Amanda Schonfeld has been helping people decide “what to do with their lives” for over 14 years. She began her career at Sapient’s Chicago office, left for an adventure in New York at a headhunting agency, and then she road-tripped back to Chicago where she built her higher education career and eventually became Director of Admission for Illinois Institute of Technology’s Stuart School of Business. After four years in higher education, she boomeranged back to Sapient, then went to BeyondCurious and VSA Partners. She is currently Talent Acquisition Leader at GSA, recruiting talent for federal government innovation programs such as 18F and the Presidential Innovation Fellows.
