What is a Career Champion?
- A faculty or staff member on campus that assists students in finding a job, internship, or experiential experience.
- A faculty of staff member that already includes resume writing and career development/professionalism into their course curriculum.
- A faculty or staff member that wants to assist students in succeeding in their life beyond La Salle.
What are the 3 goals of Career Champions?
- To provide consistent career readiness services to students across campus.
- Help to maintain the quality and messaging put forth by the Career Center
- Scale career services to a larger population of students without adding more personnel or monetary resources.
How does a faculty or staff member become Career Champion Certified?
Attend both of the below workshops that are given by the Career Center throughout the academic year. You may attend in any order, but both need to be attended for certification.
This first part of this session takes a deep dive into resume writing techniques for today’s
workforce and common applicant tracking systems. We will cover resume format, bullet-writing structure, and
key items that employers want to see on a resume. The second half of the workshop will focus on La Salle’s
definition of Career Readiness and our common Career Readiness competencies to use across campus inside
and outside of the classroom moving forward.
During this session, attendees will learn about the services that the Career Center offers to the La
Salle student body. We will discuss each service type, our major and career exploration resources, and take
an in-depth look at how to use Handshake to assist students in finding a job/internship on or off campus. In
addition, we will introduce our faculty/staff menu of available partnership services if you are interested in
including more career development projects into your curriculum.
