Career Categories

All students, regardless of their background, interests, or experience, can benefit from some additional help when they decide to embark on a job search. Oftentimes, searching for a new job can require as much work as an actual job itself. It takes a lot of time, patience, effort, and many steps to get right. That’s where we come in! We can help coach you every step of the way. If a student decides to embark on a traditional assisted job search, next level, or professional development, they work with a member of the Career Services team to outline a plan and receive advice on how to successfully obtain the ideal position. This can include help with fine-tuning resumes, cover letters, LinkedIn proficiency, networking techniques and interview skills. We are also able to facilitate introductions to various companies who are looking to hire accounting talent. The timing is dependent on each individual student’s needs and goals and is available all year long.

 

Traditional Assisted Job Search: This designation is for students seeking employment and/or advancement in their current position with less than 10 years of work history.
