The volunteer Executive-in-Residence (EIR) Team initiative is a program within the School of Business at SUNY Old Westbury that was initiated in Fall 2013. Participating business professionals are volunteers who maintain fixed hours on campus to help mentor students, assist them in developing and improving resumes, practice job-interview techniques, and guide them on networking concepts.
The EIR member helps students create or improve resumes and cover letters, review the dos and don’ts of the job-search process, explain job-interview techniques and practice mini-mock interviews, discuss networking techniques, offer thoughts on career questions, and explore additional steps budding entrepreneurs might take in molding a start-up business idea pointing out some of the issues to be considered and suggesting others with whom the students might consult. Students are encouraged to make an appointment.
