“The Career Services for the MRED program helped me find my dream job. From the time I was accepted to the program, they continually reached out to me to make sure my resume was polished, and my career was heading in the right direction. They even reached out directly to me for job opportunities that I seemed to be a good candidate for. Before I graduated, they introduced me to my now current employer and helped me polish my resume and prepare for my interview to land that job. Thanks to their help I am now working for an amazing company! Every student in the Business School should take advantage of the free career advice and coaching that they offer!”
