    Lauren McGoodwin founded Career Contessa in 2013 after experiencing a gap in career development resources for women. McGoodwin was formerly a university recruiter for Hulu focused on hiring, employer branding, and program management. She has a bachelor’s in education from the University of Oregon and a master’s in communication management from the University of Southern California, where she wrote her thesis on millennials and career resources. In 2018, McGoodwin and the Career Contessa team launched The Salary Project, a free, anonymous salary database that helps women know if they are being paid fairly.
