Personalized Career Support

“The Career Management Center was there to give me pep talks and advise me on companies and alums I should contact,” he says. “Without their help, I would never have known to reach out to an alum at EY and never would have started building the relationship with the firm. They told me I would be a great candidate for EY and gave me two names to contact. After that, the rest is history.” - Brian Hawkins (MBA'19)
