Executive Career Consultant and Program Manager
Mo Chanmugham is a marketer turned lawyer turned career coach. After a string of “dream jobs”, first as a marketing associate in the sports industry (Reebok), then as an assistant to a Hollywood agent in the film industry (United Talent Agency), and finally as an entertainment lawyer in the music industry (Def Jam, Sony Music), he realized he was chasing a superficial version of success rather than one that was authentic to him.
Motivated by the belief that the right job was out there for him, he invested in his own personal development to get a better sense of what he truly cared about. He quickly fell in love with what he was learning and saw how coaching gave him the clarity and confidence he needed in his professional life. That’s when he realized he wanted to use coaching to help other professionals who were stuck in unfulfilling jobs gain the clarity and confidence they needed to find their ideal careers. As he has changed careers more than once he understands why people are driven to find meaningful work, the mistakes they make when trying to choose the “right” career path, and how to avoid them.
He is an ICF certified professional coach (ACC) and completed his training through the Coaches Training Institute (CPCC). He is also a member of the Forbes Coaches Council, a community of the world’s leading business and career coaches. He serves as the Senior Director of Career Services at New England Law Boston, and is a volunteer career coach with the Institute for Career Transitions, an initiative through MIT to help the long-term unemployed. He completed his undergraduate degree in marketing from Boston University School of Management (’99) and his law degree from New England Law Boston (’06)
