"I've known Eli since 2005. From day one, I noticed a few key things about him. He is an excellent listener, with a true care for the human soul - when he looks you in the eye as you speak to him, you can truly see the words and thoughts being absorbed into his brain; he is also extremely smart and passionate about business and world culture - a pair of life's aspects that with the right advice will give anyone the upper hand in success; finally, he is a man with a good heart and upholds excellent character - making him a trusted confidant. These core traits are the reason why we are best friends. He has helped me through many professional and life situations, and I am confident he will help you too."

"Eli has helped me figure out my value as an artist, which more often than not can be very difficult. He organized a budget to help me supplement the materials I needed to get my freelance work ready for my clients. He also helped me create a resume that truly highlighted my skills and assets. I wouldn't have been able to do what I truly love as a livelihood without his help and guidance."

"Before working with Eli I was the girl who bit her nails at the end of the month hoping there would be enough money left in her bank account for bills after buying $6 lattes all month long. My concept of a savings account was keeping the change leftover from those Starbucks trips in a jar in my bedroom. Not exactly a diverse investment portfolio to say the least. After Eli became aware of my lack of financial know-how he posed a few question in terms that my twenty-something mind could understand. If this description sounds like someone that you may know, please intervene on their behalf and refer them to Eli Bohemond. He helped me to understand the real value of my money and taught me to allocate it with purpose and precision. Thanks to Eli not only do I rest assured knowing that I can meet my monthly expenses, but I feel empowered as a financially independent woman who can not just survive but thrive!"

"Eli Bohemond is a fantastic person and mentor. Although exceptionally intelligent, he does not hold himself above others in conversation. He has been a mentor to me through the college application process and the advice that he has given me has proved indispensable. While working with Eli, I felt that he was truly focused on what was important to me and he helped me to better understand my passions and provided real world scenarios while trying to determine an appropriate major selection."
-- Paul Delvecchio,
"Eli played a critical role in helping me obtain my current position. I reached out to Eli because I needed help with my resume and cover letter. He enhanced my chances of being selected by teaching me how to cater my resume to each job description. He was persistent in making sure that I maintained a professional demeanor both in-person and on paper. He also coached me through various situations and questions that helped me own my interviews. In the end, I secured a good job and I couldn't have done it without Eli's help."
-- Hailie DiMenna,
"When I first spoke with Eli, I only wanted to work on finding a career that was in line with my passions. Through the process I started to realize that the patterns of behavior that affected my professional life were the exact same patterns that affected my personal life. I have always been the type of person that was quick to accept a new opportunity, which didn't always turn out to be the best move for me. Now, I actually take a step back to consider all of my options before making an important decision, not only in the workplace, but in all the other areas of my life. My relationships and connections with people around me have grown exponentially and I cannot thank Eli enough for his wonderful insight and support!"
Making money is a goal that we all share and serves as the primary reason why most people work. Once you begin generating an income it is important that you understand how much of it is going into your bank account versus the average day-to-day expenses that you plan to incur.
I will help you to fully understand your financial situation and work with you to build a budget that highlights your revenue streams and expenses so there are no financial surprises on a monthly basis. There are many tips and tricks I will share with you that have helped me save money, travel with minimal out-of-pocket expenses, establish strong credit, and earn rewards with the money I spend.
If you are looking for someone to provide stock tips and investment advice, then you’ve come to the wrong place. Instead, I will teach you how to manage the money you earn and use it to live the life you desire.

People will always remember the bad things you did and always forget the good things you've done. It is an unfortunate reality of life that mistakes are often found to be more memorable than successes.
This makes managing a reputation very challenging and your reputation is everything. It guides people’s perception of you and impacts the way your peers and colleagues interact with you. We are only human and it is inevitable that we will make mistakes in our lives, but it is the way that you handle yourself when you make an error, the way that you openly receive criticism, and your ability to remain tactful that will preserve the essence of your reputation.
I personally used to have a very big ego and through life experiences I realized that being proud fed my negativity and repressed my positivity. I will work with you to understand what triggers your own personal reactions, I will show you how to improve your social media presence, and I will help you to assess the potential consequences of your actions.

