Jason Levin’s Background
In the summer of 1990, I was a rising sophomore in a Northern NJ high school. 1990 was economically challenging, and the beginning of 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 the job seeking process. As a teenager, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Yet, here we are 20+ years later and the subject of careers and growing people’s businesses is something that I put in the same category as time with my wife and son, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, and a relaxing day at the beach.
Outside of career coaching and outplacement, speaking engagements as well as retirement transitions with Ready Set Launch, LLC®, my professional background includes being a District Manager with Vault.com, where I sold recruiting and employer branding solutions to recruiters and hiring managers at AmLaw 100 law firms, Fortune 100 corporations, consultancies, accountancies, and federal agency employers to raise engagement and interaction of their online employer brand to Vault.com’s audience.
Prior to joining 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 category. I also was a business development manager for QS World Grad School promoting LLM and international relations programs globally, a management consultant for RSM Salustro Reydel Management (acquired by KPMG), and an analyst with Andersen Consulting (now Accenture).
My MBA is from the Georgetown McDonough School of Business (see my career spotlight in the Georgetown Alumni Magazine). While studying at Georgetown, I worked overseas on brand management projects for Unilever Sri Lanka and Pepsi Vietnam. Additionally, I was a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar and received an international business degree (DEUF) from Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3. While living in Paris, France, I was the President of the Rotary Foundation Alumni Association (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. From 2009-2012, 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 the United Way NCA.
Most importantly, I am married to a lovely red-head and we have two adorable red-headed boys who run the house.
