Meet Coach Jena B!

Every day, I work to help individuals become better professionals

and employers become better places to work.

I started my journey in 2008 when the job market crashed. Everything was uncertain. The career aspirations I had needed to be replaced with practicality. I was 19 when I got my first job in corporate America. I was simultaneously finishing my degree in Television Radio Film at Syracuse University’s  S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. I invested in a top school to go after my dreams. Where did I end up? Spiralling in a job search process that I was unsure how to navigate. I learned a valuable lesson about being clear about my future. After came numerous careers, that included catering sales, gym manager, and temp. I finally found University Relations. I had no idea there was a place within companies and colleges that teamed to help students get jobs! This was my calling. I was meant to help others alleviate the pain I went through trying to find my purpose. After working as a campus recruiter for a Fortune 500, a technology start up, a Big 4 Public Accounting firm and ending in financial services, I formed Coach Jena B. LLC.

I work with colleges, employers and early career talent to prepare for the changing workforce ahead. Collectively we can form a future workforce that is inclusive, progressive and powerful.
