As a JWU faculty member, you play a big role mentoring JWU students toward career success. There are a number of ways we can work together to prepare students for internships, jobs and other networking opportunities in their field of interest.
How Can EE&CS Help Faculty?
Request a Guest Speaker We bring industry professionals into your class or student club to present on a number of professional topics, including current industry trends specific to your course. An EE&CS staff member can also present on career topics, including internships, professionalism and more. Request a speaker.
Internships Formalize your industry connections by setting up a student internship site. We work with you to provide seamless services to students preparing for and participating in internships. Email us with an internship.
Meet Employers At all JWU career events, faculty have VIP access up to 30 minutes before the event to network with top employers and company representatives. To attend, check our upcoming career events.
How Can EE&CS Help My Students?
Career Advising The most successful JWU students meet with us in one-on-one advising sessions at least twice a year. Encourage your students to visit EE&CS.
Networking Opportunities Help your students find internships and jobs at our career fairs, panel discussions and presentations. Remind them to check our upcoming career events.
Internship Preparation Students need time to polish resumes, search and apply for an internship, and partner with a faculty advisor. Remind your students to apply for internship two terms in advance.
Job Opportunities Point your students to our job listings, that have thousands of internships, part-time work, and full-time jobs just for JWU students, as they start their job search.
Career Management Course Encourage students to take their Capstone course as juniors. They’ll be more prepared for the internship process and their job search, so they should register for Capstone early.
Resumes Use these resume examples with confidence, knowing that they have been vetted by faculty and endorsed by industry professionals. Refer your students to a career advisor for a one-on-one resume critique, or a resume workshop so they’re ready to interview with internship employers.
Site Visits for your Class Contact us to arrange site visits to relevant employers.
Internship Support Fund Your student's career success starts with a good internship. He or she should choose the best internship opportunity, regardless of whether it's paid or unpaid. Encourage your student to ask about our fund to help with the costs of an unpaid internship.
Faculty members play a crucial role in hands-on learning. As internship advisors, they partner with our career experts to mentor, support and grade students during their internship term. Faculty can explore these frequently asked questions. read more
