Career Discovery & Success is growing. We are thrilled to expand the team and revamp presentations. Due to this growth, presentation requests are currently paused. We apologize for any inconvenience, and appreciate your patience. Please, check back in the future for exciting updates.
We offer a variety of presentations covering a range of career-related topics and can easily be requested online using the button below.
Due to the variety of instructional methods currently in place, we now offer presentations in three formats for your convenience: live in-person, synchronous via Zoom, and recordings to embed in courses.
** For live presentations, please make your requests at least 2 weeks prior to the date needed so that we may arrange for a presenter. **
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, TypeFocus is a good option. Students can log in 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. In addition, students can practice demonstrating career readiness competencies and tailor their marketing pieces using feedback about personality in this system.
Please contact us 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 (Issuu or printed book) with helpful hints, or offering our website resources. We also now have Quinncia, which will provide students with instant feedback on their resumes based on their field of study and applicant tracking systems. Learn more about it here.
If you would like your class to have their resumes reviewed by our office, or would like to gain access to Quinncia, please contact us to work out the best way to accommodate your students.
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.
Mock interviews will be done in person and via Zoom for the fall semester.
Our new program, Quinncia, is a wonderful alternative to in-person interview practice. Students can access Quinncia anytime and upload their resumes for revision suggestions. Based on the resume, Quinn's artificial intelligence will practice interviewing with the student and give direct feedback for improvements. Learn more here.
The University Career Center offers a variety of career events throughout the year and appreciate you encouraging your students to 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 to 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.
