Welcome Faculty!

Our mission is to "help students develop, evaluate, and implement their professional and career plans."

We do that through a variety of programs and services in the Career Center, through presentations in classroom settings, and at student organizational meetings.

Classroom Presentations

Throughout the academic year we are invited into the classroom to present information on such diverse topics as:

  • Resumes
  • Cover Letters
  • References
  • Interviewing
  • Graduate School Information
  • Job Search Strategies
  • Portfolio Development
  • How to be Successful at a Job Fair
  • Social Media/Networking

Topics are relevant to student concerns and the content can be tailored to meet the needs of your specific class/major. If you have considered providing career/internship related information to your classes, please contact us at X1484 or by email at career@ship.edu to discuss how the Career Center can assist you in meeting your goals for the semester.

Writing Letters of Recommendation/References

The Career Center realizes faculty are often approached by students and asked to serve as professional references. Here are some tips and suggestions for writing reference letters for your students!

  • Informational Interviewing
  • Internships
  • Guest Speaker in Class
  • Speaker for Club/Organization
  • Mentoring
  • Email Correspondence
  • Conducting Resume/Cover Letter Critiques
  • Conducting Mock or Practice Interviews
