The Career Center welcomes the opportunity to work with your student organization. To ensure a program is the best fit, there are some questions we’d like you to consider first. This way, we can make sure the process works well for everyone. If there are any questions you may have, or if there is something the guide does not cover, please let us know.

Why are you interested in a program?
We want to make sure this is beneficial for everyone involved. Having a clear understanding of “why” allows our coaches to make sure we are the best fit for what you want.
What do you expect to get out of a program?
If you’ve never taken part in a Career Center class or program, there are some things you should know first:
- You only get out what you put in. There is plenty of helpful information to take from our workshops if you invest yourself into it.
- Our classes are interactive! We try to avoid simply talking over slides. Be prepared to interact with both the presenter(s) and the other members of the audience.
- Questions and input are encouraged. If you are unsure of something, or want to dive deeper into a topic, don’t hesitate to ask! There’s a good chance others are thinking it too.
If you have decided that our programs are for you, here are the criteria that must be met:
- Scheduling must take place in person, by scheduled appointment.
- Scheduling must be done at least 2 weeks before intended date of program.
- Must be scheduled according to a list of predetermined time slots/availabilities.
- Must have a list of at least 10 attendees, by name, ready at your appointment.
- Topic of program must be selected from a preset list (can be a variety of topics that are broken down into different times).
- Location and/or required A/V equipment must be secured on your own.
- Attribute each program to the Career Center in all electronic and print publicity with the words, “Presented by the Career Center” after the program title.
