About The Founder
Career Coach Ryan Kahn is a known expert in his field, author, speaker and television personality. Kahn’s constructively candid and insightful coaching style and his close working relationships with industry leaders have made him a go-to career resource. Kahn’s work has helped hundreds of thousands of job seekers and he has been praised in hundreds of media outlets including The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Huffington Post, Star Magazine, Forbes, Washington Post, NBC News, Business Insider, Chicago Tribune, Mashable, and US News & World Report.
A Southern California native hailing from Newport Coast, Kahn graduated from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. He continued his education with a focus degree in Music Business from UCLA’s Entertainment Studies program. While attending UCLA, Kahn interned for such entertainment powerhouses as The Firm, DC Management, and the Warner Music Group, where he was ultimately hired to work with some of music’s greats.
Kahn’s unique success in garnering internships and passion for helping others ultimately led him to guest lecturing at UCLA on the topic of “How to Break into the Entertainment Business.” In his free time, Kahn also advised young professionals and utilized his extensive network to help them secure jobs.
In 2006, Kahn left the music industry and dedicated himself full-time as a career coach. Since then, Kahn has placed over 2,000 professionals in highly-coveted internships and jobs and embarked on nationwide speaking tours to help place others on the path to success.
In 2010, MTV featured Kahn in a starring role as expert career coach of the internationally-aired, 20 episode docu-series HIRED! The following year, Kahn published HIRED! The Guide for the Recent Grad and most recently his online course How To Get Hired.
As an avid music fan, Ryan spends his free time playing bass in a Los Angeles based band, The Night Riders which has headlined on Hollywood’s world famous Sunset Strip. And, to help support and inspire the next generation of musicians, he founded Rock Start, a charity that donates musical instruments to children in need.
