Student Professional Mentorship Program Built to Prepare and Connect Students to Viable Career Opportunities
Woodbury’s School of Business Advisory Board presents its fall 2021 Rotating Executive in Residence (EiR) program to offer business and other interested Woodbury students access to local professionals for insights, career advice, and mentorship. Ten Board members from a wide range of Los Angeles-area companies will present and hold a series of one-on-one sessions with students to answer career-focused questions. Along with sharing their valuable experience, they will also help students establish connections in the industries in which they work, including entertainment, real estate, banking, accounting, investment, non-profit industries, and others.
The EiR program has been successfully implemented since fall 2017 and is now entering its fifth consecutive year. The benefits of this program have been described in various outlets, including AACSB’s prominent BizEd Magazine.
The EiR program is just one of the many ways the School of Business Advisory Board engages with the Woodbury student community throughout the year. Other well-received initiatives include the annual Creative Minds Conference, a fall-semester networking event that entails an exhilarating challenge for students to display their creative selling skills; and a spring-semester Career Preparation event in which students are challenged to present a personal elevator pitch, engage in a mock job interview, and prepare a professional resume to boost confidence and career readiness. During the 2020-2021 academic year, the Advisory Board also participated in a monthly virtual event titled, “Jump Start Your Career,” where students were encouraged to ask questions about job preparation, resume content, and other professional-related topics.
A special thanks to our School of Business Advisory Board members for their time, commitment, and dedication to Woodbury student success!
