Freshmen | Sophomores | Juniors | Seniors
Today, students need to build a professional network and personal brand as early as possible to significantly increase both the quality and quantity of internship and full-time employment opportunities in the future. Ideally, students should create this foundation the summer before arriving on campus or during freshman year so they have an easy way using LinkedIn to connect with people they meet and can build a robust professional online network throughout their college experience.
We deliver value by working one-on-one with each student to develop a personalized career plan and build professional career assets (LinkedIn profile and resume) that can be used as the foundation throughout college. We incorporate soft skills employers’ want into each plan, independent of major, so students can demonstrate that they have what it takes to contribute immediately. We set goals and milestones together, give feedback every step of the way, and ensure execution happens.
In addition, company targeting is a key component of the job search process and is unique to each student. Company culture, size, structure, and geographic location are just some of the attributes that should be built into the research process. The earlier the student can articulate dream companies or roles, we can help them translate these goals and tie them to skills, academic areas of study, and internships to set the student apart.
