1-on-1 Career Advising

A personal connection helps ensure
you know we're on your team.

Once you have confirmed your enrollment, we reach out to “meet” you virtually. We want to get to know you and your background and introduce you to resources and people who can help with your immediate career questions as well as help you prepare for your field of interest.

MBA Career Consultants

Even before you arrive at Simon you will be assigned to one of our expert MBA Career Consultants. They will help guide you through the Day 1 online career content, work with you on your résumé, target company list, and online presence, and help you interpret the results of your self-assessments. Each of our career consultants is highly experienced and offers career knowledge in numerous functions and industries including consulting, banking, general management, corporate finance, operations, brand management, tax, marketing, HR, media, sales, business development, entrepreneurship, analytics, and technology, among others.

Career consulting is an individualized process, but a typical program looks like this:

  • First Meeting: We get to know you and your background, interests, and career aspirations; we review your self-assessment results, including Career Leader and our own SWOT Analysis, and make recommendations for possible career paths for you to research.
  • Second meeting: We go over the results of your research and discuss various career track options such as finance, marketing, consulting (strategy, operations, technology), or general management for those who are undecided or want to leave their options open.
  • Third meeting: We go over your résumé, sample cover letter, “pitch,” and value proposition that are based on your current area of interest. We'll help you develop an internship or job search action plan including potential leads and companies to consider as well as contacts and alumni to expand your network.

You can come in to the CMC as many times as you wish. You may find just a couple of sessions are enough, or you may like the structure of meetings on a regular basis to help you stay on track. Whatever your preference, we’re here for you and can make appointments in person, via email, or via Skype.
