CAREER CONNECTIONS SERIES : DJ SINGLETERRY – Looking Back on GCC

CAREER CONNECTIONS SERIES : DJ SINGLETERRY – Looking Back on GCC

The Goizueta Career Connection was a great experience. Going into it, I was not entirely sure what to expect in regards to interactions and conversations with recruiters/alumni. I think the atmosphere created by the small breakout groups; high percentage of GBS alum by attending firms as well as structured preparation, led through the CMC throughout our Professional Development coursework, all positioned my peers and I for success during the event. It all began with the atmosphere. Students were broken into small groups of 5 or 6 and then rotated around to small tables with typically 2 people from each...

CAREER CONNECTIONS SERIES : MARK THOMAS – The Goizueta Career Connection Event

CAREER CONNECTIONS SERIES : MARK THOMAS – The Goizueta Career Connection Event

Prior to the Goizueta Career Connection—our first foray into the world of formal recruiting—my approach to these events was to keep my head down and hope any faux pas committed went unobserved.

To give everyone a better idea of how it helped me, I’ve provided a brief recap of the event. We spent the first half of the evening rotating through a series of structured...

Elevator pitch. STAR stories. My Story. These are all phrases that ran through my mind as I thought about the upcoming Goizueta Career Connections event. My conversations with alumni and my Career Management Center (CMC) coach all stressed the importance of these and other ways to “sell” yourself to employers, but how that was all supposed to come together was a Scooby Doo worthy mystery to me. I spent some time early on crafting my story, but after an hour without much progress I figured at the very least I was going to have some research on the various...

Career Connections Series : Mark Thomas – Career Preparation

It’s the second week of school. I should be focused on getting to know my classmates, trying not to fall behind in classes, or discovering Atlanta. Instead, I’m rummaging through my closet looking for a suit* because our first career event is in a matter of days. I still don’t know where the quad is and I’m already being asked to focus on the job search. What I thought was two years away is looming only two days away. The romantic in me likes to think that we’re all here for the pure enjoyment of learning. That naïveté is...
