Founder, Modern Career Advice


Frank Song is a nationally recognized speaker and expert in landing top-tier job offers. His expertise is based on his personal successes in winning offers for the most coveted roles against the world’s strongest candidates.


Since founding Modern Career Advice, Frank has taken working professionals who were once stuck in jobs where they were underpaid, intellectually unstimulated, and at companies with no career growth potential – to landing job offers for roles, pay packages, and from companies they thought were otherwise out of reach. He has accomplished these results by utilizing a data-driven, scientific, and logical approach to landing high quality offers.


Prior to founding Modern Career Advice, Frank was a Private Equity Investor at Accel-KKR, one of the only private equity firms, with $2.3 billion under management, dedicated exclusively to pursuing buyouts and structured investments in technology companies.


Prior to joining Accel-KKR, Frank was an Investment Banker at Stifel Nicolaus Weisel, where he executed mergers and acquisitions, initial public offerings, and leverage buyout transactions.


Additionally, Frank worked at Kayne Anderson, a $30 billion alternative asset manager (co-founded by John Anderson for whom the UCLA Anderson School of Management is named after) where he focused on structuring private equity investments with founders and CEOs of growing private companies.


Frank graduated from the University of California, Davis with a B.A. in Economics. While attending UC Davis, Frank fully funded his education by specializing in sourcing and executing distressed real estate investments. Frank has held the following licenses: Series 7, California Real Estate Broker’s License, California Life and Disability Insurance License.
