Students benefit from the professional collaborations between Career Development and campus partners in academic and non-academic departments. We as professionals also benefit as we work together to build towards a students’ career success. Help us connect with your students from their first-year on campus, to the time they are about to graduate, and beyond.
Career Development has various resources for you as faculty and staff to utilize. We encourage you to take advantage of them as you work with students in your departments. We also have an employer relations team that can work with recruiters that contact you directly. We understand your time and resources may be limited and handling recruiter inquiries is not your primary role on campus. However, it is our role in Career Development and we have the infrastructure to assist them for you.
Refer an Employer: Periodically employers will contact you directly and while you may not have the resources and time to adequately respond to their needs, rest assured we do. Referring employers to us will help increase their visibility on campus and give students greater access to employment opportunities. We are also knowledgeable of the legal, regulatory, and ethical challenges to avoid.
If you have an employer partner wishing to recruit NSU Sharks, please refer them to our Employer Relations Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or (954) 262-7201. We are happy to connect them to a variety of recruiting programs as well as work with them through our Recruiter Concierge Services.
