Faculty and staff

What can you do to help your students? How can students prepare for their careers?

VCU Career Services is currently short-staffed and will not be able to fulfill one-time program and workshop requests outside of specific classroom presentations with faculty and pre-scheduled events with campus partners at this time. If you would like to make a formal presentation request for this semester, please fill out our Request a Presentation Google Form and someone from our team will be back in touch with you within the week. We ask for at least two weeks notice prior to any program so we can assign a staff member and they can plan appropriately. We thank you for your patience and look forward to working with you again soon.

We recognize the powerful impact VCU faculty can have and we want to be your partner in the success of VCU students. We have a shared desire to prepare VCU students to enter the world of work as highly sought-after professionals. 

We know that you’ve got a lot on your plate. Maybe you know how to help students, but you don’t have the time to work with them one-on-one. Or maybe you have students asking questions about the job market that you’re not quite sure you have the answers to. 

Resources for faculty and staff

We understand that as faculty members you are interested in teaching students both in and outside of the classroom. You recognize that the student’s journey doesn’t end at graduation. You also know that success in the workforce requires that your students understand more than what they learn in class.

So how can you prepare your students with the career competencies that today’s employers are expecting? What are the critical career skills your students need for success? Look over our career curriculum information below to learn how to integrate career development activities into your syllabus.
