Once you graduate, you quickly realize that the key to job success is really your network. The hard thing is that the best time to look for a new job and build your network is when you are actually working or are a “passive” job seeker.
If you’re in that 2-5 year experience range and graduated from the Pamplin College of Business you need to get connected with the new Lifelong Career Services program. The beauty of this program is that it combines in-person networking opportunities with partner companies in the Big 4, IBM, and more as well as puts you in a database where experienced-hire recruiters can pick you out.
Whether you are a passive job seeker, someone who is looking to make a move, and especially if you were let go, this program will work for you.
I can speak from personal experience that within a day of connecting with the service, I obtained an interview and job offer with a top 50 accounting firm that better fit my personality and career goals. Imagine what the program can do for you if you get involved and maintain a relationship with VT faculty and companies involved.
The possibilities are endless, I strongly urge you to create a profile and participate in this program.
