Volunteer with students

Alumni can volunteer to sit on a panel, be a guest speaker, or mentor students as they begin their career.

The Career Advisor for MMS (CAM) program began in 2010 with 40 MBA alumni providing career support to approximately 100 MMS students. Over the years, MMS students have found the insights and expertise of these alumni to be beneficial to their job searches and future careers. 

For many MMS students, this will be the first time they have written a formal resume, or cover letter and/or conducted a professional interview. The CAM program helps to prepare MMS students for their career search by conducting resume reviews, cover letter reviews, and mock interviews.

Responsibilities:

  • To assess an MMS student's interpersonal skills, interview readiness, and areas for improvement.
  • To complete an evaluation of each student's readiness and interpersonal skills.
  • To prepare and guide MMS students in the networking and mock interview process.

Meetings are usually held via video-conference from August - October unless other arrangements have been made to meet in person. All MBA alumni and MMS alumni who graduated three years prior can hold Career Advisor to MMS positions.
