About Us

Harrison Careers was founded in 2002 by Peter Harrison, a seasoned careers expert with over two decades of experience as a leading authority on entry-level hiring.

“Hey, I’m Peter, and I’m the founder and head coach at Harrison Careers. I spent my early career as a Chartered Accountant at Deloitte, then left Scotland to pursue my MBA at Kellogg Business School in Chicago. I interned at the prestigious management consulting firm McKinsey, and later joined Goldman Sachs, where I worked in New York then London as an Executive Director in Convertible Bonds.  

“While working at Goldman, I was put in charge of recruiting for London’s Equities Division (in addition to my primary job in Convertible Bond Sales), and I really enjoyed the process of interviewing and mentoring candidates. At the turn of the millennium, I left Goldman and founded Harrison Careers – it has been my passion and privilege ever since to help thousands of young people navigate the entry-level recruitment process.”
