Preparing for your first job starts the moment you start college. As a business student, you’ll gain knowledge and learn new skills during your academic career. Make sure that you’ve also got a career strategy and a professional toolbox — so that when your senior year arrives, you’re informed, prepared, and polished.

Career and Professional Development Course. There’s no better way to get fully prepared for your job search than enrolling in the one-credit Career and Professional Development Course (Bus Adm 300). You’ll gain the skills necessary to enter the job market, including professional correspondence, resume writing, interviewing and networking skills, and professional etiquette. Taught by our career professionals in tandem with industry experts and faculty, this is a great step toward making you “career ready.”

Personal Consultations. Our staff of career professionals is available for one-on-one meetings to help you think through how your interests, strengths, and goals relate to your career path.

Career Fairs. The Lubar School offers an annual Career Fair each February with more than 70 companies in attendance. In addition, career fairs focused on each major are available to students in the Career Course. The campus career center also offers an All Majors Career Fair each fall.

Internships. Internships provide great work experience to make you more marketable to employers. Most business internships are paid, and you can work part-time during the semester and up to full-time during the summer. You may even have the option of receiving academic credit for your work.

La Macchia Enterprises Entrepreneur Internship Program.  If you’re wondering what it takes to build and grow a business, this is the internship program for you. Roll up your sleeves and work on a meaningful project over one semester — and get some “face time” with the entrepreneur who started the company.

On-Campus Interviews. Talented Lubar graduates are always in high demand. A wide range of companies visit the Lubar School each year to conduct on-campus interviews with our students. Many of those employers also offer campus information sessions to help you gain insight into the company and the position available. To be eligible to participate, please register with your UWM credentials to be directed to Handshake.

Job Postings. Throughout the year, check out the Employment Opportunities board in Career Services to learn about current opportunities for internships, part-time positions, and full-time placements.

Alumni Networking. Lubar School of Business Alumni Chapter holds regular events, including some designated specifically for networking with current students. Our alumni are 30,000 strong and a great professional resource for you
