Start planning programs and events that will engage students in career services more regularly.
The schools that are the most successful in helping their students develop professionally are those that engage them early and often. In this webcast, you will learn about three initiatives that Loyola Marymount University has successfully employed to better serve their students: industry-specific networking events, summer engagement, and off-campus career treks. You will leave with practical advice on how to launch these initiatives at your own institution.
Who Should Attend
This program is designed for career services departments who want to engage students more frequently but aren’t sure where to begin. You will leave with ideas on how students can get more out of your career services offerings.
In the webcast, Branden Grimmett will walk you through four keys to success for each of the following career services initiatives:
- Industry-specific networking events
- Summer engagement opportunities
- Off-campus career treks
Branden’s work in the field of career services has been widely featured in publications such as USA Today and The Wall Street Journal. He’ll be ready to help you brainstorm how to overcome obstacles and engage key partners in order to ensure the success of these initiatives.
