I’m new to the College of Business and don’t know where to start?

If you are a pre-business student, staff at the Career Success Center invites you to learn more about our services and learn more about maximizing campus opportunities available to you. Freshman students create first drafts of their resumes, attend networking events, consider volunteer opportunities, collect information on internships, and join clubs and organizations. Sophomore students typically seek and obtain internships, attend networking events, participate in clubs and volunteer commitments, explore career options by major, engage in informational interviews and job shadowing opportunities, and fine tune their resumes.

I was just admitted to pro-school and want to know which activities will be most beneficial for my career?

As a new pro-school student, you are strongly encouraged to strengthen your LinkedIn profile and use it to connect with recruiters, employers, professionals in your industry, peers, and College of Business faculty and staff. Your priority should be obtaining an internship and narrowing your career interest areas. Be sure to have completed at least five informational interviews and fine tune your resume by the end of the year. Through your interaction with employers at events and in your internship, you should be able to narrow your future career interest areas and strengthen industry contacts.

As a senior, you will continue to engage in experiential learning opportunities through club participation, volunteer opportunities, and internships. Be sure to explore and develop a list of prospective employers and their contact information. Attending career fairs and networking events will help you to refine this list and will increase your interview chances. Continue to strengthen your interview skills and resume. Finally, go on employment interviews, evaluate job offers and accept one!

How can I figure out what type of job I want after graduation?

Visiting with Career Advisors, completing informational interviews, participating in internships, and joining company tours will help you to evaluate job opportunities and interests.

How do I get information on writing resumes and cover letters?

Information about writing resumes and cover letters is available to you through the College of Business Career Guide. All Career Guide content is accessible online (link to Drupal book). This content includes guidance on preparing and applying for positions, interviewing skills and business etiquette.
