We are always open to new ideas that bring college closer to career.
It’s easy to fit career development into your curriculum. Shared assignments can be a natural extension of the 21st century skills your are already teaching. Contact us prior to the start of the semester to plan logistics and share requirements or rubrics you have developed. Below are examples of popular shared assignments:
- Resume and Cover Letter Review
- Mock Interview
- Extra Credit for Event Attendance
Our staff is available to present to your students on current career topics. Topics include resumes, cover letters, interviewing, LinkedIn, networking and more. All presentations align with NACE competencies and industry hiring practices. Presentations are available in-person, via video conferencing or pre-recorded.
Throughout the academic year, we see a high volume of students referred to us by faculty and staff. We value these referrals and know that you are always on the lookout for when to refer. Refer a student for career coaching.
Every semester we invite employers to participate in panel discussions. Panels present an engaging way for students to learn about industry and explore different career paths. There are typically between two and four industry professionals per panel. Panel can be in-person or virtual.
In additional to panels, we source industry professionals for participation in project-based learning, informational interviewing, and more. For help with sourcing, contact our director Laura Chiuppi.
