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.
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. 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. Our clients come to us with wide ranging experiences, academic backgrounds, and levels of understanding and focus as to their career goals and the opportunities suited to their interests.
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 on how to most effectively obtain an offer in targeted roles. Because of our varied clients, our work with each is highly tailored to best meet individual needs.
