Career-Related Classroom Assignments
Integrating career development in the classroom is easy with the career-related classroom assignments that we have produced. Use as designed or make changes to meet objectives of your course.
Don't Cancel Class Program
UMass Lowell’s Career & Co-op Center understands that your missing a class may sometimes be unavoidable. When those situations arise, our Don’t Cancel Class program provides a way for your class to meet as usual, but with one of our career professionals who will deliver a career-related presentation.
We strongly recommend attaching a for-credit assignment to our visit to your class. Some suggestions:
- require attendance,
- require students to log into our online recruiting system and complete their profile,
- require students to post a professional profile on LinkedIn,
- require students to attend one of our career events.
Request a presentation for your class.
Please allow us as much time as possible to schedule a presentation; we receive many requests and do our best to accommodate as many as we can.
Information about Majors and Career Paths
Need some ideas to assist students in exploring how their curriculum relates to careers? Our online Exploring Majors and Careers resource can help.
ProPath is the Career & Co-op Center's career development model for undergraduates. ProPath encourages students to participate in individual career-focused activities as well as workshops to gain the knowledge and skills to obtain experiential opportunities as early as possible in their academic careers.
Ethical and Legal Standards in Student Hiring
As a member of the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), UMass Lowell's Career Services & Cooperative Education Center adheres to NACE's ethical standards in recruiting and holds recruiting employers to ethical standards, as well. These guidelines for faculty outline ethical standards for faculty involvement in recruitment of college students.
The Career & Co-op Center can offer assistance if you would like to find an employer to speak to a class. Let us know if we can help you make the connection.
Many faculty work with employers during the course of the year. If you are a faculty member who knows of an employer who might be interested in employing UMass Lowell students, please contact the Career & Co-op Center by phone: 978-934-2355 or email: email@example.com to provide us with contact information.
