The School of Business Office of Career Services is committed to providing the highest level of career related support and services to all of our students and strategic partners. Our office serves all undergraduate and graduate students, as well as all School of Business alumni. Our alumni benefit from lifetime career support through our office.
We offer services including resume and cover letter critiques, interview prep and mock interviews, internship and job search advice, major-related career advice, career workshops, as well as multiple career events. As a stand-alone office and team dedicated to assist School of Business Students, we work in partnership with University Career Services, the centralized career center.
We welcome the partnership between faculty and our office. Faculty members serve as valuable resources and knowledge pools that our students rely on. Below are some services we provide to our faculty:
- Professional Skills Development – Interviewing, Networking, Social Media, etc.
- Resume, Cover Letter and other Job Search Documents
- Job or Internship Search Strategies
- Industry Knowledge and Experience

Note: We work with faculty to create custom presentations that fit specific undergraduate or graduate level courses’ needs. If you have a specific need, please contact Kaleb Lewis, Associate Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Employer Connections: At this time, we do not promote employers individually reaching out to faculty in School of Business classes. We take our academic responsibility seriously and prefer employers attend student organization meetings or Career Services events. However, should a faculty member wish to have an employer attend his/her class, our office may be able to assist. Please contact Kerry Willigan, Assistant Dean, Career Services at email@example.com.

How to refer an employer to Career Services: If an employer reaches you directly to advertise a job or internship, please forward the message to our office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We will connect with the employer to verify the position and outline our Employer Recruitment Policies. After speaking with the employer, we will post the position on either Handshake, Business Buzz, or send a targeted email to students.
Note: We do not keep a list of “top” students to give to employers nor do we give out students’ resumes to employers. Faculty members should contact our office before sending employers student information.
