Executive Partners is a group of mostly retired business executives who volunteer their time to share with Business School students at William and Mary the advantages of experience not learned in the classroom. Such assistance is given to individuals one-to-one in many areas, including resume writing, deportment, and strategies to employ while being interviewed, such as "ask, don't tell".
A preview of what lies ahead for a graduate hoping to start at the bottom and work his way up in management, from someone who has climbed the "rock wall" himself, is invaluable. "Stretch" is the advice that a candidate needs to hear. Usually you will reach the next foothold, sometimes you will fall. Get up and resume the climb, with a surer foot than before.
The School of Business is lucky to have this corps of exceptionally qualified volunteers in every professional area. They share the credit for the number of successes that the school's graduates have enjoyed over the years..
