Associate Director, A Global Real Estate Fund
It has been truly a privilege to have met Angelina when I was coming out of business school and faced with the crossroad of how to kick start my career post MBA. Angelina undoubtedly provided full support to me with her keen insights of industry and with great empathy to help me make the career decision that puts me on the right direction for my career aspirations. I cannot thank her enough for her care and guidance during that period. During her time at Tishman Speyer, Angelina was our biggest champion of employee growth and development
VP External Relations, One of the Largest International Banks
Angelina helped me to make a successful transition from education to the financial sector. I had no clue what the interviewers’ expectations were nor how to interview well in the financial sector as I only worked in the university my entire career. But I landed my dream job in the world’s top bank in a few months after receiving her advice. She also gave me valuable guidance on future career advancement which sets me on a fast track to success.
Managing Director, A Top Hong Kong Listed Real Estate Developer
I got to know Angelina sometime in late 2012 before I joined Tishman Speyer. She assisted me and guided me in going through the seven rounds of interview, which is the most I have gone through in my career so far.
Angelina had helped me not only in how to prepare each round of interview, but also help me identify my areas required improvements. After I joined Tishman Speyer, she continued to help me quickly adapt to the team and environment.
She had been very professional and friendly in the whole process, and I really had a great time working with her. In mid 2014, I decided to leave the company and moved back to Singapore due to the project was postponed indefinitely
Director, A US-Based NGO
Before I started in this role, I had difficulties in knowing how to position myself, especially with headhunters. Angelina helped me to bring focus to my strengths and highlight them, which made my LinkedIn profile more visible in searches. She also shared with me the best practices for going through the application and interview process. As a result, during my job search phase I was receiving 2-3 headhunter requests each week, and I went through my interviews with a distinct clarity of purpose. I’m now in what I consider to be a dream job, with global impact and work-life balance integrated. Angelina has really helped me to realise my value to my organisation, and to look at total compensation when considering a role.

Director, A Leading Marketing Solutions Company, US
By following Angelina’s system, I didn’t have to apply for jobs online. I successfully switched to an entirely new industry I thought would be impossible before. I landed the job I loved in a few weeks and negotiated an excellent total package and flex working terms. I could have never imagined I could achieve these nor ask for a significant raise when I was already laid off.
