Once you get your MBA, you face the all-important task of finding a job in the fiercely competitive post-MBA market. Taking full advantage of your school's career placement services is an essential tool in your search. But online MBA grads often live too far from campus to make use of the full range of services offered at the university's career center. Universities offering online programs are beginning to address this problem by offering web-enabled job search seminars, resume workshops and interview training to graduates of their online MBA programs. Learning about what career services are offered to online students should be an important step in choosing an online MBA program. To find out what services are offered by the universities you are considering, visit their web sites and look for links to "career services" or "job placement services." If you have questions about what you find there, be sure to follow up with a phone call to the career center.
