–Paso Robles native Kyle Elliott was recently named a LinkedIn Top Voice 2019 by LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network.
Elliott grew up in Paso Robles and graduated from Paso Robles High School in 2010. Following high school, he attended San Francisco State University, the University of Washington, and is now completing a doctorate in education with the University of North Dakota. He now lives in Benicia, Calif.
“Two-and-half years ago, I left my full-time job to run my career and life coaching business, CaffeinatedKyle.com, full-time. I primarily work with managers and executives in Silicon Valley to find careers in high tech, ” Elliot says. “I also speak around the country on professional development, social justice, and mental health.”
LinkedIn Top Voice is the social media platform’s highest honor with just 10 of LinkedIn’s 660+ million global users receiving the award for job search and careers.
According to Daniel Roth, Editor in Chief of LinkedIn, “These are people who use every tool available to them on LinkedIn — articles, posts, videos and comments — to give and get help around topics in which they’re experts… If you want to stay inspired and informed, these are the people you should be following.”
“I started my business on Fiverr charging just five dollars for resumes reviews and LinkedIn profile summaries,” shares Elliott. “I never imagined what started as a college side hustle would turn into a thriving coaching practice working with some of Silicon Valley’s most prominent tech executives.”
As a career coach, Elliott works with top talent at Fortune 100/500 companies like Facebook, LinkedIn, Amazon, Google, and Microsoft. He also speaks around the country on topics related to professional development, mental health, and/or social justice.
“I am proud that I get to use my platform to bring attention to topics we don’t talk enough about — like unemployment, mental illness, and queer love. This is how we cure stigma” Elliott added.
