Eva Wisnik

Your Fairy Job Mentor

My name is Eva Wisnik, and I’m a career expert and corporate recruiter for America’s most prestigious firms. Over the past 25 years I’ve made millions of dollars placing top talent into financial institutions, law firms and consulting companies. I’ve made it my life’s mission to study what it really takes to achieve success and to feel fulfilled. Consider me Your Fairy Job Mentor.

I had to learn these things on my own. My parents were political refugees from a communist country, with little education. When I was a kid, I used to sit on the fire escape of our Bronx apartment with a copy of the Sunday Times, engrossed in the articles and daydreaming about what my life would be like when I worked for an elite firm in the city one day. I had big ambitions but no one to advise me on how to achieve them.

The one piece of advice I did get was that if I worked hard and went to good schools, I’d be all set. I studied hard and graduated from Columbia University, but I still had no clue how to choose the right field or navigate the working world. I eventually figured it out, but I had to learn the hard way, because it turned out there was a lot more to success than just getting good grades.

I created Your Fairy Job Mentor to share the real secrets of success, the ones you don’t learn in school, with a new generation of young professionals. I’ll provide you with the insights, skills, and tools you need to lead a successful career and a meaningful life, no matter how much uncertainty is happening in your world.
