Jason Levin’s Background
In the summer of 1990, I was a rising high school sophomore in Randolph, New Jersey. 1990 was economically challenging, and this recession was not kind to my family. My father lost his job (the only one he ever had since graduating college), and it was a tough time for the household.
At that time, I made a promise to myself: I would love everything about my career and each transition along the way. As a teenager, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Yet, here I am 20+ years later and the subject of career and business coaching is something that genuinely fulfills my core professional interests. The career and business advancement services I provide are targeted to:
- Employers and professional associations
- Executives considering retirement
- Small business owners and solo-preneurs
- Professionals in career transition
These services, draw on my professional experiences including being a District Manager with Vault.com, where I managed a remote business development team that sold recruiting and employer branding solutions to talent acquisition, hiring and employer branding teams at AmLaw 100 law firms, Fortune 100 corporations, consultancies, accountancies, and federal agency employers.
Prior to Vault.com, I worked in brand management for Unilever on the Dove Global team (see my article in BusinessWeek) developing cross-regional innovations in the anti-aging skin category. I also was a business development manager for QS World MBA / World Grad School promoting MBA, LLM and international relations programs globally, a management consultant for RSM Salustro Reydel Management (now KPMG), and an analyst with Andersen Consulting (currently Accenture).
My MBA is from the Georgetown McDonough School of Business. While studying at Georgetown, my overseas work included brand management projects for Unilever Sri Lanka and Pepsi Vietnam. Additionally, I was a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar in France and received an international business degree (DEUF) from Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3. While living in Paris, I was the President of the Rotary Foundation Alumni Association France (the first non-French national to hold the position). I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and a minor in French from Rowan University.
Community engagement is important to me. I sat on the Board of Directors of the United Way of the National Capital Area (United Way NCA) and was the Chair of the Emerging Leaders Society of United Way NCA.
Most importantly, I live in Washington, DC, am married to a lovely red-head and we have two adorable red-headed sons.
