What are we doing?
Create a structure that builds capacity for career advising in our faculty, staff, and alumni in the Channels.
Designate faculty, staff, and alumni leaders to help Career & Community Engagement Center staff identify employers, alumni, and community members for local and regionaljob shadowing within each Channel.
Identify Channel programming opportunities that already exist within Beloit College (speaker series, etc.) and imagine future Channel programming opportunities
Assist in developing curriculum for the ¼ credit advising courses, especially in ways that integrate Career Development and Community-Based Learning content.
Develop pathways to build faculty and staff capacity for advising on and evaluating professional portfolio documents. This may take the form of reimagining campus employment systems (e.g. Powerhouse initiative) and creating template assignments to be shared in courses.
Structure the resume and information interviews requirements in the ¼ advising courses that take into account the current and future staffing levels in the Career & Community Engagement Center.
Identify a new software platform that can house a more robust alumni mentoring program.
Provide direction for future job shadowing programming, including structure, timing, outcomes, and capacity for growth, taking into account current and future staffing levels of Career & Community Engagement Center and Development and Alumni Relations.
Expand communication networks, both formal and informal, between Development and Alumni Relations and faculty and staff departments that work with alumni advisors
Channels and Professional Groups will be operational no later than AY20-21.
¼ credit advising courses must be up and running for AY20-21, and could be piloted this year.
