Incorporate career development into your curriculum
By partnering with the Career Center, you will have access to career exploration opportunities that can occur in or out of the classroom. The following are possible course assignment ideas or collaboration opportunities:
- Create a customized Practice Interview — InterviewStream is a video mock interview system. It includes a faculty module that allows you to create custom assignments using pre-recorded video questions that can be emailed to students. Check out the Faculty Guide for tips.
- Host a guest speaker or request a customized workshop — Are you interested in having staff come to your classroom to
present or lead a workshop on resumes, internships, interviewing, career
exploration, or any other career development topic? If so, we can
design a customized presentation or workshop that meets your needs! We can also help connect you to employer and alumni guest speakers. Submit a request.
- Attend a career event or fair — Bring your class to an event or fair, or incorporate workshop or networking event attendance into a professional development and reflection assignment.
- Assign a resume, portfolio or cover letter critique — Students may schedule an appointment for a critique or take advantage of weekly walk-in hours at both campuses.
