Partner With Us

At the CLDC, we know that collaboration with faculty and staff is essential to our goal of engaging with students early, often and forever. Best practice in career development calls for infusing professional training into every aspect of a student’s education. It’s a daunting charge, but our office isn’t holding back in its efforts to fully integrate with OHIO’s colleges and support units. In order to do this, we rely on lasting partnerships—and we're always seeking innovative approaches to reaching students. Below you will see some common ways faculty and staff partner with our team.

Refer Students to the CLDC

Be an advocate for the CLDC by promoting our services and events to students and alumni.  Consider recommending career coaching or mock interviews as excellent one-on-one professional development opportunities. Topics often addressed in these meetings include: connecting career opportunities to specific majors, building self-awareness, perfecting written application materials, developing professional skills for effective interviewing, and using LinkedIn to research alumni career paths.
