About Carolyn

Hi there! My name is Carolyn and I’m excited to help you reach your career goals whether applying to an MBA program, interviewing for a consulting firm, or simply tightening up your resume and interview skills to land your next role. I recently graduated from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business as part of their full-time MBA program. Prior to attending business school, I was a recruiter for four years with a top professional services firm helping undergraduate students from across the U.S. land their first internship or full-time role. In my work as a recruiter, I helped hundreds of students by fine-tuning their resumes and providing interview tips and tricks for success. After a fulfilling stint as a talent professional, I wanted to make the switch into consulting and decided a full-time MBA program would be the most efficient route to equip me with the skills and experience to accomplish this. Although the MBA application process was long and tedious, I’m excited to share what helped me gain admission into a school and program in which I felt I would thrive. During my second year as an MBA student at Fuqua, after successfully navigating the consulting preparation and interview process myself throughout my first year, I took on a more formal role with a local college helping their students prepare for consulting interviews by giving mock case interviews. I have now conducted 50+ mock case interviews with these students, passing on what I have learned about case interviews to them through hour long interview/feedback sessions. On a more personal note, I grew up as a competitive dancer starting dance at the age of 4, and even danced at Radio City Music Hall! Although I don’t dance now as much as I would like to, I am a huge Broadway and musical theater enthusiast having seen 30+ Broadway shows in NYC and across the U.S. (if you have any show recommendations I would love to hear them!).

Why do I coach?

I coach because coaching and mentorship have played a big role in the development of my professional career and personal life. I have been fortunate to receive mentorship throughout my career that has propelled me forward, and I want to give back to others who may be interested in advancing themselves in some way. I also strongly believe in the 1:1 mentor/mentee model. In the past, I have been a big sister as part of Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of NYC as well as a program lead for the Society for Early Entrepreneurs (SEE) which pairs Durham high school students with Duke Fuqua mentors to teach them about entrepreneurship. Both of these experiences showed me the positive impact that coaching someone consistently in a 1:1 setting can have.
