Let’s talk about General Career!
Whether you know exactly what you want to do, or you have no clue where to start – we wanted to provide a space where you can ask a little bit of everything. These BobaMentors are available for students who want to ask a “mixed-bag” of questions when it comes to career development.
I joined BobaTalks as a mentor because I wished I had someone I could talk to about when I started my career. There was a lot of imposter syndrome and exploration throughout my own tech journey. Now, with more experience and knowledge, I want to share them back to the community!

Greetings, it’s Jocelynn – foodie, milk tea connoisseur, alpaca lover, and avid player of Pokémon/Animal Crossing! My other passion is connecting individuals with meaningful professional and academic opportunities. Growing up, I was fortunate to have had a mentor who guided me throughout my life to this day. I hope that by providing my knowledge, experiences, and (sometimes candid) advice I can give back to the community. Look forward to chatting!

Hi there! I’m Cindy and I’ve had a non-traditional and fulfilling career journey. I’m currently in a non-tech role at Snap. I’ve been mentoring and supporting students on/off for the last 2 years. I’m excited to continue giving back and hope I have an impact. I’m open to chatting through: difficult workplace conversations, DEI advocacy at work, mental health + work/life balance, career progression, imposter syndrome, interview prep, communication and more!

I’m so excited to give back as a mentor and become a support system as you grow into your best self. Topics I can speak to include: interview prep, resumes, recovering from a layoff, career pivots, general career/life advice or simply being a listening ear. My goal for our BobaTalks is to help guide you toward defining and achieving what success looks like for you while having a great time along the way.

Hello! My name is Otto and I’m currently a Project Manager for the Recruiting org at Airbnb. I’ve spent my entire career navigating the non-technical side of the tech ecosystem, including ~6 years in the Recruiting space. Happy to help you map out a path to your own success (and crush every interview & offer negotiation along the way!).
