Don't Cancel Class

Missing classes can sometimes be unavoidable during the school year. Before you decide to cancel class, consider another rewarding option for your students. Career Services offers a “Don‟t Cancel Class” program that can present on a variety of career related topics. Most workshops are adjustable between 50 minutes up to an hour & a half. These topics are delivered in a fun interactive format that balances between lecture, group discussions, activities, & self-reflection. Career Services will meet with your class during its regular class time, take attendance, present on a topic of your choice, and provide students with an evaluation of the workshop. Afterwards, we will provide the professor with a list of who attended class, along with a copy of the evaluation.

  • Effective cover letters and resumes
  • Interviewing strategies
  • Networking and LinkedIn
  • How to market your liberal studies degree
  • From major to career
  • Resources for finding your career direction
  • Internships - what they are and how to get one

Teague Whalen

Many semesters I have asked Deborah to come in to speak to our graduating BLA seniors in our Humanities Capstone course, and every time the students are grateful for taking away an understanding of how to better market their interdisciplinary degree in order to apply to specific graduate programs or careers. The students leave with more possibilities of how and where to go to find the next doors that may open to their future’s next chapter.
