Career Development Specialist & Mentor
Waco, TX, USA
Hey there! I'm Jermaine, and I'm here to help you upskill and develop your career. Let me tell you a bit about myself and why I'm uniquely qualified to guide you on this journey. After migrating to the U.S from Jamaica, my sole mission was to earn a college education, fulfilling the request of my late grandfather. Determined to make it happen, I discovered the various scholarships available and decided to give sports a shot. I played every sport I could, and it paid off when someone who had been there and seen further introduced me to the game of football during my sophomore year in high school. Thanks to their relevant mentorship and training, I not only learned the sport but also gained multiple scholarship offers. This experience sparked a dream in me to replicate this process at scale. During my junior year in college I began to pursue this dream, I met my wife upon graduation, who shared similar passions and aspirations. Together, we embarked on a journey to make a difference. Things really took off when the Mayor of San Antonio recommended me to lead a Boys & Girls Club and initiate the White House's My Brother's Keeper program in the city. These opportunities allowed me to impact the lives of countless young individuals and shape their futures. Six years ago, I became an apprentice, learning the ins and outs of building companies in highly regulated markets. Leading operations and business development for the nation's first degreed tech apprenticeship, I gained invaluable experience and knowledge. Along the way, I purchased two e-commerce brands, and multiple properties, and built businesses from mere ideas to revenue-generating ventures. Now, I'm here to share what I've learned and am learning with you. Whether you're looking to make a change, take a chance on something you've always wanted to do, or simply feel stuck and want to grow, I'm ready to journey with you. I specialize in building relationships, helping you land your dream job, shaping your career, developing family values, community development, upskilling for the career you want, starting a business, going from zero to one, networking, and project management. So, let's embark on this journey together and unlock your full potential. Get ready to take your career to new heights and achieve the success you've always dreamed of.
