Janet Matta, M.Ed.

Career Advisor Extraordinaire

Oh man, I totally know how you feel. With three major career changes in my twenties (including Dance Teacher, Oil Spill Responder, and Career Counselor), I know what it feels like to try to invent an answer to the question “Now what?”. I have now built up 10 years of experience in advising and educating young professionals, and nothing motivates me more than helping you navigate your next career move. 

I received my undergrad degree from Queen's University in Ontario, Canada, and my Masters Degree is in Student Development from Seattle University. I have extensive experience in advising university students from my work as a Career Advisor at the University of Washington in Seattle, and as Career Development Manager at the University of Technology Sydney. I talk with students and recent grads about all aspects of career development, including “what do I want to be when I grow up”, school/university/major choice, job search, internships, resumes, LinkedIn and social media profiles, interviewing, salary negotiation, and more. I specialize in unconventional career paths, and in people who want to do something different (freelancing or starting a company? I can help.). If you’re an aspiring professional and need help figuring out your next  move, I’ve got your back.

I've been published in the media a few times, and you can read what it's like to work with me here. View my complete professional profile via LinkedIn, and when I'm not on wi-fi you can find me in the mountains!
