Ways for Employers to get Involved
Career Fair - March 1, 2012
Whether your business is currently hiring or not, a university career fair is a great place to begin networking relationships with quality, future employees. The college and university is also one of the richest environments to get exposure for your business. Be a part of this captive audience at Belhaven University’s Career Fair. This fair takes place each spring semester. Register for the career fair online.
Help a student master the art of the interview, practicing something they find intimidating. Donate your time to Belhaven’s Mock Interview Program. Your involvement can greatly impact a student’s career future. There will be increasing opportunities for this. Please let us know your interest and we’ll work with your schedule.
Want a great opportunity to train a future employee? Internships can be paid or unpaid for the students. Provide them with amazing real life experience and an opportunity to earn academic credit. Belhaven alumni are known throughout the business community for their grounded and principled worldview. You may advertise your internship opportunity on Belhaven’s College Central Network (link?). Internships for academic credit must go through an approval process. For more information, please contact Career Services.
Cast a Job Shadow
You don’t have the time or resources to dedicate to a part-time or full-time intern, but you still want to make a difference in a Belhaven student’s life? Try Job Shadowing. You can dedicate one or up to three days of your choice and allow a student to shadow you while you work. There is very little preparation required on your part and the student can learn about your job just by watching you do what you’d normally be doing anyway.
Speak into the Future
Love what you do? Are you an expert or passionate about a work-related topic? Chances are there’s a Belhaven student who could learn from your experience. Just step up to the podium and volunteer to be one of our topical speakers. It’s low impact on your schedule and high impact on our student’s future.
“Like” us on Facebook at Belhaven Career Services and connect with students through professional advice. We’re looking for “Tips of the Day” or other helpful short paragraphs. This can contain real insight into various companies and how to succeed within them. For example, help train students in the appropriate way to present themselves on Facebook. This generation puts value in what they see here.
