Invite a Career Center professional to deliver a presentation to your class.

The Career Center staff is eager to speak with students in your class(es). We can come to your classroom or you can bring your class to the Career Center. We can deliver a presentation that fills a whole class period or for any amount of time that works for you. Here are some topics that we are prepared to deliver, but you can always request a unique career-related topic and we will do our best to accommodate your request. You may call the Career Center at 581-1359 to request a speaker.

Suggested Topics for Class Presentations:

  • Resumes and Cover Letters
  • Interviewing Skills
  • Internships 101
  • Career Exploration
  • Overview of Career Services
  • Networking and Job Search Strategies

Please contact the Career Center to discuss how we can collaborate to provide your students with these experiences.  The Career Center enjoys a strong relationship with faculty based on a shared commitment to provide students with a quality education for their professional and personal success. We encourage you to refer students to the Career Center for career counseling or for help with any aspect of their internship/job searches. We look forward to working with you.
