We offer the same premium services, career planning and resources to all students. Here’s what’s different for Specialized Masters students:
Specialized Masters Students The Weston Career Center enhances professional development and job-search skills by helping students explore new markets, update résumés and refine interviewing skills. We’ll help position skill sets and establish a career action plan to prepare for a successful career path. For more information, see SMP Programs.
The Weston Career Center also assists corporate recruiters looking to hire Olin students for full-time positions, part-time positions and summer internships.
During the fall, the Weston Career Center delivers a series of career preparation sessions (Career Boot Camps) whose content includes résumés, networking, cover letters, business communication and interviewing. The sessions also involve participation by people from the business community representing various industries.
The combination of tactical and strategic elements is intended to provide students with a strong foundation of career preparation with expanded knowledge of career opportunities that suit their interests and experience.
Student Club Engagement
In partnership with Olin student organizations, the Weston Career Center co-sponsors industry-specific panels, workshops, and site visits to various cities to provide students the opportunity to meet with industry leaders and hiring managers, as well as attend networking receptions with business school alumni and recruiting contacts.
The career services staff work hard to keep in touch with alumni around the world. Olin alumni are on campus frequently to conduct mock interviews, serve as guest speakers and program panelists, and act as mentors through the Weston Career Center’s ProNet contact database or social media (e.g., LinkedIn).
