Everything You Need to Know About Salary Negotiation with the Founder of Career Contessa

Lauren founded Career Contessa in 2013 after experiencing a gap in career development resources for women who might be job searching, soul searching, leading and managing, or trying to find new ways to advance within their careers. With women accounting for more than 50% of the workforce and the workforce being less defined than ever before, it seemed crazy (and outdated) that a resource for us didn’t exist.
Formerly, Lauren was a University Recruiter for Hulu focused on hiring, employer branding, and program management.
Career Contessa now helps over 1 million women navigate their careers each year and has partnered with a number of leading brands including Dollar Shave Club, FabFitFun, HomeAway, and Pandora, to provide their subscribers with an insider’s look at job opportunities with some of the country’s most exciting and fastest-growing companies. Lauren’s career expertise has been featured in Business Insider, Entrepreneur, Fast Company, Forbes, Refinery29 and many other leading business and lifestyle publications.
Welcome, Lauren. We’ve both been building businesses in this same career niche for years and we’ve been talking about connecting for a long time so I am so excited that we finally get to do it today!!
