Rollins MBA Students and Alumni Enjoy One-on-One Career Coaching
Business Career Development Center Offers Support in Career Entry, Development, and Transition with World-Class Coaching and Resources
Rollins MBA Crummer Graduate School of Business Career Development Center has recently expanded its career coaching to offer its students and alumni greater access to the career center both in-person and online, with services including, career strategy development, career assessment, resume guidance, interview practice, and access to networks of business leaders across the globe.
“At the Rollins MBA Career Development Center, we are committed to supporting our students and alumni throughout their professional career, from orientation to retirement,” said Jacqueline Brito, SPHR, Assistant Dean and Executive Director of the Career Development Center. “We have brought on additional career coaches who are dedicated to helping our students and alumni not only find the best job, but develop a satisfying and sustainable career.”
The center has a specific focus on the business interests and opportunities of MBA students and alumni, including internships, which most outplacement providers do not offer. Research shows that the overall value of services begins at $4,500 and increases over time as graduates use the Rollins MBA services. Comprehensive outplacement support services for comparable job search time periods (average three to six months) runs as much or more and must be paid for out of pocket.
"Rollins MBA students and alumni are engaged in leadership at every level throughout our community and beyond,” said Peggy Jackson, MHR, SPHR, Career, Leadership and Team Development Consultant. “Getting there is no accident. I enjoy providing the guidance and the tools needed for the journey.
