Top 4 Tips for Women to Reach Their Career Goals

Posted by Joanne Flynn on 2/5/19 10:00 AM

There are some industries where leadership is still predominantly comprised of men. This doesn’t always mean it’s harder for women to advance, but you need to be proactive when you decide to seek new prospects. Of course, this is good advice even if you aren’t in a male-dominated field. If you’re ready to take charge of your life and start moving forward — whether you’re going for a promotion, making a career switch, or even starting your own business — use these tips to make that next step a reality.

Tip #1 - Market Yourself Wisely

  • Create Your Personal Brand: When you start your own business, part of the planning stage is developing your brand. Having a brand is no longer limited to business owners, though. You want to create a personal brand so potential employers know who you are and what you can offer. According to Northeastern University, the key to building your personal brand is to define who you are as a professional. Ask yourself what your best skills are, which projects motivate you, and where you expect to go in the future.
  • Tailor Your Online Reputation: Your personal brand is primarily created through your online presence. Start crafting that presence by being active in online communities in your field. Remember that your personal brand is impacted by your entire online presence too, not just the spaces where you engage professionally. Before applying for new jobs, it’s important to make sure your online reputation reflects a positive image because many employers use social media as a way to find out more about applicants. An easy way to develop a good online brand is to get the help of a reputation management company. Their job is to contract with writers who create a large quantity of online content for you, including blog posts, press releases, and articles, that demonstrate your volunteer work, awards, and other accomplishments.

Career Opportunity: Director of Portfolio Impact (Mid Atlantic)

Posted by Steve Flynn on 11/13/18 10:36 PM

Our client is currently seeking an experienced leader to join and manage its Portfolio Impact team, which is fully dedicated to supporting the venture capital firms and portfolio companies in which our client has directly or indirectly invested by facilitating mutually beneficial connections to potential customers, strategic partners, service providers, executive talent and investors. For this particular role, they are looking for someone to lead their Corporate Network initiative and accelerate its efforts in establishing and strengthening relationships with senior corporate executives such as CIOs, CTOs and Innovation leaders.

Primarily, this person would help these executives navigate the VC ecosystem by identifying and connecting them with the 120 VC firms and 6,000 underlying portfolio companies within our client’s network. Responsibilities would include defining the overarching strategy for the Corporate Network, attending and running networking events and executive briefings that connect their entrepreneurs and executives, and advising corporate innovation groups on market scans and other activities.

While this role must be based out of our client’s Maryland office, there will be discretion to travel as needed for meetings with executives, investors and portfolio companies. This person could potentially be based remotely, but spending a majority of most weeks in their Baltimore office is required. Our client is looking for the right person for the role and plan to tailor compensation and title to the individual.  

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT AN INVESTMENT ROLE AND THERE IS NO LONGER TERM PATH TO BECOMING AN INVESTOR WITHIN OUR CLIENT.
