Faculty & Staff

Here to help

Like you, we want to see our students and alumni be successful. The Career Development Center is here to support faculty and staff as you assist students in applying their education to career opportunities.

Career Events

The Career Development Center hosts a number of career-related events throughout the year. We offer career-advancing opportunities for students, networking events, industry-specific workshops, information sessions, and more! 

Do you have an idea for an event? If so, fill out our event questionnaire so we can better assist you.  

Cascades Edge Activities and Assignments

Cascades Edge engages students through a menu of action steps to do each year. We tried to make the checklists as comprehensive as possible, but perhaps you are doing something unique in your class(es) that we missed! Let us know if you have an assignment or activity that can be added to the checklist.

If you'd like to create a specific career and self-development activity or assignment for your course(s), we are here to help! Together we can brainstorm ways to integrate career-readiness skills and competencies into any course.

To inquire about either of these options, please fill out this brief questionnaire.  

Career Counseling

Do students come to you for advice and input regarding major and/or career decisions? We help students explore major and career options and strategize action steps to further discover their interests, career goals, skills, values, and personality and how they relate to certain majors and their career plan.

Career Resources

Do your students need assistance with application materials for internships, jobs and/or graduate school? The majority of our time is spent assisting students in understanding how to best articulate their past successes and future potential throughout their applications. Please encourage your students to schedule an appointment with a career counselor to review their materials and develop their skills. We also have a variety of career-related resources available online and in our office for both you and your students. Anything from learning about what to include on a resume, how to write a cover letter, how to prepare for an interview, what to include in a personal statement for graduate school, and much more!

Career Presentations

We can bring our information and resources directly to your class. We specialize in customized and standard presentations to classes and student organizations about a host of career-related topics such as resume writing, job search strategies, interviewing skills, and “What Can I Do With My Degree?".  Please fill out this form to let us know what we can bring to your class.

Mock Interview Class Assignment Option

Assignments are always a great way to get students to engage in the career development process.  One that has become particularly popular with our faculty/staff is StandOut, an interactive online video-based interviewing tool which uses a webcam to record a practice interview (we have a webcam available in our office for students to use if they don’t have one). StandOut allows faculty to either select pre-recorded questions or record specific questions themselves for students to answer. Student interviews are recorded and can then be shared, reviewed and scored. Contact us if you are interested in using this tool in your classroom.
