Over the last four years, the University of Connecticut has built one of the most robust and successful Career Champion programs in the country.
Nearly 800 faculty, staff, alumni, and employer participants learn about current career-related trends, resources, and language to have more confident and meaningful career conversations with students.
In our last webinar with Nancy Bilmes, Director of the Center for Career Development at UConn, in October 2022, Nancy shared how her team built their Career Champion program. In this follow-up webinar, Nancy will share:
- How her team has scaled the program to nearly 800 participants through various strategies, including academic liaisons, faculty fellows, presentation and meeting follow-up, first destination referral outreach, and more
- What outcomes they’ve seen, including survey results that indicate Career Champions refer students to the career center about 25% more often than non-Career Champions
- How they’re continuing to engage Champions and what new channels they’re leveraging
- And more
