This one-day shadow experience occurring over winter break (January 2 – January 13, 2017) matches students with business professionals and alumni to gain insight to their career interests, based on an automated process in BuckyNet.
The program provides students the opportunity to network with professionals, investigate a career-field, clarify career goals and interests, and function within a work environment.
Increase your organization’s visibility among the brightest and most motivated Wisconsin School of Business students at a minimal cost to your companies (students are responsible for travel and lodging).
This program is integrated into the BuckyNet online recruiting system for companies to screen and rank all students for a successful match.
