Who we are and What we doCareer development, is a life-long process, and the mission of CMS is to provide support to OSB students as they discover and make optimal use of their knowledge, skills, and interests in the pursuit of a meaningful and purposeful career.
Trainings Fullbridge U – a unique blended-learning experience that introduces students to professional and career-readiness skills through authentic workplace scenarios and team-based activities. The 8-week program provides undergraduates with the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of core skills such as effective teamwork, problem solving, project planning, and design thinking. Students will also develop an individual career roadmap, LinkedIn profile, and submission-ready resume. Because of the blended online and in-person nature of the program, learners build critical remote-working and time-management skills as they work together to complete team-based projects effectively and efficiently.
Workshops CMS holds a series of workshops and trainings for its students in order to prepare them to enter the workforce with full confidence and equip them with the necessary professional skills to survive and strive in a working environment. Each workshop is designed to focus on a set of specific career-related skills tailored to fit today’s market demands.
