CESR has begun offering MBA students a program to help them identify and obtain careers at the growing intersection of Impact and Business. In partnership with Walk of Life Consulting, an international career coaching program focused solely on environmental, sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) fields, CESR has committed to providing the tools for its students to launch into these business roles after graduating. The Impact Career Coaching Program consists of four webinar training sessions: “The Impact Jobs Market & Targeting,” “Translating Skills into Impact Achievements,” “Building Your Online Brand,” and “Networking for Impact Success.” Students participating in the program are supplemented with information specific to their professional and personal interests to round out the career advising and placement services offered throughout Leeds and CU.

This program takes place in the fall semester prior to the Impact Career Trek to San Francisco, to prepare students to meet with companies in the Bay Area, such as: Google, Intel, PG&E, Clorox and Facebook. The program has provided socially impact minded business students with a great channel to continue their achievements as future alumni.
