What is LABOR MARKET INFORMATION?

  • Consider inviting a member of the OCS staff to departmental meetings, departmental colloquium series, faculty lunches, academic advisor training, new faculty receptions.
  • Consider allocating departmental funding for internships, as well as research – and when selecting students for summer research funding, consider hiring first years and sophomores. First years especially find it difficult to obtain paid summer internships and increasingly juniors need to complete an internship the summer before senior year to secure a job offer.

    No funding? Offering unpaid opportunities for academic credit are equally as valuable.

  • Parker Dewey - Parker Dewey helps to connect students to Micro-Internships. Micro-Internships are short-term, paid, professional assignments that are similar to those given to new hires or interns. Students from all majors can execute professional assignments to build and demonstrate skills while exploring a variety of career paths.
  • Emphasize the skills our students are developing through their studies in the discipline.  Employers are looking for students to articulate these skills and offer tangible examples as part of the interview process. You can easily provide opportunities for students to develop “soft skills” in your classroom by offering students the opportunity to work in groups or complete a presentation.
