Victoria Rayel

I am very versatile in my approach and pull from a number of different methods that best fit my client’s needs. I apply a combination of Social Cognitive (self-efficacy and the belief in one’s capabilities), Trait Factor (matching personalities to careers) and Developmental Self-Concept Theories (career development as a life-long process).

A bit about my background-I started my career over 12 years ago as a technical recruiter. That’s when I realized that connecting people to careers they loved is what truly energized me! I continued in the world of business for a few more years as a Senior Mutual Fund Accountant at State Street Corporation, then after some time abroad, I pro-actively pivoted into career counseling. After earning a Masters of Science in College Student Development and Counseling at Northeastern University, I managed a career program for three years at the nonprofit Bottom Line, a college access and success program that supports first generation and low income students. I then transitioned to my current role as the Director of Undergraduate Career Management at the Questrom School of Business at Boston University working with Alumni, Undergraduates and MSMS students.

I was driven to start my private practice because of my connection to young professionals (recent college graduates to those in their late 20’s) that are truly motivated to discover and commit to a rewarding career that brings energy and joy to their life. I now look to focus my time on supporting this group in their career transitions for a successful next chapter.

This October (2011) I attended Lesah Beckhusen’s, 3 hour presentation on , “Integrating Results into Core Career Themes” in Portland, Oregon. The content she shared was superb and offered me many new insights and applications into the use of SkillScan with students and clients. The presentation was so compelling, interactive and useful to career professionals that the three hours passed in what seemed like the blink of an eye. If you have the opportunity to attend one of Lesah’s presentations I have three words for you: Don’t miss it! "
