First year participation is STRONGLY encouraged (After all, the 10s will be running this show next year and I expect that this will be a great chance to start thinking about how they would like to run the show.)Constraints
A similar activity should be repeated every year
A similar activity should be repeated every semester
The fact that participation was "mandatory" was a key driver in my club\'s participation.
The possibility of extra funding for my club was a key driver in my club\'s participation.
I see how one or more ideas raised in these presentations could be applied to my club
I will attempt to use one or more of these ideas in my club
Additional participation of first year MBA students/rising club leadership would enhance the value of this activity
Should this activity be repeated next fall semester, there is a better time to do it (please use the comment field below to offer any recommendations).Compeition Survey
Please enter any additional comments/recommendation you might have about this event:
I am confident that the First Year students in my club have learned the skills (interviewing/resume/networking) needed to get them desirable jobs
I am confident that the Second Year students in my club have learned the skills (interviewing/resume/networking) needed to get them desirablejobs
I am satisfied with the support (financial and otherwise) I receive from the GBA for my club\'s activities and goals
I am satisfied with the support (financial and otherwise) I receive from the Program Office for my club\'s activities and goals
I am satisfied with the support (financial and otherwise) I receive from the CMC for my club\'s activities and goals
I would be interested in working with the Program Office to identify new mechanisms to secure offers for both the first and second years in my club
I could see a value in the Program Office conduction a survey of first year students to identify Job Skills (interviewing/resume/networking) that they are not comfortable with.
If such a survey was conducted, as a Career Club leader, I would like to see the responses from First Years in my clubClub Satisfaction Survey

A GMA Presentation
Goizueta Marketing Association
As the GMA Leadership, we established an action plan that would address these challenges directly, while complimenting CMC offerings, in order to best prepare marketing students for internship and full-time opportunities.
Last year, 2nd-year marketing students had to rely on informal conversation to gain perspective on each other\'s internship experiences. As a result, they had trouble deciding where to apply for full-time positions.
In addition, 1st-year students were curious to learn from 2nd-years about their internship experiences as well as how they obtained their offers.
Survey students on needs, pre and post events, for continuous improvement
