Bottom line

The Internship & Professional Development team, has one purpose: To help FAU College of Business students bridge the gap from academia into the professional world.  This will vary from student to student, thus we offer personalized feedback to each student that we work with.  Ongoing individual coaching is offered, where a resume review is just the beginning.  The student's self-marketing is assessed, along with interview skills, social media impact, presentation, existing network, networking abilities, among other things that are considered in the cannon of professionalism, but rarely discussed.  
Once assessed, a plan of action is created focused on addressing the pieces that are found wanting.  Providing realtime tasks that are designed to improve the marketability of the the student's background and presentation.  Workshops, clinics, presentations, are also used to further develop soft skills that may be lacking in addition to the one on one coaching.
