At Career Services, we know that students are much more likely to respond to your encouragement to use our services or attend events than to any promotion we do. The faculty and staff provide vital links among Career Services, students, alumni, and employers. With this in mind, Career Services continues to develop links to the faculty and staff so that our cooperative efforts are effective. We appreciate your support and offer the following services and resources for you. Note the helpful links on the right.
Here are some possible topics, but we can customize to what you would like: Resumes, job search letters, interviewing, how to attend career fairs, the “hidden job market”/networking, researching organizations, qualifications & skills needed in the workplace, and information about the services we provide to job seekers.
Need a "SIC" Day? This program brings Career Services into the classroom when a faculty member is away for professional travel or personal issues. Career Services will speak to your class about career-related issues during your absence. Some examples of possible topics are above. NOTE: We need advance notice to do SIC Days, usually at least a week.
We have a plethora of employers who would like to visit your classes to speak. If you are interested in having one or more employer/recruiters visit, contact us.
We are available to speak to the more than 100 student organizations and clubs on campus. Presentations can be tailored to your group’s needs. Some examples are above.
Career Services visits employers in their workplaces. We discuss their labor force needs, qualifications and skills for employment, and university/employer relations. If you would like to accompany us on an employer visit, or if you would like us to accompany YOU, or if you would like to suggest a new employer, let us know.
Some employers schedule information sessions prior to the day of their on-campus interviews. These information sessions allow employers the opportunity to discuss their organization with students, faculty, and staff. The Info Session calendar is in BodJobs. If you do not have a student account in BodJobs but would like access to the recruiting schedule and info session schedule, give us a call – it’s very easy for you to set up.
Our services are available to staff and faculty as well as students. Feel free to schedule an appointment.
