Meet Our New Youth Solutions Team Member - Karishma Sehmi, Digital Career Development Manager


My experience has been in varied industries and fields. I am a data driven decision maker with a mix of seven years of experience in finance, recruiting, global mobility, coaching high school students, project management and organizational development. This combined experience spans organizations from 10 to 10,000 employees. Although I have enjoyed and learned from all of my roles, the opportunity to make a positive change in the lives of young people motivates me every morning – both in and outside of work. I earned my undergraduate degree from Indraprastha University, India in Business Administration and my Masters in Business Administration with specialization in Human Resources from Institute of Management and Technology CDL, India.


Automating processes has been a common denominator in all my experiences, which has helped me to reach a larger audience and also to customize their needs. In my role as Digital Career Development Manager at Youth Solutions, I look forward to expanding the reach of career development resources customized to youth across the state and build the appropriate digital platforms that help them make informed career choices to realize their true potential and achieve their dreams.


I grew up in India and moved to the United States a little over eight years ago. I am a new mom blessed with a baby boy! I love the outdoors – trekking, exploring, and going on long walks. When I am not trekking, I can be found savoring different cuisines with my husband. Both of us are big time foodies.
