Jose Alejandro Correa
Technical Marketing Engineer, Cisco

I am a Technical Marketing Engineer at Cisco. Currently, I am working on building world-class collateral, giving valuable presentations and training demonstrations, and implementing effective product management/product strategy in order to enable sales and drive customer adoption of our Enterprise products.

As a first-generation immigrant and the first in my immediate family to go to a university in America, I didn't have that many resources or mentors to guide me. Wonsulting has been a community that always helps and inspires me to strive to improve. I enjoy learning from the Wonsulting community and giving back whenever I can. Outside of work, I am passionate about helping students with career exploration and development. I am a video game enthusiast and food lover.

Ami Patel
Incoming Product Manager, Microsoft

Hi, I’m Ami! I’m a first-generation student and incoming product manager. Upon graduating from UC Irvine with a BS in Computer Science and Business Information Management as a first-generation student, I went on to pursue my Masters in Project Management at USC.

I felt imposter syndrome and experienced many rejections year after year till I reframed my approach. My perseverance paid off as I landed internships at Tesla and Splunk that prompted me along my current path. I found my confidence and started sharing my #AuthenticAmi journey realizing I wasn't alone and I hope to help you find yours too! When I’m not working, you can find me watching anime or lettering. I also enjoy playing volleyball and exploring new food joints.

Yifan Gong
Lead Coordinator, Udemy

Hey y'all! I'm Yifan, and I currently work at Udemy by leading our recruiting coordination team. Before I was in tech, I had a (semi-short) career as a dancer and I spent about 10 years in retail management. I was a transfer student at Cal (Go Bears!) and graduated from the business school in 2017 and started my tech career after that. My first job was in sales development at LinkedIn, and then I pivoted to recruiting as a recruiting coordinator over at Instacart and then to my current role with Udemy.

Super excited to meet you all and help turn underdogs into winners! As someone with a super non-traditional background, I'm ready to use my experience to help y'all find your dream roles.

Patricia Young
Incoming Account Manager, Facebook

I am a first generation Latina and Asian Pacific Islander student at the University of Texas at Austin double majoring in Marketing and Human Dimensions of Organizations. I am a Bill and Melinda Gates Scholar graduating debt-free with a full time job at Facebook lined up for summer 2021. I am a huge advocate for women in tech and previously interned at companies such as Google and Facebook over the past two summers.

I am excited to be a mentor for The20, as I know what it’s like coming from a non target school with no experience in the outside world such as employment. This current job market is hard and I’m here to help you push through the BS and take what is yours! Let’s do this and get you employed!
