November is National Career Development Month!
New series encourages students, grads and alumni to take ownership of their careers!
November is being celebrated as National Career Development Month and we’ve added a number of special events and activities to your career community to give you additional opportunities to make a difference in your alumni’s lives.
On each Tuesday in November we are focusing on career exploration and planning
The format is slightly different then the Career Speaker Series. On the first Tuesday of November we’ll have a presentation by a well-known author and then follow up the next Tuesday with a panel discussion with certified career coaches who will share their thoughts and insights to the author’s presentation and field questions on the audience. We’ll repeat that schedule the third and fourth Tuesday.
We’ve also lined up a number of career coaches who will be manning the discussion boards to answer additional questions from the audience. We anticipate a great deal of conversation and ideas flowing!
This is an excellent promotion that enables you to:
- Build the alumni brand around career programming and use it to engage alumni.
- Connect with the Career Center and encourage students to join your career community.
As with all series your team does not need to be involved in any of the planning, or management of the series. We’ll provide you marketing materials to share with your career center and to include in your newsletters, social media marketing channels and to hand out at events.
Here’s the schedule of events for Career Development Month
