Take Control of your Career!

Whether we are helping a student locate an internship opportunity, or connecting with a career coach, or even pursuing an opportunity upon graduation, we work proactively to make sure the right companies are matched with the right students!

We help students develop a personal career strategy that helps them:

        

  • Apply the skills and knowledge developed in the classroom
  • Continue to build a strong track record of experiences
  • Successfully network with other business professionals and executives

Career Development Process

Instead of relying on a series of stand alone activities, we help students pursue a process in the development of their career aspirations.  It starts when the student enrolls in BA 300 (Career Planning and Development) and then continues though their engagement in the College to Career Coaching Program and/or the Internship Program, and/or other Leadership Development Options and culminates with the successful launch of their career upon graduation. 

BA 300 - Career Planning and Development

We help students take control of their careers by:

  • Helping them identify their interests and passions
  • Identifying ways for them to pursue those passions
  • Learning how to effectively market themselves in today's economy

College to Career Coaching

We help students connect with mid-level business executives for the duration of at least one semester to help the student in the further development and implementation of their personal career plan.

Internship Option

Junior and Senior BBA students as well as Graduate students have the option of pursuing an internship with us, as part of their career strategy.  These students often have the option of considering internships that are either part or full time in several different industries.  

The vast majority of our internships are paid. The average salary for undergraduate students is $14/hour and for graduates, it is $16/hour.

Leadership Development Options

By engaging with COB student organizations and other entities on campus, we help encourage students to further develop their relationship and track record skills in pursuit of their career aspirations upon graduation.

Placement Support

Finally, as the student approaches their graduation date, we work closely with them to help them understand potential professional certification options, as well as employer development programs, that might help them be even more successful in their careers.  We then help connect the student with firms where viable opportunities exist in the field of their choosing.
