Career Advising Resources
CES strives to empower students to make informed choices about career options and employment opportunities. We encourage you to refer students to CES early and often (beginning in their first year!) to take advantage of our career services, including:
Letters of Reference/Student Employment Issues
NACE Faculty Guide to Ethical and Legal Standards in Student Hiring
Looking for speakers to visit your class? CES can coordinate - with appropriate notification - a presentation tailored specifically to your class. Sample topics include "major" career opportunities, resume & cover letters, the job search process, and mock interviewing. Our staff can also provide you with a list of alumni volunteers (sorted by major, career field, or employer) who would be appropriate for your class presentation needs. Contact CES for more details.
Finally, CES can also work with academic departments to develop special presentations for faculty/staff. We would be happy to give an overview of our services. Other sample topics include the internship program, portfolios & letters of recommendation, and the on-campus recruiting program.
Do you know where your students are?
We find that we are most successful in assisting students with academic and career planning when we follow the successes of our Puget Sound graduates. Each spring, we track the career and graduate school plans of the current graduating class. If you have the inside scoop on the plans of a student, drop us a line or call us at 253.879.3161.
Do you know of companies who would like to recruit Puget Sound students? Would you like to bring an employer into your classroom?
Often times, employers will contact faculty members directly hoping to make direct connections with Puget Sound students. If you are contacted by an employer, please pass that contact information on to CES so we can offer that employer access to our entire range of services. Also, you may want to review the NACE Faculty Guide to Ethical and Legal Standards in Student Hiring.
Many employers offer to speak to classes, present case studies and meet one-on-one with faculty members at Puget Sound.
If you are interested in making these kinds of connections with an employer, please contact CES at 253.879.3161.
