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 career development and entrepreneurship curriculum, and teaching thousands of MBAs how to navigate their job search, communicate their stories, and advance their career.
When it comes to all things business, Jenni has been "around the block" 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 process easier.
Today, Jenni helps individuals get access to the coaching and training they need to take control of their career development, and master the process of following their authentic career.
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.
Understanding 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.
At Fink Development, we believe in sharing the best career advice in the industry. And, we partner with top experts in their fields to do it.
We know that our clients want to provide value and impact at work, they are driven, and they are constantly eager to learn, but finding the right trainings isn't always easy.
Our trainings provide ambitious business professionals access to the best tips and tricks in the industry, a jolt of information to pump up your motivation, and clear strategies to get you moving forward towards your career goals.
If you're looking for some fun, engaging, and thought-provoking content to start developing in your career, we got you covered. See you soon!

me feel prepared for any question that came up in the interview. She was also thoughtful of when the interview prep sessions took place.She wanted to make sure it wasn't too close to the actual interview so I wasn't getting a lot of feedback right before I went into the interview. I was offered the job, but I will also take her techniques with me for future interviews."

knowledge that she brings. While it is so easy to get bogged down by the many moving parts of progressing through career choices, Jennifer brought confidence and a sense of lightness to each of our communications. She particularly excelled at helping me solve whatever issue I was dealing with and not just put a patch on. Keeping the long-term goal in mind while progressing through shorter and intermediate milestones is a particular strength of hers. She is empathetic, kind, and grounded in her perspective. Beyond her patience and practical knowledge, there was one thing about Jennifer that truly stands out to me - Ireally enjoyed my time with her. Thanks, Jenni!"

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!"
this too, but she went beyond intellectual strategy. What she has that no one else had was a deep understanding of human beings. She gets the importance of connecting with people as people, and I learned from her that this is often the most valuable skill in the job search. She also helped me pause and take stock of how I was feeling in a given moment, whether I was being authentic and genuine, and how that was impacting the actions I was taking. This emphasis was a key part of my ability to find the job that was right for me, and it wasn’t the one I had originally expected. To put it simply, she really cares about her clients — it’s not just a job for her. Because of that, she goes the extra mile and it makes a huge difference. She was also willing to be available at a moment’s notice when I needed advice and that was super helpful. Thank you Jenni!"
