We're gearing up for the summer after a great spring semester here at Rockhurst University!
The goal of Rockhurst University's Career Services office is to ensure that we're supporting students success as they begin their career journey. One particular highlight for this past semester came via a partnership with Helzberg School of Management faculty member, Erin Standley, for our Spring Mock Interview Day. The day hosted five employers and 45 students in a mock interview setting.
This spring semester's co-op program hosted 12 students through their internship experience. Students had varying majors from accounting, finance and economics, English and marketing. We saw partnerships with State Street, CliftonLarsonAllen, The Disney College Program, Department of Homeland Security and more. Please see all our intern updates from this semester in our previous post.
The summer co-op program currently has 12 students preparing for summer internships from areas of applied mathematics, marketing, biology and physics of medicine, and finance and economics.
We also joined the Overland Park Chamber of Commerce. We're excited for the new business connections this partnership will bring and how we can connect them back to our students. This move allows us to continue looking for new opportunities and expanding our reach across the KC metropolitan area.
This will be our last post for the RU Career Ready blog as we are transitioning to a new platform on the Rockhurst University website. Stay tuned to our web page for updates on the blog and for exciting new content from our partner NACE, student intern updates and more!
