Bridging the Gap
Engagement, development and partnership opportunities to help our students become your employees.

The College of Business Career Development Center focuses on helping students plan for their careers, while connecting businesses and students to provide opportunities for their futures. 

20-21 Engagement Opportunities

Our wide range of sponsorship packages allow you to customize an engagement plan that best meets the needs of your organization. Depending on your desired sponsorship level, the opportunities include:
  • Career Networking Night

    Career Networking Night (CNN) is devoted to building relationships. Employers network with students, alumni, faculty and staff to share potential internship, part- and/or full-time opportunities. CNN allows employers to meet with students from all different majors, develop and cultivate long-term relationships within the College of Business, actively promote their organization on campus and advertise opportunities.

  • Etiquette Dinner

    The Etiquette Dinner is designed to ensure students can communicate and exhibit proper business etiquette. Employers may purchase tables at the event where representatives from the organization sit with College of Business students. An etiquette specialist provides training throughout the meal on a relevant subject. This is a fun and unique event that combines professional development with networking opportunities.

  • Finals Lounge

    During finals week in both the fall and spring, the Career Development Center hosts a Finals Lounge providing students with food and a place to relax between exams. Depending on the engagement level, employers may display marketing materials, provide giveaways, and have representation in the student finals lounge area.

  • Clothing Stipend

    The Career Development Center partners with a local retailer to offer discounts on professional clothing. Many students need financial assistance in order to afford the professional clothing that is often required for many business professions. A portion of certain partnerships are designated as clothing stipends, which are awarded to these students.

  • Campus Visits

    Partners may host a table in Dwire Hall, schedule on-campus interviews and/or hold office hours on campus. Visits are specialized to the needs of the organization.

  • Workshops

    Throughout the academic year, the Career Development Center hosts a variety of workshops. These workshops may focus on resume writing, interview preparation, networking, personal branding, LinkedIn, ethics, etc. Employers can participate in an established workshop or develop and host a workshop of their own choosing in collaboration with the Career Development Center.

  • Recognition

    Dwire Hall has several electronic screens throughout the building and various electronic communications that are sent to students. Partners may be recognized on our donor wall, by general email messages and/or through the promotion of specific internship or employment opportunities on these screens.

  • Donor Wall

    The Career Development Center has a virtual donor wall on the Center's website. Sponsors that reach a certain level will be recognized on the donor wall. 

  • Employer Advisory Committee and R.O.A.R. Program Advisory Board

    Annual partners will be provided with a seat on the Employer Advisory Committee, and certain sponsors will also participate on the R.O.A.R. Program Advisory Board. These groups provide a community perspective and act as a sounding board for ideas, issues, curriculum ideas, and brainstorming sessions to ensure the Career Development Center is meeting the needs of the local business community.

  • Student Clubs

    The College of Business has multiple student clubs that may be available to partners for networking and other relevant events.

  • Promotional Materials

    Partners may place promotional materials in the Career Development Center office for students.

  • Customized Events

    Other events for student athletes, veterans, and/or specific student populations may be offered throughout the year. Depending on engagement options, employers may also conduct tailored events in collaboration with the Career Development Center.

  • OPED Discount

    The Office of Professional and Executive Development (OPED) trains and develops organizational teams through courses and custom programs. Partners can receive a discount on a customized OPED program.
