Employer Advisory Board

VCU Career Services is seeking to enhance our partnerships through discussion and collaboration. Our goals are to enhance relationships among employers, Career Services and the University; to provide information to strengthen employer brand recognition efforts; and to solicit feedback for the effective delivery of career services to employers and students.

Topics may include:

  • Best practices regarding employer engagement and recruitment processes.
  • Guidance on the skill sets and employability factors students must possess to be successful in the workplace.
  • Current economic and business trends and how they relate to the recruitment process.
  • Experiential learning opportunities and programs.
  • Employer needs and perspectives and how a university can best meet these.
  • How to best prepare students to succeed during their internship and job search, plus expectations for success once they are hired.
  • Generate new ideas.
