Preparing for Your Search
Success happens when opportunity meets preparation. We prepare students with skill development and knowledge to help ensure that whatever the situation, they will shine.
Professional Development Course
The Professional Development course is designed to provide you with the professional skills necessary for your first MBA-level job and future promotions. You will learn the skills you need to effectively showcase your talents in interviews, networking opportunities and everyday business interactions. Alumni and recruiters take an active role in the class to share real-world experiences and expectations.
Student clubs offer the opportunity to explore specific industries or functional areas while developing a career focus. Clubs partner with the CMC to bring industry professionals to campus through activities like career panels and networking events.
Explore industries, research companies and prepare for interviews using more than 90 online subscriptions and other resources available through the Goizueta Business Library. Our business librarians are available to meet with you to provide guidance as you research industries and career paths.
We offer several ways for you to practice your interview skills in advance. Available to all students, our web-based interview simulator captures practice interviews on video, facilitates feedback from CMC and student coaches, and tracks progression as you continue to hone your interview skills. Prior to the beginning of the internship recruiting season, we offer a mock interview blitz where Goizueta alumni conduct full-dress mock interviews with first-year students. Each student will do a behavioral interview and will receive feedback from the alumnus following the interview. These interviews are also conducted at the individual level with the coaches and as formalized activity for One-Year students (One-Year Mock Interview Blitz).
Gain valuable insights from industry insiders through our Executives-in-Residence program. These executives volunteer their time and expertise as advisors to students through individual coaching sessions on campus. Because many MBA students are uncertain of all the career possibilities that the MBA provides, Goizueta gives you the opportunity to explore multiple career paths to find the right one for you.
