"We booked Titilayo to speak to our students and alumni because we wanted a young, dynamic speaker who could present a fresh perspective on career goal setting and job searching to our students and recent grads. I really liked Titilayo’s message about taking responsibility for defining success on your own terms and creating your own opportunities. Titilayo packaged and presented some important messages together in a way that really resonated with our attendees. Plus her own story is inspiring, and gives the audience a sense of how this could really work in their own lives. Before, during, and after the event, every aspect of our interaction with Titilayo was easy, enjoyable, and professional.”

–J. Alison Morris, J.D., Alumni Relations Officer at Mitchell Hamline School of Law

“Titilayo's Go-Getter's Manifesto for Law Students has all the passion, vigor, and action of Steve Jobs’ graduation speech. You are so dedicated in inspiring attorneys to not just have a job but have or create a job you love. Thank you for being a credit and catalyst to change in our community!"   

–Su Dalal, Founder of FindMyLawTutor.com

 Titilayo's story and her career tips were right on, and refreshingly optimistic. The most impactful part of the event was the opportunity for personal reflection."

- Andrew Lehner
Assistant Director, Career and Professional Development
Mitchell Hamline School of Law

“Before hearing Titilayo speak, my outlook was simply: complete nerves and little choice. The most impactful part of Titilayo's talk was the exercise that got me thinking about my skills and strengths. Striving forward into the next chapter of my career, I feel like I have more direction and control.” 

–A.M., Law Student

“You have a passion AND the talent for seeing 1Ls succeed and get firm jobs.  Every presentation, especially that last one regarding on-campus interviews, was extremely clear and very helpful. After attending the presentations, I felt less anxious and more ready to conquer interviews.”

–L.L. (landed 1L firm job at an AmLaw 100 firm)

“ABSOLUTELY take Titilayo’s advice. She’s amazing! She is so willing to share how she makes things happen in her life.”

–A.T. (landed highly competitive law firm / in-house summer placement)

“You are a wealth of knowledge and expertise with a good head on your shoulders. You are filled with generosity and have the willingness to help. Thank you for everything.”

–S.T. (spent 1L summer clerking for a federal judge)

“Titilayo, thank you so much for this awesome, concise, encouraging career book! I just read your Manifesto and am so impressed that I’ll be recommending it far and wide to all the prelaw students and law school school applicants that I meet. It’s also very applicable to anyone looking for a job or making a career change so I’ll be sending non-lawyers to your site to get a copy too.

I hope people will read the Manifesto once, twice, three times to really absorb what you’re saying and take action on the four steps that you recommend. I love how you are both hard-hitting and very encouraging at the same time. Great job and thanks again.”
