As a faculty member or advisor, you play a critical role in students’ development by not only educating them in the classroom but also guiding the decisions they make about course offerings and career opportunities. Here are additional ways to assist students:
Encourage Students to use Hire A Vike
This software hosts internships, co-ops, student employment and permanent positions. It is important for students to activate their account, update their profile and upload a resume in order to stay up-to-date on relevant career events and opportunities.
Support their Internship Search
Students should begin preparing their internship search materials to impress potential employers a semester ahead of time. When meeting with students, let them know that career specialists are available to assist them with all aspects of this process. Have them contact us: email@example.com or 216-687-2233.
