Do you wish you could better help your students with their career decision making? When you talk with students about their career plans, do you wish you had some tangible tools in your toolbox? Become a Career Champion! Career Champion is a campus wide program designed to visibly identify faculty and staff who are especially equipped to assist students with career decision making.

The Career Champion training workshop engages participants in a tailored curriculum designed to provide them with knowledge about the career development process and the foundations of employability, as well as teaching best practices for having career conversations with students. Participants will learn valuable helping skills, goal setting techniques, ethical practices, and how best to make referrals to available resources.

Career Champions will also leave with resources they can use in their own professional career. Those who complete the training program will receive a Career Champion decal to display in their office, inviting students to approach them to discuss career related issues. (NOTE: This is a 2 part workshop)
