The Center for Student & Career Services
The UALR College of Business Center for Student & Career Services has a three-tiered focus to serving the needs of students:
1. Recruit students to the College of Business
2. Advise all pre-business and business majors at UALR
3. Assist in career preparedness activities through the Professional Edge Series and career placement for all College of Business students
Recruitment focuses on promoting our undergraduate and graduate level programs to soon-to-be high school graduates, transfer students from 2-year and 4-year institutions and non-traditional students coming back to college after an extended absence. Recruitment requires funds for travel across the state and region, marketing materials, and promotional items for the College of Business.
Advising through the center gives students the advantage of having a professional keep them on track and get them to graduation in the most efficient way possible.
The College of Business provides a Professional Edge Series each semester for students to prepare for the next step upon graduation. The Professional Edge Series includes resume clinics, mock interviews, dress for success fashion shows and business etiquette luncheons. The Series culminates with a speed mixer that matches graduating students with more than twenty-five firms looking to hire immediately.
As you can see, the Center for Student & Career Services is a valuable tool for students at the College of Business. Adequate funding of this center is crucial to continue to serve the needs of our students and the business community in our region.
