Episode 52: How to Land Your Dream Customer Success Job – Kat Fisher

Are you looking to land your dream Customer Success job? 
What to do, what to avoid and how to approach your job search?

Kat Fisher is a Senior Customer Success Manager at Signifyd, and she’s an expert in hiring – having spent time looking for her next job last year, and then, spending a bigger part of this year hiring, Kat knows the industry inside out and I’m grateful she is sharing her tips with us today. If you are on the look for your next play, or next CSM – this is the episode for you!

One of my main learnings about job search from Kat is her take on CVs: ‘CV is your main marketing asset for yourself. That is your presentation. It needs to tell the story of your achievement rather than your duties.’

Company research:
