Offering a "Business Link" to Students
"How can my student find an internship or a job?" This is perhaps the most frequent question that parents of School of Business students ask.
If your student doesn't know where to get started -- he or she is in luck. The Business-Link Professions Program, within the School of Business, is a great resource and guidance for students embarking on the internship and job search process.
The Business-Link program focuses on three key needs: developing resume skills and confidence, gaining insight on trends within various industries, and making personal and professional connections with alumni and employers.
While the Business-Link Professions Program is devoted to helping students develop the skills to strengthen their career paths, there's no better resource for students than our parents. There are several quick and easy ways for you to have an impact in helping us create strong pipelines for internship and career opportunities.
Please partner with us in helping to launch the career of your child and of other IC students. Sign up today to participate in the following:
- Mentoring and career advice for current students
- Providing internships for current students
- Providing job opportunities for graduating students
- Providing job-shadowing opportunities
