Welcome to the Wheelock career community. As a faculty or staff member, you are an important part of the college experience for students and alumni, and we want to collaborate with you on supporting their career development.
There are many ways you can partner with Career Services to support the career exploration and professional development of students including:
- Student Use of Career Services - Encourage students to meet with Career Services as well as attend career related workshops, programs and career fairs. Engagement with Career Services should begin early in students' educational experiences so that they are best prepared for transitions to the professional world or graduate school.
- Promote Programming - Market career programming to students during your classes and add the Spring semester career fair dates to your syllabi. You can view upcoming career programming on the Career Services Events Calendar.
