MBA Career Resources

Employer in Residence - Mock Interviews

The Employer in Residence Mock Interview opportunity for MBA students, in partnership with the Career Development Center, can help you to emphasize your strengths and improve on your overall interview skills. Upon request we will pair you with a professional who will develop a scenario for an interview and allow you to self-critique and receive constructive feedback. Our goal is to help you with your next employment opportunity, promotion and career growth overtime.

Career Preparation - Résumé and Cover Letter Development

Our team of professionals will help you develop a résumé that speaks for itself and a cover letter that stands out when you apply for that opportunity. In collaboration with the Career Development Center we will work to customize your résumé and cover letter to emphasize your best attributes to appeal to prospective employers.

Job Shadowing - Career Counseling

The MBA Program provides the opportunity for students to career shadow in several industry areas through a temporary, unpaid exposure to a workplace in an occupational area of interest. In order to take advantage of this opportunity, the MBA director will work to partner the student with a university affiliate that best matches his or her personal and career interests. Students who are interested in this opportunity must go through a selective screening process prior to a match.

Career Empowerment – Networking and Outreach

Throughout the year, William Paterson University hosts numerous events where we welcome employers to campus to showcase our students for employment opportunities. Employers attend career fairs seeking candidates for part-time, community service, summer, internship, and full-time hire. This is a great opportunity to learn more about a specific industry and make face-to-face contacts in business. We encourage our MBA students to attend these campus events to take advantage of our contacts and alumni connections. Below are a few of the key events hosted at William Paterson University for your professional growth and development:

  • Career Fairs hosted by the Career Development Center

Professional Enrichment – Internal Resources for Success

The professional enrichment program is designed to enhance business students’ college education by providing opportunities to meet and network with area specialists; learn from business leaders directly; become involved in work-related activities such as internships, practicum, and job shadowing; and attend various seminars and forums that deal with professional development and/or contemporary work-related issues. We encourage all MBA students to get involved in the many highly successful professional enrichment activities that are offered each year.
