Our faculty members can take advantage of the Center for Career & Professional Development's Services.
Through collaboration, we are better able to equip students for meaningful lives and productive careers. We welcome the opportunity to partner with you in a wide variety of ways, including (but not limited to) class presentations, events, bringing employers to campus, establishing new employer partnerships.
Our previous presentation topics have included: Resumes, Job/Internship Search, Professionalism, LinkedIn, Interviewing, Branding, Salary Negotiation, and more.
Do you know who your CCPD liaison is?
- College of Business, College of Health Professions, and College of Pharmacy → Brad Hammer ([email protected] | x6992)
- College of Education, College of Sciences, and College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences → Cindy Strathman ([email protected] | x5875)
Your CCPD liaison is who your students work within our office and who would also likely be the one visiting your classroom for presentations (unless otherwise requested/noted).
We also invite you to incorporate our events into your syllabi whenever possible and appropriate. Our events include job fairs, networking opportunities, workshops, and mock interviews. Additionally, we are more than happy to sit down and brainstorm ideas with you.
Do you know of a student participating in an internship?
Please encourage them to report the experience through our office. Regardless of whether or not the internship is for academic credit, or paid/unpaid, registering the internship opens up their eligibility to be nominated by their supervisor for the Intern of the Year award (which comes with a cash prize).
Speaking of internships…Are you a Faculty Internship Adviser?
As a faculty member advising students' internship experiences, we advise abiding by our Best Practices. In addition, all students reporting internships through our office will sign their Internship Agreement. We encourage you to have your for-credit interns utilize our Time Log to verify hours worked and to stay informed of progress/issues in a timely manner.
We have a new video mock interview tool → StandOut
We are really excited to provide this tool not only to students,
but to you as faculty. If you want your students to practice their video
interviewing skills, StandOut is a GREAT way to do so.
Through the platform you can:
- Create an assignment through the platform that's only accessible to your students.
- Create a custom interview, including customized questions.
- Ask questions that are relevant to your industry!
- Provide your students with individualized feedback.
- Rinse and repeat (if you want!).
If would like access to
the system, contact your liaison and he/she will get you set up. In the meantime, here are some instructions
you can peruse. Enjoy!
