Jaime’s story

the prepary

The Prepary philosophy is rooted in the idea that a job search should be thoughtful, engaging  — even enjoyable. Sounds like an oxymoron. But Prepary founder Jaime Petkanics set out to create just that: job search advice with a personalized, straightforward, no-holds-barred approach.

Drawing on her background in recruiting and talent at top companies like J.P. Morgan and Tory Burch, Jaime saw firsthand what separated good from great candidates. She became passionate about sharing her knowledge with others and looking at the job search in a new way. Jaime isn’t your typical career expert — she offers strategic advice and a point of view directly from her experience on the other side of the table.

Advice, tools and one-on-one consulting that enables you to land a job you love.
