  • Career Coaching Support

    The Mentorship Program pairs students with industry-specific professionals and alumni from the business community. This is an excellent opportunity for juniors and seniors to learn from an experienced professional, network in the local community and experience their chosen industry firsthand. 

  • Avoid Job Scams

    Targeted phishing emails and LinkedIn messages offering employment opportunities are prevalent. Jobs that sound too good to be true should raise a red flag for anyone. Fake job postings can come from unsolicited emails sent to your student account and in online job listing sites. You can start with these basic guidelines to avoid a potential scam.
