Tyson has been very helpful. He helps me sift through the noise and just focus on what I need to focus on. He also calls me out when I'm making a mistake - we've only been working together for a month, and I feel like I've already made a ton of progress.

I found Edith awhile ago and I, like many other students, was sort of struggling with what my career would look like, especially with COVID. I was trying to figure out things for myself. I've always been proud of having a bias towards action, and what made me really excited about Edith was what it could do for me as a non-technical candidate from a non-target school. I wanted to meet people who could give insight not just into careers, but launching products and going to market with a product.

At the time, I just started my company Dorm Ops and I wanted some early advice for my go to market strategy. I used the free platform on Edith and met a bunch of really awesome people that gave advice that ultimately helped me pivot my company and bootstrap up to 25 employees within a month. Because of that I kept tabs on what Edith was doing, and after I found out about the Fellowship I thought it was a win-win. Financially it was awesome, and I know I have some knowledge gaps that the mentors can help plug. So it's been awesome.

Tyson [Jeremy's mentor] has been very helpful. It can be overwhelming to recruit for product management, and what Tyson does really well is delineates everything I need to do into steps. After being inundated with all the recruiting resources and newsletters, he helps me sift through the noise and just focus on what I need to focus on. Something that he does well that no other programs do is calling me out when I'm making a mistake or not holding myself accountable. It's cool because we've only been working together for a month, and I feel like I've already made a ton of progress.
