How can I get my foot back in the door into corporate America after leaving for over a year in NYC?


Christian Valencia Fresh Meadows, NY

I have a Bachelor's in Accounting and Information Systems and asset management experience with JP Morgan Chase (18 months) in the fixed income space, along with audit internship experience from reputable firms. I left JP Morgan to begin a home improvement business here in NYC. I've landed clients, negotiated contracts, developed and met schedules, among many other tasks. I want to pursue a career back in corporate America. I started my quest 100% to find my new career just over a month ago. So far I have had two interviews, one I did not get the position and the other I am waiting for follow-up interviews. I am seeking a fulfilling role either in Finance, Advisory or Project Management. Because of my experience I know that I will be at an entry level position. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
