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:
- Career Planning
- Workplace Simulations or Exercises
- Myers-Briggs Training
- Field Specific Success Strategies
- Resume Writing
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.
Many faculty members assign students to attend career fairs, career development workshops, employer information sessions, and lectures given by workforce leaders. See our calendar of events for current listings of events and activities.
Assist Employers in Connecting with the CEDAR Center
Some of the greatest employer contacts in the CEDAR Center have come from faculty members who have advised employers to work with our office.
Suggested Ways to Assist Employers In Connecting With the CEDAR Center:
- Have the employer review our website at www.howard.edu/careerservices to provide them with a comprehensive overview of our office and its services.
- Advise the employer to contact Mr. Ladi Sanu, our Campus Recruitment Coordinator at 202.806.7513 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mr. Sanu or another OCR team member will assist the employer in scheduling an on-campus recruitment initiative, advise employers on upcoming career fairs, suggest recruitment strategies, and advise employers on other campus activities they may participate in.
- Advise employers to register with the CEDAR Center through Bison Careers Online to post jobs and internship listings to Howard University student community. Employers may also email these postings to email@example.com for email distribution, but this process requires manual listing which will reduce the length of time students can have access to the opportunities.
