"As an MBA student, the Graduate Career Management Center at William & Mary provided great help in securing my summer internship and my full-time position with my current company. My graduate advisor supported me throughout my two-year program at the Raymond A. Mason School of Business. She continuously reviewed my resume, provided interview tips, communicated about job postings, and invited me to career workshops held in school. Job hunting was never easy for me and I'm grateful to the GCMC team for accompanying me on this journey."

Senior Business Analyst, Capital One

"GCMC has had a profound impact on my professional and personal development during the MBA, and it started before arriving on campus. The availability of my advisor to discuss every detail of this new experience was key to making me feel confident and prepared for the challenges that were coming. The support I had from the team helped me recover faster when I did not land the job. They helped me bounce back, understand where I could improve, and showed me the tools that I should take advantage of - a huge factor that helped me secure a job opportunity three months before graduation. There are no words to define my gratitude towards GCMC. This team marked my MBA experience and life, and I will always look back with joy when I remember crossing the doors of the Career Center. "
