Business Career Center Advisory Board

Finding a fulfilling career in today’s job environment requires identifying the fields and roles that match one’s capabilities and experience, developing excellent job search and interview skills, and building a professional network. The rationale for the establishment of the Business Career Center Advisory Board is to create a partnership with business leaders who will help business students to succeed in the internship and job search process and support the college in its mission to provide a pipeline of outstanding and well-prepared talent to the business community. 

Benefits to members include the opportunity to:

  • Partner with the college and other corporations to develop innovative ideas and share best practices in career services and talent development
  • Enhance the visibility and image of their organization with Marquette business students, faculty, and administration
  • Develop contacts with business career center staff and business faculty for accessing talent for internships and jobs
  • Interact with business students, faculty and other employers
  • Maintain current knowledge about economic, business, and hiring trends

Mission and Structure of the Business Career Center Advisory Board

The mission of the Business Career Center Advisory Board is to:

  • Identify employment market needs and hiring trends
  • Support career development activities
  • Provide information about internships and employment opportunities in the board members’ industry’s and when applicable access to internships and employment in the board members’ or other companies
