Building Career Skills for your Departments/Majors/Minors

Going to a conference or meeting and need a substitute teacher to cover for you?
Career Services can help you by stepping into your classes as a substitute teacher.
Rather than cancel class, we can hand out in class assignments or other class materials.
Of course we will take this opportunity to plug Career Services and connect with
your students. Two weeks advance notice is required and is based upon availability.

How you can help Career Services help your students:
- Identify alumni who may want to participate in career panels/events. Students love to hear from and interact with successful alumni in their fields of interest. Please refer any alumni from your program who you think would be good speakers for career-related events, and we'll follow up with them.
- Meet with employers interested in hiring your students. Employers periodically express interest in engaging key faculty from a variety of academic departments. Let us know if you'd be interested in such employer interactions and we will make the connection happen.
- Encourage your students to use Career Services. Many students seek out their faculty for career guidance which is great. Please also encourage them to also take advantage of the resources and programs we offer in Career Services.
- Include HIRE USCB and USCB Career Services links In Your Syllabus
- Promote and Support the Career Compass Squad: The Career Compass Squad is comprised of volunteer student leaders who serve as liaisons between Career Services and the student body of the University of South Carolina Beaufort.
