Career Services

Faculty and Staff Resources

Faculty and staff play a critical role in helping Aims Community College students prepare for their career pathways. The following services and resources can inspire career conversations with students about topics such as soft skills development, resumes and interviews. Please provide at least two weeks' notice per request and understand that requests will be honored based on staff availability.

Classroom Workshops

Career Services can come and present to your group or class of students. These engaging, interactive workshops help students learn about and develop the skills and tools that employers seek and that they will need to be career-ready.

Students will learn resume structure and how to articulate their skills based on their unique experiences so they stand out from the crowd! 

This workshop is mostly lecture-based with some practice and direct application.

Students will learn the process of preparing for an interview, including how to answer common and tough interview questions. 

This workshop is part lecture and part practice (mock interviews).

Students will gain a comprehensive understanding of the eight NACE career readiness competencies and be equipped with the essential skills and knowledge for a successful transition into the professional world.

This workshop is part activity-based with reflection and discussion.

A Career Services staff member will visit your class for 15-30 minutes to review services, events and resources available to students. Help connect students to Career Services services today!

Have another career-related topic in mind? Reach out and we'll work together to bring it to life.

I encourage our faculty members to invite Aims Career Services to the classroom. As Early Childhood Education Students prepare to graduate, one of their last stops is a Capstone class. Lynn from Career Services brings her wealth of knowledge and her love of students to my classroom twice each semester. She has helped students prepare up-to-date resumes and cover letters. Students also participate in mock interviews to prepare for what lies ahead after graduation.

The Career Services team is all about providing current and former students the tools and confidence they need to showcase the skills that they gained while at Aims. Knowing that their services are available for a lifetime is another benefit of being a part of Aims Community College.
