MBA-PM Career Management Workshops
"Anybody engaging in a job search or preparing for graduation without having attended at least a few of these workshops is severely limiting their potential. The discussion and activities on resume structure, patterns of persuasion, and interview evaluations are something every student should be exposed to before graduating (and much earlier if possible!)."
— Nathan Erwin,
No doubt part of your decision-making process to join a top-ranked MBA program included a desire to move ahead in your career. If this is your goal, it is imperative that as you begin enhancing your technical skills (through your classes), you simultaneously begin mastering the skills needed to secure your dream job. These skills include writing a powerful resume, outperforming your competition in the interview, expanding your network, and negotiating masterfully. Topics such as these are covered in both on-site and recorded workshops available to you once you join the Tippie MBA-PM Program. Don't delay starting this training because you never know when an opportunity may come your way, and leveraging these skills will take time.
Don't have time to attend a workshop in person? Consider investing one hour at a time and place of your choice!

- Become a SMART Interviewee: Learn how to maximize your time in front of the potential employer, learn what to say and what not to say, and discover how to tell your story effectively. Find out how interviewers come up with their questions and the difference between a good answer and a better one.

"CareerLeader was extremely helpful, as it is very comprehensive, insightful, and full of 'extra' information."
