Credentials Highlight

Dartmouth Tuck Executive Director of Career Services & Wharton-Lauder Alum

"I credit Jonathan’s coaching with playing an important role in helping me arrive at my dream job as an investor. He advised me to turn down an MBA summer internship offer and then helped me find the right one for me that led to where I am today."

Former Executive Director of Career Services at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth, Jonathan led the career services office as part of Tuck’s leadership and provided career coaching to MBAs for 14 years including managing investment banking, private equity, technology, health care, energy, and entrepreneurship. He and his career services team collaborated with Tuck admissions by providing the career perspective to evaluate MBA applicants.

Jonathan started his coaching career as a collegiate squash coach at his alma mater Harvard University where he had been co-captain and National Champion, before working as an investment banker and completing the dual degree Wharton MBA and Lauder Institute program. Prior to joining Tuck, Jonathan helped launch a venture-backed fintech business in San Francisco, completed health care M&A transactions as an investment banker, and lived in Mexico where he met his wife and got married.

“Jonathan gave me great advice on not only Tuck, the school he worked with, but also on Stern, which I’m more than happy to have received admission into. Thanks to Jonathan for always going out of his way to help me out whenever I was in doubt about my applications. I couldn’t have done this without him!” 


Q & A

What's your coaching superpower?

My coaching superpower is the career perspective that I bring from helping many hundreds of MBAs get their dream jobs. Based on an applicant’s background and career goals, I can provide insight into the right MBA program and help them craft a compelling narrative for why an MBA, and then how the MBA will help the applicant reach professional objectives.

Why are you passionate about coaching?

I love helping people reach challenging and meaningful milestones – it is personally gratifying and fun to be a part of as a coach. I also really enjoy listening to personal stories and learning about the motivations and aspirations of my clients and knowing that I’ve played a role in their success.

What’s your top piece of advice for admissions candidates?

A mantra I use when making important decisions in life is ‘measure twice, cut once,’ a saying that applies to choosing the right MBA program. While goals and plans often change once classes begins, the more effort committed to choosing the right program, the more successful is the MBA academic, career, and social experience.
