My proven framework that has helped hundreds of students land their dream job in WEEKS
This program consists of self-paced online modules that cover every aspect of the job hunting journey and access to unlimited coaching.
That's right, you can join our group coaching calls even after you land the job.
I cannot tell you which one module made a difference for me. Not the networking module, not the interview module. Rather, it’s the program as a whole that brings it all together. Anna taught me the skills I needed to find my dream job. And that gave me a sense of control and confidence that is reflected when dealing with people in interviews and networking chats.
Instead of investing in services that depreciate in value. For example, hiring someone to craft a strong resume for me. I wanted to invest in something that won’t leave me dependent on them. With The Star Candidate Program, I was taught the skills that I will use again and again in the future.
One thing that stood out to me about the program is Anna’s personalised touch. You could tell that the program is a part of her, a very important part of herself. And that is how she treated all of us when working with her. I had lots of questions and would constantly disturb her but she answered all my questions very calmly and assured me when I overthink.
The Star Candidate Program will be will be one of the best investments you can make in yourself.
It helped me realign myself to my work and life goals and tackle the entire process head-on in a very straightforward but strategic way. And one the most important part of the program came down to working on my mindset and shifting from a state of fear to a state of confidence and believing in myself.
I landed this job within 7 weeks of starting the Star Candidate Program. It was the most challenging interview process I’ve ever gone through and it had been made known to me that I was the least experienced candidate in the selection pool however I did my best to demonstrate and highlight my skills versus my experience. My offer is €32K more than my previous salary. I’m over the moon!
Enrolling in the Star Candidate Program was probably one of the best investments I made in myself as a student. The things I learned here were absolutely crucial in getting a full-time job offer while being a student abroad. I was stressed about the job-seeking process when I started, but in the end, I got to graduate with multiple offers to choose from! If it hadn’t been for the things I learned in this course, I probably would have spent more time and energy on figuring things out by myself and may have settled for less. It gave me a new perspective on the whole job-seeking process, to say the least, and I’m really happy with the results!

Anna was a joy to work with. Having an expert on my side to help navigate the job market was invaluable. With Anna's help, I was able to not only find a new job in the next step of my career journey but she also made me realize that these are skills that I will stay with me for the rest of my career, and something I’ll continue to work on and develop further.
I learned what strategic networking is and how imperative it is network all the time. It was also vitally important to learn how much negotiation is involved in a job offer. I had two offers and Anna’s approach helped me strategically push both companies and negotiate the best offer for myself, resulting in $55k salary increase.
Anna's program provided guidance for every step in my journey which concluded with me finding the fabulous opportunity I was looking for. Thank you Anna.
Before The Star Candidate program, I was going on LinkedIn, looking for jobs and sending resumes into an empty void. My strategy was customizing my resume to each job - I spent a lot of time doing that. After 3 months, I knew something has to change and joined The Star Candidate program.
After I joined, I felt like I took my power back. I realized that I am in a position to choose the job I want. I got clarity and instead of applying to every random company, I got really specific with where I wanted to work.
I took Anna's advice to network everywhere: I was reaching out to people on LinkedIn and making connections in real life. Through a referral, I got introduced to a private Slack community of people in the industry I was targeting, sustainability. This is how I got introduced to the hiring manager for a role that looked interesting and met with him and a couple of my future coworkers before applying. This kickstarted a very long interview process. I was so grateful for The Star Candidate program because I was confident in my responses!
I landed a job a lot more senior than my previous role, working with organizations like the UN and WWF and securing 41% salary increase.

Before the program, I was actively applying for jobs but not getting far. The Star Candidate Program taught me to proactively go after the job opportunities.
I got the offer I’m so excited about and I can’t express how thankful I am for all your help and support throughout my journey. I have waited for this moment for a long time and I’m still trying to digest it. I can’t believe I got my target compensation number!
If you’re considering the Star Candidate program, definitely go for the if you’re struggling to get interviews and land offers! It’s a great program to learn these important skills that are usually not taught in universities.
I came to Anna in a very vulnerable state (crying myself to sleep and beating myself up for being such a “loser”). Yet, it took us less than two months (given the 2-3-week holiday season, COVID climate, and very (very) niche industry) to land a job in a desirable field with a higher than expected salary, and $8k more than my previous role.
Anna’s Career Diet looks like a simple and straight-forward program. However, you uncover a lot of things as you go. We all know the power of LinkedIn, networking, research, ATS system, etc. Another thing is to know how to approach the job hunt in a smart and strategic way. The Career Diet goes deeper than that – in a way, it’s almost like going through therapy. Along with figuring out your career path, you also get to discover your real passions, aspirations, and goals.

Not long ago, I was in your position. I grew up in a small Russian town in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by people who have never lived outside of our little town nor traveled much.
Growing up, my family didn’t have a lot of money and I never had the chance to learn how to speak English fluently until I was in my 20s.
Despite all of that, I have since lived in 5 countries, 7 cities, attended a competitive business school in Canada on a scholarship, changed careers twice without starting from the bottom or taking a pay cut, received multiple 6 figure job offers, and built a successful sales career abroad… all while having to speak a foreign language every day.
And trust me when I say this hasn’t been an easy path…
Early on in my career, there were countless job interviews, rejections from my dream jobs, A LOT of tears, self-doubt, and settling for okay offers.
It took me years to understand what it takes to master the job skills and in the Star Candidate Program, you get to fast-track the journey.
In this program, I have broken down everything I’ve learned in a proven and structured framework that teaches you how to be seen as a top candidate and how to be sought after by the top employers in the country. I will give you the arsenal of tools needed to be a Star Candidate - from personal branding to a standout resume, we will have you ready to wow your dream employer in no time.
I went from a struggling international student abroad to the top salary in my industry. From countless auto rejections to 6 figure job offers that found me, without me looking or applying. From ‘Sorry we’ve had more experienced candidates’ to ‘What would it take for you to come on board’ just 15 minutes into a job interview. If I could do it, you could do it.
And of course… I will guide you on every step of the journey until you hear the ‘What would it take for you to come on board’ …
If that sounds like something you’re ready to commit to achieving, you might just be the next Star Candidate in line for that dream role!
I was able to finally land the job in my target field, operations, with $5K higher salary than the industry standard and 150% more than my previous job.
The program not only helped me get this job but also has changed my perspective about the job market. What I’ve learned will stay with me forever.
I know that work and life can get in the way, so I’ve designed the program to be self-paced. You have lifetime access to all video lessons and course materials - this way, you can access the topics you need coaching on whenever you need it, any time of the day. You also have unlimited coaching through weekly group coaching calls. I got your back!
Not at all! My past students come from all around the world: North America, Europe, India, and Australia. We have had students from over 30 countries!
You will start seeing results immediately - you will see huge mindset changes after watching the first few lessons.
I can’t guarantee that you will receive a job offer and how quickly you will receive it. This depends on your starting point, how complex your situation is (changing industries, moving countries, etc.), and how quickly you start implementing what you learn in the program. You do have my support and coaching until you get the offer - my policy is “No student left behind!”.
That said, past students have received job offers as fast as 3 weeks.
I offer 30-day ‘do the work’ full refund policy. This means that if within 30 days after joining the course you watch a reasonable number of video lessons, do all the exercises and assignments that come with them, log in for at least two live office hours, but feel like the program is not the right fit for you, I’ll issue a full refund. Check ‘Terms and Conditions’ for more.
