Fridays at the Huntsman School are dedicated to accelerating careers, whether through workshops on resume writing and interview prep, or listening to professionals from different industries discuss career opportunities, or the chance to rub elbows with executives through our unique Leadership Forum series.
"Focus Fridays have given me the opportunity to network with professionals in my desired career path. Each speaker has taught a new, valuable lesson that is applicable for any major. I have been able to stay in contact with and receive great advice from many of the professionals that have visited. These connections are a huge help to me as I search for my career. I truly believe in The Huntsman Difference!"
-- Baily Boaz, Marketing Major
"Resume building at Focused Friday has given my resume a professional touch that makes it stand out. Working alongside career coaches who have experience in the professional world has given me insights into what companies are really looking for. Leadership panels have given me the opportunity to get to know professionals from companies that I am interested in working for. It helps me understand the culture and work ethic from different companies, making it easier to decide what I want when looking for a job. Having breakfast with Charlie Denson, former Nike CEO, was an experience that I will never forget. Focused Fridays develop career skills that you just can’t learn in a classroom."
-- Courtney Aller, Management Information Systems Major
“Focused Fridays have allowed me to see the principles and ideas learned in the classroom in real life application. I am able to hear from business professionals about their paths to their current positions, and what they do on a daily basis. Which allows me to be able to make a future roadmap for what I want do and who I want to be. It has been an invaluable experience to learn from the amazing individuals who speak to us every Friday.”
