Work that business card.
Don’t be surprised when we hand you a set of TCU business cards when you first hit campus. You’ll need them because your career preparation will be in full swing. Your personal career coach will already be helping you refine your career goals, appraise the marketability of your current skills, develop a target company list and plot the pathways to your goals.
The Neeley School’s network of 15,000 alumni stretches around the globe. After proving themselves in so many stand-and-deliver experiences, our students emerge tested and tough — and ready to tackle any job at any company. No wonder more than 35 companies sign up to meet TCU’s new talent even before classes start.
TCU’s career coaching starts early and equips you with job-search tools and career-advancement strategies to guide you through a lifetime. So how does TCU push your career ahead?
- TCU helps pay your travel costs to the nation’s biggest MBA national career conferences, and it sends along career coaches to staff the TCU “war table” and to help you prepare for your next interview.
- Student clubs work with career services to plan trips to Chicago, Houston and elsewhere to learn about the companies they’ve targeted — and to get a foot in the door.
- If your career interests lie off the corporate path, TCU can help you reach them. Inspired by an MBA trip to South Africa, Claire Bufe manages marketing and PR for Mercy Ships, a floating hospital that provides health care in Africa. Read her blog.
- You’ll build personal bonds that pay off down the line. Through the Neeley Connections program, Ryan Long bonded with an Intechra exec, who had no job available but gave him personal referrals to three other companies.
