Program Partnership with Student Organizations

The Center for Career Development is excited to collaborate with campus partners, including student organizations on programs and workshops. Common topics include: 

  • Resumes 
  • Cover letters 
  • Internship and job search strategies
  • Interviewing
  • Networking
  • LinkedIn 
  • Offer negotiation
  • Resume reviews

Depending on the length of the program time, some topics may be combined (e.g., resume & cover letter writing). Skill-building programs can be offered in-person or virtually. 

The Center for Career Development typically requires at least two-week lead time for skill-building workshops. Other types of program collaboration may require a longer lead time depending on the nature of the program. When possible, we strongly encourage your organization to reach out to Satomi Chudasama, director, student engagement, to discuss program collaboration ideas in mid- to late-spring for programs for the fall semester as well as mid-fall for spring programs.

Per University guidelines, all programs coordinated in partnership with the Center for Career Development must be open to all students. We can work with your organization to create an event or activity that focuses on the perspective of, or that is of particular interest to, individuals with a particular identity, but participation in the program or activity must not be restricted.

The Center for Career Development does not have funding available for programs, events, or travel that we are not involved in coordinating from the beginning.

Support for Your Organization When You Are Contacted by Employers 

The Center for Career Development can support your group in handling employer inquiries.

Our team will ensure that events organized by employers in collaboration with student groups are listed on Handshake, made accessible to all students and follow recruiting guidelines. Additionally, we can assist in locating suitable rooms for employers and provide support with logistics and event details.

Employers and student groups are required to ensure that events are open to all students, regardless of identity, in accordance with University policy. 

We maintain regular contact with employers, and can make sure that we also share employer programs that are of interest to your group. If you are contacted by an employer, please reach out to Krystyn Kitto, senior associate director, employer engagement for support. If you are scheduling a recruitment event, please contact Krystyn during the initial planning stages or at least two weeks in advance of the employer program.
