Opportunities for Campus Partnerships

Classroom Presentations & Assignments

Career Related Assignments 
We encourage you to think about ways to integrate career-related activities, that encourage use of the Career Center, into your classroom curriculum. Each semester faculty assign students to stop by the Career Center to learn about our services, programs and resources, take one of our career-related assessments, attend a Career Center program or event, have their resume and cover letter critiqued, and/or participate in a mock interview.

NEW Career Management System

The Career Center also utilizes social media to help connect students and alumni with networking opportunities and career-related information.

Each spring graduating education students participate in Education Expo, a job and networking event, which connects students and alumni with education-related employers.
