Career Specialist at CareerFoundry & Career Coach

Jeffrey's career started reading books. When he realized his fascination with teaching and medieval history was less related to the academic setting and more to the joy of learning the stories of others, he entered the working world of NYC and found opportunity to meet more people across various industries. He worked as a caterer, film intern, tutor, Ops Specialist, and UX/Product Recruiter before moving to France in Jan 2020 with wife & daughter to expand his network further! (That's right: he wanted to learn more the stories of other people and help them on their way.) With previous work scaling several Mentorship Groups, co-organizing 20+ events, and volunteering in support of multiple non-profits, he has felt tangibly the benefits of investing in community. Now a career specialist at CareerFoundry, Jeffrey enjoys empowering others every day and looks forward to sharing with you "networking" tactics & strategies that can help you get where you want to go and maybe make some friends along the way too.
