Resources for You and Your Students
Class Presentations and Assignments
Rather than canceling class when other responsibilities come up, consider a tailored presentation by one of
our highly qualified career center staff on select career-related topics or to assist with class assignments
which have a career component. You can find a list of available seminars on the request form or we can
custom tailor a presentation to fit your needs. Please note that all presentation requests must be submitted
using the form linked below at least 10 business days before the proposed date.
Know a student unsure of their major or career? Suggest meeting with one of our Career Consultants to determine if a career assessment is right for them:
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) instrument is the most widely used personality inventory in history. Knowing your personality type, as measured through the MBTI®, can help you with career planning at every stage. Learning about your attitudes and mental functions with the MBTI® instrument can help you pinpoint occupational fields that favor your personality style and values by recognizing:
- Where you focus your attention and get your energy.
- The way you take in information.
- The way you make decisions.
- How you deal with the outer world.
The Strong Interest Inventory®
The Strong Interest Inventory® assessment is one of the world’s most widely respected and frequently used career planning tools. It has helped both academic and business organizations develop the brightest talent and has guided thousands of individuals—from high school and college students to midcareer workers seeking a change—in their search for a rich and fulfilling career.
Add Career Exploration to Your Curriculum
Students become more motivated and interested in their studies if they know more about their field and the opportunities available. Adding career exploration to your curriculum will help make the connections between education and world of work for your students. Possible career assignments include:
- Write a resume and/or cover letter and schedule an appointment with a Career Consultant/Student Career Ambassador to critique.
- Schedule and attend a mock interview to receive valuable feedback on verbal communication skills.
- Create a list of questions to ask employers at a job and internship fair to gather information and build a professional network. Attend a job and internship fair.
- Research internship and career possibilities using any of our exploration tools.
- Attend a career workshop or employer info session. The University Career Center tracks student engagement and can provide you with attendance View event calendar (hyperlink to Events)
