Career Services is committed to partnering with you to ensure student success inside and outside of the classroom. What follows is a list of services and resources we provide to help support all of the vital work you do for our students.
Professional Development Networking Series
Fall 2011, Career Services launched the Professional Development Networking Series in effort to establish an institute model that will create a student pipeline for internships and full-time opportunities. Our program has received much success which is in large part due to faculty collaboration.
Students that attend and complete assignments for the series of career development workshops offered by Career Services will receive certification with our office. This certification affords students the opportunity to be placed in an internship and full-time applicant pool for employers seeking new hires.
Career Services is excited work with faculty to direct students to our PDN program, and in some instances collaborate in that certification can supplement course assignments.
For more information on the Professional Development Networking Series, please contact Catrina DosReis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Internships And Co-Ops
These experiential learning positions are posted on Eagle Career Network. Internships can be paid or unpaid. Our office assists campus departments in coordinating experiential learning opportunities for students. We work with faculty who assign internships for academic credit by sending job announcement flyers and encouraging them to post job announcements for students to view and apply. A faculty survey is requested each semester to identify all students who are pursuing internship opportunities.
When a student needs a part-time job, refer them to the Job Location and Development Counselor at 919-530-6337. We have established partnerships for our students to find and secure part time employment. If you would like to post a part-time job in your office, please contact Monica Stuckey at email@example.com.
Career Services organizes two career fairs per year, one in the fall and spring semesters, and numerous information sessions each semester. Such events give our students and alumni an opportunity to network with employers to learn more about career opportunities. Some faculty will have their classes meet at the career fair to ensure that everyone attends while other faculty members offer an incentive to encourage students to participate in the career fairs. Typically there are at least 80 companies in attendance at each fair. For a listing of the companies registered for one of our career fairs, please visit the online calendar.
On-Campus Interviews And Information Sessions
Employers visit our campus weekly to meet with prospective employees in a centralized location. Campus interview dates are available during the fall (Sept. – Nov.) and spring (Feb. – Apr.) semesters and are posted through Eagle Career Network. Information sessions are hosted by the employer and students are given an overview of the company, the career opportunities available and the application procedures for these opportunities. Please watch your email for our flyers announcing the employers that will visit our campus!
