Office of Professional Development Offers Industry Coaching Services

Since the fall of 2014, the Georgetown McDonough Office of Professional Development has provided undergraduate business students career services, including one-on-one coaching, career treks, and workshops covering a variety of career-related topics.  This year, one additional service is being added to the menu: industry-specific career coaching.

The office has hired four industry experts to offer one-on-one coaching to students interested in each coach’s respective field, including financial services, product marketing, advertising, and consulting. Coaches all have extensive experience in coaching at both the undergraduate and MBA levels.  

“I am thrilled to offer our students this additional service,” stated Rebecca Cassidy, director of the Office of Professional Development. “Students can now spend time with experts in their area industry of interest to learn about the career paths that are available, how to create an industry-specific resume, and how to master the questions they may be asked in an interview.  It will help our students develop into stronger candidates.”
