The Eli Broad College of Business has intentionally located the new Russell Palmer Career Management Center in the Edward J. Minskoff Pavilion to showcase the career support and recruiting services offered to employers and students.

The current center was formerly two separate units: the Lear Corporation Career Services Center and the Graduate Career Management Center. The new Palmer Center supports, advises and coaches Broad students to realize their career aspirations while working with leading employers and alumni to send our Spartans across the world.

Given its location in the Minskoff Pavilion, the Palmer Center provides a variety of upgrades to enhance the experience for both students and employers. These upgrades include 20 interview rooms, state-of-the-art technology and a variety of unique events for both employers and students. The Palmer Center team is committed to providing “Green and White Glove Service” to ensure a positive experience for all stakeholders.
