The Office of Career Services (OCS) MBA Career Coaching team provides guidance for every single student in pursuit of career development and/or conducting a job search. Our career coaches have worked in higher education and in industry and bring their professional perspectives to the work they now do with students. Coaches offer a web of support to students as they position themselves for entry-level and next-level roles across industries and functions.
One-on-one coaching support includes: clarification of career targets; building a strong value proposition; embedding that value proposition in your resume, cover letters, LinkedIn profile and interview stories; developing a networking plan; reviewing search correspondence; preparing and practicing for interviews; and negotiating job offers.
A Co-Active Coaching Partnership
Each of you has individualized career goals and aspirations and your coach will be your partner in your career development during your time at Smith. Along the way, your career coach will be dedicated to meeting you where you are in your career journey and facilitating your way forward. The coaching relationship is confidential and based on the unconditional belief in your authentic and valuable contributions to business and society. A co-active coaching model requires that both sides of the partnership participate. Below are the mutual expectations and commitments.
