The Career Advisory Board (CAB) is another integral group of external constituents that the Perdue School uses to link the campus to career process. Organized in 2011, this group of young professionals from private industry and not-for-profit organizations provide students with unique mentoring, networking and professional development opportunities. A sample of their endeavors includes the Community Leadership Panel, the Women in Leadership Panel and a formalized mentoring program open to all Salisbury University students, which links students with professional mentors.

The chair of the CAB is Jayme Weeg. Jayme is the president of Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore and has been one of the driving forces underlying the group’s success. There are three standing committees. Brad Gillis, a senior advisor for Sperry Van Ness/Miller Commercial Real Estate, chairs the CAB Networking Committee. The Mentoring Committee is chaired by Sarah Bunch, the assistant director at the Perdue School’s Business, Economic and Community Outreach Network (BEACON), while Jennifer Layton and Sean Fahey chair the Professional Development Committee. Jennifer is the “Jen”eral manager at Layton’s Chance Vineyard and Winery in Vienna, MD; Sean is vice president of operations at Peninsula Roofing in Salisbury.
