LAUNCH

Career Consulting

Early Career Launch professionals help students and young adults be successful in their first several career moves — from internships to landing their “first job” and through early career changes.

About Us

Mary Bloomer founded Early Career Launch in 2010, drawing upon her experiences working in the Career Development office at the Yale School of Management and after a long career in investment banking. Since it's founding, we have successfully helped hundreds of clients find exciting internships and jobs. Our clients come to us with wide ranging experiences, academic backgrounds, and levels of understanding and focus on their career goals.  We guide and prepare them to find opportunities suited to their talents, skills and interests. 

 

Career Advisory Services

We begin our work together with a new client with a complimentary 30 minute phone conversation.  During this conversation, we will talk about your past work and academic experiences, your skills and interests, and your career objectives going forward.  

 

Many clients are at the beginning stages of exploring possible career paths and come to us to build an understanding of varied industries and roles, develop a comprehensive search process and market themselves most effectively.  Others are very focused on a particular path and work with us to most effectively obtain an offer in industries and roles.  Because of our varied clients, our work with each is highly tailored to best meet individual needs.

Services Include: 

  • Professional skills and interests assessments

  • Career exploration, research, and targeting

  • Structuring an achievable step by step job/internship search plan

  • Impactful resumes, cover letters, LinkedIn and online presence, correspondence, and other marketing materials

  • Ongoing sourcing and identifying specific job/internship opportunities

  • Networking skills and tactics

  • Interview preparation, including extensive mock interviews

  • Offer assessment and negotiation

  • Onboarding tips

Landing a great job or internship requires effectiveness in each of the above. While time spent with each client in these areas varies depending on their needs, we dedicate our efforts to ensuring every client has the knowledge and skills to achieve success in their job search.

The Launch

 

This plan best suits current students, at an early stage of career exploration.  It comprises a package of 20 Sessions (either in person, phone, or video conversation) thoroughly covering all of the critical services detailed above. Often students who have never done a comprehensive internship or job search before and have had little experience and exposure to structuring a career search process.

In Flight

Cruising Altitude

 

This plan is designed for students and recent graduates who have well-developed career interests; have held professional positions; and/or have had experience targeting positions, interviewing, and selling themselves. It is a package of 8 Sessions focused on the client’s defined search goals, addressing services as needed above.
