Executives Mentor Job Seekers in the Spirit of the Holidays
WASHINGTON, Dec. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The holidays are a time to enjoy the company of friends and family. They also provide an opportunity to forge new professional relationships — to network and build a foundation for career success in the New Year.
Indeed, the next several weeks offer a perfect opportunity to refine one’s career goals with the help of others. Discussions with friends and family can be valuable, but job search strategies are best developed with the help of industry experts. Now, thanks to Blue Chip Career, these experts are readily available.
The company’s mentor network includes managing directors at bulge-bracket investment banks, successful entrepreneurs and venture capital investors, team leaders at top consulting firms and senior private equity and hedge fund investors. These Blue Chip Career mentors enjoy sharing their expertise to help professionals interested in their field.
“Early in my career, there were executives whom I turned to for guidance and counsel. Those mentoring relationships were almost as influential on my career path as my education and other items on my resume,” said mentor Enoch Minn, an accomplished consultant and former Goldman Sachs banker. “As a result, I see the power and value of open, honest and objective mentoring — and I enjoy helping like-minded aspirational individuals achieve their goals.”
Blue Chip Career’s mentors know what it takes to be successful. And they are excited to share their knowledge with professionals of all ages — from college students to senior-level executives — because they know just how valuable having a mentor can be.
“I wish I had a resource like Blue Chip Career earlier in my career,” noted mentor Charlie Trisiripisal, a Partner at a New York hedge fund, which he co-founded. “Talking to someone with life experience is 10 times better than what a book will teach you about the interview process or breaking into a specific industry.”
Blue Chip Career’s mission — to make quality, industry-specific career advice available to all, regardless of school affiliation — is particularly apropos in today’s career-services market, where people with degrees from elite universities tend to have the upper hand.
“The amount of support and knowledge I got from Enoch was not only impactful but inspiring,” Tad — a client from a small Midwestern college — said of his relationship with Enoch Minn. “He was genuinely focused on helping me break into consulting.”
Tad’s experience is typical: Blue Chip Career’s mentors are genuinely committed to and concerned about the people they work with. At the holidays and year-round, Blue Chip Career builds mentor/mentee relationships — and helps clients get where they want to be in their careers.
