Why Advice for The New Careerist?
I designed Advice for the New Careerist to help professionals in the early stages of their careers. The advice reflects insights from my 20 years of business experience with an overriding theme of self-advocacy. Maybe it’s because I have three teenagers, but I really want to make sure young professionals position themselves correctly to maximize their careers.
I started my career on Wall Street after graduating from Smith College, then took a break to earn an MBA at Dartmouth’s Tuck School. After Tuck I spent ten years at Merrill Lynch & Co. where I was among the first female Managing Directors in the investment banking division. At Merrill, I managed the Real Estate Private Equity Placement business and was a member of the firm’s first Women’s Steering Committee. I now run an advisory business www.summitequityadvisors.com which offers private equity placement services to corporate clients.
