An investment in the Carson Center for Student Success helps business students receive unrivaled educational support services and gain a competitive advantage by developing the professional skills expected in today’s workforce. According to the 2018 NACE Job Outlook Survey, 100% of employers rank professionalism as an essential need in new employees, yet only 42.5% of recent graduates nationwide were ranked as proficient. The Carson Center is dedicated to assisting students in their professional growth and ensuring that Carson Cougs stand out.
These critical services include:
- Professional development (including advice on résumés, interviewing tips, job/internship search assistance, and goal setting)
- Timely academic advising and tutoring in many business courses (high GPA is important in many industries’ hiring decisions)
- Faculty-led study abroad opportunities (multicultural fluency is also rated as an important competency by NACE)
- Networking with industry professionals (including the CougsFirst event in Seattle, and on-campus events such as Career Networking Nights)
