Presentations and Classroom Assignments
We encourage you to incorporate career -related assignments into your curriculum and welcome the opportunity to discuss ways we can assist you in making this a good learning experience for your students. If you add assignments that require students to use Career Services (i.e. have a resume critiqued through Career Express, use materials in the resource room, request an appointment) we ask that you notify us about the assignment and the date the assignment is due. This will not only ensure the staff is aware of the assignment but it will also help us prepare for those time periods where there may be increased student traffic, due to a specific assignment.
Career Services welcomes the opportunity to bring career information into your classroom. Our presentation portfolio includes the following topics:
Career Services Overview

Presentation Day/Time Options
Presentations may be requested Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:00AM and 7:00PM. Saturday and Sunday presentations are considered on a case by case basis. Due to heavy demands for presentations, please submit your request at least two weeks (10 business days) before your requested presentation date to allow Career Services time to assign a presenter. Once a presenter has been confirmed you will receive an e-mail with the name of staff member conducting the presentation.
Presentation requests during Prepare for the Fair weeks, Career Fair weeks, and Thanksgiving Week will be accepted on a case-by-case basis.
