If you don’t have a plan, you…
Many students don’t understand their career options or the skills and experience required for those jobs. They accept the first job offered which can be a poor choice. This can lead to the feared quarter-life crisis.
We don’t want that for you.
We ensure you present yourself as a strong and viable candidate. We meet with you weekly, guide you through your applications, phone screenings, interviews and case studies.
There are three phases to our stategic job search process.
Priority Candidates works exclusively with college students and recent graduates.
“We will do whatever we need to do to get you where you want to be. We treat your job search as if it is our own.” — Lesley Mitler
In 2009, after more than 20 years as a successful executive search consultant, I founded Priority Candidates and shifted my focus to helping college students and recent graduates transition into their careers. Having so much experience placing senior level executives, I was uniquely poised to advise younger clients on how to look at their career in the long term.
In 2015, I co-founded Early Stage Careers, and built a team of professionals specializing in career coaching for college students and recent graduates. In 2022, we rebranded as Priority Candidates.
“Thank you for helping me find exactly what I was looking for.”
