Faculty, companies honored for connecting students to careers

Business Career Services (BCS) was excited to announce winners of the 2020-2021 Faculty Career Mentor and BCS Partner Awards this week at the David Eccles School of Business Virtual Awards Ceremony. Winners of this Award series were announced by Assistant Dean Katie Abby.

Seven faculty members and three companies were honored for their efforts connecting students to careers by mentoring students and teaming up with Business Career Services initiatives.

Faculty Career Mentor Awardees were nominated by students for the active role mentors played in career exploration. Students extolled the assistance their teachers provided, noting that faculty had encouraged them, believed in them, and even helped them secure career positions. Faculty Partner Award winner Elizabeth Tashjian was honored for her extensive programming specifically for Finance students.

Finally, BCS recognized three Corporate Partners for their efforts to recruit at the U and provide career-building opportunities and events for students. Corporate Partners have the unique ability to motivate students and provide fresh perspective on student possibilities and futures.

A big thanks to these individuals and organizations for their commitment to student success and the success of the David Eccles School of Business.
