    Collaboration Opportunities


    Career Exploration advisors present on a variety of topics including career exploration and job search skill development topics. We work with faculty to tailor offerings to best meet the needs of your students.  Presentations range from a brief introduction on our services (5 to 10 minutes) to a full class meeting – or several! We are committed to finding overlap with what you are already teaching and any topics that reflect the career curriculum.

    Faculty and staff often refer students directly to the career advising staff. Common topics include but are not limited to: major selection, clarifying skills and interests, job search questions, and graduate school planning. 

    We can assist students exploring their career options no matter where they are on that journey.  Students do not have to have to have a path completely mapped out before coming to see us.  

    Students can schedule appointments via Handshake. To refer a student directly, please email John Mountain at [email protected]
