Lacy School Career Development

Building Careers a Semester at a Time.

As a business student, you have an incredible support system behind you. You’ll receive support from your academic advisor, the entire career development staff (including a personal executive career mentor), and the Butler alumni network.

Throughout your four years, you will follow the Butler Blueprint—our career readiness program designed to help you learn about yourself, develop your strengths, and give you mentoring opportunities and experiences that set you apart from your competition.

In your first year, you'll focus on self-discovery. You'll complete the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and attend alumni panels and career events. Sophomore year focuses on career exploration and professional networking through a variety of workshops and more career events. Students work with their career mentor to develop their resume and identify their skills, interests, values, and accomplishments. Junior year focuses on internship and job search skills. You'll  develop a personal internship and job search strategy, prepare for interviews, and broaden your network. In your senior year you'll learn about personal financial management, how to evaluate job offers, and develop career success strategies.

Internships

Students interview for and complete two internships for credit, with guidance from a career mentor. The Lacy School of Business has a network of regional and global employers and many internships result in post-graduate employment. Learn More
