The first step in developing any successful career is to get a clear understanding of your strengths, aptitudes and aspirations. We provide you with access to self-assessment tools that will help you clarify your career direction. Throughout the program, coaches will help you develop and work through a personalized career development plan.
Interview skill development
It may have been a while since you last had an interview. We’ll help you articulate your value and skills to land that job, whether you’re looking to change departments or companies.
Emotional Intelligence Assessment
According to research, emotional intelligence is the strongest predictor of workplace performance—findings show that 90% of top performers have a high degree of emotional intelligence. Additionally, those with a high EQ have the potential to earn $29,000 more a year.
The RocheMartin - Emotional Capital Report (ECR) is a personalized leadership development tool that provides you with a comprehensive interpretation of your leadership potential based on an assessment of your emotional intelligence.
Therefore, all UBC Sauder students take the ECR Assessment as part their career development programming. After completing the assessment, students will meet with a career manager to find out more about how they can leverage and build EQ strengths to help you achieve career success.
One-on-one career coaching
As a UBC IMBA student you will be assigned your own professional career coach. Your coaching relationship begins at orientation, continues throughout your time at UBC Sauder, and carries into your future career. You’ll get one-on-one advice and support to develop your unique professional brand, explore your career options and make powerful connections with potential employers.
