Lilia is an excellent career coach! She possesses a unique blend of experiences in both software engineering and talent acquisition domains. Lilia helped me with multiple recommendations and suggestions on how big tech recruiting is different from startup needs. She is very passionate, positive and has an extremely energetic attitude
TA Leader, Meta
When I was applying for my first job in software development, I reached out to Lilia to ask for help setting up my resume, preparing for interviews, and making connections. She went above and beyond, spending as much time with me as I needed for each of these, and she even referred me to a hiring manager at Atlassian, where I ended up accepting an offer! Lilia especially understands that people have a lot of individualized factors that they use to make decisions, and really helped me think about exactly what I was looking for, not just in a job, but in my future as a software engineer. I definitely recommend talking to Lilia about any upcoming job search, and I am sure she can help you no matter what place in your career you find yourself in.

I don’t know whether Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was actually right or not, I don’t know whether I am a talent to recognize genius or not, but I am a professional and can surely recognize one. And such is Lilia. During my whole career I have never met a recruiter or an HR person who tried to understand me so deeply as a professional and as a person. Her tips on improving my resume cannot be overestimated; her advice on job searching strategies are indispensable; her understanding of the market is realistic and solid. Thank you, Lilia!
Lilia has a rare quality of putting your mind at ease by humanizing the interview process. I had the pleasure of working with Lilia over a few months as she guided me in preparing for my interviews at Amazon and Facebook. Lilia bolstered my confidence by highlighting my strengths, while laying out a clear path forward for improvement. She gave useful tips about how to best communicate my ideas, and provided insights into what recruiters and interviewers are evaluating. After every interview she was eager to follow-up and dissect learning moments. When it came time to negotiate my offers, Lilia helped me understand the incentives at play and assisted me in creating an effective strategy. Lilia’s advice was key in giving me perspective throughout the whole process and I would definitely recommend her guidance to others.
Lilia was my mentor when I started at Elti Solutions, and I could not have asked for a better way to begin my recruiting career. She taught me how to stay on top in recruiting business by attending webinars, reading books, following industry blogs, and paying attention to all of the details about my candidates. She is a motivational and compassionate manager. I believe Lilia is an extremely smart choice for any company's talent acquisition needs. Senior Recruiter, PacBio I was in the middle of a "career hiccup" when I met with Lilia and I was very glad that I spoke with her. She gave me a lot of very good advice not only on my job search, but also the options that are available to me that before then, I was not even considering. Thanks Lilia for giving me the confidence that I can actually start a business of my own, and do something that I am very passionate about.

I was looking for a Data Scientist position and it was my first experience in exploring start-up opportunities in Silicon Valley. Lilia helped me to get through every step in the job search and interview process. Not only does she have a deep knowledge of the software industry and its demand for professionals, but also she can feel and guide the search in the right direction. Lilia listened to me carefully about my former experience and discussed in which area I would like to develop professionally. She gave me very helpful advice on how to demonstrate my skills and achievements in an accurate and concise form and how to make my resume clear to the readers. She gave some hints on how to enhance the searchability of my web profiles among recruiters and also gave recommendations on positions to look for. She gave me as much time as I needed to get the answers to all of my questions and our meeting raised my confidence and helped in a successful job search result.

As a soon graduating student I spoke with Lilia to get some advice on the job market. She was very prompt in responding to all my questions, and always made herself available to help.

She gave me great resources to look into, as well as searched for openings on my behalf herself. Lilia was a great help in general, and if I ever need to find another job I'm sure I will be getting in touch with her again.
