Trumbull, CT (PRWEB) March 26, 2013
In being an adjunct professor and mentor to students since 2012, Andrew Blum has seen that education alone isn’t enough to create a job opportunity for students in today’s economy and ultra-competitive job market. He now plans to provide career counseling outside of the classroom to this year’s graduates, in hopes of helping these students find jobs after attaining degrees.
Blum will apply his diverse career path and unique skill set to help graduates map a career path through goal setting and skill-gap assessments. Andrew is dedicating his free time to helping the next generation succeed; in addition to this service he began teaching classes last year as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Connecticut.
When asked about providing career counseling Blum exclaimed, “This is something that I really enjoy! The graduates usually surprise me with the intelligent questions they ask and most of them already have a plan in place. But I take each student through a process that I developed and we are able to quickly develop together an action plan for each student to follow.”
Blum is known to be a long time mentor to his direct-reports, some of whom are now running their own businesses. Others have become Vice Presidents at large organizations and others, “Hired Guns” following in the footsteps of their mentor.
Andrew Blum is a marketer and adjunct professor at University of Connecticut, living in Trumbull, CT. He has 15 years of experience in consumer research and marketing strategy. He can be contacted through his website for career counseling assistance.
