As a faculty member at Westchester Community College you play a crucial role in referring students. Career Counselors help students determine the right major/career based upon their interests, career goals, skills, values, and personality. We administer a variety of inventories and help students research majors and career possibilities. We are a student’s best resource for job outlook, salary, and employment trends as well as help in developing a job search plan and the tools to be a successful job seeker.
Referring a Student to the Internship Program
Teaching faculty are in an excellent position to assess a student’s readiness and appropriateness for an Internship. (In fact, students need a recommendation from a faculty member as part of the application process). In many instances we need referrals from the teaching faculty as placement opportunities are developed. So working together, we can optimize placement opportunities and experiences for students. In the departments where students can earn academic credit for their placement, faculty act as advisors and mentors while the students are working.
