Career Development Seminar
The Career Development Seminar (BUSI 110) is a required course taken by all business students in the junior year. It is designed to enable business students to clearly define their career objectives and available opportunities as they relate to Eberhardt School of Business concentrations. Through the course business students will understand the connection between internships and full-time careers, be trained in the tactics and methods of conducting a successful job search and in preparing for multiple career transitions over the course of their entire business career.
The class is delivered weekly through lectures, class discussion, role play activities, career development assignments and guest speakers. Students will be expected to:
- produce a professional resume
- demonstrate the ability to create targeted cover letters and write professional thank you notes/letters
- develop interviewing skills through role playing, informational and mock interviews
- develop networking and professional communication skills
- attend events that will contribute to job/internship search success and expand professional contacts
- produce a career plan that maps out your career objectives beginning with an internship and culminating in your professional role at least 5 years post-graduation
The class meets one night per week and is offered on a Pass/No-Credit basis. It is offered in both the Fall and Spring semesters each academic year. The course is taught by the Career Management Center professional staff.
