Career-Related Classroom Assignments


Welcome to Faculty Resources, career related classroom assignments for undergraduates. Faculty Resources encourages students to participate in individual career-focused activities as well as workshops to gain the knowledge and skills to obtain experiential opportunities as early as possible in their academic careers. We know that students who obtain relevant work experience and connect with employers while in school often find themselves better prepared and more competitive upon graduation.

One of the Career and Professional Development Center's goals is to help bridge academic and career development, while improving the career and graduate outcomes instrumental to the strategic plans of academic departments. To assist this process, we've gathered several career-related assignments that are "ready to go" or can be modified to meet specific needs. They come with student resources, grading rubrics, and other aides to facilitate teaching.
