College of Business
The Professional & Career Development Program

Passport Program

Passport ProgramStudents are guided through a structured, four-year career development program that includes two required internships.  Students receive support from a full-time staff, the Butler alumni network, and a personal career mentor.   Career mentors guide the process throughout the four years, meeting individually with students to help clarify business interests, choose a major, job shadow and more.

Students receive stamps on a passport as they progress through the career development program, which includes a variety of activities and requirements such as job fairs, alumni panels, mock interviews, resume writing workshops and more.  A full-time staff assists the students in locating the required internships which often result in full-time employment upon graduation.

In the freshman year, students focus on self-discovery.  They learn more about themselves through assessments such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. They begin working with their personal career mentor, who works with the student throughout the four years at Butler.

In the sophomore year, students focus on career exploration and participate in a variety of activities such as networking workshops and job shadows.  Internships and job search skills are the focus of the student's junior year.  In the senior year, students build on their junior-year work experience in order to finalize their job searches.
