How long will this program take?
The Career Management Program is delivered in two phases.

  1. WSBT 5000: Career Success for the 21st Century. This is a nine-week, 1 credit hour course that is delivered online.
  2. Optional 12-Month Career Management Program: After completing the one credit hour course, you can continue your career development by taking advantage of Right Management’s 12-month program, compliments of Webster University. This program provides you with access to best-in-class services and resources, including a professional career coach who understands your industry and will work with you to help you articulate and realize your goals.

When should I begin this program?
It is recommended that you enroll in the program during the last half of your graduate degree coursework.  This approach will enable you to compete the course and begin the 12-month program prior to completing your graduate degree.

Will I be able to work with a career coach who understands my industry?
Yes. Right Management’s career coaches have experience supporting professionals across all industries and across all levels of an organization. The coaches and the program’s materials will help you research and navigate your industry.

I am a current graduate student, how do I participate?
Begin by registering for WSBT 5000: Career Success for the 21st Century with your Connections account.

Will this program give me a completed résumé?
Yes. A competitive, best-in-class résumé is available as an outcome of your program and is accomplished through a combination of one-on-one coaching and Right Management’s online resources.

All of my experience has been in the military. Now that I am working toward my graduate degree, how will this program help me transition into a civilian job?
Right Management has a long history of helping military personnel develop skills that companies today need. From leadership training and discipline to experience with deployment of resources and more, your service to our country provided you with strong skills that companies today need. Under the guidance of a career coach, you will learn how to translate your military experience and the skills you have gained through your graduate degree program into materials and messages that will enable you to secure your next role.

I am looking for my first job. How will this program help me apply my educational background and internship experience after graduation?
Right Management can help you turn the results you have produced in your school work and internships into selling points for a new job. The coaches and resources available through this program will enable you to translate your experience onto your résumé and in your interviewing so that potential employers will see how you can add value to their organizations.

I work for a great company and I enjoy my job. I am getting an advanced degree to help me grow within the organization. Since I am not searching for a new job, why should I participate in this program?
Effective career management is a fluid, on-going process, and this program provides you with the opportunity to work with an experienced career coach to map out your immediate and long-term career goals. Once you have a career action plan, you will be better positioned to take control of your career and achieve those goals. Adding to this benefit, it is to your advantage to maximize these services while earning your graduate degree at Webster University because similar career management services could cost you thousands of dollars if you pursued them in the retail market.

I am an international student. How can this program help me?
Right Management is a global organization with more than three decades of experience working with clients in more than 80 percent of Fortune 500 and more than 70 percent of Fortune Global 500 companies. Your experienced career coach will help you develop a career management action plan that aligns with the industry and geographic area in which you are legally able to work.

I have invested years into a job, but now I want to change careers. How can this program help me with my career change?
Although your current job may not be in line with your ideal career path, you have gained transferable skills that other employers need, and you have accomplishments to prove those skills. Right Management can help you with this process by providing you with a deeper understanding of what you have to offer and how you can express your strengths in words that are transferable to other types of jobs and industries. If you decide changing careers is the right move for you, your career coach will help you transition through each step of the process.
