About Misha Rubin (for real)

Hello I'm Misha.

And I know the feeling.

...Because I worked so many hours, that even when I slept it seemed I was still at work.

Because when my 3-month paternal leave was over, I was terrified to go back to work.

Because I was laid off.

Because I was the parent who worked from home during COVID while juggling logging in my three kids into 3 different virtual classes.

Because I experienced feeling desperately stuck and couldn't bare going to the office.

...Because as a "boss" I supported my people trough death of a parent, birth of a child, spousal turmoil, mental illness, physical disability, difficult client, you name it...

I also guided hundreds of talented successful professionals in their career development. So I've seen the ins and the outs of being making tough decision, feeling stuck and unfulfilled, wanting to get to the next level but not knowing how, questioning oneself...

So several years ago I decided  to leave my corporate career and dedicate myself to helping professionals like you thrive at their jobs. That's why I developed The Career Leap.

My life is big, busy and messy. And I like it that way, because it is about change, growth and learning. Apart from my business, my kids (9-year old twin girls and a 12-year old boy) really keep me on my toes. I'm also settling into a new role as a founder and an executive of a non-profit organization I recently started in Ukraine.

Oh... almost forgot. On top of everything, we we recently adopted a bernedoodle puppy. So now I'm learning the ropes of being a pet-dad.

Featured Interview with Misha Rubin

From confusion to clarity
Ina G., PA, Data Science
Pandemic reshuffled a mix of my personal circumstances and priorities.  The Career Leap framework allowed to fit early open-ended exploration within a more structured approach and a sense of path, avoiding "analysis paralysis."

Misha has an exceptional ability at framing and formulating complex, fuzzy and unstructured matters. I wanted to thank Misha for all his help, facilitating exploration and revealing blind spots.
