Experiential Learning & Job Shadow Partnership
The Career Center partners with several academic programs for required academic cooperative education, internships, field experiences, and more. The Career Center can assist with creating an MOU, helping students with finding qualified and eligible experiential learning opportunities, solidifying partnerships with employers who offer experiential learning, confirming student and employer information, information needed for registration, and more.
In addition to experiential learning, the Career Center can also partner with you on job shadow and informational interviews. These experiences for students are especially helpful during FYE and other gateway courses, when a student is being introduced to their major and would like a observational experience to confirm their career choice or to learn more about what types of careers are available to them. Consider making job shadow and/or informational interview a required component of your course; we can assist the student with finding the opportunity, connecting with the employer, and on the day-of, and then we can provide a detailed report regarding which of your students have completed job shadows and/or informational interviews.
Career Coach (https://tri-c.lightcastcc.com/) is our NEW career exploration platform. Utilize this resource to help perspective, current and graduated students or community members discover majors, in-demand careers, and programs that align with their interests. This is a simple-to-use tool that provides informative, user-friendly data that users can interact with to learn more about themselves, careers, and programs that fit.
Career Coach supports career exploration through:
- Interest assessment with simple, printable results
