The Benefits of Joining the Student Eagle Executive Society
Five Big Reasons to Join the Student Eagle Executive Society
When you go through a business program, you gain more than just an education. You also gain an alma mater. As you look back on your college or business school experience, you want to be able to say that you made the most of your program. If you’re studying at Georgia Southern’s College of Business, joining the Student Eagle Executive Society is a great way to ensure that you’ll be able to do that. Here are five of the biggest benefits of membership.
Everyone agrees that taking advantage of networking opportunities during college or grad school is absolutely essential. While there are a lot of ways to do that on campus and off, one of the best is by joining the Student Eagle Executive Society. You’ll enjoy opportunities to interact with successful alumni and leaders from businesses in the area and from around the state.
It’s simply easier to succeed in business when you have excellent communication skills. The Student Eagle Executive Society offers students great opportunities to build their communication skills while they earn their business degrees. One of the most exciting is the annual Golf Outing, where students have the opportunity to hit the links to learn business etiquette on the golf course, perfect their golf swing and hone their communication and negotiation skills.
The right mentor will support your success while you’re in school and can help you develop future career opportunities, too. That means finding the right mentor is crucial. Thankfully, it’s easy for Student Eagle Executive Society members to do just that. When you join, you get access to College of Business alumni so that you can contact potential mentors. Through E-visors, you can identify long-term mentors and ask for short-term help with interviews and résumé critiquing.
Schooling on Etiquette
Knowing the right etiquette is essential in the business world. Important as it is, etiquette can also be intimidating. That’s why the Society hosts an annual Etiquette Dinner. During this gathering, members have the opportunity to practice etiquette and social skills with professionals from the local business community. It’s a fun but practical way to master basic etiquette.
No business school experience is complete without internships and other learning and service opportunities. The members of the Student Eagle Executive Society participate in a wide variety of educational enrichment activities. Direct access to alumni means members also enjoy great internship opportunities. Of course, internships and events are great for online students who want to get out and meet other students, too.
