The Rankin College of Business Backpack to Briefcase program is one more way that we work to ensure our students are ready for career success.
A series of workshops aimed at giving every student the necessary tools for landing an internship or that first career position will be offered in the fall.
In the spring, workshops will be geared toward graduating seniors, providing them with helpful information as they transition into their career.
Each Friday from 8/14 – 11/13 we will have speakers and workshops on professionalism.
