Faculty and Advisors:
You are in a unique position to help students understand the importance of learning more about themselves and the working world outside of the classroom. Employers are looking for candidates who take initiative, who can plan, organize, and prioritize, and who have skills in leadership, teamwork, communication, decision-making and problem-solving.
The Office of Career Development is here to collaborate and provide you with information, programming, and resources to assist you with offering students opportunities to apply their classroom learning to the real world. Please support your students' holistic development:
Encourage them to visit the Office of Career Development early on to learn about the available resources.
Encourage them to explore their skills, interests, abilities, values, and strengths.
Encourage them to get involved with various organizations and activities.
Encourage them to get a summer job or internship to gain career-related experience.
Get involved with Career Development yourself. Perhaps you can provide students with information relating to a profession they are interested in.
