Getting Started

The CMC is in your corner.
Our work begins with you "Day 1".

Simon was an innovator of the “Day 1” process, which allows us to begin working with you well before you even arrive on campus. Through Day 1, you will:

Day 1 Logo

  • Explore career interests
  • Research options that fit your background and goals
  • Work on personal branding and enhance your social media presence

Much of our most important career content is available online. You will receive access to these materials prior to Orientation and will have a chance to explore and prepare deliverables so you can hit the ground running when you arrive.

Day 1 includes:

  • Completing self- and market-assessment
  • Researching tools and online career resources and databases
  • Developing your “pitch”
  • Positioning materials including résumé, cover letter, outreach emails, LinkedIn profile, etc.
  • Exploring international resources

Consistent Communication

We work with you as you are moving through the online “Day 1” content, helping you to stay on track and suggesting additional resources related to your interests. We also reach out to you regularly with information about programs that occur (either virtually or in person) during the spring and summer that may assist you in your career exploration and preparation. Opportunities include:

FT MBA Orientation

  • UR Simon weekend (admitted student event)
  • CMC webinars
  • National Career Fair early deadlines (for programs that begin in late July and go through the fall)
