“Mentoring has always come naturally to me, and I’ve been able to use my professional and personal experiences to help students and young adults achieve success.”
CareerSpots’ founder and president, Kathy Egan, is the mother of four children (two in college, and two yet to attend). From her earliest summer job as a CETA Summer Youth Counselor to mentoring interns for years in the television news industry, Kathy has harbored an enthusiasm for preparing students for the working world. Inspired by her deep-seated passions for video production, education, and mentorship, Kathy founded CareerSpots in 2007; since then, Kathy’s videos have served more than three million students nationwide.
