Refer a Student
We know that career conversations take place all across campus. The conversations you have with students about their aspirations for life after Denison are so important and can often set the stage for further career growth. The Knowlton Center greatly appreciates those who partner with us and encourage students to utilize our services. When the time comes that you feel a student you’ve been talking to should meet with a career coach feel free to refer them to us. In career coaching sessions we have discussions on a wide range of topics including
- Identifying career interests and exploration options
- Navigating the uncertainty tied to careers
- Learning how to network
- Planning to get the most out of the summer (e.g., internships, volunteering, summer job, etc.)
- Articulating experiences on resumes, in networking settings and in interviews
- Assistance with preparing professional materials (e.g., résumé and cover letter)
- Guidance on job search and interview preparation (mock interview)
- Deciding between and negotiating offers
- And much, much more!
