eCareerCoach is a new online program that connects current business students with alumni and industry professionals to receive valuable industry advice. The program operates completely online so it allows both coaches and students to use the system without needing to arrange a time to meet in person. This also allows international coaches or students on exchange to participate from where ever they are.
eCareerCoach is designed to facilitate quick interactions which allow students to gain valuable information and the coaches to share their advice and tips without the requirement of a long term commitment.
What is the benefit to me?As a student it can be difficult to know what to do next or if you are on the right track with your career goals. This program allows you to connect with up to three coaches in your area of interest and gain current and reliable advice for your career journey. This could help you choose your major, decide what internships or industry groups to join, and allow you to start connecting with the people in your industry.
The benefits do not just exist for students though. Alumni and industry looking to reconnect and give back to the next generation are able to get involved without needing to commit a significant amount of personal time to do so. You can improve your coaching skills, connect with students who may be potential future employees and raise your professional profile. You may also wish to connect and network with the other coaches participating in the program. This can be done online via the same process of connecting with a student.
