Faculty and staff can complete electives at any time, regardless of if they have taken Sessions 1-3.

Designed by the Pomerantz Career Center, the Career Connector training series engages faculty and staff in a tailored curriculum designed to provide knowledge about the career development process and the foundations of employability, as well as teaching best practices for having career conversations with students. Participants will learn valuable helping skills, goal setting techniques, ethical practices, and how best to make referrals to the Pomerantz Career Center.

In addition to offering the three foundational courses within Career Connectors, there are also a variety of elective opportunities for continuous professional development and a deeper dive on specific topics. Stay up to date with the latest industry insights, gain new perspectives, and enhance your skills as you navigate the ever-evolving landscape of career development!

In this elective, participants will learn about:

  • Handshake- the online system where students and alum can search for on-campus/student employment jobs, internships, and full-time jobs, and
  • how users can also research companies and schedule mock interviews using this platform.
