“The career services team helped give me the kind of outside-the-classroom support that was necessary to start a new career path, but less than six months after landing my dream job, my entire division was eliminated. Instead of panicking, I took lessons learned from my counselor to hit the ground running, landing and solidifying an even better position with the same company less than two weeks later.”
– Michael Nestor, MBA ‘10
