We appreciate the opportunity to reach students and thank you for including us in your curriculum.
We offer a variety of presentations covering a range of career related topics and can easily be requested online using the button below. While planning for your presentation dates, please keep in mind that we do not present on days that we host our career fairs which are February 10 and March 24 in the spring semester. Email Addye Buckley-Burnell at email@example.com with questions.
** Please make your requests at least 2 weeks prior to the date needed so that we may arrange for a presenter. We limit our presentations to 2 presentation topics/dates per course section. **
If you use career assessments in your courses, we are happy to provide class interpretations for the Strong Interest Inventory, TypeFocus, and Clifton Strengths (aka StrengthsFinder) as well as detailed instruction handouts for your students.
For a self-guided career planning tool, FOCUS II is a good option. Students can log in (access code: auburn) and complete self-assessments that will guide them in exploring a variety of major and career options. This does not need an interpretation, but our office has created a variety of class assignments based on the information that we are happy to provide if needed.
Please contact Addye Buckley-Burnell at firstname.lastname@example.org if this is something you would like to learn more about this or make arrangements for your course.
For resume assignments, we are happy to help by presenting to the class about resume writing, providing our Job Search Guides (PDF or printed book) with helpful hints, or offering our website resources. We also now have VMock, which will provide students with instant feedback on their resumes based on their field of study. See the faculty flyer for more information and use the
student flyer for your class.
If you would like your class to have their resumes reviewed by our office, please contact Addye Buckley-Burnell at email@example.com to work out the best way to accommodate your students.
**Please do not assign students to use our eResume review service for class assignments. We wish to avoid delays for your students or those needing their resumes for immediate applications.**
Mock interviews are another popular service and class assignment. If this is something you plan to include in your syllabus, please let us know as far in advance as possible so that we may work with you to put together appropriate
questions, review guidelines, and find ideal time periods in the semester to avoid scheduling issues for your students.
InterviewStream is also a great option if you would like to require your students practice interviewing but do not want to have them schedule appointments. This online system allows you as an instructor to create interviews in the system for your students to complete via webcam. Once completed, you are able to critique and give feedback to the students directly in the system. This is a great option that we are happy to provide you detailed instructions to utilize by emailing Addye Buckley-Burnell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The University Career Center offers a variety of career events throughout the year and appreciate you encouraging your students attend. Many instructors offer extra credit for attending the events and we are happy to provide you
with a list of attendees to make this easier to track. If you require your students attend a career fair, please stress the importance of the professional dress code and encourage them to use the Campus Career Closet for free professional attire.
