Plan a career-related workshop
for your class

If an emergency arises and you must cancel class, let us be your “substitute” teach.  Our team can take your class over for the day and your students will be given tips on resumes, interviewing and finding a job. All you have to do is click on the Request Career Services- Class Workshop and complete the form 7 days in advance. A career advisor will contact you to discuss and confirm the details. While this does depend on availability, be sure that Career Services will do the very best to accommodate your needs.

Assist you with a letter of reference for a student or alumni

Before you provide a letter of recommendation, please ensure that you have the student’s permission by completing the following consent form:

Recommendation/Evaluation Authorization and Waiver

Career Services would like to share this resource with you from our national organization, the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). This is a guide to assist you as you begin to receive reference letter requests and provide letters for our graduates. 

Reference Letter Packet

The Faculty Reference Letter Packet has three sections:

WHAT CAN A FACULTY MEMBER SAY OR WRITE?

  • Reference letters are like performance letters for our students
  • Make sure the information is disclosed to individuals who need to know

TIPS FOR PROVIDING REFERENCES

  • Obtain consent from the student and discuss the type of reference you can provide (general vs. glowing)
  • Adhere to FERPA and DO NOT provide any information regarding educational information unless you have consent from the student.
  • Document all the information you release to the employer(s)

SAMPLE REFERENCE LETTER

  • To be used as a guide
  • Great resource for adjunct faculty or other faculty and staff members who will be providing reference letters for the first time

Thank you again for assisting our students on their pathway to the success of their chosen career.

 We look forward to working with you in providing classroom presentations and/or workshops for your students.
