One-Year MBA Career Services

The Moore School’s Office of Career Management creates a customized program for each MBA student, allowing you to compete at the highest level during your job search. The program emphasizes skill development and professional best practices for resumes, interviewing, networking and everything else associated with securing an excellent position upon completion of your degree.

For one-year MBA students, the job search begins quickly. That’s why, immediately upon entering the program, you will be assigned to a career advisor who has particular expertise and professional connections in your areas of functional specialization. Most MBA students meet with their advisors regularly until they have accepted an offer. Advisors stay in close touch with recruiters and regularly alert students to new opportunities.

As your job search gets underway, your advisor and our entire team of dedicated professionals will work with recruiters around the world to offer you access to global corporations and prepare you to identify the right opportunities and follow them through to multiple offers.

“What led to my success in finding a full-time position during the fall semester was optimizing career fairs and connections through the University of South Carolina MBA alumni network. It gave me confidence to know that what I’ve done in the past can be leveraged with my MBA to bring value to a company, and that is what I demonstrated in my interview for the position I have accepted.”
