At Wake Forest, there is peer tutoring available for calculus, biology, Spanish, and British literature amongst other subjects; so why not for career related topics? Well, now there is.

Five senior business students are volunteering their time to assist underclassmen of all majors in their career development by connecting them with resources during evening hours on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights. These students are called the UBCC Fellows and will be assisting the Undergraduate Business Career Center counselors by sharing their job and internship search experiences, discussing the resources and strategies they used effectively, and examining the different business options available to students. There is one UBCC Fellow representing each of the undergraduate business majors.

  • Steven Millard – Finance
  • Jenny Turner – Business & Enterprise Management
  • Nick Stanzione – Math Business
  • Andrew Russell – Math Finance
  • Megan Mancosh – Accountancy

The UBCC Fellows will be available to answer questions students may have regarding: networking, resumes, interviews, the business school, or just share their experience with job search process. There is no appointment necessary so students are welcome to stop by Manchester 245 on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights from 8:00 – 10:00 PM.

Parents, this is a great resource for your undergraduate student who is hoping to learn more about the career process as well as business career fields. Encourage your first-year or sophomore student to stop by one night to discuss potential career fields and the steps necessary to get there.
