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 — Career Center advisors and staff are available to attend classes to speak about career planning and job searching, as well as industry and population-specific topics. Speakers can also share information on relevant opportunities, resources and events during their visit. We can speak for ten minutes or deliver a specialized presentation that fills a whole class period. We can also help connect you to employer and alumni guest speakers.
- 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.
