Before graduating from the University of St. Thomas, Jen C. held an internship as a Program Coordinator where she developed a love for Project Management. After graduating with a degree in Psychology and Business, she interviewed at Boom Lab, Target, and UnitedHealth Group, ultimately choosing Boom Lab because of our commitment to training, career development, and our long list of Fortune 500 clients.
Jen’s first assignment was at an international financial institution where she helped with program-level status reporting, risk and issue management, and some light budget work. As a first-time Project Coordinator, she eased into her responsibilities but ultimately ended up managing budgets of over $1MM.
Following that project, Jen was assigned to an international manufacturing client as a Release Manager for an SAP implementation in Poland. Though her 5-person core team was small, her extended international team reached upwards of 75 people—that’s a lot of time and money to keep track of. Their implementation went well and, almost immediately following, Jen received a job offer from the client.
Though she felt tied to Boom Lab after a nearly 3 year career with us, she ultimately opted to accept the client’s offer and join their team as a Portal Lead—a position typically held by employees with 10 – 15 years of experience. Jen became their youngest Portal Lead by far.
Since converting, Jen has gone on to gain her Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) and has been promoted twice.
