At the CEDAR Center we see our faculty as vital partners in preparing our students for their transition into today's complex and competitive job market. Below are some suggestions of creative ways you can partner with us beyond sharing job and internship information with students.
Invite a CEDAR Center Staff Member or One of Our Employer Partners into Your Classroom
If you are considering innovative ways to compliment your syllabus, consider inviting a member of our staff, or a professional from one of our employer partners to present a career related topic in your classroom. Presentations can include:
Give Students Assignments or Credit for Attending Career Related Activities
An excellent way to assist students in making the connection between their academic studies and "real world" work place issues is to give them assignments to attend career development activities.
Partner with CEDAR by Joining the Faculty/Staff Community on BisonCareerLink
This year we have added a Faculty/Staff Community on BisonCareerLink - the web-based Career Management System used by CEDAR to connect students with employment opportunities, participate in career fairs and training workshops, and sign up for on-campus interviews. While in the past this service was limited to student users, Faculty and Staff of Howard University can now be actively engaged in this Career Services Community to serve as Faculty Career Mentors, have access to jobs and internships specific to your disciplines and refer these opportunities to your students.
The Faculty/Staff Community on BisonCareerLink is our newest addition to our list of partnership initiatives to bring all Career Services stakeholders together in one common place. To be a part of this community all you need to do is:
Once we have verified your association with Howard University as a member of the Faculty or Staff we will issue you access to this new world of career opportunities for your students.
