Faculty & Staff
Services offered for Faculty and Staff by the Career Development Center:
We know employers who want to know our faculty
We work directly with employers, who often ask for the contact information of faculty members who could help them to target students in a particular major, discipline or other areas of interest. We can facilitate that connection.
Career fairs attract many recruiters to one event
Our career fairs provide excellent opportunities for students to meet representatives from the companies in their industries of choice and establish a network of contacts. We help students research employers and provide interview preparation tips.
Through our affiliation with the North Carolina Career Consortium (NCCC) and colleagues at other institutions, we provide access to more than 20 career and information fairs each year.
We’ll bring the information to your class
We specialize in conducting presentations on a host of topics such as resumé writing, life after Guilford, including non-profit experience on a resumé, job-search strategies, and interviewing skills. We can also help out in a pinch; if you need to or are considering canceling a class, just contact us, and we can schedule a presentation instead.
We help students identify and pursue internships for academic credit
Internships provide the opportunity to make informed decisions about a field of study and make valuable contacts.
Resources for Faculty
We offer a variety of resources to faculty and instructors for use in courses. If you would like to arrange for use of any of our services or materials, tours, or presentations please contact the Career Development Center at (336) 316-2187. We will be happy to accommodate your request.
We provide faculty and instructors with in-depth understandings of our services and facilities. We offer tours of the Career Development Center, presentations at department meetings, and individual appointments. By learning more about our center, faculty can refer students to the Career Development Center and understand better how our facilities and services can work into your course requirements.
Many students seek career guidance and assistance from faculty and advisers. Through written publications and individual consultations, we can help you become familiar with career development information, issues, and theories as they relate to the material you present to your students. These may also guide you in meetings with students who bring career concerns to you.
We are also delighted to come into your classes to offer instruction on various career planning and job search topics.
The Mock Interview Program is available to students who want to practice their interviewing techniques before an actual interview.
The Career Development Center houses a career library. Students use the library to research careers, graduate schools, internships, summer jobs, prospective employers, job vacancy announcements, and a host of volunteer opportunities. No appointment is necessary to use these facilities; they are open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. through 5 p.m.
If you are considering referring students to the Career Development Center as a part of your course, please let us know. As you are developing your syllabus, we can assist you in integrating career development theories and information into your curriculum, help you determine which services and materials would be most appropriate for your class, and prepare our staff to respond to inquiries by students in your course.
