Career Influencers Program

In Fall 2020, The Center for Career Services launched a new program called the Career Influencers Program. The Career Influencers Program equips faculty and staff to support GW undergraduate students’ career readiness and success through conversations about internships, careers, and post-GW plans. Most faculty and staff are already having these conversations with students. The goal is to help enhance these conversations by providing resources and support when navigating career-related questions.

All faculty and staff who meet with undergraduate students are welcome to participate. If interested in joining the Spring 2021 cohort to support students’ career journeys you can attend a 1-hour training session offered throughout the semester. The training will cover our resources, the career development cycle, and how we can help you support students. You'll come out of the training with a toolkit of resources and a better knowledge of where to refer students.

Spring 2021 training dates:

  • Wednesday, February 3
  • Tuesday, March 9
  • Friday, April 9
