$89 for a Career Mentoring Package ($298 Value)
- One-hour resumé-critique session via phone
- One-hour job-search strategy session via phone
Job searchers begin by uploading their resumé and filling out a form on Blue Chip's website to match them with a mentor—ideally, one who works in their desired corner of the corporate world and shares their philosophies about building a mentoring relationship. Blue Chip contacts customers within 24 hours to recommend a mentor, and works with customers to make sure the match is a good fit. Once a match is made, a mentor will reach out to set up two sessions: the first to fine-tune the resumé, the second to map out a step-by-step job-search and networking plan.
Blue Chip Career
After several of his friends lost their jobs in the financial-services industry, Chris Carey saw how vulnerable even workers toward the top of the corporate ladder can be. He established Blue Chip Career to help support these employees, coordinating more than 150 mentors sourced from across the fields of investing, accounting, consulting, and start-ups to lead clients through the job-search process. Through services including resumé reviews and mock interviews, mentors and job searchers work in tandem to develop strategies for salary negotiation, getting a promotion, and tackling weaknesses such as poor time management or getting sucked into long gossip sessions with the water cooler.
