About the Career Center

Our integrated center offers individualized guidance and resources to help you unleash your potential — and pursue the career of your choosing.

Your Path to the World of Business

At the Poole College of Management, we empower students to pursue a lifetime of success and impact. That work starts on the day you arrive, driven by a dedicated, holistic Career Center that helps you understand your opportunities, harness your strengths and start building a career you’ll love.

We’ll help you explore different functions and industries — and your own values — to discover where your passions and skills intersect. We’ll connect you with the internships, co-ops and events that help build your resume and your network. And we’ll assist in finding a fulfilling job you want that makes the most of the knowledge and skills you’ve gained.

Our unified approach ensures every student receives the personalized guidance and resources they need to thrive.

Our Approach

The Career Center provides education, resources and coaching around leadership development, job search, and internal career advancement. Our coaches work with each student to build individualized career plans — assessing strengths and interests, building a brand and developing marketing documents, identifying target industries and employers or entrepreneurial endeavors, networking with advocates, interviewing and negotiating.

The role of the Career Center is to offer broad support to all students by helping them refine personal narratives and identify career paths that align with their interests and needs.

  • Individual career advising, including self-assessment
  • Career and internship fairs
  • Support for resume, cover letters and LinkedIn profile writing
