Career JumpStart

Freshmen | Sophomores | Juniors | Seniors

It’s an advantage for students to establish the link between college and careers early and present themselves professionally. With a polished resume and an impressive LinkedIn profile, students feel confident connecting with professors, guest speakers, sorority and fraternity alumnae, and new friends to build relationships that can be of benefit for years to come. We develop a personalized career plan unique to each student with specific goals and milestones, identify skills employers want and how to attain them, create a foundation of professional career assets, and develop a target list of dream companies and job roles that can serve as a North Star for future academic, extracurricular and skill building decisions.

Let us help you with a plan.

“Lori helped me determine the career path that was the best for me. She educated me on the job search process so I was organized and could take the necessary steps to achieve my goals.  She was always available to talk and help me out with interview preparation and with everything else.  Lori was a huge help to me and put me in the right places for success.”

“Lori is amazing at what she does and has made the career search and everything that goes into it so easy. She guides you through every step in finding a job. She not only helped me build a killer resume and cover letter, but also helped me improve my email and interview skills. I couldn’t have landed my dream job in NYC without her. She is a joy to work with and I would recommend her to anyone!”

“Lori’s work is exceptional as she is highly communicative and incredibly knowledgeable about job searching techniques and tactics. She guided me towards several outlets and opportunities during my time as a client of hers that resulted in landing a job within my targeted timeframe. Additionally, she genuinely cares about each client’s success and well-being, making it a joy to work with her. I highly recommend Lori and Career Onward to any student, new graduate, or career-pivoting individual.”

“I was completely lost on where to start when looking for an internship that was outside of a college’s career fair. I’m so thankful I fell into the arms of Career Onward! They know all the ins and outs, and the dos and don’ts to help you feel confident, prepared, and professional throughout each step of this process. They understood exactly what I was looking for in an internship and gave me plenty of companies to look into, both large and small. The interview preparation allowed me to approach each interview with full confidence and gave me a platform that I will use as I start my professional life. The personal help they offer is unmatched and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire process, and I plan to use them again when job hunting.”

“Lori is absolutely excellent at what she does and accepts nothing but exceptional results for her clients. Since I worked with Lori from Indiana, we communicated via phone for the majority of the time. Despite our lack of face-to-face communication, I really felt like I got to know Lori on a personal level. She is extremely professional yet personable, which makes it easy for her clients to trust and confide in her regarding their professional concerns.  I would highly recommend Lori to any recent graduate who would benefit from guidance in their job search process.”

Emma P. - DePauw University

“Lori is a great personable and professional woman who helped me land a job in 6 weeks! Her passion and desire to help others achieve their goals is shown throughout her work. I was impressed with her ability to make me feel as if I was her most important client. I would be lost without her positivity and guidance throughout the job hunting experience. Lori was with me through the entire process from interview to job offer to phone calls on the first day of my new job. I now have skills that I will carry with me throughout my life. I had a great time getting to know her and would recommend her to any and all students and recent graduates.”

Katie H. - Texas State UniversityMajor: Communications

“Lori was extremely professional throughout the entire process. I learned so much from her and she is excellent at what she does! She was very effective in figuring out the best way to present myself on paper and in person, and she made me feel much more confident in myself. She’s extremely passionate about her work, and that’s what makes her a wonderful person to work with. She empowered me with the right tools to succeed and get the job!”

“The improvements Lori helped me make to my resume, LinkedIn, and interviewing style were enormous, but perhaps the most valuable attribute that Lori gave me was confidence going into the big interview. Between university studies and starting a career there is a “gap” that every student has to try to cross and it can be daunting. The lack of structure of the whole process caused me a lot of anxiety. Lori helped me close that gap by being a reliable source of information and giving structure to a process that previously lacked it. Without Lori, I don’t think I would be interning with Goldman Sachs this summer.”
