About Laura Rivchun
As an interview coach and founder of Chrysalis Career Coaching, I work with individuals who are in career transition, helping them develop solid interview skills so they can realize their ideal career. My clients include executives, mid-level managers, millennials, and undergraduate college students.
A former executive recruiter for over 12 years in New York City, I’ve worked with global firms such as Goldman Sachs and The McGraw-Hill Companies and understand first-hand what hiring managers look for in their ideal candidate and why certain candidates get passed over. My interview coaching techniques prepare my clients for today’s highly competitive market so they can secure positions at Fortune 500 companies.
I’m an ardent advocate of mentoring and believe everyone needs a champion to be inspired and encouraged. I’ve mentored individuals and groups at Year UP, American Corporate Partners (ACP), International Association of Women (IAW), and Advertising Women of New York (AWNY). As long as I can remember, I’ve been passionate about helping others and my involvement as a mentor has been an extremely rewarding and life changing experience.
My professional life began as a featured singer in a group that performed in stadiums, large venues, and television in Argentina and Chile. It was the thrill and opportunity of a lifetime. Years later, my life took a different path and I became a recruiter in the publishing, financial, and creative industries. It was then I discovered my skills and passion were helping individuals in the challenging and often scary process of job hunting and career transition. I knew my purpose was to impart my expertise and provide insight for others through my own personal experience. It was clear I found my calling.
I’ve been a resident of Manhattan for more years than I can remember and the innumerable resources and diversity have always fascinated and influenced me. I feel grateful that my life is rich with meaningful relationships, a rewarding career, my meditation practice, and my various volunteer work.
