Faculty: Partner with Us

Whether students are preparing for graduate school or entering the workforce directly upon graduation, they will benefit from a partnership between the Center and you.

Ways we can assist:

  • Class presentations. Invite us to your classroom for 15 minutes or more to speak about a career topic of your choice that might even be related to your syllabus content. Topics might include: identifying a major, personal branding using social media, communication strategies for interview success, organizing your search, networking using LinkedIn, and more.
  • Employer and alumni contacts. Many employers are interested in expanding their presence and connecting with faculty. We can provide contacts for class presentations, projects or competitions.
  • Employer and faculty meet and greets. Participate in an employer presentation for faculty on opportunities or trends in their industry, join us for lunch with recruiters on campus or accompany us to an off-campus recruitment development meeting or site visit. 
  • Stay informed. We distribute weekly and monthly newsletters via email.  Find out which employers are recruiting our students for jobs and internships. Keep in touch with our latest programs, workshops and resources. Join our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter for career and program updates.
  • Online resources. Take advantage of online resources for U.S.-based and international employers, career information, online interview preparation, and more.
  • Outcomes. Curious about where students go when they graduate? Refer to the graduation outcomes report or contact us for information specific to your discipline.

Ways you can assist:

  • Tell students! Refer our services, programs and resources -- described throughout our site -- to students.
  • Share your expertise. Our most successful programs are often presented in collaboration with faculty members and student associations. Past topics include: graduate school, federal employment, career presentations by field, social media and more.
  • Refer employer requests directly to us. By serving as the centralized recruiting resource, the Center ensures that Bryant maintains a solid recruiting and internship program for all Bryant students.
  • Familiarize yourself with faculty guidelines and legal considerations published by the National Association of Colleges & Employers
  • Recommend employers specific to your discipline. We are interested in expanding opportunities for students. If you have employer contacts, we welcome your leads and suggestions. Contact Pat Miernicki, manager of employer outreach and development, to discuss or suggest employers who may benefit from recruiting our students.

 

Academic Internships

The Center coordinates the Academic Internship Program. Opportunities are designed to enhance classroom theory by offering field-based learning experiences supported by the standards of each academic department.

We encourage you to partner with us throughout the entire internship process, from identifying opportunities to assisting students with academic credit.
