College Student Interviewing


College Admissions and
Career Mentoring

Today, parents face unprecedented challenges in guiding their children towards a successful future. Admission to top universities is more competitive and less predictable than ever. What’s more, graduating with a college degree, even from a top school, is no longer a guaranteed path to a high-paying job. The situation becomes even more complex when children frequently disagree with their parents or are unwilling to accept their advice.

Since 2015, our mission at Academic & Career Mentors (“AC Mentors”) (“ACM”) has been to guide and mentor the next generation through the demanding journey towards educational and career success. We assist students with:

  • Top college admissions and graduate school admissions
  • Obtaining competitive corporate internships and jobs

Our founder, James Pak, grew up in New York, attended Boston College and Columbia University, and worked for over 10 years in the highly competitive investment banking and investment management industries. His background gives him precise insight into what is required to gain admission into top universities and companies.

Based on the strength of our research capabilities, we provide a strategic, personalized approach to ensure your child not only gains admission to top universities but also secures sought-after internships and jobs. Just as importantly, our guidance is designed to develop important skills and mindset, preparing a child for academic and professional excellence.

The decisions we make today are pivotal for a child’s future, as lack of or wrong information can reduce a child’s chances for attending top universities and securing their ideal job. Each choice we make now plays an important role in a child’s prospects for tomorrow.

At AC Mentors, your child’s success is our success, and we’re here to make it happen. Join us on this transformative journey towards a brighter, more prosperous future. Contact us today, and let’s secure your child’s path to success together.
