An Edge for Undergraduates

As an undergraduate student in the UB School of Management, you have a unique advantage when it comes to career preparation.

The Career Resource Center (CRC) facilitates two hands-on courses that will lead you through every aspect of your career development process. Self-assessment, résumé writing, interviewing skills and job-search techniques are just a few of the topics covered in this mandatory, two-course sequence. CRC staff, faculty, area professionals and alumni will help you develop a personal marketing strategy that will serve you throughout your entire career.

Career Connections: Part I

Career Connections: Part I (MGG 298) is designed for sophomore and transfer students in the School of Management to build a foundation for their career planning and exploration rooted in experiential learning. The concepts of the course will revolve around connecting classroom knowledge to real-world settings and promoting service learning and internships. This course will introduce students to key career-related materials to assist with selecting a concentration and developing a Career Action Plan that aligns with their strengths and career interests.
