How to Engage

Students are often compelled to take action after a conversation with a trusted
professor, advisor or faculty member. By partnering with our office and emphasizing
the importance of engaging in professional development early in their academic
careers, you can make an enormous impact.

How to Write a Recommendation Letter

As the frontline of the university, you often observe key areas such as a student’s punctuality, ability to work with others and how they confront challenges. For students with little or no professional experience, professors and co-op or internship supervisors become likely candidates to write letters of reference on the student's behalf.

Refer Students

Faculty can be advocates for the free services available to students and alumni through the Office of Career Services. Encourage students to use these resources as early as possible in their academic careers, such as resume reviews, career counseling appointments, career fairs, and career-related events and webinars. Even better - consider making career fair or event attendance a required class assignment or extra credit opportunity.

3

Refer Employers to Handshake

Recruiters and alumni may reach out to you with job postings. We encourage you to forward these requests to our team to add to our career management platform, Handshake. This will allow us to establish and maintain relationships with employers that wish to recruit and hire Southeastern students and alumni.
