MBA & MSF Students
The Career Strategies office at the Carroll School offers personalized resources to MBA and MSF students at every step of the career search. Even after you’ve graduated, you’ll have access to career services for alumni. For more information, please contact us.
Here’s an overview of career services for MBA and MSF students.
Throughout your graduate program, experienced career advisors are available to help you set career goals, develop a strategic search plan, and execute an effective internship or job search. We encourage you to meet often with your career advisor. You may schedule an appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Evening MBA and MSF students may schedule an advising appointment by emailing email@example.com. Please include your availability, a brief agenda and your current resume.
MBA and MSF students have access to a wealth of job and internship opportunities through MBA Focus/GTS, the Carroll School’s online career network. Students may also post resumes to MBA Focus/GTS. To access the network, complete the Campus Recruiting Agreement.
Evening MBA and MSF students may access MBA Focus/GTS within 12 months of graduation.
GRADUATE STUDENT CLUBS
Clubs give students the opportunity to meet peers who share their career interests. Many clubs host alumni panels and speakers to keep their members current on industry and functional trends. Visit the GMA website to learn how to get involved.
INFORMATION AND NETWORKING SESSIONS
The Carroll School regularly welcomes employers to campus to speak with graduate students. These visits are excellent opportunities to make contacts and learn everything a serious candidate should know about a company. Check the weekly Career Strategies newsletter and the MBA Focus/GTS calendar for upcoming events.
Strengthen your interviewing skills by scheduling a mock interview with your career advisor. It’s a great way to practice answering questions and gain valuable feedback. See our Interview Guide for additional strategies.
Career Strategies distributes a weekly newsletter on Fridays, highlighting new postings and upcoming events. If you are not receiving the newsletter, please contact Maryellen Jordan.
Throughout the year, the Career Strategies office hosts group workshops designed to help students prepare for the job search. Workshops focus on improving interview skills, developing effective approach and follow-up techniques, building networks, and more. Check MBA Focus/GTS to browse upcoming workshops.
