Interested in building your brand on campus to improve your recruiting results? We suggest that you partner with us through the programs and services that we offer to students. You will find that the CEEC staff are responsive to your needs. At the Mount, you will liaison with one lead team member making your connection with us easy and efficient.

Below are ways that you can connect with students and alumni.

Speaking Engagements

Present to students about their career options through either of the following options:

Career & Experiential Education Center (CEEC) Courses: The CEEC offers three courses for Mount students: Career Exploration for the Undecided Major, Professional Development and Building Your Professional Edge. Career Exploration focuses on helping students reflect on their skills, talents and interests and facilitate career and/or major decision-making. Professional Development prepares our students for co-op and post graduate positions through seminars about resume and cover letter writing, mock interviews and job search strategies. Building Your Professional Edge is an advanced class that further develops the competencies necessary for career readiness. Students develop a branding strategy and integrate career planning elements into a personal career marketing plan.

Connect to Your Future: This event was designed to allow alumni and friends of the Mount to come to campus to speak to students about their career options. In this casual, round table setting, students are able to ask questions about the designated career path. Connect to Your Future typically takes place in October.

Social Media

Join our LinkedIn group: We encourage employers to join our CEEC’s LinkedIn group as we encourage our students and alumni to do the same.
