Participate in Career Education
Stand out to our top talent by building and maintaining a strong presence on campus. Contributing to the career education of students improves your brand awareness and makes your organization more attractive to potential candidates.
Networking Events and Career Panels
Throughout the academic year, we hold a series of panels and networking events that are educational in nature. Having a staff member participate to offer insight into their career and industry, give advice, and inspire our students is an effective way to improve your brand awareness and inspire students to apply to your organization.
Past topics include careers in: communications and marketing, government, non-profit, HR, geography and environment, medicine, accounting, economics, earth sciences, sciences, humanities and social sciences and more.
Job Shadow Program
Job shadow is a model of experiential learning whereby students gain a first-hand look at a work environment within an industry. During this experience, students engage with professionals/hosts who can help in their academic decision-making and career planning.
By participating as a host in our Job Shadow Program and sharing your insights and experiences, you play an active role in educating students about your career field and the workplace.
In The Field
Host a short site visit at your organization to show our students the different divisions and opportunities within your offices. In The Field is a customized employer engagement opportunity that allows students to visit an organization and learn about its day-to-day operations.
Our staff will work with your organization to put together a customized half-day or one-day field trip which:
- Introduces a group of select students to your organization and the various career paths possible within your organization
- Helps students understand how different departments within an organization work closely together to form a cohesive business unit
- Provides your staff with an opportunity to share their personal experiences, knowledge, and 'lessons learned' with the next generation of professionals
- Strengthens your organizational presence on our campus
