Visit the CFE website at westliberty.edu/centerforentrepreneurship.
- JOIN OUR EFFORT – Business leaders in our local area and beyond are an important source of input to keep our programs relevant and up-to-date. Below are two ways that local businesspeople are helping:
- Mock Interviews – Upper-level students have the opportunity to hone their employment-seeking skills by participating in a mock interview with real hiring managers, which helps them prepare…and allows employers to get a look at the student employment pool. Read more about the mock interview process in the Spring 2011 issue of our news magazine, Business Focus. If you would like to participate as a mock interviewer, please contact our Placement Coordinator.
- Business Advisory Board – The dean has also enlisted the service of an active advisory board, comprised of business leaders from the local community. The advice of the board helps to shape our programs and ensure that we are providing the quality education you expect from our recruits. Contact Dean Loren Wenzel with comments or suggestions.
