Making contacts/Networking

80 % of jobs are not posted, meaning that most of the jobs out there are through word of mouth. You need to talk to people within your network (family, friends, classmates, professors, neighbors, members of professional organizations, etc.) and let them know you are looking for an internship or full-time job.

Build up your networks by attending career fairs, information sessions and conducting information interviews. To find out more information about networking, please Click Here

Schedule an appointment with a Career Consultant

To make the most of a Career Planning session, it’s good to take a few moments to jot down some things you’d like to focus on with your consultant. No strenuous preparation is necessary for your first meeting, but chances are by the end of your first session you’ll have some things to do. Please make sure you have a copy of your resume with you

To schedule an appointment, please send an email to ruma@lerner.udel.edu

The Lerner College is home to a state-of-the-art financial trading facility, the $1.5 million student-led Blue Hen Investment Club, a student-managed restaurant and hotel, a high-technology development center of a global bank and a start-up experience for students with new business ideas.

Lerner College faculty - like Meryl Gardner, whose research on foods and moods was recently published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology - are thought leaders who command attention from influential business audiences, economists and policy makers.

All Lerner College departments offer discovery learning experiences and emphasize data-based analytics to enrich the student experience. Here, students at Vita Nova, our award-winning restaurant run through HRIM, joined professional chefs and winemakers in hosting a 2014 Mid-Atlantic Wine and Food Festival event.

The Institute for Financial Services Analytics is a collaboration between the Lerner College, UD's College of Engineering and JPMorgan Chase, and hosts events for academics and the business community designed to address consumer analytics and industry applications.

Undergraduate scholarships, made possible through the generosity of alumni and friends, enable us to support promising scholars. Here, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell and his mother, Leni Markell, join recipients of the William Markell Scholarship (center), which benefits students in Accounting and MIS.
