Spotlight for Career Services Professionals
If you have five to 10 minutes to share information and updates about career services with key campus players, what would you cover?
A career center director asked colleagues in the NACE Community for the top three things that they would share with deans, department chairs, and faculty. Here are some of their answers:
- Graduate outcomes data;
- Updates such as on new staff, a new customer relationship management system (CRM), new software, or digital tools;
- Reminders about ethical/legal guidelines around employers and recruiting;
- Resources faculty can use in their courses;
- A list of services that can align with assignments (mock interviews, updating a resume, career fairs);
- FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act) rules, including rules around internships;
- Classroom presentations and the number of students attending;
- The majors of students who attended job fairs;
- The number of students from each college (or department) that scheduled counseling;
- Initiatives or strategic plans that address major-specific challenges;
- Programs to help students be aware of career options in their fields; and
- Highlights of last year’s internship opportunities.
