Hi, I'm Julia Rock!

I am the Founder and CEO of Rock Career Development. I started my boutique career services firm in Houston, Texas in 2013 after seeing the need in my community for career mentorship.

I’ve been working in Finance and helping others achieve their career goals since 2007 and I’m passionate about increasing Black and POC leadership in the workforce. Especially since Black people are 12% of the US population but only 3.2% of senior leadership roles in corporations. And this is NOT because we are less skilled or talented.

I’m no HR professional. I’m someone who has climbed the corporate ladder, been in in recruiting, made hiring decisions, and I’ve seen what works before AND after you get the job. 

In my career, I’ve seen too many talented people be blocked from their success simply because they were kept ignorant and lacked support.

I want to give you and your organization the knowledge and tools needed to truly succeed.
