Programs, Panels and Speakers

Your organization is unique and important to us! Our office can assist in partnering within RIT to enhance your organization’s visibility to students and the university's community overall--consider sharing your knowledge and advice as part of our career programming.

•      Present on a Career Search Topic as part of our programming for co-op, graduating students or alumni. Spend an hour or two talking to students (or alumni) about ways to promote their candidacy through resume and cover letter writing, effective interviewing, networking, email etiquette, on-the-job success or other areas of interest to you. You can also participate in panel discussions on career related topics with other employers.

•      Share Your Expertise.  Can you offer tips and advice to students and alumni in your career field, or give general job search suggestions?  We’re developing video playlists on our You Tube channel to highlight alumni and employer career paths in a wide variety of industries and fields. This will give students a chance to learn more about the careers they’ve chosen from experts already working in those fields.  Join our growing library and give others a glimpse into your professional life. 

•      Be a Guest Speaker. Interested in speaking to classes, groups, or student organizations on campus about your work, career field, or profession? As a Guest Speaker we will arrange a time and location for you to speak (formally or informally) with our students in every discipline at RIT.  We offer programs on specific career fields, as well as job search techniques programs, and also workshops geared for young and experienced alumni professionals.  We also have an RIT Alumni Job Club, and would be pleased to have you facilitate a session, on a topic of interest to you. 

Other Ideas?  We’re open to ideas you may have to assist our office in providing programs and services to students and alumni.  Just contact us to share your suggestions at 585-475-2301 and ask for Louise Carrese, Senior Associate Director for Employer Relations, or email her at ltcoce@rit.edu.
