MBA Alumni Career Coaching: What to Expect
Alumni who are clear on their target industry are connected with one of our industry-specific coaches. Additionally, we offer clarification coaching as a first step for alumni who are still determining their target industry. The alum and coach will arrange a conversation (by phone, Skype, or in-person) to discuss goals and available resources.
Based on career objectives, the alum and coach will create a plan for next steps. Topics for session(s) could include any of the following: resume and cover letter reviews, target company strategy, networking plan, mock interviews, job search strategy, LinkedIn Profile reviews, and offer negotiation.
