Connect with Students
Looking to build your brand on campus and connect with top talent? The Undergraduate Business Career Center offers a number of ways to connect with students.
- BA 3000 Career Skills Course. Throughout this required course, instructors frequently tap into the knowledge of business professionals.
Share your professional experiences, or what your company or organization is looking for in a potential employee, by speaking in a BA 3000 class.
- Career Workshops. The Undergraduate Business Career Center holds multiple workshops and panels throughout the year, and we are always looking for volunteers to familiarize students with a particular industry and share expert knowledge regarding networking, job searching, and career skills. Opportunities include sponsorship of events, keynote speaking opportunities, and employer panels.
- Future Fright Week. This week-long event gives undergraduate students an opportunity to explore different majors through information sessions presented by faculty and professionals in the industry. Share your experiences by participating in these sessions as industry panelists.
- Mock Marathons. Each fall and spring, the Undergraduate Business Career Center hosts a mock interview marathon, where volunteer interviewers conduct mock interviews with students. Consider volunteering for this event to help students sharpen their interviewing skills.
- Resume Reviews. Help students improve and refine their resumes at this twice-annual event. Volunteers are needed at the beginning of fall and spring semesters.

The Carlson School Undergraduate Mentorship Program gives you an opportunity to contribute your experience and knowledge to students who are exploring career options and professional development opportunities. The program is open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors. As a volunteer mentor, you will be matched with a student based on the student's chosen field and your preference for working with upper or lower division students. The program begins each fall, continues into spring semester, and concludes in mid-April. For more information, visit the Undergraduate Mentorship Program page
Site visits provide a hands-on, realistic look at your organization by giving students a chance to tour your facilities, meet with management, and ask questions. Students often make connections that encourage them to consider your organization in their job search. The Undergraduate Business Career Center organizes site visits to companies in Chicago, New York, San Francisco, and other locations. If you'd like to invite Carlson School students to visit your facility, please connect with one of our Business Development and Employer Relations team members.
