I am a TABSA student from Spain, and I am currently working to receive a dual degree from the Cameron School of Business at UNCW and my home university, Universidad de Valencia, in Marketing Strategy and International Business. Participating in the Cameron Executive Network (CEN) Program has been one of the best things I have done during my time at UNCW. My mentor has been extremely helpful in explaining the job search process in the US. She started by identifying my skills and capabilities as well as areas of improvement to better my position myself in the business world. She coached me in resume and cover letter writing as well as in internship search and interview skills. Due to her help I was able to get an internship in a tech company in Spain. We will continue to work this year to get an internship in the US.
In addition to the professional side, my mentor has been huge support for me as I am far away from my hometown. She is a person who gives me advice, and has kindly introduced me to the American culture and lifestyle.
I highly recommend the CEN program to all business students. You will receive advice from skilled professionals and will expand your knowledge and contacts on the business world.
