Each quarter these companies ask for and receive a list of our Gold Members. Each of these companies is eager to know which students are members in good standing of UWiB. These companies know that UWiB shapes students into the social, dependable, and valuable employees they wish to hire. If you are interested in employment with any of these companies, or any other company of your choice in fact, becoming a Gold Member of UWiB provides a beneficial and effective way to get your foot in the door.
Additionally, our seminars and workshops are often hosted by the recruiting managers you potentially will be interviewed by. UWiB provides an amazing opportunity to set yourself ahead of the curve by gaining a competitive edge and have multiple forms of contact with employers early on.
UWiB’s Gold Membership program can help you find employment with your desired company.
What are the requirements of becoming a Gold Member? • Attend two meetings a quarter • Participate in one of our philantrophy events • Be actively involved in our External Relations Committee (ERC) • Be in good financial standing each quarter by paying dues.
What are the volunteer events for the quarter? The Web site is updated regularly with upcoming events.
What if I cannot participate in one of UWiB’s volunteer events? You can complete the volunteer requirement by participating in at least three hours of community service on your own time. Be sure to turn in a signed verification from the organization on their letterhead, with contact information, within the two weeks following your service. Also, please keep checking back on the Web site for alternative independent volunteer opportunities.
What does it mean to be “actively involved in the External Relations Committee (ERC)?” The commitment to be a part of the ERC committee is not time-consuming. Currently, the ERC members are asked to actively promote and spread the word of upcoming events by performing marketing activities and offer any business contacts he/she may have that UWiB could use to expand our network; specifically for guest speakers, the Gold Member program, and the Businesswomen-to-Student Mentorship Program.
What if I don’t have any business contacts? Sure you do! Where do your parents work? Your friends? Anyone with a business card is considered a business contact.
Can I be a Gold Member one quarter, then take a quarter off, and then be a Gold Member again? Of course, UWiB is conscious and sensitive to students’ busy schedules. We do however, advise you that it is more economical to pay for a full year’s membership at a discount, rather than pay each quarter. Additionally, you must have Gold Member status in order to participate in the Businesswomen-to-Student Mentorship Program.
