How the Career Development Center Serves You:
Our wide range of sponsorship packages allow you to customize an engagement plan that best meets the needs of your organization. Depending on your desired sponsorship level, the opportunities include:
Career Networking Night
Career Networking Night (CNN) is devoted to building relationships. Employers network with students, alumni, faculty and staff to share potential internship, part- and/or full-time opportunities. CNN allows employers to meet with students from all different majors, develop and cultivate long-term relationships within the College of Business, actively promote their organization on campus and advertise opportunities.
The Etiquette Dinner is designed to ensure students can communicate and exhibit proper business etiquette. Employers may purchase tables at the event where representatives from the organization sit with College of Business students. An etiquette specialist provides training throughout the meal on a relevant subject. This is a fun and unique event that combines professional development with networking opportunities.
The Career Development Center partners with a local retailer to offer discounts on professional clothing. Many students need financial assistance in order to afford the professional clothing that is often required for many business professions. A portion of certain partnerships are designated as clothing stipends, which are awarded to these students.
Partners may host a table in Dwire Hall, schedule on-campus interviews and/or hold office hours on campus. Visits are specialized to the needs of the organization. Contact Career Development Center Director Megan Muller at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your visit today!
Throughout the academic year, the Career Development Center hosts a variety of workshops. These workshops may focus on resume writing, interview preparation, networking, personal branding, LinkedIn, ethics, etc. Employers can participate in an established workshop or develop and host a workshop of their own choosing in collaboration with the Career Development Center.
Dwire Hall has several electronic screens throughout the building and various electronic communications that are sent to students. Partners may be recognized on our donor wall, by general email messages and/or through the promotion of specific internship or employment opportunities on these screens.
The Career Development Center has a virtual donor wall on the Center's website. Sponsors that reach a certain level will be recognized on the donor wall.
Employer Advisory Committee and R.O.A.R. Program Advisory Board
Annual partners will be provided with a seat on the Employer Advisory Committee, and certain sponsors will also participate on the R.O.A.R. Program Advisory Board. These groups provide a community perspective and act as a sounding board for ideas, issues, curriculum ideas, and brainstorming sessions to ensure the Career Development Center is meeting the needs of the local business community.
Partners may place promotional materials in the Career Development Center office for students.
Other events for student athletes, veterans, and/or specific student populations may be offered throughout the year. Depending on engagement options, employers may also conduct tailored events in collaboration with the Career Development Center.
