Networking Opportunities

Connecting Employers to Faculty

The Center for Career Development team works directly with employers. Employers are often very interested in connecting with specific faculty and departments so that they can better target students with job and internship opportunities. Ideally, employers would like to develop mutually beneficial relationships with faculty. We serve as the bridge between you and them, and we are happy to support in whatever way possible. 

Career Fairs and Other Special Events

The Henderson State University Center for Career Development is hosting the Fall 2021 Virtual Career Fairs. These events allow for tremendous networking opportunities for our faculty and students. Employers are eager to know the faculty and students working within specific departments. We encourage you and your students to visit with vendors at each of our regularly scheduled events.