Resumes & Cover Letters
How do you find the most suitable job for you in an ideal location with the salary that you need to achieve a comfortable lifestyle? By navigating through the vast expanse of the Internet. There are countless resources one can use to find a job online, but there are effective means of conducting research for jobs on the World Wide Web and there is time lost in virtual no mans land. I will help you eliminate time wasted, I will have employers reaching out to you directly, and I will teach you how to gain access to hiring managers who are the decision makers for your dream job.
Once you’ve conducted your research, revised your resume and cover letter, and submitted your application for employment, you wait. If all goes well, you’ll often hear back from the company recruiter to schedule an initial phone screening. If you pass the initial phone screen, you will be asked to schedule either a phone interview or an in-person interview with the decision maker(s). If you have a successful interview, they will get back to you in a reasonable time frame and either ask you to come in so other individuals have the opportunity to get to know you, or you will be given an offer of employment.
Sound easy enough? Easier said then done. It is hard enough to sell yourself to an employer on a piece of paper, but the real test comes when you are asked to show up in person and sit in the hot seat. I will work with you to build your confidence during interviews, provide tips and tricks around what recruiters look for during interviews, teach you how to capture a recruiter's attention over the phone, and coach you on best practices of successful interviewees through professional mock interviews.

Job Research & Interview Preparation
Life is too short to be wasted with mundane time consuming activities like clicking through old e-mails, searching for misplaced items, or flip-flopping between multiple tasks with no methodology. If you are constantly overwhelmed and feel as if you accomplish less than you’d like on a regular basis then let’s work together to assess the current state of your daily routine and come up with effective and efficient solutions.
Time management and organization are two key traits that most employers look for in a successful candidate. They are also the key elements responsible for driving individuals to complete tasks and progress both in their personal and professional lives. I want to help simplify your life and show you how to take control of your schedule.
I will teach you techniques on how to prioritize your daily goals, organize your emails and files, manage your time more efficiently, and achieve peace of mind.

Time Management & Organization
Making the decision to continue your education and focus on a major that both interests you and provides future value to you is empowering. College is an important rung on your ladder, but it is important to make sure that your ladder is leaning against the right building. That is to say… make sure that you are climbing and working toward the right goal for you. It happens so often that students make a hasty or uninformed decision regarding their choice of major that an estimated 75% of undergraduate students elect to change their majors at least once in college. When making decisions independently or based on the opinions of those with whom they have a personal relationship, such as family members, students will most likely make an ineffective decision that is not aligned with their true personal goals, interests, and values.
Acting as your mentor, I will listen to you and guide you in a direction based on your interests. Personality tests and career assessments are a great way for students to practice self-reflection and gain a deeper understanding of the career options available to them based on their motivators. I will use leading practice tools such as the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator to measure how you perceive life and make decisions, and the Holland Occupational Themes to assess vocational choices based on your personality.
We can research the best schooling options for you based on your budget, desired vocation, and the acceptance requirements of the university. I will provide peer review for college applications and once accepted, provide continued support to teach you how to take advantage of the academic resources provided by your university.

Advice for Students
These interviews were conducted by Candid Career in conjunction with The Penn State University Smeal College of Business. Please feel free to check out more videos here.
I am a graduate of the Smeal College of Business at Penn State University. Holding a dual major (B.S. of Accounting and B.S. in International Studies) and dual minor (International Business and French), I began my career in management consulting in Washington D.C. After working in professional services for four years and helping my clients effectively improve their business decisions, I realized that my happiness stemmed from bringing value directly to the lives of others. My fondest memories at work included coaching and mentoring my peers, attending campus recruiting trips, giving in-class presentations and conducting interviews. In my free time I found myself assisting friends, colleagues, and students edit their resumes, write cover letters, and manage their finances. I heard the excitement in their voices when they'd tell me about their upcoming interview, their new job offer, or how they finally had enough money saved to take that dream vacation. I wanted to make this my career and I will stop at nothing to help my clients achieve their goals.
"Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work that you believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours."
“Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity”
“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I... I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference ”
