For Faculty

Office of Career Education Overview

Our Role as Career Educators

As Career Educators, we help students and alumni explore and apply for internships, full-time employment, as well as plan for graduate and professional school. We do not offer job or internship placement. Our role is to assist in developing strategies for success and to provide resources. We invite you to encourage Arcadia students to meet with us early and often to help make the most of their educational experience.  

  • A team of professional Career Educators who are available to meet with students individually. 
  • Career Peer Advisors who assist with resumes and starting an internship/job search. 
  • A wide array of career events throughout the academic year.
  • Handshake, online career hub with numerous job and internship postings 
  • An on-campus interview program for students to connect with employers for internships and jobs. 

Events, Presentations and Course Requirements

To request a class presentation or to let us know if you are requiring students to use our services or attend career events, please complete our faculty engagement form. This is very helpful for us to ensure staffing and resources during peak times.

We are delighted when faculty encourage students to attend our career events. Some professors even require attendance as part of a classroom assignment. We are glad to discuss partnering with you on delivering career content to your classes. Additionally, we can facilitate connections with employers who are eager to speak to your classes.

Career Resources for Your Classes

We invite you to share our career guides and presentations on career development topics. The OCE Community on Canvas features helpful career guides including interviewing, writing resumes and CV's and more. We also have uploaded PowerPoint presentations on career development topics which you can download and customize.

Learn how e3 has helped your Faculty Peers!

The e3 Career Action Plan is an integrative system that helps our students prepare for transitioning from college to careers. Too often, students wait until their junior or senior year to start thinking about internships and careers. They really should be working on a career plan as soon as they enter AU. The e3 Career Action Plan allows students to progress through a series of professional networking steps that can set them up for success when it comes time to look for an internship or full-time job. In my experience, students who regularly use the resources at OCE at different intervals throughout their program, find it much easier to find an internship they love and receive good job offers during their senior year. 

Integrating the e3 Career Action Plan into the seminar courses is a smart way to ensure that all of our students, regardless of major, career plans, or year, will utilize the many different OCE resources, and are prepared for the next steps beyond graduation." 

-Meg Nolan, Ed.D || School of Global Business

"For the first time, I required students to participate in Practice Interviews with the Experts this semester. All of my students found this to be an enlightening experience. I also had a representative from the Office of Career Education speak to the class twice: once about the e3Career Action Plan early in the semester, and once about interviewing. Next semester I will require student participation with the e3 Career Action Plan by asking for screenshots at the beginning and end of the semester."

Job and Internship Referrals

Often faculty and staff are contacted by former students and employers who share job or internship openings at their organizations. When you receive a job or internship posting email it to us at and we can post to Handshake. Faculty and staff also receive requests to provide recommendations or references for current and former students seeking employment. For more information on how you can help students and alumni in their career search, review the National Association of Colleges and Employers' Faculty Guide to Ethical and Legal Standards in Student Hiring.
