What is the Career Leadership Conference?

It is a one-day professional development conference focused on educating ECU students on career planning and leadership skills.  The event will take place in Mendenhall Student Center, Saturday February 9th, 2013.

What’s included?

  • Students will receive an ECU leather pad-folio.
  • Career Workshops: Students will learn great tactics for career planning.  The workshops will include valuable information on job searching, resume writing, networking, gaining experience, and so much more!
  • Employer Panel of Hiring Mangers: Experienced professionals will give advice and tips on how to land the job of your dreams!
  • Etiquette Lunch: Students will receive a three-course etiquette luncheon. Not only will it be delicious, but a great chance to network.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn from the best in the business and gain an edge in the job market.  Take advantage of this opportunity that other job seekers only wish they had.  Unlike some information we learn in college, this is something that will be useful in the real world.

#SuitUp and Never Look Down

Think you’re the best dressed in Bate?

Snap a pic of yourself dressed to impress and you could win College for Business gear!

A suit is not just an aggregation of threads that make up a garment, yet a suit is more than that. A suit is an attitude. It’s a mindset. It’s a lifestyle. A suit is the outward appearance of confidence when confidence may be lacking. A suit says you mean business. The simple alteration of one’s appearance can make or break success in a professional endeavor.


East Carolina University’s College of Business is a first-class institution with first-class students and that is something that should be showcased, but we need your help! Next time you are professionally dressed, snap a pic and post it to instagram @ECUCOB for a chance to win some College of Business merchandise. Use the hashtag #suitup to identify your photo.

The best dressed individual each week will receive a cool prize and will be entered to win the end-of-semester grand prize. The winning pictures will also be posted to the CoB’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
