Competition for employment after graduation is challenging. As Peter Cappelli of the Wall Street Journal observes, “With an abundance of workers to choose from, employers are demanding more of job candidates than ever before. They want prospective workers to be able to fill a role right away, without training or ramp-up time.” ZIPD is here to prepare you to successfully compete and to give you the extra skills necessary to “hit the ground running.” In addition to seminars on resume writing, interviewing, etiquette and building a portfolio you will develop soft skills, learn how to navigate a corporate meeting or a business luncheon and how to network. You can expect to graduate as a polished professional with a resume and portfolio that accurately reflect and showcase your skills and abilities. This program is just one more way the College of Business helps prepare you to succeed.
