledge/expertise Erika has is mind-blowing! Coach Erika finally helped me crack behavioral interviews. Having a lot of recent, relevant questions to practice with helps a ton. I even got asked some of these questions in my interviews.

Thanks to this course, I was able to land a Sr. Software Engineering job at a tech company that I truly admire. Highest ROI investment of my career. :)"

-- G.S., Sr. Software Engineer (at a FinTech Unicorn)

"Coach Erika's tools, and frameworks helped me focus and quickly prep for the first round with Apple. I passed with flying colors, and then I ended up hiring Erika for 1:1 coaching before my Final Rounds, to polish my stories and solidify my use of the frameworks -- and BOOM! I got a product management job at Apple. Don't hesitate! Anything she's offering is high quality and will improve your odds."

About me (Coach Erika)

My mission is to help 10 million people land their dream jobs.

As a hiring manager at Big Tech and unicorn startups, I've conducted thousands of First-Round interviews. In November '20, I became an interview coach.

My candidates were scoring offers left and right, with 93% of them landing their dream jobs after as few as 3-5 sessions with me.

The word got out, and I was soon overwhelmed by hundreds of candidates asking for my help 1:1. That's when I decided to package my tools and frameworks and make them available to more people.
