Kind words from cohort members and clients...

“I recently completed two months at my new job, and I am really liking it here. I am really enjoying the work and my supervisor is a great mentor. I am actually doing work I have always wanted to do. And I really owe this to you. Thank you so much for helping me in my most tough times! [Redacted] is giving me a very good exposure and definitely shaping me to become a better engineer!”



“I am really enjoying the Underdog Engineers' content and learning how to properly network on LinkedIn has by far been the most helpful. I have used those techniques to connect with design folks on LinkedIn (+100 last month)! Thanks a ton!”

I believe in you.

Through public speaking, videos, blogging, and online courses, Mel shares how to take a human-centered approach to engineering career-building.
