Karen Lin

Career Counselor
Haas School of Business

“I have been in the field of student development for 10+ years. As a previous consultant, I worked with investment bankers, management consultants and other high performing business professionals to explore their career advancement and helped them in the process of applying to top MBA programs in the U.S. Then I transferred my coaching skills to higher education and worked in academic advising, executive education, and eventually career development. At Cal, my goal is to empower Haas students to think beyond the first post-college job and pursue their long term career success.”

David Woodward

Career Counselor
College of Letters & Science & Haas School of Business

“I view life as a voyage of discovery about myself and the universe around me and I encourage everyone to pursue their own journey of development too. I have a passion and aptitude for developing communicating power in my clients and students – executives, entrepreneurs or engineers, pitching for funding, chasing new business or seeking a new role. Outside work I enjoy hiking, preferably steep and high like Kilimanjaro and Aconcagua. Less extreme and more accessible hikes include Mount Diablo and Mission Peak.”
