Discover how Weatherhead can help you position yourself for the career you desire after graduation.
Weatherhead equips undergraduate students with the knowledge and skills needed to realize career aspirations, but our role does not end there. A vast array of university resources and services exist to assist undergraduates with interest assessment, career exploration, career planning and decision making, and finding internships and full-time employment in such areas as:
- Public accounting, including Big 4 and regional/local firms
- Management or digital consulting firms
- Banking and other financial service firms
- Or varied industries as analysts or management trainees
Preparing through Action
Career preparation begins at Weatherhead during the sophomore year via ORBH 250 – Leading People (LEAD I), a course that covers fundamental organizational behavior topics that focus on how individuals can be their best and develop positive relationships at work. Students develop tools such as self-awareness about their learning styles and values in order to foster emotional intelligence. Students also learn about motivation, decision-making, and building and maintaining connections with others. Finally, students lay the foundation for career development by combining their knowledge with research on career options and identifying skills to be successful in their future job searches.
CWRU’s affiliations with hundreds of companies, non-profit organizations, and government agencies in Cleveland and around the world make it easy to gain work experience. Summer internships and semester-long co-op (practicum) opportunities abound, and our Action Learning course for seniors includes our distinctive “consulting boot camp”; students follow this intensive experience up by putting into practice all that they have learned in a real-life consulting project for a local organization.
