Host or Attend a Career-Related Event
We've found that our programs and events are enriched significantly when we partner with faculty in their creation and promotion. We are always looking for faculty input and volunteers for our various program series. Click here for a sample of programs that we have done in collaboration with faculty.
Whether you'd like to be a primary "promotional partner" for an event, serve on a panel for one of our Networking Nights, or simply come meet-and-greet employers at one of our Career Fairs, we would love to work with you. We are also always seeking new ways to engage topics that have immediacy and relevance to your students, and welcome input on potential new programs and workshops.
If you are interested in partnering with us, please contact Holly Simpson, Assistant Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Use Your Connections
Chances are, as a faculty or staff member, you have a large network of connections in your field and others. This is a tremendously powerful resource, as the vast majority of jobs (70-80%) are found through networking and referrals. You may have connections that would be interested in hiring Valpo students and grads for jobs and internships, or perhaps connecting with students on a more informational/mentoring basis. In either case, please feel free to contact us and share any connections that might be beneficial to our students and alumni.
For all professional connection referrals, please contact Tom Cath, Director of the Career Center, at email@example.com.
