Don't Cancel That Class

To maintain the energy and motivation of your students, we can deliver a career seminar so you don’t have to cancel your class. Faculty can choose from a variety of career topics or we can tailor a career seminar based on your students needs.

Most seminars are between 50 and 80 minutes. The seminars are delivered with a balance of practice, lecture, group discussion, technology and self-reflection.

Following the seminar, we will survey the students to determine the relevancy of the topic, student learning and satisfaction. You will be provided a copy of the seminar, the student evaluations and any required attendance record. Please ensure your students understand this is a regularly scheduled class and their attendance is required.
