Faculty: Career Services Asks “ARRRRR YOU READY?”

Career services welcomes you back with some awesome opportunities to share with your students!  Please take a moment to read our newsletter and mark your calendars and syllabi with important dates.  We continue to encourage our students to get a jump start on their career development and allow career services to help them to explore, experience, and achieve!

Career Services Fall Newsletter for Faculty

Our Career Ambassador Program is new this semester. We have five traditional day undergraduate students serving as peer career counselors.  They have been trained to conduct resume and cover letter critiques and mock interviews.  If you would like to have a career ambassador come to your class to speak for 5 minutes about career services we’d be happy to arrange that as well.
