I played football at Union College and graduated in 2013. After several years in the workforce, I decided to get an MBA. Jason Levin proved to be a truly invaluable resource during my career transition. He leveraged his years of career coaching experience to create a clear and actionable strategy that would go on to define my career path. From exploring potential career fields to developing a comprehensive game plan, to extensively preparing for final interviews, Jason proved to be an exceptional mentor and coach. He helped integrate my student-athlete story into my professional story. I credit much of my success today to his methods and guidance. I would recommend Jason's services to anyone who wishes to further their professional career.
