Meet Jamie Chafel

A Little About Me

The one piece of advice I always give to employers or job seekers is: 

Focus on the long-term impact of the decisions you make and the effect they have on your career path. There are elements of any job that provide short-term benefits. More often than not however, the moves made with an emphasis on the future yield the biggest gains over the course of your career.

The biggest mistake I see employers or job seekers make is: 

Not networking enough. Even if you’re perfectly happy in your current role, there is value in being proactive in expanding your professional network. The connections you make today could play integral roles in enhancing your career in the future.

The favorite part of my job is: 

Having the opportunity to focus my efforts in an area of personal interest – technology – and to continually learn and develop my expertise within it. This absolutely helps me equip candidates and clients with the detail needed to make informed and smart hiring and career decisions.

My personal interests are: 

Boston sports, reading, technology, and meeting new people.
