Faculty members and advisors play an important role in student career development. Students seek advice on issues ranging from majors and resumes to graduate school and professional direction. This relationship often continues beyond graduation as former students enter the workplace and pursue graduate study.

We at the Career Center also forge relationships with students and have a strong investment in their development. Based on this mutual interest, we’ve created a Faculty Toolkit that provides detailed information about how our office partners with individual faculty members for Don't Cancel a Class presentations and advises departments on career programs for their students. The Toolkit also features numerous ways that faculty members can support students in their career journeys, from career exploration tools to networking and job search resources, and much more.
