Forward-thinking students in Business Association at Western Nevada College aren’t waiting until graduation to start the process of searching for a job.

The one-month-old association has arranged a professional development and networking event titled “Before the Job Search” from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday in Marlette Hall in WNC’s Cedar Building.

Scheduled to make presentations at the event are Miya MacKenzie, chief professional officer for Hop & Mae Adams Foundation, as well as Jeff Glass, executive director of the New Entrepreneur Network.

“Of major interest to the students was preparation for a career following school,” said WNC business professor Robert Whitcomb, who is directing Business Association. “Their sense is that one does not just jump into a job search. The first step must be identifying what your interests and abilities are. This requires some self-exploration.”

Whitcomb said the Business Association will generate opportunities for students and support the community’s needs through various projects. Members will gain some of the skills necessary for employment after graduation, including entrepreneurship, résumé writing, interviewing skills and networking.

Business Association is open to all WNC students who are interested in any area of business, as well as WNC alumni and community members.
