Early Stage Careers, LLC


Many students and recent college grads lack the tools, focus and job readiness skills that today’s employers demand. Our firm works directly with students, recent grads and millennials in transition, providing Internship Coaching and Cultivation and Career Launch Services. Our multi-stage process consists of 4 phases designed to build confidence and career direction/skills, as well as help our clients emphasize their value. Specifically, our comprehensive process includes:
• Creating Social Media Tools (including Resume, LinkedIn, and other personal branding strategies)
• In-depth Networking and Interviewing Strategies
• Effective techniques in researching/applying for internships and jobs (including customized cover letters/resumes)
• Negotiating Offers and Securing the Job
• Ongoing support and advocacy

We work with clients, both domestically and internationally, across a broad range of majors and diverse areas of interest to identify appropriate job opportunities based on their skills and qualifications. Our strategic advice, expertise and deep understanding of the employment landscape have led to our clients receiving exciting offers from their top choice employers.

Priority Candidates, Inc

President and Founder

Priority Candidates, Inc. prepares college/post college students to get hired for that post graduation job. We are specialists in the business of hiring preparation and acceleration, strictly focused on college/graduate school students as well as recent graduates.

We employ a distinctly different approach and proprietary system to prepare our student-clients. We leverage 25-plus years of experience in knowing what Corporate America looks for in entry-level hires — having screened and recruited literally thousands of candidates for hundreds of small, medium and large-sized companies.

Today, our full service program represents the most in-depth, tailored, personalized and hands-on counseling service — via face-to-face, phone and internet. It is exclusively focused on preparing matriculating students to be at the top of employers’ priority candidate lists and to be the ones who get hired for those highly competitive entry-level jobs.

Unlike others, our business is not a sideline of a “career planning” business for corporate employees with experience. Preparing college/graduate students and recent graduates to get hired is our ONLY business.
