What You Can Expect From Career Development

You have just read some of our expectations of you. Now we want to let you know what you can expect from us. We will:

  • Work with you in a professional and ethical manner.
  • Be available to discuss your individual concerns, career development strategy, and job search processes.
  • Provide you with opportunities to meet employers regarding internship, part-time, and career positions. We will assist you to identify opportunities with many different organizations of varying sizes, in many functional areas and industries.
  • Provide the latest organizational information, resources, and training programs in job search strategy and career management.
  • Keep conversations, statistics, and career management records confidential, and only release them with your consent or in aggregate form. (Submission of a resume to the resume book or for a resume referral is implied consent to the release of information contained in the resume).
  • Be sensitive to your needs, interested in your suggestions, and flexible enough to adapt our operations to accommodate them.

The relatively small size of the Graduate School of Management’s MBA Program allows for a great deal of interaction between students and the Career Development staff. We will work closely together to help you develop the career plan and job search strategy that is right for you. We are dedicated to assisting you and look forward to a close and productive working relationship during your two years at the GSM.
