__________________________________________________________________________________Career Fair

In preparation for the career fair, Graduate Business Career Services is hosting Career Fair Strategies session

Career Fair Strategies – Making a Big Impression in a Short Time

If you haven’t been to a career fair before, it is a unique situation where you have a very short time to make a big impression!  What will you say when the recruiter looks you in the eye and says “how can I help you?”  It’s really all about how you can help them, of course.  We’ll cover what recruiters are looking for, what they may ask and how you can respond confidently and clearly.  You’ll also learn about logistical and preparation strategies to enable you to manage the many opportunities to share your story that only a career fair can offer.

 Daytime sessions

  • Wednesday, 4/3              12 – 1 p.m.   TMH 255
  • Thursday, 4/4                    12 – 1 p.m.   TMH 255

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to LaBarre Spence, Career Coach  at spen0377@stthomas.edu and note the session you plan to attend.

 

Alumni Update, Career Services, Student Life

New Assistant Director of Graduate Business Alumni Relations

Amanda-Wagner Amanda Wagner, a 2012 MBC graduate, has joined OCB as the new assistant director of Graduate Business Alumni Relations. Continue reading for a message from Amanda…

As an MBC alumna, the Opus College of Business is a place I called home for four years and I’m excited to return as the assistant director of graduate business alumni relations. Having managed a professional career with extensive travel while also going to class at least once a week, I know the challenges of pursuing an MBA or similar degree. I understand that classes occupy a lot of time and force you to reprioritize the things and people in your life. After graduation, it’s easy to fill your time with all of those things you’ve placed on the back burner for the last several years.

I encourage you to stay engaged. A variety of events provide a forum for networking with students, alumni, faculty and staff. We are always looking for experienced alumni to participate in information sessions, speak to business classes, mentor current students and serve on our alumni advisory board.

As you continue to prioritize and reprioritize, I hope you will find time to stop by. Our goal is to offer events and opportunities that add value, both personally and professionally. If there is something specific you would like to see as an alumni offering, please do not hesitate to contact the graduate business alumni relations office at (651) 962-4325.

Best,

Amanda Wagner ‘12 MBC
