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 CDC , 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

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 CDC can assist you in meeting your goals for the semester.

Writing Letters of Recommendation/References

The CDC 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!

Mentoring Network

The Mentoring Network is a service available through the Alumni Office.  This program offers students an opportunity to connect with alumni working in a specific field or prospective occupation.  Alumni volunteer for this service and offer support to students and faculty in the following ways:

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

For more information on the Mentoring Network and to find out you can get involved, contact the Career Development Center or the Alumni Office.
