  • Resume Reviews:  Basic, Intermediate and Advanced Resume presentations can be customized to meet the needs of your class.  In most cases, to accommodate the number of resume reviews that are course assignments for the Basic Resume presentation, the classroom presentation must be held in a computer lab.  With advance notice, we can work with you to reserve the space.  If you are not going to assign a resume related project as a part of coursework or for extra credit then the resume program can be presented in a Smart Classroom setting.

  • Mock Interviews:  Basic (general questions) and Customized (career/position specific) Mock Interviews are offered by the Career Development Center.  Peer-to-peer, group and individual options are available. In most cases, the Basic Mock Interview is the individual experience for students participating in a classroom assignment or group mock interviews.

  • Career Events and Job Fairs:  Class attendance at career events and job fairs is also welcome with advance notice to ensure the event is appropriate for meeting your learning outcomes and so that we may prepare handouts.  Check the respective event web page for pre-registration information, if applicable.

  • Class Presentations by Employers/Alumni Mentors:  Many employers and Clarion alumni who recruit at Clarion are willing to give class presentations on topics that relate to your curriculum. Contact the Career Development Center, at 393-2323 or email recruit@clarion.edu if you are interested in having an employer speak to your classes.  Also, please let us know if you are bringing someone to campus to speak with your class or RSO so that support your efforts.
