Becoming a Family Partner

Support your students’ career development process in many ways! We strive to foster Spartan Ready competencies through our services and programs. Here are some key things to keep in mind for your student:


Encourage your student to get connected with Career Services starting their first year so they can begin the process of career exploration: connecting who they are as a person with meaningful career options that align with their values, interests, personality, skills, strengths and motivations. 
»Exploration resources, programs and services


Your student can meaningfully engage in his or her academics and extracurricular activities. Most students start figuring out who they are and where they’re going through class projects, clubs and organizations, volunteering and doing one of the most important things for post-college success: getting an internship.


There are many opportunities for students to build relationships with employers by checking out our events calendar to see when employer-student events are happening, develop excellent job search strategies (page under construction) and ultimately land a great job upon graduation.
