School of Business Clubs

The University of Indianapolis School of Business clubs are demonstrating a forward-thinking approach by actively building bridges to their professional futures. This initiative involves not just attending networking events, but forging genuine connections with established business leaders in the Indianapolis area.The marketing club took the initiative by planning a dynamic pitch contest at High Alpha. Senior executives from the firm joined university professors on the judging panel, creating a valuable opportunity for students to showcase their skills and gain feedback from industry leaders. In a separate event, the real estate club hosted a panel discussion featuring a group of industry professionals. The panel provided insights into the exciting world of real estate, its various facets, and the chance to network with the professionals themselves. Finally, the supply chain club leverages its partnerships with local companies to arrange educational tours of their supply chain facilities. These tours offer students first hand exposure to real-world operations and a deeper understanding of the intricacies of supply chain management. By stepping outside their comfort zones and engaging in meaningful conversations with seasoned professionals, these students gain valuable insights into the realities of the business world. This proactive strategy goes beyond simply preparing for the future; it equips them with the knowledge, networks, and confidence to thrive in the dynamic and ever-evolving landscape of the modern business environment.

As you begin to start taking steps toward pursuing your professional ambitions, it is important to build and maintain a strong resume that has the power to set you apart from your fellow competition. With this being said, the process of starting a resume can be difficult and some find it challenging to know where to begin. Before diving into the items that are important to include, it is important to understand that your resume is, more often than not, the first opportunity you have to “sell” yourself to your employer. Your resume is your opportunity to prove that you would be a good fit for the role based on your past experiences, skills, and other qualities. The first thing that you need to highlight in your resume is your name and contact information. Your name should be large and bolded so it is easy for employers to see. Next, you need to include your academic-related information. This includes, but is not limited to, your major, GPA, academic awards and scholarships, certifications, and relevant coursework. Since your resume can get long quickly, I find it beneficial to highlight relevant coursework that is most related to the role I am applying to. Arguably one of the most important sections, work and leadership experience, should follow your academic information. This section should highlight extracurricular experiences you have had outside of the classroom. This could include places of employment, internships, club leadership positions, and more. The last section of your resume can be used to briefly list your skills and volunteer experiences. It is a good rule of thumb to view your potential employer’s website and include some of the skills they are requesting. Resumes differ from person to person, and that is okay! Just remember, this is your first opportunity for your employer to determine if you would be a good fit for their position; so, it is important for you to highlight the things that make you the best person for the job.

What is Business Professional?

Picture this: you walk into a room and everyone seems to have gotten the “memo” about what to wear… well, everyone except you. You are there, standing in jeans and a polo, thinking you knew what business casual was, but feeling extremely underdressed. Whether we like to admit it or not, we have all been there at one time or another. Even myself, a tried and true business major who’s worked in Corporate America has been in that position before. So, what is the difference between everyday wear, business casual, and business professional? Well, the answer, short and sweet, is easiest when you think about a suit and instead of adding to it, subtracting from it. A suit, which should be dark black, navy, or gray, will consist of dress pants, a blouse for the ladies versus an undershirt and dress shirt for the men, and a matching suit jacket. Did you catch the most important thing there? Matching. Yes, sometimes this means having to use the harsh lighting at the local department store to make sure the blacks match each other (if you are buying suit separates), but trust me: DO IT! The worst feeling, besides being underdressed, is thinking your suit matches, when it doesn’t. So there you have it, business professional is a suit, an undershirt with a blouse or dress shirt, paired with a matching tie (for men), dress shoes, and dark-colored socks. For women, heels or flats, typically black, are the best way to go. Then, to create a business casual look, simply discard the suit jacket! And voila, you are ready to dress to impress! And by golly, you will!
