Faculty & Staff
We recognize how many career-related questions can come up when you are advising students. While you can always refer a student to our office, we also encourage advisors to take advantage of the multiple resources available to you as a faculty and staff member at the University. To get started, you may want to familiarize yourself with:
Career Partners Program – Faculty and staff are invited to attend one of the Career Partners Programs offered throughout the year, or request one for their department. This interactive workshop aims to support career-related conversations with students and explores several topics centered around career design and education, the future of work, career readiness, and experiential learning. In addition to being featured in our upcoming Career Partners Profiles on social media, faculty and staff who complete the program will also receive an invitation to our Career Partners Happy Hour along with a gift bag to thank you for your partnership!
Exploratory Community – This Career Community focuses on helping students to identify options related to some of the more typical questions you might hear like ‘what career should I consider?’, ‘what should I major in?’, and ‘what can I do with that major?’. Students should be encouraged to explore and join any of the career communities that interest them.
Handshake – All faculty and staff can request a student account to access this career exploration, job and internship posting, and employer connection tool.
Parents & Families
Parents and Families are important to a student’s experience at Rochester. You can strengthen connections with your student by:
- Encouraging them to explore job and internship opportunities within Handshake.
- Motivating them to start building their network within the UR community through The Meliora Collective.
- Helping them understand the importance of career exploration and advising through 1:1 appointments and drop-in hours at the Greene Center.
- Exploring industries, career paths and ideas through our Career Communities.
- Regularly checking our calendar for upcoming events on and off-campus.
