Resources

ON-CAMPUS RECRUITING

The Michigan Ross Career Development Office (CDO) brings recruiters from top companies on campus to meet with graduating MBA students.  As a Ross MBA, you can engage in the formal on-campus recruiting process once you have decided to invest the time and resources and have completed CDO’s required preparation. You can work with the coaches in the CDO to determine if this is right for you.  If you do decide to engage in the process, we will help you present your best self.
 

PERSONAL COACHING

Meet virtually with a CDO expert who is specifically dedicated to Online MBA students and is skilled in working with students in your situation.
 

CAREER SELF ASSESSMENT

If you’re not sure what your ideal career is, our Career Leader self-assessment program and follow-up meeting with a coach will offer guidance and direction.
 

LINKEDIN PROFILE REVIEW

LinkedIn is more important than you might think. The professional staff in the CDO can help you leverage your profile to its best.
 

RESUME REVIEWS

The resume that got you into business school will likely not be the same resume that gets you hired afterwards. You can get personal attention and advice on your resume from our professional CDO staff.
 

RESEARCH ASSISTANCE

Chat with a Michigan Ross staff librarian, who can help you research industries, job functions, and specific companies you may want to target.
 

WEBINARS

Sessions are focused on specific career areas of interest and are often delivered via webinar to accommodate distance and work schedules. Sample topics include:

  • Self assessment for career planning
  • Resume development
  • Interview preparation
  • Job search strategies
