These managers develop and manage relationships with the health industry and assist students in preparing for interviews and identifying career opportunities. The Haas School career center provides both students and employers with the resources and opportunities needed to successfully match student skills and interests with employer needs.

Students can discuss their current classes, their summer internship choices and potential career opportunities with an experienced professional. They can learn about current, real-world issues in health management. This one-on-one mentoring can be a valuable tool for students to help them in the career choices.
