Career Development Faculty & Staff
We look forward to collaborating with faculty and staff to help students prepare for success after college. By working together we can help students transition from student to professional.
Career Development offers services, resources and programs to help students and alumni with their career development needs. If you would like to refer a student to Career Development have them stop by our office in Campbell Hall, call 215-646-7300, ext: 230 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Class Presentations and "Don't Cancel Class" Program
Staff members from Career Development are available to give class presentations on various career topics. As a faculty or staff member you can schedule a class presentation through our office.
If you are expecting to miss a class the "Don't Cancel Class" program provides a way for your class to meet as usual, but with one of our career professionals who will deliver a career-related presentation.
Presentations we could bring to your class, tailored as needed to your particular students include
Resumes/Cover letters that Get Results
Effective Job Interviews
Job Searching tips and techniques
Choosing a major or career path
Transitioning from Student to Professional
Applying to Graduate/Professional Schools
Other topics available upon your needs
Adding us to your syllabus
Another way to partner with Career Development is to include us on your syllabus. This can assist students with learning more about career development topics, such as resume writing, interviewing, job searching, etc. Here is a list of ideas on how to add us to your syllabus, including ways fellow faculty have included a career topic in their past syllabi:
Require students to get their resume and/or cover letter reviewed.
Have students conduct a mock interview with a staff member from Career Development.
Students may complete a LinkedIn profile and/or online portfolio and have it reviewed by Career Development staff.
Students can create an academic major and/or career path profile to better understand the details of their preferred career interest.
Have students attend career events such as networking programs and job fairs.
We also encourage faculty members to bring their classes to Career Development for a tour so we can introduce your students to our career resources. To arrange a presentation or tour for your class, please call or e-mail Career Development at 215-646-7300, ext: 230 or email@example.com
