Career Management Bootcamp
This is the core seminar for all graduate business students and it is required for full-time students entering in Fall 2012. In this seminar, we will focus on two key areas of personal branding: 1 - Developing Your Brand (planning a career development timeline; understanding the current job market; researching industries and companies; networking and informational interviewing) and 2 – Communicating Your Brand (differentiating yourself through internships, associations, class projects, etc; building a strong resume and cover letter; managing an online presence). Interview skills will only be a small part of this seminar. There are other workshops designed to specifically work on interview skills.
In this workshop, students will learn the skills they need to sell their brand in an interview: utilizing resources and connections to locate job opportunities; preparing for phone, one-on-one, and panel interviews; following up after an interview and negotiating salary.
Interviewing for jobs can be intimidating and we want our students to be as prepared as possible. We offer students the opportunity to practice their skills in a few formats, including interviews with a real recruiter or filmed interviews that can be reviewed with an advisor.
One-on-One Career Coaching
Students can work with an advisor to further customize their strategic career plans. We offer advising throughout a student’s career development, from initial exploration to salary negotiations.
CareerForward Hours are opportunities to meet informally with the Career Management Resources team and occasionally faculty and deans. There is a designated topic of discussion, but there is also time to meet fellow students and enjoy some snacks. Topics planned for the 2012-13 school year include: alumni connections, mentor program, social media and more.
