COBA’s on-campus placement office is the central hub for networking and finding a job. Thanks to the office, students learn how to beef up their résumés and professional presence. Then they go on to land jobs and internships at companies including Microsoft, IKEA, and TIAA-CREF (a Fortune 100 company). And they earn master’s and doctoral degrees at places like the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
For Uyen, COBA and its placement office have re-energized the journey she started seven years ago in Hawaii. “Here, there are always people helping you. There are recruiters, mock interviews, résumé builders, and networking opportunities. And it’s all made me a better, more mature professional.”
Now, Uyen is a naturalized U.S. citizen interning at Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. and exploring job offers from the FBI and a local Savannah news station. She’s participated in a global business proposal competition with team members from the Netherlands, Colombia, and Turkey. And she presented a paper she co-authored with a professor and a fellow student at an international business conference. She was also inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma, an international business honor society.
“It’s taken me a long time to come this far. But with my degree from Savannah State, I know I can do anything.” Seriously Impressive
