Share Your Expertise
Want to take your Recruitment Plan to the next level? Go Beyond the Classroom and host these experiential learning opportunities that provide students and your employer significant advantages above other organizations and recruiters.
Serve as a Panelist / Presenter
The Career Development Center hosts workshops and panel discussions on a variety of career topics such as industry trends, job search strategies, interviewing, and more! Additionally, employers may present a workshop on their own career development topic, such as “Finding Federal Employment.”
Critique Student Resumes
Many students use the Career Development Center for its resume and cover letter critiquing services. As a professional in the field, however, you have an expert eye to provide students with specific feedback on how to tailor their resume to an industry, type of career, or employer.
Serve on Advisory Board
In order to ensure that the UIS Career Development Center is meeting the needs of all students, serving employer recruitment needs, and staying current in an ever-changing job market, we may request your opinion and participation on an advisory board.
Host a Tour of your Workplace:
Consider coordinating a “field trip” for students to see your place of employment in action! Not only will it strengthen the relationship between the employer and students, but students will get a glimpse at your organization’s culture.
Participate in Informational Interviews by Students
Informational interviews allow students to interview you, the employer! Students may ask questions about what steps you took to get into the career you are in, industry trends, ways to get their “foot in the door”, and other questions that will give them a realistic perception of interested careers.
Conduct Mock Interviews
Interact with students through conducting a mock interview either in your office or at the Career Development Center. Mock interviews will prepare students for the real thing with your feedback and expertise.
