Jerry Lee is the co-founder and COO of Wonsulting, a company that teaches people the skills they need to go after their dream job. Jerry has a range of clients, from college students trying to land internships to seasoned professionals trying to make the next big step in their career. When he was a student at Babson College, he spent hundreds of hours applying to internships without getting a single offer. Then he cracked the code and became the first student at Babson to land an internship at Google. Jerry turned that internship into a full-time offer and  worked at Google for three years.  Eventually Jerry and Jonathan Javier, whose T4C episode you can listen to here, co-founded Wonsulting to try to level the playing field for students without connections or who need help putting together a great resume. Jerry graduated from Babson in 2017 with a B.S. in Business Management. You can follow him on Linkedin, where he has over 150,000 followers. Also check him out on Instagram and TikTok.
