Career Development Workshop Request

Did you know that career development staff is willing and able to come to your class, practice, organization meeting, etc. to speak on personal and professional development topics?

We are happy to partner with faculty, staff, and students to present to small or large groups. Below you will find a menu of programs to choose from and we can customize a program or workshop to meet your needs! You can also feel free to combine one or more of our offerings.

Most sessions will take an hour, but can be adjusted to a shorter or longer timeframe based on your needs.

To ensure availability, we ask that you submit your request at least two weeks in advance.
