College of Business launches career mentoring program for students

| Carrie Ottum

On Monday, February 13th, the College of Business (COB) hosted a kick-off event for the new Career Advising + Mentoring (CAM) program. It aims to build a career network between UW-Eau Claire COB undergraduates and alumni who have graduated within the last 10 years.

UW-Eau Claire alumni provided tips, advice, and insight on how to build a career network and develop hard and soft skills employers value during the panel discussion. 

"When I was a student at UWEC, I noticed how helpful alumni and other community leaders were with their positions and within their industry," says Kaylie Bernard '20, double majored in finance and operations and supply chain management. 

"I am very excited to be able to have that same opportunity and be able to give career advice, coach through interviews, or even review resumes and job applications."

Students interested in participating in the CAM program can complete the online form or contact Carrie Ottum
