Jeff Kayer

Hello.  My name is Jeff Kayer and I look forward to serving your career needs!  I grew up in the New York City area before attending Shippensburg University in 2001 and have stayed in the Harrisburg area ever since. I have learned over the years that Central Pennsylvania offers tremendous potential for finding an ideal career while also being an affordable place to live.

I have a very diverse background that has enabled me to learn about many different types of career sectors.  I have worked for and collaborated with federal government officials, political campaigns, non-profit organizations, educators and school officials, volunteer organizations, business owners and have even written sports stories for several different local publications and websites. Using this experience, I have enjoyed working with students to maximize their potential in finding successful careers!

Finding the right job for you is one of the more stressful yet exciting and rewarding times of your life. I am excited to bring my career knowledge and help you achieve your career goals!  Please do not hesitate to call me at 717-901-5100 x1687 or email me at
