CoB Nexus –

Beginning October 1, 2013, the CoB will begin accepting resumes and employment profiles from students who would like to be part of the CoB Nexus.  We will use these resumes to help us recommend students to potential employers.

A nexus is defined as a means of connection or a link; a connected series or group.   The CoB Nexus is being developed to serve as a link between the students, the faculty, and potential employers.

To participate in the CoB Nexus students must do the following:

1) Create a professional resume and submit a printed and electronic copy to Miss Hughes (tlhughes@saumag.edu and BUS 316).

2) Complete a CoB Employment Profile.

Students will be responsible for resubmitting/updating their resume and employment profile each semester.
