Updated Career Resources for Alumni
Career Services team continues to listen to the requests of our
alumni! With the launch of our newest service, the
Executive/Career Coach Referral Program, we added a
resource to the current Career
Navigator tools for alumni facing more complex Career and
professional development concerns. The Navigator offers a scope of
programs covering the four general career areas: assessment,
research, job search and networking. Last fall we upgraded to a new
Board platform that now averages 350+ openings, has over 2300
employers in the database, offers easy notifications about job
matches and an easier posting format for Alumni employers. We have
also upgraded the BRUnet interface by adding a LinkedIn connection,
Concentration and Careers area. BRUnet
has increased members to 5500 and is growing daily!
As alumni uncover career development
issues, strive to obtain leadership goals and encounter work
environment challenges they needed a resource to assist with these
growth opportunities and the obtainment of career satisfaction. The
use of an Executive or Career Coach enables our alums to move their
careers to the next level. Our office is proud to offer a referral
service to our alumni of a diverse, qualified pool of coaching
referrals for almost any alum looking for career or executive
It is exciting to see what a great
wealth of coaching talent is available within the alumni community
offering a range of geographic locations, educational backgrounds and
professional experiences. Our coaches have an educational background
that not only includes coaching training but also graduate education
in a variety of fields such as psychology, business, counseling and
organizational development. Their experience touches such fields as
media, academia, manufacturing, healthcare, finance entrepreneurship
and non-profits. To further increase the accessibility of this
program to all alums we procured coaches who are at ease and some
quite prefer to work telephonically. Now our alumni from smaller
cities, rural areas or remote countries have access to the same
coaching talent as those from major metropolitan areas.
We also recognized that with so many
people struggling in this economy it is not only important to find a
great provider but also one with an affordable price tag. To further
aid our alumni in their career development, we have arranged with the
providers a special pricing package for their fellow alums.
We hope you will check out our new
program and advertise it to the alums in your area. If you hear of
alums who are working on their personal or professional branding,
struggling with moving to the next professional level or are
exploring a career move, please let them know about our referral
