Career Toolbox & Request Forms
Because the Career Development Center’s goal is to provide increased opportunities for students to receive and apply information about career and professional development, the department has attempted to provide easy access to resources and tools to use with students in a variety of settings.
We want to assure faculty and staff the CDC staff will remain available for partnerships so you may continue to request Career Development Center classroom and student organization presentations, or propose any other special partnership to provide enhanced opportunities for students. See our Request and Referral Forms section to submit any requests. Please plan in advance, since we have limited time slots available.
UIS Exclusive Online Resources
The Faculty/Staff Career Toolbox has been updated and customized with the intent to easily find information and tools to use for personal professional development and with students that will be complementary to curricular and co-curricular activities. A list of tools and resources is below with a brief summary of each so you may determine which exclusive resource might be the most beneficial to your class’s subject matter or a student organization’s objective.
Handouts & Guides
At times you may want supplemental career information to reference. The handouts and guides developed by the CDC staff include career topics which tend to be the most requested resources by students. Feel free to use them accordingly, or at least help us to market these valuable resources and tools to students and remind them they are available on the CDC website.
