We know employers who want to know our faculty

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.
The Career Development Center brings recruiters to campus continually. Annually we host career fairs and graduate school fairs. Additionally we provide students with information about other recruitment events.
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.

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.
