What Can Career Development Do for You and Your Department?

There are many opportunities for Spalding University faculty and the Career Development Center to work together and build collaborative relationships that will benefit all Spalding University students and alumni. Career Development will be happy to meet with individual faculty or departments to discuss the services we offer.

  • Visit your class or department to make presentations.
  • Help connect your students to professionals in their field.
  • Hold special workshops and events for students in your department.  
  • Respond to employer and recruiter inquiries.
  • Send personalized Job Flash information to students in your department.
  • Work with Alumni from your majors to stay connected to Spalding University.
  • Help students prepare for and find internships and job shadowing experiences.
  • Post-undergraduate data and insights
  • Career Statistics about employment, internships, and volunteer work.

Refer Potential Employers

Often, employers reach out directly to University departments with job postings. We encourage you to forward these requests to the Career Development Center for potential inclusion in our database. This ensures that all students have equitable access to opportunities and that each employer has multiple connections to Spalding University which helps to build partnerships.

We encourage employers to list all open positions and internships on our College Central Network virtual job board. This allows uo to maintain relationships with organizations and invite them to Career Development events like the Career Expos. If you are contacted by and employer, or want to refer an employer, feel free to send them the contact information for the Career Development office and send them the link to our Employers section of our page.
