He attended City University of New York, York College, where he graduated with a B.A. in 1973.[1] During his time at York College, he supported himself cutting corned beef as a restaurant worker in a union. His first experience with politics was in 1969, when he worked in Herman Badillo's campaign for mayor. His experience there eventually led to his professional career as a political consultant, working with mainly Democrats who were pro-union. Later, he worked as a coffee boy on Wall Street.

After Sheinkopf graduated from York College, he worked as an investigator for the Department of Corrections and then with the Port Authority police. He was the first to respond to a call one night, when he realized he could have been killed. He quit the next day.

He eventually began working with political strategist Walter Diamond and began to build a reputation and gain more business even outside New York City. Sheinkopf founded his consulting firm in 1981.
