Career Related Academic Collaborations
The Career Services Center offers services and resources which can be used to complement curriculum and support class assignments. Please contact us at least three weeks prior to making a career-related class project that involves the center to ensure that the CSC staff is prepared to provide resources and assistance related to the assignment.
Class Roster: Please provide a class/organization roster so we can verify student registration on College Central Network at least one week prior to the presentation. Send the roster to email@example.com. College Central Network is the career management system used by the University to track students’ career development.
College Central Network: Students in your class must create an account on College Central Network at least one week prior to the presentation. Please provide this link on your D2L site or by email to facilitate their registration: http://www.clarion.edu/123685.pdf.
Recording: Presentations may not be recorded unless prior approval has been obtained from the Director of the Career Services Center. Submit your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Resume Reviews: Basic, Intermediate and Advanced Resume presentations can be customized to meet the needs of your class. In most cases, to accommodate the number of resume reviews that are course assignments for the Basic Resume presentation, the classroom presentation must be held in a computer lab. We will work with you to reserve the space. If you are not going to assign a resume related project as a part of coursework or for extra credit then the resume program can be presented in a Smart Classroom setting.
Mock Interviews: Basic (general questions) and Customized (career/position specific) Mock Interviews are offered by the Career Services Center. Peer-to-peer, group and individual options are available. In most cases, the Basic Mock Interview is the individual experience for students participating in a classroom assignment or group mock interviews.
Career Events and Job Fairs: Class attendance at career events and job fairs is also welcome with three weeks notice to ensure the event is appropriate for meeting your learning outcomes. Check the respective event web page for pre-registration information, if applicable.
Class Presentations by Employers/Alumni Mentors: Many employers and Clarion alumni who recruit at Clarion are willing to give class presentations on topics that relate to your curriculum. Contact the Career Services Center, at 393-2323 or email email@example.com if you are interested in having an employer speak to your classes. Also, please let us know if you are bringing someone to campus to speak with your class or RSO so that support your efforts.
