In an increasingly global job market, college students need more than classroom knowledge to compete. They need practical, real-world experience obtained through internships and leadership opportunities. At West Virginia University’s John Chambers College of Business and Economics, the new Career Studio provides students with the coaching they need to embark on a successful career.
Business school students here will find that the Career Studio is staffed by their fellow students — peer career coaches who have demonstrated success in their own internship or job search. These coaches are also active members in the Chambers College Career Readiness Program and know the skills and competencies that employers are seeking in early talent.
