The mutual goal of both Keystone faculty and the Career Development Center (CDC) is student success. By working together, faculty and the CDC can ensure that the transition from student to a member of the work force is as seamless as possible.
Think of the path our students take to their professional career, as a camping trip. Faculty does an outstanding job of "filling the students' backpacks" with the knowledge and practical skills they need to thrive once they reach their destination. The CDC provides the maps and compasses, and serves as a guide for students conducting their career exploration.
Presentations and Workshops
Do you need to cancel a class? Schedule a career presentation or workshop instead! Representatives from the Career Development Center will come into your classroom and present on anything from cover letter and resume writing to networking and job searches.
How can we help you?
Following are some of the services we offer:
- We help your students find the right fit
We help students determine the right career for their interests, career goals, skills, values, and personality. During their academic careers, students return to the CDC to develop essential job-search skills. We are a student's best resource for job outlook, salary, and employment trend information.
- We know employers who want to know you
At the CDC, we work directly with employers, who often ask for the contact information of faculty members who could help them to target students in a particular major or discipline. Ideally, employers would like to develop mutually beneficial relationships with faculty, and can provide many forms of support. We can facilitate that connection.
- Recruiters who visit campus want to meet your students & you
Our recruiting events provide excellent opportunities for your students to meet representatives from the companies in their industries of choice and establish a network of contacts. We will help your students research the employers beforehand and provide tips so they are prepared to effectively engage recruiters. Employers also appreciate the opportunity meet with faculty.
- We help students master the job interview
There is no better way to prepare for the job interview than by experiencing an "actual" interview. At the CDC, our staff will conduct mock interviews with your students, then provide a constructive critique of their performance and effective interview strategies.
- We'll bring the information to your class
We specialize in conducting presentations to the classes you teach and the student organizations you advise about a host of career-related topics, such as resume writing, job-search strategies, and interviewing skills. We also can help out in a pinch: If you need to or are considering canceling a class, just contact us and we can schedule a presentation instead.
- We assist in identifying quality experiential education opportunities-experiential learning is such an important part of your students' overall educational experience. Just ask any employer. Through our network of employers, we can help your students identify internship and experiential learning opportunities that will best serve them in their academic and professional pursuits.
These are just some of the services we offer. Please call (570) 945-8312 or email us to determine how, together, we can achieve student success. We look forward to working with you!
