BEST hosts five workshops every semester for its members. The topic range is diverse, covering the many aspects of seeking and developing a career. Former topics include resume writing, networking, dining etiquette, informational interviewing, proper dress code, and personal financial planning.

Workshops provide BEST members an opportunity to gain insight from the experiences of the speakers, who are often local business professionals and Shidler faculty and alumni.

Company Tours

One of the most intriguing aspects of being in BEST is the ability to tour businesses around the island and meet many of the people that work in each location. In the past, BEST has had opportunities to tour Deloitte, Hawaiian Airlines, Merrill Lynch, Trump Tower, and Starwood, among various others. Tours foster the opportunity to see behind the scenes and get an inside look. Tours are an interactive way to grow your horizons within the business world, to give an insight into different business environments and to introduce members to a whole new way of networking.

Mock Interview

Mock Interview

Every semester, BEST invites business professionals from around the community to dine with and hold a “mock” interview for its members. BEST members prepare for this event as if they were applying for a real job: they update their resumes, write cover letters, learn about the company that is interviewing them, and dress to impress!

At dinner, the members and professionals have an opportunity to network with one another. Then BEST members are paired with a professional for a 15-minute round, during which they are interviewed and given feedback on their performance and their resume.
The professionals also fill out evaluation forms for the members to take home after for further reflection. Mock Interview is a great opportunity for members to practice and perfect their interviewing skills and for professionals to meet some of Shidler’s brightest students!

Professional Interaction Night (PIN)

BEST’s Professional Interaction Night is an amazing opportunity for business professionals in Hawaii to meet and interact with some of Shidler’s most prestigious and bright students. During this evening event, our members are matched up with different professionals for dinner and one-on-one informational interviews based upon majors and career interests. A time for the students to excel, network, and ask questions, it is also a time for the professionals to meet new and incoming talent, and maybe even an opportunity to scout out potential interns and full-time hires. Always a beneficial and productive evening, it is BEST’s privilege to host these PI Mixers once a semester…for many more to come!
