JOB SEARCH TEAMS

The MBA Career Center offers this proven approach to successful job placement. In small group settings, job seekers strategize through group interaction on their job search campaigns. Teams meet once a week, and members report on their productivity, brainstorm, share ideas, and develop action items for the following week. For each team that is formed, a Career Coach from the MBA Career Center and a Peer Mentor will be assigned to facilitate.
