The Career Diet - Shobhith Testimonial

I learned that strangers love to help

Anna, thank you so much for helping me have the frameworks to learn how to network correctly and get on phone calls with strangers to discuss potential roles I was considering. I learned that strangers love to help and exactly how to reach out to land phone calls to discuss roles I wanted to break into!”

Chris Puca, Customer Success Manager

Student: Pinar

It changed my life!

“Anna is a genius. Networking can be such an abstract concept to someone with zero experience like me but she broke it down to very simple and actionable steps that changed my life. By lesson 3, I was already landing interviews and even gotten advocacy from a Partner in my firm who asked HR to give me a second chance when I let my nerves get the best of me and failed my first interview!”

Xindi S., EY, Assurance - Senior Associate

You want to grow in your career but you continue to eschew networking.

You can probably relate to one of these…

  • You have heard that networking is the way to a get dream interviews but you don’t know where to even start
  • You feel like networking as icky because it means you have to exploit others for personal gain
  • You find networking awkward and stressful because you have to make shallow, insincere connections in a room full of strangers
  • You tried networking before but it didn’t go anywhere and you hated it so you don’t understand what all the hype is about

What if I told you that networking can be ick-free, fun, joyful and enriching?

8 years ago, I graduated from a competitive business school. I was feeling confident in my perfectly manicured resume and excited to get started on the future I envisioned. Little did I know what actually lies ahead of me.

Countless rejections later, I found myself defeated and unmotivated… that is, until I discovered the skill of networking.

Since then, I’ve moved cities, changed careers twice, received multiple job offers without a single job application, built a successful career in enterprise sales where I network for a living and actually enjoy it!

In my 5 years in the recruitment industry, I’ve worked with top employers in Canada, read thousands of resumes, and talked to hundreds of qualified candidates, only to reject 99% of them as they weren’t what the recruiters were looking for. And so I founded The Career Diet to share my tips and tricks on how to become the Star Candidate I was looking for as a recruiter.

I also started thinking about how I can help job applicants in a way that is more impactful than the free advice I give on Instagram but more accessible than my exclusive Star Candidate Program.

How can I teach you the most important aspect of job search in the least amount of time?

This is what inspired me to create my Network like a Pro course!

Anna Belyaeva - The Career Diet - About Me

This is for ambitious professionals who:

  • Are applying online but not landing interviews (even when meeting all the requirements)
  • Want to grow in their career long-term by building their network in an enjoyable and sustainable way
  • Want to have job opportunities come to them without applying by learning how to navigate the hidden job market

In just 10 lessons, I’ll teach you how to get started on your networking journey…

Following my proven step by step networking process.

It took me 8 years to master this process and in this comprehensive course, I have packaged and streamlined everything I learned in these proven steps. I will teach you how to make connections, book meetings, have meaningful networking conversations, and to stay in touch long-term.

This is the same process that landed Kim a brand new job in a brand new industry, whilst putting her on track to doubling her salary in 6 months…

… and Laura, who went from being stressed out by the job search process to landing her dream job within a month!

Before this, the only way to get access to this formula was through my exclusive coaching program, the Star Candidate Program, which costs $1,997 to enroll.

But when you join the Network like a Pro program today, you’ll get it for $297

    What past students are saying: you’ll see the results fast!

    What My Students Say

    Student Vidhan

    It was via networking that I landed this new job in a brand new industry

    “One of the most powerful tools Anna taught me is networking. It was via networking that I landed this new job in a brand new industry. Within two months in Anna’s program, I was able to leave my unfulfilling, underpaying job and I landed a position at a tech startup as an account executive. Definitely the most illustrious title I’ve had under my belt, and if things go to plan, I’m on my way to doubling my salary within 6 months. If you are ready to put in the worth and recognize your own potential, Anna is your person. Do it!!!”

    Kim N., Account Executive, Ed-Tech

    Student: Pinar

    I used to think that organizations post their vacancies online

    “I didn’t know much about job search process. I used to think that organizations post their vacancies online, but The Career Diet helped me realize that the market is not bounded to those applications and helped me in getting into the market which is accessible to candidates with pro-active approach. I would definitely recommend anyone who is thinking about taking up Career Diet to just GO FOR IT 100%!! It is going to change your approach of job search.”

    What if I don’t have the right personality to be a pro-networker?

    When I first heard of the term ‘networking’, I was terrified. I was an international student in Canada who is still learning the English language and the last thing I wanted to do is to go into a room full of executives and speak to them. That is, until I discovered that networking is a skill anyone can learn! And like any skill, it can be practiced.

    How much time will it take each day?

    This is a self-paced training to be completed at your own pace. I know sometimes life can get in the way so I’ve designed this training to be able to fit around your schedule.

    Does this training work for all markets and industries?

    Yes! The networking process that I’ll be teaching can be used for any industry or role. I’ve used the same process when I changed my career from accounting to consumer goods. My students have also used it for a wide range of industries from Ed-Tech to Management Consulting to Space Science!

    Is there a refund policy?

    The Network like a Pro program is specifically created for people who understand the value behind this experience and have set the intention to actually apply the practical tools and insights provided in these lessons.

    When you join the program, you have instant access to skills that will shape your journey for many years to come. This means no more sacrificing what you really want to do or settling for the second-best role

    That is my guaranteed ‘return’ to you.
