Congratulations, Professional MBA Fall Graduates.
Through the PMBA newsletter this fall, the Office of Career Management has provided quick job search or professional development direction based on materials and resources in the PMBA Community Blackboard Career Management folder. Explore that folder now as those free materials might not be available to you after you graduate.
FirstHand (formerly Vault), is a comprehensive career development resource. In FirstHand, go to Library and find quick links to Editor Picks that inform and educate you on specific trending topics. Scroll down or use the pull-down menus to access categories that include Interviewing tips, Networking, Job Search pointers, and Industry insights that share "A Day in the Life" of specific careers. Most of what you need to research, discover or support your career interests can be accessed through the Library.
Want to explore where to apply your skills and abilities now or for the future?
The Careers folder shares inside information about top-ranked companies in specific industries to include company profiles that highlight company culture details, employee reviews, compensation and benefits package information, as well as interviewing specifics and how to get hired. Use this information to direct your energies toward long-range career planning, targeting-in on a specific industry employer or to explore a company where you have applied for a position.
The Jobs folder in FIrstHand can be tasked to find mid-senior level positions and a combination of the type of role, the location, employer and employment type. Use this to find or direct your next move.
There are great resources in FirstHand for job searchers and career changers. Use your student credentials for access.
Another exclusive resource is Beyond B School (use your student credentials). It’s your resource for MBA-specific information. Learn about Networking, Negotiations, navigating a Career Change, producing an MBA-level LinkedIn profile, and the trending focus on Personal Branding in video formats, quick reads and in-depth content.
There is so much to explore, and you still have time. Congratulations again on your significant academic accomplishment.
