Career Development On-Demand

Flowers bloom in the Prairie Plot on campus.

NOW is the right time for Career Planning!
The Bastian Family Career Center is now offering Career Development On-Demand, an exciting and interactive way for us to provide valuable career development to your student organization, residence hall, team, group or department. You give us the specifics, and we will do the rest!

To organize an On-Demand career development workshop, all you need to do is complete the online Career Development On-Demand Workshop Request form, and we will contact you to arrange the details.

Who is This For?
First-year, sophomore, junior, and senior students are invited. Any group on campus is able to take advantage of Career Development On-Demand. Whether you are a large registered student organization with 50 members, a smaller just-getting-started group of 15, or a group of 10 friends in the same major, we will present a workshop for you. The perfect thing for sororities and fraternities as well!

When & Where?
You tell us! We would love for your group to see where the Bastian Family Career Center is, observe first-hand its resources, and become more comfortable with its environment. If that's not feasible, let us know where on campus you meet, and we will be there. If you prefer, we can reserve a space for your group, just let us know. Our schedules are somewhat flexible - we can usually work with you.

What?
We have a variety of workshop topics to choose from. They include, but are not limited to:
