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 early career advising experience, coupled with a deep understanding of the broad range of opportunities and potential paths for current students and recent graduates, position us to add significant value to our clients’ career planning and to achieve success in their search processes.
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 very beginning stages of thinking about possible career paths and come to us to help them build an understanding of varied industries and roles, as well as to develop and guide them through a search process and how to market themselves. Others are very focused on a particular position and work with us on how to most effectively obtain an offer at that targeted role. Because of our varied clients, our work with each is highly tailored to best meet their needs.
