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 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 student-facing faculty and staff are welcome to participate.  If interested in joining the next cohort to support students’ career journeys you can attend one of the training sessions offered throughout the academic year. During this training we will cover the career development cycle, how our office supports and works with students, competency development, and experiential learning. You will leave the training with actionable ways to discuss career development with students & a resources toolkit to answer common career questions.
