Faculty and Staff
Career Services is eager to partner with Bristol faculty and staff to enhance students’ career education and to forge collaborative relationships with employers. Consider engaging with Career Services in one or more of the following ways:
Share Employer Contacts
Employers are often interested in engaging directly with faculty and existing curriculum. Career Services staff are happy to refer employers to faculty and hope faculty will also refer them to Career Services! Referring an employer to Career Services encourages them to consider Bristol as a resource to find talent. They have the ability to post jobs, participate in job fairs, set up a recruitment table, or work with Career Services staff to organize a presentation, conduct on-campus interviews, and more.
Attend Career Events
Career Services welcomes faculty and staff to all recruiting events as an opportunity to network with employers and to see students in action. Upcoming events are listed on our Events and Workshops Calendar.
Refer Students to Career Services
Career Services offers students many tools and resources to help them through the career development process. Many tools are available online. Visit the Students & Alumni page for more details.
Faculty and staff are encouraged to refer students to make an individual appointment with a career counselor and to participate in career activities. Please see the Events and Workshops Calendar. Contact Career Services by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 774.357.2959.
Focus 2 Career Assessment Tool
Focus 2 is the primary career assessment tool for students. It can help students select a major based their interests and aspirations, discover occupations that match their personal preferences, map out career plans and make informed decisions.
We invite you to watch the video tour for students, below.
New Focus 2 Module: Am I Career Ready? The new module is based on the NACE Career Readiness Competencies and is now Live in your Focus 2 Career account! We suggest you view the recorded video tour or join a live webinar to learn more about using the new module, customizing options and running detailed reports.
Take Advantage of VoiceThread for Student Access
Career Services is using a creative tool that will greatly enhance the way students access and consume its programs and services and assist students with career readiness by using VoiceThread.
VoiceThread is a collaborative, multimedia slide show that holds images, documents, and videos and allows people to navigate slides and leave comments in 5 ways - using voice (with a mic or telephone), text, audio file, or video (via a webcam).
Voice Thread is allowing Career Services to reach a much broader audience. Faculty, staff and students can access this information anytime and anywhere. From an open VoiceThread, you can listen to comments, record comments of your own, and even access the settings for that VoiceThread.
Here are the Titles of each VT that’s been created along with the Share URL. You can access the Voice Thread by clicking on the URL listed below.
