THE FINK DEVELOPMENT PHILOSOPHY
Authenticity is a word that companies throw around a lot, but at Fink Development we define it. We believe that authenticity is the combination of your natural strengths, values, and interests and we care about helping you identify yours so that you can start living your authentic life.
THE CAREER ACCELERATOR METHOD
The Career Accelerator Method was developed from hundreds of conversations and realizing that clients wanted to have a deeper understanding of what the steps in their career process would look like. Our method ensures that clients have a clear structure to help them navigate all the way from clarity building through negotiating for the things they care about.

MEET THE FOUNDER
Jennifer Fink, the Founder and CEO of Fink Development, built a career in several of the leading business schools in the nation, researching organizational behavior with some of the top professors in the country, developing entrepreneurship curriculum, and teaching thousands of MBAs how to navigate their job search, communicate their stories, and grow their career.
Jenni has been "around the block" when it comes to all things business, and has 20 years of management experience helping organizations run more effectively. In 2011, she decided to apply that expertise to the career development process, to combat the devastating impact that the job search process can have on an individuals’ wellbeing, and to make the career transition process easier.
As the creator of the Career Accelerator Method, Jennifer helps individuals take control of their career development, and master the process of finding their authentic career path.
Career Development isn't a straight line with a destination point attached to it, it’s a continual journey of reflecting on where we are, what we're longing for, and what’s holding us back from achieving it.
Understand where you are and where you're going simplifies every single step in the career development process. This is why every individual who is considering a change, whether it’s transitioning to a new role, developing in a current role, or venturing off on their own, should have a solid grounding of clarity and confidence before making their next move.
If you’re ready to make a change but there is something holding you back, it’s time to reach out.
THE AUTHENTIC CAREER ACCELERATOR
The common day job search has evolved into a confusing, unintuitive, highly-nuanced process, that often leaves job seekers feeling invisible and broken. If this sounds like your experience, don’t worry, you’re not alone. We saw first hand how challenging this process can be after coaching hundreds of clients through it. And, then, we decided to change it.
This career transition program was created to ensure that job seekers had a clear, easy, and effective way to identify authentic career options, job search strategically, communicate with confidence, and negotiate for their worth.
If you've been sending applications into the abyss and you’re finally ready for a better approach, this program is for you. It’s time to stop wasting time, resources, and energy and start taking control of your authentic career path.

style of job searching, and what kind of actions I had already taken. Her analysis pointed out the gaps in my approach and she suggested a few tweaks to maximize my time and energy. Her recommendations were based on research and sound methodology -- she doesn't throw fluff at you that you can get from a self-help book! I had gotten a lot of career advice before speaking with her, and yet I still learned some key, valuable tips that I will take with me into the future. Thank you, Jennifer!"

duty to that of joy. In other areas of my life, Jenni has helped me recognize how to be a better me as compared to some other forms of therapy or coaching that ask you to revise your sense of self beyond recognition. During our sessions, her sensitivity to listen and of attunement to my current state is organic and refreshing, and has taught me to better trust my own instincts, self-knowledge, and sense of ethics. I think that Jenni has the flexibility to address the needs of a wide array of different personalities and even to accommodate random or seemingly unstructured thoughts about one's current situation in life or one's future goals. What I have found of my time with her has been invaluable to my own belief in myself in a way that is authentically expressive of me growing into myself, as a more confident, conscientious, and positive person. Thanks, Jenni!"
