Jamie Peretz, Founder

Jamie brings a highly nuanced understanding of today’s employment marketplace. Her background positions her to be able to help students present themselves in a highly competitive manner, both in communications and in person. A crucial part of this transformative process is the necessity of creating a compelling narrative that speaks to potential employers.

Jamie joined Westwood Partners in 2015 and continues to specialize in investment banking and private equity executive recruiting.  Jamie was previously a Managing Director at Korn Ferry. During her 15 years at Korn Ferry she also focused on the financial services arena. In addition, she recruited, trained, and mentored many junior team members and was noted for her expertise in helping professionals create narratives to re-focus their careers.

Prior to joining Korn Ferry, Jamie was an investment banker (Credit Suisse and JP Morgan) and an attorney (Pillsbury Winthrop). Throughout her career, Jamie has volunteered extensively to mentor students through New York’s Student Sponsor Partners as well as with other major national organizations.

Jamie's first job after college was as a Judicial Intern at the Supreme Court of the United States.

Clients Say...

2MyCareer was a key factor in helping me land a highly prized summer job on Wall Street. The firm, which is very prestigious, ran a competitive selection process. My background is unlike most candidates and needed some real explanation. Jamie worked with me to make sure that I could sell my background with lots of confidence and be selected for the job I wanted. On top of that, she gave me guidance on how I can position myself during the time I’m working to give me the best chance at turning a summer job into a full-time offer. All I can say is THANK YOU!

Jamie Peretz was an instrumental and wonderful mentor to my daughter as she navigated her to her first career. Jamie's multi-faceted background continues to be crucial in helping her quickly learn the do's and don'ts of a work environment where she works with MBAs, JDs etc. My daughter has benefitted so much from Jamie's simultaneous honesty and critical advice. Coming from a career in the fine arts, I am not equipped to help my daughter compete in the corporate world, and am so grateful to Jamie for her expert guidance and support.
