For Faculty

Link the Classroom to Careers

A critical part of our mission is to partner with you, the faculty and staff, in helping students ultimately realize their life goals. We depend on the inclusion of, support and referrals from our colleagues. We feel very fortunate at Stockton University that we all work hand-in-hand.  Some career development items of interest to you as a faculty member and preceptor are listed below.

Our staff is available for presentations on a variety of career related topics. With advanced notice, we can also secure alumni and/or employer speakers. Topics have included, but are not limited to: resume writing, interviewing, job search, and graduate school search. Schedule a presentation now!

Sometimes your preceptee may ask, "What are my career options within a given major?" Let them know that in addition to your assistance they can talk to a career advisor in the Career Center. More specifically preceptees sometimes ask you "What can I do with a Major in __________?" For beginning answers to that question, click here for resources. You may also want to share and discuss this handout which focuses on what students should do each year of college in order to stay on track with their career development.

Students may come to the Career Center and get editing assistance in writing personal statements for admissions, discuss the timeline and strategy for the application process or access our extensive collection of reference books.  Additionally, students can tap into our collection of web links that include resources to search for graduate programs and information and prep tools for graduate tests.

Our primary career management system, StocktonWorks, allows students to search for and apply for jobs and internships, post multiple resumes and cover letters, maintain an online personal calendar for career events...and much more!  If you are interested in having access to this system, click here to create an account.   Select NJ, then Stockton University,  and continue from there.  Also, check out our page on Job  & Internship Searching.
