5 Ideas for Faculty/CDC Collaboration

Request a Presentation 
CDC staff members are available to collaborate on designing specialized workshops, such as sessions for students pursuing the same major. We are also available to provide presentations to academic classes. Contact your liaison or email the CDC to request a presentation.

Share Opportunities for Students
For faculty interested in viewing the opportunities currently available to students, the CDC can provide access to Handshake, our online portal for jobs, internships, and resources. Please also feel free to forward internship and job opportunities you receive to the CDC for posting. Contact us if you have questions or need assistance.

Advising Partnerships
Our counseling and advising staff support students as they reflect on their experiences and plan next steps. We also support students who have questions or concerns that arise during off-campus internship and work experiences. Please feel free to refer students to the CDC, or to contact the CDC with questions that arise during student advising.

We are available and eager to consult with faculty developing Lynk and career-related programming. We are also available to consult on employment and hiring trends and topics, and to help with promoting career-related events. Contact your liaison or email the CDC to arrange a consultation.

Connect with Employers and Alumnae
We can facilitate connections with employers and are available to advise students on how to make the most of networking opportunities on campus and beyond. Contact us for more information.

10 Ways the CDC Helps Students

  1. Internship and Job Searches. We assist students with designing individualized searches, and guide students through the MHC internship funding process.

  2. Recruiting Events. Opportunities include career fairs, employer site visits, information sessions, and interviews.

  3. Student Employment. Students seeking on-campus jobs can access opportunities and guidance at the CDC.

  5. Networking. Networking can be fun, and it doesn’t have to be daunting. We provide coaching on networking strategies and ways to connect with professionals and alumnae.

  6. Career Counseling. We help students explore possibilities and gather information on career fields. We also administer interest and personality assessments if desired (such as StrengthsFinder and MBTI).

  7. Graduate School and Pre-Law Advising. We also offer practice sessions for standardized admissions exams.
