Helping you advance your career to the next level

The Center for Market Readiness and Employment supports your career and professional development by offering tools, resources, coaching, and access to industry professionals to help you achieve your career objectives. Housed in the Student Engagement Suite on the ground level of Farrell Hall, and with representatives in the Wake Forest Charlotte Center, the MR&E Center comprises a team of dedicated professionals who offer career coaching, career development resources, and a range of recruiting and networking events.

“I knew there was a significant amount of work involved with changing careers.  The MRE Center was able to help me identify the careers I wanted to pursue, restructure my resumé, and provide me with the coaching to get the exact job that I wanted.  I have nothing but great things to say about the Market Readiness team and the help they gave me.”

Adam Richeson, MBA ‘11
